Wordless Wednesday


I'm terribly late this morning in getting my Wordless Wednesday post up. This photo of my granddaughter Emily was taken the same day as last week's WW post of another granddaughter Sarah. The day holds some very simple and pleasant memories for me. I'm not sure Emily felt the same way as she found herself bored and spent part of our time there laying on the picnic table while her younger sister walked the beach. I think Sarah got the best of the day... what do you think?

Happy Wordless Wednesday all!

Marsha -- thanks for stopping by Penny Lane.
I stopped by early this am and your post was not up. I thought maybe you were still away.

I am glad you have such wonderful memories of that very special day.
I like the beach scene the best, if I had to choose.

"Teenagers" right? Reminds me of me when I was one, my Grandmother would say "you would cut off your nose to spite your face" Well hopefully she got to the beach later that day! Thanks for stopping by mine. Happy WW!

You've all reminded me that I sometimes take life far too seriously. Thanks to your comments, I can see the value of just laying back and taking it easy, no matter where you are. I guess I just remember her being bored more than appreciating her ability to chill out on the table! OUCH! It makes my back hurt to just think about laying there!

Oh, I definitely think Emily should have been off walking the beach with Sarah! For SURE! What's WRONG with that child??? Silly girl! :)

I think laying of a table is an awesome way to pass some time. I noticed her cell phone was close in case someone tried to contact her.

This is a great shot, Marsha. It's such a peaceful moment - both in the image you share and the scene you describe.

I'm so glad that WW pointed me in your direction. My entry is up here, and I hope you have a moment to drop by and say hi:

Having time to laze around on the bench to relax is something I'm looking forward too! So I guess your granddaughter is feeling good about it :)

Hanging with Grandma is the best! How I loved to do that. She and I would nap in our wicker chairs on her sunporch. How I loved it. Thanks for this picture and your thoughts!

Cool photo - and don't worry about the boredness. It's a phase, an age, a time they'll look back on and wish they had time to be bored again!
