Satisfied Saturday

It's one hot Saturday, in a place that defines hot! We did some shopping today and could not wait to get home so we could stop getting in and out of the car!! I am ready for a cold front, and it's a long way off!
We got to visit with our grandaughter this week, so this Saturday, I am feeling very satisfied. At 17 months, she's interacting, and doing things to get a reaction out of me. She seems to know I adore her. Spent some time at the beach, she was fearless with the waves. Her mom wished she had more fear. I reminded mom that this is why pastors use the analogy of a child's trust to explain how we are to trust our Heavenly Father.
Also went to the zoo, they go every week, and she knows most of the animal's names, and where to stand to see them. With a child this age, you get to rediscover everything. Like going to Disney World, all your cares melt away. We are grateful for her in our life.
You know, I don't think I got into the studio at all this week. Though I did decided to organize my thoughts to encourage creativity. I lost my edge a few years ago, and want it back. I'll let you know how it goes.
Has this happened to you? How did you get past it?
Are you satisfied this Saturday?

What a sweet post. So nice that you could spend time with your grand daughter. Kids are so precious at this age of learning so much.

It's been a hot and humid summer here too and I am also ready for a cold front to move through. My husband and I early this morning seeded our new septic field and threw down some straw and I thought I would melt. The humidity was so thick you could cut it with a knife as my father used to say:)

I have lost my edge for creativity before and I have to say that blogging has helped in so many ways. Now I have people to quilt and craft alongside with and it's been fun!

I am spending the rest of my Saturday 'chilling' as my kids say. The morning grass seed workout has exhausted me:(

Hi Sue
thanks for commenting, and enjoying the post.
Tell me what it means to see a new septic field. I have no idea what that means.
That's one of the reasons I started blogging. I wanted to share with others, hoping for inspiration. It's working, especially when someone joins me in this venture.
Thanks for sharing, hope to "see" more of you,
