"Directory" of the postings about "The Grandchildren" from the year 2010.

      I'm feeling 'the blues' today, so I know I've got to do something(s) to try and pull myself up out of it. Insert here - Why are they called "the blues"? I like the color blue! Shouldn't these feelings be called 'the dull browns' or something?  Nothing against the color brown either, I like that color too. But ya must admit that there are some dull shades of it that just fit better with these melancholy feelings, than shades of the color blue do. Elton John's song "And that's why their called the blues" does not answer my question, it just expounds on what type of feelings the expression entails. So that's no help. Do any of you know why?
    So anyways, I've got 'um, and I know I need to do something(s) to pull myself up out of them. Thus I figured that today was the perfect day to create the:
    "Directory" of the postings about "The Grandchildren" from the year 2010.

   Doing this posting did help my "dull browns" (;-p). Counting your blessings / reminiscing about your blessings IS therapeutic!

   Now on to step #2. For me, cooking can also be therapeutic. So I decided to attempt making a winter stew using up the left over Pork Loin in the fridge. I had potatoes and onions on hand, and our neighbor Chris just brought over some carrots I called and asked to borrow. Hopefully it will turn out delicious. If it does, then yup, I'll be posting about it. By the way, how did you guess that I would? o;-p

   But before I go to the kitchen, here are a couple of pictures of my sweetheart :-)

  1. had come (on Feb. 9th) via email from "our" Kate - My vote is for the "olive greens". Or maybe the greys. But you're right...blue is too pretty.

    Hope remembering all the fun you had with Analyse cheered you up. How about Friday for a get-together? I work at 1 out at Grand Valley but I should be done by 3 at the latest. Let me know! :)


    I had replied, ""dull gray" totally works! Even better than "dull brown" does!!!
    It's a date for Fri.!!! :-) (there is a brownie tucked away in the small drawer by the stove for you)

    I'm headed out to my 4th chiropractor appointment... it's HELPING!!! :-)"
