Where is she? Why has she not posted lately? Could it be that her "little something", was too
little? She was not sure if she should share her "Lincoln Logs" post, or her "punch balloon"
post. She felt she had already over shared her "amazing sunset posts" and her "country scene"
posts, hence, she did not post:)
"Lincoln Logs"...they have been in my life for as long as I can remember. I clearly remember
years ago, watching my younger brothers sitting on the family room floor, building with their
Lincoln Log sets. Now, fast forward, I find myself watching my own grandchildren, time and
time again, pulling the big, colorful box out of the cupboard, and building their own creations.
The bushes in the front of her building, were compliments of the boxwood outside our door.
And then, I watched her add the plastic fireplace and television...a 2015 edition of a log house.
It was the first time for this little guy to tackle a project, and he took it
Yesterday, I found our oldest granddaughter working on a log project in the living room, and
later in the day, I found her brother building his version of a car barn. I would like to thank

Another favorite in our grandchildren's lives, are the punch balloons. I buys bags of them, four
bright colored punch balloons in one pack, at the dollar store. The elastic band is already
secured on them, leaving only the blowing up part to be completed:) That is where I come in,
unless my husband is home, and then he uses the air compressor in the garage.
These big, colorful, sturdy balloons provide hours of fun for our grandchildren, no matter their
There is competition among them, in the continuous way they bounce them. Actually,
I like to join them in this. Now, some of them are into decorating their balloons too,
with permanent markers.
Last Fall, I even attempted to do a picture using the balloons. What a fun, colorful picture
it turned out to be!
Simple things happen in our home, and often times it involves balloons.
So there you have it...my summer happenings, along with some of the most gorgeous
sunsets ever, and some of the most beautiful summer skies, overflowing with
white, fluffy clouds.
Happy Friday! I feel like it just was Friday. How about you?
Is this summer flying by for you too?
Do you like punch balloons:)?
