30 Days of Joy...............Day 22

My heart was touched with joy today for many reasons.

Weston complained that he thought his uvula was bleeding (it wasn't) and went on to ask me, "What is the purpose of a uvula, anyway?" I thought it was great that he knows what a uvula is. A lot of people don't.

Chunk, who calls both Computer Geek and me "Grandpa," finally learned how to say "Grandma."  He was excited today because he saw our car and started yelling, "Grandma!"  Alas, it was Grandpa this time. Maybe all grandparents should go by the unisex name, "Grandpire," so there's no confusion for two-year-olds.

Someone complimented my friend, Ekanela. I love it when people compliment her because she is way cool.

A whole bunch of green tomatoes that I picked last week during our snowstorm have now turned red. My salivary glands are activated.

And finally, one of my joyous moments is accompanied by a photograph.(You didn't really want photos of Weston's uvula or my salivary glands, did you?)

I was called upon to escort Avatar and Pinque to their horse-riding class. I'm glad that they are learning to ride and groom horses. At least they won't be fauna-phobes like their grandma.

No, that's all right, I don't want to touch it. I'll just stand back over here and take pictures, mkay? Animals sense my fear and will do anything to prove that it's justified.


  1. ahaah.. the uvula actually reminded me of a sweet lil girl who was in my neighbourhood till somedays ago, her uvula was stuck since her childhood and never hung like it normally does.therefore she could not speak properly. she was so pretty and just 5 years. docs will operate her but when i dnt know.

    the horse is soooooooooo cute.

  2. I would love to have sat on a horse at that age. Joy indeed!

  3. Naqvee: Now I know what the purpose of a uvula is! I wondered if it helped with speaking. I'll have to tell Weston.

    Ken: I got to sit on one when I was five, but it was chained to something and just went in a circle. I'm glad the grandkids are learning to ride because horses are ubiquitous in my town. Frequently we have to drive around horses in the road.

  4. What a beautiful horse. I always wanted to go for a ride, but I'm kind of chicken. Great pictures Randi!


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
