OK, so what do you do when you get the call that your darling daughter-in-law has gone into labor?
You boil water, of course! And . . . add noodles. Roast a chicken. Steam some vegetables to go with it. Then bake a cake. That's what!
If you ever wonder what you can do to help a family that has a new baby (and a toddler) in the house, the answer = food. Comfort food. Mostly in the form of nourishing home-cooked freezer meals.
So to this end, the girls and I spent most of the day mixing, cooking, and boxing things up. We still have a few presents to wrap, including these, a knitted baby blanket to finish (Grace’s project), a basket of books and puzzles to keep the new ‘big sister’ occupied and some Mother’s Day goodies to gather together before heading up to the house to meet grandbaby #2 who hasn't actually 'officially' arrived yet. But will. Soon.
These few quiet days of contemplative needle-felting and tea sipping suddenly got very busy and oh, it feels good to be sitting down right now and resting my feet. If only for a few minutes as I wait on the kitchen-timer to call me back.
Alas, my allotted fifteen minutes for blogging is up.
I leave you with some more needle felted fun. I’m awfully proud of the bum on this one. ACK! Think I found a new hobby!
