...especially when you are on vacation! I seem to not only be getting older, but correspondingly slower. I have the house all to myself this week, but just don't seem to be getting that much done. Of course, it could partially be because of the frequent breaks I've been taking for morning coffee, checking on the elk, checking email, reading the paper, lunch, knitting break, scanning old family photos into the computer, snack break, phone calls, checking Ravelry, getting distracted by Yard Crashers and/or Paula Deen, dinner, checking email again, looking up and importing recipes into The Recipe Manager, (my recipe program,) checking Ravelry again, running to town for cleaning supplies that I forgot to get when I was there over the weekend, soaking in the hot tub, and watching reruns of Bones. (Oh, and blogging, of course.) Still, I've only gotten about half of my to-do list checked off, and my vacation time is already three quarters over. Well, what's to be done, but soldier on. With frequent mental health breaks, of course. ;-)
A new Sasha baby, that is. It is my 5 year old granddaughter, Ella's, first Sasha. Ella has named her new baby either Rose Amanda, or Amanda Rose, depending on her whim at the moment. Regardless, we have been calling her baby Rose, and not surprisingly, baby's favorite color is, well....rose! Baby Rose was adopted from Dorisanne Osborn. Dorisanne sent some cute little things along with her. The yellow crocheted dress she is wearing is one of those items. I have also contributed a couple of things I had on hand, including a white flannel diaper and a rose print receiving blanket, so at least baby Rose doesn't have to go around in her birthday suit. Undoubtedly, though, a suitable wardrobe must be gotten underway, and as far as Ella is concerned, the sooner the better!
I am off work for two weeks, and although I plan on doing some serious house cleaning, I also hope to find time to make a few additions to Baby Rose's wardrobe. Stay tuned for further updates!
I live in the country on a farm in Central Illinois, with my dear husband, who is a farmer, a cabinet maker, and a truly nice man. I have two daughters, one son, two granddaughters and six grandsons, all of whom I adore.
I have more "stuff" than any one person needs, but I like my stuff and don't plan on giving any of it up any time soon!
