I am not moving very fast. Goodness! Like a three-legged turtle! It is already afternoon.
We had a faint rainbow in the clouds a couple days ago.
Can you see it?
Yesterday was the first day I even managed to take pen in hand to work on the several letters I owe. I have only been doing what I absolutely had to--like visit the new family and laundry and make food and cuddle Karma. ;)
Black coffee in the thermal mug for T Stands For Tuesday today over at Elizabeth's. I didn't make it last week due to Ian's long slow entrance into our lives last week. (I posted about it last Wednesday.) Karma and I are exhausted--LOL! Well, Karma is always exhausted. But let's just say that Gramma Rita pushed herself a bit too far and is taking it easy at home this week...possibly all week if I can stand to be away that long--LOL! ;)
In all the excitement I kind of forgot that there is a very good reason I have been housebound for nine years--LOL! Suddenly being out and about (even if it was just over to the hospital once and Dagan and Leah's several times) maybe three days a week was quite a shift and really caught up with me this week. Yup! This was why I was hoping to be a grandma in better physical health. Oh well. Maybe after I have some time to recoup from those three days with 7 hours of sleep things will go more smoothly. Pretty sad when you are in worse shape than the mother who was in labor for 68 hours and 52 minutes--ROFL! ;) Pathetic, right!?
I was last over on Saturday. Dagan, Leah, and Ian are all doing fine. They were all tired, too.
Dagan is also taking this week off from work, too, so he is there to help Leah as she recovers. I am so proud of the new Mama and Daddy that I could just bust! And Ian...can hardly wait to get to know him better and watch him experience the wonders of living and learning.
But for right now, I have been sleeping a lot and am a total (aching) noodle...too tired to even read yet...or write till yesterday. (So worth it, though!!) Just trying to get back to my normal functioning...which is gradually returning. :) So very, very happy that I can't really describe it well. It's like this new energy settled into my being and shifted my core.
Tuesdays child is full of grace.
(Better than mine with the Wednesday full of woe thing--LOL!)
Meanwhile, July has arrived. I am balancing my checkbook and tweaking my orders for this month. It was running about 80 degrees for quite a while and suddenly it is 60 today! Damp. Chilly even. But then we go into the 70s for a few days--ahhh! I wish it would quit raining, though. The ground never has a chance to dry out.
Anyways, have a wondrous, magical week.
Life is soooo good!! :):)
