New Life!

A new member of the family. So tiny. So precious. Such a blessing. Thanks to all who have sent their regards and best wishes for this new little life. Her name is Ella – and she is perfect! ( And I now have enough grandkids for a basketball team.) 

In the meantime, her big sister and I have been having a great time ignoring the rules. I do believe I read that in the grandparent handbook. I’m remembering that old adage, sleep when they sleep. Absolutely – except when you have a blog to write. So here I am, sitting at the computer instead of going to bed.

Two days of rain. That is a nice blessing. Fortunately, I mowed the lawn – in anticipation of the baby, not the rain – so the timing was perfect. My iris are blooming and are gorgeous this year. The pots I planted a few weeks ago are looking good and beginning to fill out. I suppose weeds are going to come on like gangbusters after this rain, but oh well.

So, that is all for now. Maybe in a week or two I’ll be in the groove again. In the meantime, enjoy the joy of spring and new lifedsc_0785. Summer is right around the corner.
