” Interacting”

Another month nearly at the end and as the song goes the days dwindle down to a precious few. Not growing up without the advantages of a grandmother has taken a told. Speaking neither negatively nor positively its just affected me in an unexpected unique way. Now I am a grandmother, myself. Have a very special bond with my grandchildren, I think never having a grandmother myself. So for me it is a wonderful experience. Actually not seeing them on a daily basis really doesn’t bother me. Over the many years have had seen them grow up into fine ladies and gentlemen. My daughter-in-law and my son have a website which has all the activities and glorious pictures of all over the years. I go on it periodically to see what is going on with all of them individually and collectively. It is fantastic.
Again not growing up with holidays to the max it seems very odd to me, as well it should be. Speaking of one holiday in particular being Halloween which is the eve of All Saints Day if anyone is interested. Never went out to trick or treating as a child. My mentioning this is appropo to what it am about to script: often wondered why and for the longest time now I know: when my younger son when he was quite small ask me” Mom why is it that Dad makes such a big deal with costumes and masks and all the Halloween things and you don’t think of it that way” David and Andre use to watch scary horror movies at Halloween especially. I just wasn’t into that. In fact I would trend going down the Halloween isle because the faces would scare me. Though when Ian and Andre were very young I would go out with them as they were decked out in their favorite costumes for trick or treating. I recall have a Friendly bag with me.
Living here in Ga. you have a lot of bugs. Which there is a song by Pearl Jam called” Bugs” It goes in part Bugs everywhere. Bugs in your ears. Bugs in your nose. Bugs on the walls. Speaking of bugs, there are mosquitos by the ton. There other evening when one of my friends were outside, there were mosquitoes galore. I had some Calgon Lavander and Vanilla body spray which I simply adore and the mosquitos apparently did too. As a result I got stung multiple times everywhere it seemed. Still have them and putting some anti itch hortorzone cream on which definitely helps. Got it from my roommate. So that is life in a nutshell. It is what it is.
