Ahhh Sunshine and Warmth! ... and Surprise!

Today we came home from the Land of Oz to a great treat. Some of the kids and grandkids were here swimming! Oh that was so nice!

It was finally warm enough and the sun shining and there were no workers around so we could enjoy the pool and sunshine. It renewed my excitement about being out here. It has been a long cold, wet time since we were able to enjoy the pool.

They say that we have broken records for rain. The last record was 13 days in a row with rain. We went 20 rainy days in a row! Yeah... it was getting to me and I was wondering where the Ark was because I wanted to make sure I was on it!

PLUS... yesterday our youngest daughter called and we were talking rather nonchalantly when I asked (for some strange reason), "so, how's the family?"

Her answer was, "it's GROWING!"...

YEP.. grandbaby # 7 coming the end of the year!!!!

I got off the phone and rushed to Walmart to get some yarn to make a white baby blanket to give her today. I had a blue one and a pink one... but had to have a white one. I finished it and presented it to her this afternoon when she was here. Yeah... God is good!
