Grandma Break


Following a lot of other bloggers is a wonderful thing. You get to open your WordPress reader and see so many interesting posts streaming down the page just waiting to be read. I follow writers, readers, travellers, photographers, cooks, grandparents, young people, middle aged people, older people – everyone with their own unique point of view and special location.

But at times this abundance, this potpourri of story is a double-edged sword. The times I watch all those great posts streaming down the page and I have no time to read and know I will never catch up – those times are hard to bear.



But we all need a change of pace at times and the stories will keep coming, fresh and new for when I finish up doing active Grandma duty and have a moment to sit back and relax. For now, it’s go, go, go. Swimming pool, park, go for a walk, play in my room, let’s build a fort, let’s play a game – LET’S PLAY ANYTHING AT ALL! And my all-time favourite – they wanted to play book store and they let me sell my books at their store. What could be more fun?


The swings

Patience all my favourite bloggers, I will be back to read and like very soon. Until then, well – the order of the day here is fun, fun, fun.

  1. Looks like fun, Fran! Enjoy!

  2. I know exactly what you mean, Fran! I’m “in between” things at the moment myself and, of course, there are those grandsons just down the road…Looking forward to catching up with you soon. 🙂

  3. Aww, how great is this?! Really great. You’ve been working hard and deserve some down time, as do these little chicks!

    I hope your’e truly enjoying it, Francis and hey…I also hope your books are a sell-out in that special bookstore!

    Such a sweet, precious time. Tomorrow I get to play with my granddaughter — yippee!

    • The little one’s are sooo cute. My 2 and half year old granddaughter has the neatest little expressions. She is very independent and so always says, “I do all be self.” That means on her own. She cracks me up.

    Life and family ALWAYS should come first! I enjoyed your storyboard ideas on how to write a book, organizing thoughts and your books sound lovely! I will be looking at my local library, unfortunately, I blog there, too! I am on a tight budget but enjoy reading others’ stories and books. I have a desire to write books, mainly have ‘written’ and been declined from publication, children’s books! I draw in pencil, then pen and ink with watercolor so am also illustrating my own books…Continued best wishes for your writing and will read you soon! Smiles, Robin

    • Good luck with all your pursuits. I am a big fan of libraries – for work, play and everything in between. One of my first priorities was to get both of my novels in our local library and it has hardly been on the shelf since it arrived. I want my work available to everyone and the library is the best place to make that happen.

  8. Found your site from your guest storyboard post on Jill’s blog. Just dropped by to say thanks!

    You absolutely made the right decision! I agree that at times it’s necessary for that break.

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
