|Sunrise in Ankeny|
I wrote a blog entry yesterday but I was having too much fun playing with the grandkids over in Tiffin to take the time to post it. I will attach it to the end of this post later today. (done)
We left Tiffin last night around 6 o'clock and arrived back in Grimes about 7:30 so we made really good time, in spite of the fog and snow.
It started raining shortly after we arrive home last night and some time in the night, it turned over to snow. We had probably three quarters of an inch of snow on the roads this morning. The drive on the interstate on the way to Ankeny was alright, even though we saw several instances of cars that have gone off the road. Second avenue appears not to even have been plowed. So it was real slow going from the interstate on into Ankeny today.
Cierra dropped the girls off at Nate and Beth's about 7:15 this morning. They had both eaten breakfast at McDonald's and Charlotte had already taken her medicine. Lorelia ate another bowl of cereal long with grandma and grandpa. And then I drove Charlotte to school.
When I return, Lorelai and Grandma were both on their electronic media. Lorelai is watching a movie on the iPad and Grandma is listening to something, probably a TV show, on her Droid. And I am sitting here speaking into my Droid and letting it type on my blog. It works fairly well that way, however I have to go back and add punctuation and capitalization as well as correct some silly things that it does when it does not understand what I said.
Aunt Audrie returned home just in time to take Lorelia to preschool. So we packed up our laundry and headed toward home.
We stopped on the way for lunch at a little 'hole-in-the-wall" Greek resturant in Grimes. I had the buffet (three choices plus lettuce) and Ella had a fish sandwich with onion fries. Food was fresh and good (not great). Ella said that her golden cod (code for deep fat fried frozen fillet) was too salty. I would like to go back for dinner when the true Greek Food is served.
I said that I'd post yesterday's blog entry ... so here it is.
