"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder
June 30th. We know all about due dates, yet we still couldn't help but be excited when the day came... then went. We looked forward to the fourth of July. It came... it went. The girls and I have been here for a week now and although it's been nice spending this time with Hillary and Monte, we thought (hoped) that we would be spending it with Hillary, Monte and Charlotte.
There is a story in here about being induced (obviously she wasn't, hurray!) but I won't tell that one today. Nope. This baby will come in it's time as babies do.
While we are waiting I'm enjoying the knitting. We took a field trip to a cute little historical district yesterday and it just happened to have a cute little yarn shop. Hillary picked a beautiful hand painted superwash for the EZ Baby Surprise Jacket that I cast on this morning. I chose a yummy, soft, merino~angora blend (Hill picked the color) for the Peurperium that is now half finished. The Plain Vest was started and finished a few days after we arrived.
I'm really not reading anything since I have all of this wonderful company and my absorbing projects. :)
So, since you've decided to bless me with a visit today, once again I ask for your prayers for a safe delivery and if you don't mind... add a rush order? Grandma has to go home Sunday!
