Day dreaming while watching cartoons

This is the way I babysit at My youngest  daughter's home. 

While they are right next to Me playing on their train set (My Son in Law finally bolted it all down.)
Yes,I play and talk to them for 10-12 hours at a time. To keep Me going though sometimes I drift off,not to sleep-like My hubby-but I drift off into day-dreaming of what I want to do at home , places I want to go and the like.
My first few makes of this holiday season.A silver bluish  mercury glass pot and new flowers with battery candle  from sales at Tia Pan , A Marie Osmond  decor store.
The yummy smell of cinnamon to get Me in the holiday mood.I just broke a hole in the bag-left store tag and just added a bow :)I'm so hoping Paul doesn't think it's too much, like...."What is that chemical smell ?" He prefers no extra smells on anything.
This window I picked up at Big Lots or somewhere like that ?It had a scarecrow looking from behind the window.When I saw it I knew I would tear the scarecrow out....Uoh..... the things I plan to do with it :)

I dream of future vacations too while their watching cartoons.Places so dreamy like My crowded English village.

The little girl in Me comes out this time of year.
Imagined and.....

real places  to go.This ones on My list.If We could all go together-what a party that would be....Well, back to cartoons :)
Love, Grammie Denise....Partying with Make It Pretty  Monday @ Dedicated House. The buttons on My sidebar

The little girl comes out in me also at this time of the year, Denise. A lovely time of the year, and so much better when you have little ones around! We are blessed indeed with our grandchildren. Really enjoyed the post and the photos that went with it.

It's nice to be able to get on the floor with the little ones. I love your cinnamon pinecones...they smell so good, don't they? Enjoy your week!

Mmm...I can almost smell the sweet cinnamon :) Looks like a wonderful time, sweet Denise. Have a beautiful week!

Hugs to you!

Dearest Denise!

We were built to dream. We were designed to live in the garden of delights, to create, like our Father. It is no wonder that we want to reach to the heavens to fulfill what we hope for, because complete loves resides apart from this temporary experience.

I want to thank you SO MUCH for your comment (it is always so great to see you!) but your comment lifted my spirits because I truly want to write.

Thank you for your faith in my writing. I have a long way to go. BLESSINGS! Anita

You are so lucky you get to spend this time with your grandchildren. I can only wish. Perhaps one day. I am sure my grandsons would enjoy that motoring play set your grands have! How wonderful! Thanks for visiting me and Happy Thanksgiving! xx

I can tell you have fun babysitting and also taking some moments to day dream about projects and places to travel to.

Thank you for visiting. I had a look around your blog and was totally impressed. Beautiful art and decorations. Love that Christmas village!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
