Beautiful and New Things I'm Learning About You

Her Long Toes Make Us Giggle 

Gettin' to know you,
Gettin' to know all about you.
Gettin' to like you,
Gettin' to hope you like me.

Long Fingers Like Daddy

Gettin' to know you,
Putting it my way but nicely.
You are precisely,
My cup of tea.


Happy Mommy 


Gettin' to know you,
Gettin' to feel free and easy.
When I am with you,
Gettin' to to know what to say.

Haven't you noticed,
Suddenly I 'm bright and breezy,
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.

Lots of Heartburn Lots of Hair  

It's been a long road for my daughter and her husband. 
But today, we are overjoyed 
and thankful for every prayer said for this little one.

Our hearts are overflowing with love and joy.

Three Centuries of Milling Grain

The Springhouse in the foreground at the Anselma Mill, Chester Springs, PA

Over 300 years ago, 
the land on which the Anselma Mill stands was once owned by William Penn, 
the founder of Pennsylvania -  
and by US standards 
three centuries is a very long time in history. 

 

In the mid 18th century, 
a mill was built here for local farmers to grind their grain 


Step Into History

On Wednesdays 
the mill hosts a farmer's market 
where you can purchase their stone ground flour and corn meal 
ground with the original colonial era power train.

I think this is all pretty cool.

And so did Mr. Engineer 
who came along and asked the volunteers many questions. 

Mr. Engineer Gets An Explanation

I am one of those people who hates to see one 
pave paradise knock down a mill 
to put up a parking lot shopping mall.

Early Risers



"I have a birthday surprise planned for you." he said.



"We are going to have to get up very early." he said.



"Take all you camera gear." he said.
"Well, not your tripod and flash." he said.



"I'm going to take you on a hot air balloon ride." he said

That's him, Peppy and me.

"He's a keeper," I said

Now it's your turn so
start this sound track and enjoy the ride.

Thanks to my husband for dragging me out of bed at 4am. 
It was totally worth it.
