Wet and Wild Wednesday

We have had a wild day weather wise today. Buckets of rain and a hard wind. Winter's last gasp, I suppose, just to make sure we know that spring officially is still 2 weeks away. Amazingly, the flowering plums held onto most of their lovely pink blossoms, so the storm didn't totally chase away spring! I mentioned in my last entry that I would post a picture of my yard after the fine landscapers had finished their work. It looks bare with no leaves on anything, but oh so neat and pretty.



I came home for lunch today, and Alli was giving Alana a bath in the sink. The look on her face as she was lowered into the water was hilarious! I wish my camera had been turned on. A mixture of pure disbelief and "what are you doing". So I grabbed my camera and took a few pix. She even got her hair blow dried when she was done!


So this evening I get to stitch. Von has actually gotten ahead of me in the Shepherd's Bush stitch along we are doing, but I hope to get caught up tonight. Wishful thinking? Probably!!!

Isn't it funny how she likes her hair to get blow dried? Yard looks great mom. I finally got that pic of Alana on my blog, but it won't let me add a second one now. Don't worry too much about the orny mom- you've still got quite a bit of time until the end of the month. If you do one a month, you can have twelve done by Christmas.

You'll be ahead of me in no time, Con!! Today is my day to stitch on the Spot of Summer SAL, and I grabbed my P to work on during the congregational meeting. If I have any time at all, I'll be stitching on Spot until the weekend.
Love seeing the pics of Alana!! What a lucky gramma to come home and see dgd!
I have forgotten to tell you that my friend Joyce is a gramma now! They just got back from their first trip to see the baby - Asa Paul. Daughter Zoae and her dh live in Bellingham now.
What a wild day you've all had over there!

What sweet pictures of your daughter and granddaughter. Alana looks like such an incredibly alert baby!
