  1. These photos are tempting. Due to the passing last Friday of my beloved kitty, Miss Dixie Rose, my life had changed considerably. I’m still a little stunned and grieving, but, on the other hand… there will be some aspects of her absence that will be good. For one thing, hurricane evacs will be simpler. For another? No need to pay a kitty sitter when I’m gone, and less worry when I am away from home. I may actually make it over that way this year.

    Now… I’m awaiting the rest of this!

    • I’m so very sorry to hear about your Miss Dixie Rose. I understand looking on the positive side in order to disburse the grief. Also, I’m sorry I haven’t been keeping up. Just so many hours in the day, and by suppertime, I’m ready to skip straight to bed time. I really hope you can make it down this year. That would be grand!

    • Ha ha ha! That really made me laugh. Hey, if you read the updated post, the cake shocked me, too, even though I knew why we were at this “reveal” party!!! I’ve added photos, too, so I hope you get the chance to come back and have a looksee!

    • Yep, well, well! My little boy MUST grow up all the way now! He’s going to be a daddy. I still can’t wrap my head around it!

    • Yes, and I’m learning now that grandchildren are blessings of a different sort, although a good kind! Bibby has slowly wormed her way into my new grandmother’s heart, and I’m loving the time I spend with her every week.

  2. Congratulations Wendy! Those little ones are special and grandparents are supposed to spoil them rotten. (That’s what the grandkids tell me). 🙂
    And at the end of this month, we will have all sorts of time to do just that. Hubby was forced into retirement which he has been saying he was going to do for 2 years. It’s a sure thing now though. We started off by taking 2 of the grands to the park today to enjoy the beautiful weather. I too have chapped checks and lips from the wind.

    I have a new bird nesting on our porch columns that I’ve never seen before. I’ve tried to get a photo but, no luck yet. It is grey, small and has a red top of the head and a red bib. It is beautiful but very skittish.

    • Without looking it up, I wonder if it’s a Carolina Wren? They like to make their nests in things around the house/porch, like empty flower pots, baskets, etc. Look it up and see if it fits. They have a very pretty, but LOUD call! Grandmotherhood is growing on me, Cam. When I first started babysitting, it was with a little ambivalence since I have not held an infant since Termite, which was 22 years ago! Hard to imagine. My, my how time flies! Thanks for still being here after all this time, and I hope you and hubby get to enjoy many years of retirement together!

  3. I don’t know if I’m more excited that there will be another little girl in the family, or that I finally guessed a baby‘s gender correctly!
