Well...

Thursday, October 03, 2019

I figured out the problem of Frank's birthday present. He has traumatic cerebral palsy, so in his name I made a contribution to United Cerebral Palsy of Northern California. He's very loving and caring, so I know he'll approve.



Meantime, my niece Manda posted a new picture today of my great-niece Angie. She just started middle school, but she looks so grown-up! Great-auntie bragging time: she's an honor student, a soccer star and a talented musician. She also has a razor-sharp sense of humor and seems to have inherited the smart-(aleck) gene from both parents. She's growing up WAY too fast.



Also, my friend Lauren just had a gorgeous baby girl named Lilly. I knitted a blanket for her, and Lauren just posted a picture. A member of one of the knitting groups I belong to on Facebook said, "She's a perfect pink Lilly in her green Lilly pad." I love that!



My roommate transferred out yesterday and the bed hasn't been reassigned yet, so I slept like a rock last night. I just took some Ativan (anti-anxiety), so hopefully I can relax enough to get some knitting done.

    You had a mother's know-how to handle the birthday present idea. Congrats on your decision. It's always so nice when we can share pictures of little ones who are so full of love. Some days you think things can't get any better than that and it would be true.

    Enjoy your peace and quiet and I hope and pray that your next roommate will just be quiet like yourself.

    Have a blessed day! Cheers!!

    Lauren is very grown-up! Lilly is a cutie(my youngest granddaughter is also named Lilly)! Nice gift for your son! Hope you got some knitting finished since your room-mate has been moved.
