many moods

I had Emili at my house from Sunday evening to Monday evening..We spend lots of Mondays together when she is off of school, and I always look forward to those days. But tonight I was glad to see her go home! I am exhausted. She is 6 years old and her energy knows no bounds, at least that's how it seems to me. We laughed together, cooked together, did some sewing. We tried to take a nap, but Emili woke me and said, "Grandma, I can't sleep, you're snoring too loud." So, by tonight, Emili's dark side was showing. Check out the photos

Sunday night, all smiles.

Monday morning, deep concentration on task.

Monday, 6 PM, Crabbier than a bear!

A little bit of sleep and we both will be just fine again.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was a lovely day today, we did take a walk before the grouchiness invaded. Almost 40 degrees. Spring can't be too far away now. Our Christmas Cactus had almost finished blooming, but the recent cold snap set some more bloossoms. The plant is older than I am, we inherited it from Hilda, Dave's mom.It often blooms from Thanksgiving until Easter.
This Amaryliss is my Dad's. The just opening buds are almost as beautiful as when they are mature. He keeps the bulbs from year to year, and they are really lovely.
Maybe I am stretching it a bit............but I think Emili and I, like the plants, need a little rest and we will be blooming again soon. Corny, but true.
