Much Anticipated.

October 31, 2007

Here are all those pictures I took on Saturday while visiting with my Grandma. Forgive me…. this is going to be a long post… you have been forewarned. Enjoy.

This is Bob. He is my Grandma’s cat. He’s cute. I know. Can you believe he was a stray?… Somebody really missed out. This is how we spent our Saturday with Grandma.

** he is giving me the stank eye since this is like the 100th picture I took of him – HA! **

Bob and I then got bored of staring at eachother (my Grandma is very, very sick and she was sleeping mostly), so we wondered about the house taking pictures.

After roaming about the house… we went outside into the workshop. My Grandma’s workshop is like and unfinished garage… it was dirty and I didn’t want to venture too far in (fear of spiders, you know).

This is my Grandma. Back in the day. Before I was born. This is my favorite picture of her. She loved that monkey. I love her. And will miss her more than anybody will ever know.

    can i just say i love your photographs?!
    my grandparents last Christmas moved out of the house I had grown up visiting them in. it was a house that looked smelled and was just simply THEM. I was crushed when they told me they were moving. It was so special to them and myself so for Christmas I went through the house taking pictures of every little detail in my own quirky ways. I created a photo album for them and wrote a story for each item explaining why it was important to me—mostly telling stories from my childhood. Your pictures reminded me of that gift I gave them. I remember when they first opened it they both started crying. It sits on their coffee table in their new house now, which I am growing to love—because they are in it.
    Thanks for sharing your pictures, they are wonderful!
