I see the moon and the moon sees me...

Full Moon from August 10

I've thought about stopping in here to say hello and tell you about all the things that are going on, but the days just keep on dashing by and I haven't taken the time to stop and blog.  I took this picture for you on August 10th and here it is now August 18th!

I love the moon and so do all my grandkids.  They can always spot her in the night sky as well as in  the daytime sky.  I think that's cool.  The moon connects us all, in a way, since we all see the same one even though we are in different places and in different situations and in different time zones.  I don't worship the moon, I worship the Creator of the moon, but I do appreciate the moon's beauty which gives me a sense of smallness in the universe.  I think that feeling small is a good thing for me. 

Speaking of my grandkids, I'm on Grammy Duty this week for several days.  M&G brought Bee and Rootie Toot here to stay with us while they take a work-vacation.  They arrived Saturday night and will stay with us until Thursday sometime.  The cousins have been joining us for fun and playing too.  By the end of the day, we've had lots of romping & roping, climbing rocks & picking flowers, making mud cupcakes and birthday cakes.  They've pulled carrots from the garden to eat fresh with their fringed carrot tops on, and they've picked green tomatoes for their potions (which Grammy was not happy about!).  I'm glad we've had nice, warm days so we can play outdoors for the majority of the time. Sleep is sweet at the end of each day.

At bedtime we read at least two books and then sing a couple songs.  One night I started to sing Jesus Loves Me and Bee said, "Gram, sing one of YOUR songs."  It' tickled me that she has now assigned certain songs to me because I introduced them to her and Rootie.  Some of MY songs are:  Home on the Range, I've Been Workin' on the Railroad, Get Along Little Dogies, Hickory Dickory Dock, Hey Didddle Diddle the Cat and the Fiddle, and more.  All the grandkids are singers.  That makes me happy.  

OnlyDaughter and I spent a day canning Colorado Peaches a few days ago.  We canned 24 quarts of peaches and split them between us.  We also saved enough peaches out of our boxes to eat some fresh.  I baked a peach pie yesterday and boy, was it delicious!  I love those juicy globes of sweet nectar!  

Well, my time is now up.  The wee ones will be up from their naps in just minutes so I'm going to wrap this up and say good bye, and thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying each summer day.  Soon the days will turn cool and summer will pass.  Look up and see the moon!

I see the Moon and the Moon sees me,
And the moon sees Somebody I can't see.
God Bless the Moon and God Bless me,
And God Bless the one that I can't see. 

God looked down on me from above,
And He picked you out for me to love,
He picked you out from all the rest,
Because He knew that I'd love you the best. 


  1. Aw, I do love the moon. I like to say, "Hello, Mr. Moon."
    Your songs! That's awesome! I'll have to sing some of your songs to my grands. They request stories more than songs. Hmmmmm.
    James is coming over tonight while his parents go out to dinner. I plan to rock and sing Home of the Range.
    Have fun with those grands! I bet you DO sleep like a log!
    You're right. Let's cherish our summer. It's so nice to us.
    Yummy! Colorado peaches!

  2. I love taking photos of the moon even though my little camera strains to get the shot! :) Glad you're having lots of Granny fun this week. :)

  3. I love that old song about the moon. Grandma time is special time isn't it? Enjoy your days with them this week.

  4. Ahhhh, it sounds like the perfect summer for the grandbabies. My best memories of childhood are the weeks that I would go spend with Grandma and the cousins -- without the parents LOL. I laughed when I read "which Grammy was not happy about!" -- what can you do but enjoy the memory! And I'd rather have my grandkids enjoy the tomatoes than whatever is eating mine -- presumably squirrels and chipmunks!

  5. Oh yes...some of my favorite songs to sing, too. How sweet it must be to listen to your grands sing...

  6. What a sweet blog post. I can't think of anything better than summer days with grand-kids! And putting up peaches with my daughter! Sounds totally perfect to me!! - Dori -

  7. Sweet song! Isn't it lovely to have things that are shared within the family, loved from generation to generation? I'm glad you have so much good time with your grands. It will mean the world to them when they are older.

  8. I always sing that moon song to any children who are around when the moon is showing bright in the sky. How dear the moon is - thank you, LORD!

  9. Grammy duty sounds delightful and so does all your preach goodies. I've been enjoying some peaches, too. They are soooooo good.

  10. Sounds like a great way to spend summer days. Oh the memories you are creating. CLarice

  11. Time with family is so precious. Last weekend my cousins came through with their 3 kids. We had a grand time. Those peaches sound grand.
