Two Days and a Tag!

The Cradle (Le berceau)
French Impressionist Berthe Morisot

"Is the babe young? When I behold it, it seems more venerable than the oldest man."
Henry David Thoreau

We have left for Virginia to welcome our newest grandson into the family in just two more days! I'll post from there.

Now for a Meme Tag:

ROSIE at Rosie's Whimsy has tagged me with a meme. I am supposed to inform you concerning these five things. (I actually did this part yesterday and saved it to post today)

a) What was I doing 10 years ago?
Trying to rest up from daughter #1’s June 6 wedding.
Getting ready for daughter #2’s August 15 wedding.

b) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today.
Take care of our grandson for the day.
Take grandson to his swim lesson.
Trying to stay cool at the pool – out of the water.
Recovering from being at the pool for one hour in 100 degree real temperature.
Pack for our trip to Virginia on Wednesday to welcome our newest grandson on Friday morning.

c) Snacks I enjoy:
Greek yogurt with almonds and honey
Shortbread cookies
Peanut butter and crackers

d) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay off any debts for everyone in our family
Insure our grandchildren’s college educations
Travel around and around and around and around the world

e) Places I have lived:
Charleston, West Virginia
Raleigh, North Carolina

Now I should tag four other bloggers to do the same thing.

So here goes!
JEANNE at Backyard Neighbor

MONTEE at Palmentto Girl

LYNN at A Mother's Journal

VANESSA at Vanilla Lavender

Consider yourselves tagged and have fun gals!
