It was so great to be off from work this past week, and to get spend lots of time with my first grandchild. Did I tell you i can't take my eyes off her? Although she lost almost (1) lb her first week, she's now an eating machine and gaining about an ounce a day, and the doctor is pleased.
After 35 years without a baby around, and just cats for us and our kids, we have this habit of referring to the pediatrician as "the vet" and the baby's hands as her "paws". I know it sounds ridiculous but when your use to mothering cats, it's actually pretty easy to interchange those (2) words:)
(what a difference 4 weeks makes)
I did get to do a few other things this week as well, like planting (3) purple rhododendrons, (1) bleeding heart, some columbine, a pink hydrangea and lots of potted plants as well.
I also got to go to a library book sale on Friday, but actually on bought (3) books and (2) DVDs.
As for reading, I finished Stephen King's, Gingerbread Girl - a short novella (good) and am currently listening to Cammie McGovern's, Neighborhood Watch. I started, The Land of Decoration by Grace McCleen as well.
I also watched a great movie with Mel Gibson called Edge of Darkness (we actually saw it at the movies some time ago but was worth watching again).
Well back to work tomorrow, but it's really just (3) days of work as we have a picnic on Thursday and then I'm off for (4) days for Memorial Day weekend.
Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. The weather has been awesome here.
