All is well

No news are good news; we are still the proud grandparents of one little boy with another one expected in March. The mom is out of bed, grandson back home and everything is almost back to normal. The big difference is that we all rather abruptly realized that things might change by the drop of a hat and that uncertainty will be our companion for the foreseeable future. That’s how it goes, isn’t it; love and worries go hand in hand.


I have taken Deborah’s advice and am engaging myself in a little knitting therapy while I am waiting; knitting a preemie blanket and hats just in case. If our little loved one doesn’t need them, which he hopefully won’t, there will always be other babies that do. I’m knitting them the same way I knitted these blankets and hats last winter but with a little extra grandma love in each stitch.

What I have learned from the last two weeks is the following: stop procrastinating. Finish whatever needs to be finished. Now. So that’s what I’ll be doing the next few weeks; finishing my assignments ASAP and not waiting for upcoming deadlines. Like a true girl scout I’ll be prepared so I can deal with whatever comes around without so much stress. Hopefully I will be on top of things soon and can get back into my sewing room; I do miss my creative mess, but in the meantime I’m thankful for my yarn stash and some quiet evenings in front of the telly.


Thank you so much for all your well wishes and prayers; it means so much to me!


Have a wonderful week!

  2. You are right, everything can change in seconds. Glad the expectant mother is doing better for now. Your knitting is beautiful! I purchased the supplies to start knitting and was trying to teach myself last night. Not so good. But, tomorrow is a new day. :)
