Bunnies, babies and brightness.....

Margaret is now the Granny of a beautiful grandson, born this morning! I can't wait to hear the details, but she is teaching as I speak. Sigh. How inconvenient. The present is wrapped, of course, and waiting for her to toss in her car as she and her husband zap off across country to gather up the little scrap in the arms and celebrate becoming grandparents for the very first time. She is about to fall head over heels in love, isn't she, my friends!

Sigh. Grandbabies. Bless them all.

I have been putting together another quilt for the Princess here, and it is ready to be hand quilted now, so I can do that in the evenings at Bath. My friends, Peter and Glynis are taking me down to the hospital on Sunday. It is about 2 hours away. Or 2.5. I can't remember. And we will be going in the morning, so we can do some exploring and have lunch out somewhere before I go in. I can arrive any time between 12 and 6pm, so that works well.

Today has been a quiet, do nothing day for me, like most Fridays from recent weeks. My fingers are itching to start on the quilting, but then I will run out of things to do when I am there, so I am refraining.

I have spent some time trying to fill in forms here, but then I thought that a) they are endless, and b) they seem pointless, and c) I can't find the other things I need for them until I get back so there is no point worrying for now. It can all wait. My head hurts when I start thinking about it all, I have to say.

When I get back, I will decorate the house for spring, get the Easter tree up and (Margaret has just popped in with the CUTEST photo of the brand new little boy!) where was I.... the Easter bunnies and eggs and green thows for the couches, and change the cushion covers.... It will be spring at last! And my seedlings will need sorting and the garden... so much brightness to look forward to. In fact, I may even start decorating now. Why not. I could do with some brighness.

And yes, my friends, I will be posting till I leave.

Bunnies, babies, brightness.

It is all good.

Ah yes, she certainly is about to experience something wonderful. Congratualations Margaret.

I haven't had the time to go back thru your posts to read the reason you are going to Bath. Is it for surgery or rehabilitation or neither. I would love it if you could direct to me where you posted about it.

My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you go.

First things first...hearty congrats to Margaret on the birth of her grandson. Indeed, she will soon find that he holds her heart.

As for you...you are so busy even in the middle of stressful times. I should take a clue. Sometimes I just sit staring. Sit. Staring. Very productive...not.

These forms...are they anything that you might get help with in Bath? I hate forms. Hate'em.

Oh, I wanted to thank you for sending me along to Bella's yesterday. What a cutie pie and so bright and intelligent. I loved reading her blog.

So, until next time, Linds, keep your mitts off the quilt...just start another. ;)

Ah, Spring is in the air. Good to see you looking forward to all those fun things.

Needled Mom said...

Yes, she will instantly be madly in love. Congratulations to her.

Spring is definitely in the air. It sounds as though you are loaded with ideas for when you get home.

A new baby! Her life will be forever changed in the most wonderful way.
Your spring projects sound quite inviting :)

Easter tree? I'm off investigating now.

Edith said...

Congratulations to Margaret on the new grandbaby. And the quilt sounds lovely. Do you cross stitch?

Are you going to have any internet access while you are gone?

Have a blessed weekend.

Just stopping by to say hi and wish you a wonderful weekend :)

Another grandma - how wonderful!

And you sound like you're really getting mentally prepared to be back home - and spring should definitely be there by then.

I'm heading out to Kansas City, Missouri (to really stay across the border in Kansas) for the week-end with my sister. I have posted the latest shots of - you guessed it - the grands!

My post before that made the most sense to people our age bracket - wondering if you know of what I wrote over there in the UK. Or in SA. Let me know.

Hi Linds,

First off I want to welcome Margaret to the most wonderful club on earth, Grandparents R Us. Her heart is surely melting right now. I am glad to hear "Spring" in your words and I have never heard of an Easter tree. I am praying for your stay at Bath to be absolutely successful and full of hope for you. Take care and prayers will continue for you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
