Good Morning 1 year late : )

     Good Morning Everyone:
Wow, it is going to be interesting coming back to Bloglandia after an absence of more than one year.
Much has transpired with me; surgeries, moved to the high desert (the heat is killing me), I am enjoying a studio inside of a garage (I actually have half the garage for my arts and crafts : ), I get to cook for my best friend's 94 year old mom and it is fun since I love to cook and she says she loves to eat the food : ). 
My youngest granddaughter turned 2 on July 29th and she is the best!!!
She is wearing her tutu I made her for her special day. What a joy she is for me : )
My youngest daughter, Malaika holding her daughter (my 4th grandchild), Malaika II, on her 2nd birthday. Malaika's friend, Jeri, is a fantasy face painter at Universal City Walk in North Hollywood and she painted Mimi's face. I love her artistic abilities and patience with children!!! 
I am the proverbial happy and proud grandma/mam ma/granny whatever name you want to put on it : )
Well, my friends, thank you for coming by and I will be back : )


  1. Carole honey if I had a nickle for everytime I wondered what happened to you I would be rich. lol

  2. I have thought of you and little Malaika so often! You look absolutely gorgeous! I do so hope that you are well on the mend! I saw this post when we were on vacation and tried to reply but the internet connection bugged out on me! First thing though when I got home was to post and tell you you are missed and loved! I hope this means you are going to be around more often. I can't wait to see some pics of your studio. It sounds fabulous! Big huge hugs and smooches to you my lovely friend!

  3. Hi dearest Carole,
    I was thrilled to get your message. I just got on the computer after a couple of days away from even checking e-mails and saw your message. Thank you for letting me know about the video. I will look it up as soon as I leave here. How sweet that you would take the time to stop by and say hi. As you can see I don't post as much as I used to LOL! Just sooo much to do.

    Like you, the best job in the world is being grandma to these beautiful little ones in our lives. I have had many staying one at a time this summer and it has been a joy.

    Your little g-daughter is such a doll! I love the tutu you made for her...she is a luck girl having you! I adore that picture of you two together.
    sending lots of love...

  6. Hi there,
    Good Morning 1 year late : )
    Fascinating! I recently found a considerable amount of informative stuff in your article. Keep up the fine job!

  7. We saw the commodity sector have a very good day yesterday with an across the board rally. We had very few stocks which were red on our watch louis vuitton outlet lists yesterday and although we want to go bullish like the rest of traders out there we just cannot find it in ourselves to do it. It continues to appear to be a trader's market, and we fully expect another move downwards on bad news from Europe. The issues in Spain have not been solved, and to solve them hermes outlet would put Italy in peril. Until we can get some sort of a eurobond, then the Europeans will continue to put out these fires and so long as that continues we will have volatility in the market. We have been replica handbags negative coal for some time, and we will have an article on the matter which we will submit tomorrow with our latest thoughts.
