Yesterday my mom, my best Audrey, and I traveled up to Denver to attend Jessica's baby shower. All my daughters were there for the afternoon and Jessica was beautiful in all her "babyness". The new baby's room is all ready and is simply adorable. We're all waiting for the Birthday next month.
It was a lovely day for us all I think. And good to see my daughters being such friends to each other now that they're older. Here is the women in my family. From the back right going clockwise - Tracy, me, Mom, Emily, Madeline, and Jessica. The 4th generation is in Jessica's big belly.
I finished a few little tems of baby wear and stitched them by hand with sheep (of course). I like to think that Baby Girl will just know they were stitched with thoughts of my love for her.
Today the promise of snow didn't materialize - just a few flurries - and we need the moisture. I am sorry to say that I finally succumbed to a cold and I'm really sorry that I brought it up to Denver with me yesterday. Today I've just been lying around - took some Robitussin cough syrup that is for night time and slept until 2 o'clock this afternoon(!) And have spent some time looking up things on the Internet with one eye on old movies from the Turner Classic Movie channel - "The Quiet One", then "Roman Holiday". Audrey Hepburn and Maureen O'Hara have the most beautifully tailored clothing on these old flicks. I enjoy them for just the chance to see the well made garments, I think. I've just had some tea and am feeling better but there is that "drip, drip, drip" in the back of my throat that is annoying.
Jerry made some venison chili and it's a perfect night for it. I still have two days off which is really a Sunday night treat.
We've been reading and watching about the deadly wildfires in southern Australia and the flooding in Queensland. My heart goes out to all of you. Please let me know how you're all doing.
