How have I been occupying myself the last couple of weeks? Not by writing blog posts. No, I have been waiting. We slipped away for a week to our usual holiday spot, but the rest of the time I was waiting. Brooding. Sitting in my empty nest and waiting on the arrival of our newest BFF — our grandson. This long weekend I watched a Dr. Who-athon on Netflix and knit a little blue sweater as my daughter patiently waited for her son to be born.
And now he is here!
He arrived on September 1, and is a bonny lad. We are all madly in love with him, especially his sister. How like her he is!
The best thing about this wonderful experience is that we now live right next door to these wonderful people, and can visit them whenever we want! There are not many grandparents who have that chance, and I realize how lucky we are.
Soon I will be back to the regular content of the blog, but for now I will be gazing into that beautiful face. Darling Douglas.
