A Quite week........still waiting..

Well, its been a full week now since I've been up in Portland awaiting the birth of my grandson. I've cleaned, cooked, mended and talked and talked with my daughter and son-in-law. The weather has been great, alot of sun. I've been watching the trees slowly budding into leaves, and getting in daily walks. The foliage up here is so different from Sacramento, all mossy and alot of ferns. I don't know if I've ever seen ferns growing out of a tree before!
I've managed to do a little sewing. I finished covering a cushion on a rocking chair I gave to" C " (my daughter). A project that was about 4 years in the making! Glad that finally got done...I found a little fabric store not far from her house that I can actually drive to without getting lost (yay). I brought a ton of stuff in my suitcase, fabric and such, but it surprising how much you can miss the little things. Like pins! and buttons, and trims, an ironing board.....and my cat, Billee and my select comfort bed!!
So, we wait..trying to stay busy. It's been good. I miss having the kids close by and it will be worse once the baby is born. It will be hard having to go back home again without them.
