I snapped this photo in October, on Canadian Thanksgiving Sunday, a wonderful, amazing weekend. Pictured above, leading the way, (mostly hidden) are our son (DS) and daughter-in-law, parents of the Little Miss, and behind them, our eldest daughter and son-in-law (DD1).
The preceding Friday afternoon I awaited, with hope in my heart, a Skype call from DD1. At first she looked so serious that I thought, "oh no." But then, her husband, standing behind her, put up two thumbs with a huge grin. YES! Another grandbaby is on the way. Great rejoicing ensued and thanks to God.
Just a month ago, I was invited, along with Gerry's mom, to the gender assessment ultrasound. I bought two little onesies and wrapped them up. But I only came home with one of them - the blue one. Yes, we're having a second darling granddaughter - a girl cousin for the Little Miss. We have about 3 months more to wait - such exciting days.
I've been teaching this week - Christian Perspectives and Home Economics. Being with teenagers is paradoxically both invigorating and tiring. I come home from school tired and happy.
Today I'm playing with the Little Miss. She's napping just now, and there's a chicken carcass simmering on the stove, filling the air with savoury goodness. Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are on the list of things to make today, and some tidying up. Hopefully the rain will desist long enough for a walk this afternoon.
What's happening in your world today? I always love to hear.
