Good Morning

It's Wednesday?
Good morning everyone, I just wanted to make this a short one to say, yes I am still here. I am enjoying our weather with below normal temps, rain in the forecast (yea!) nothing really new on the home front. The deer keep coming to eat, the hummingbirds are drinking a quart of juice a day, and I have survived two days with the baby. Yep, pretty good so far. I do want to explain a couple things, this baby is no relation to me even though I would claim her as my new grand baby easily. She is very sweet, very tiny, very special. Her parents are adopting her while in their 40's and are so appreciative of this gift from God. Their little blessing is his first baby and her second. Big sister is 24 and is so in love with her new little sister. These are people I have met since moving here a year ago. The mom said she did not leave her first daughter with a day care and now that she is securely in her job as a school administrator assistant she is having to leave this little one in the care of another. I offered to watch her since I am not working, we live close to each other, and I could certainly use a little extra money in these times of retirement. So we are giving it a try as we both adjust to a new way of life. Yes it has only been two days. But this little sweetie is just sweet. Sometimes she is fussy, I don't always know what to do, I am learning what her little cries mean. I have to learn her language. I don't have a very good schedule yet, but she is only 7 weeks old, and 9 lbs. So why do we have to be on a schedule just yet. We will get there. The dogs are doing great with her, it allows me to be at home to still do what I need to do, and the best thing?? I get to help someone have peace of mind. I never had to leave my kids with day care either. I had enough family around to help take care of my kids or very close friends or due to our shift work both my husband and I were able to take care of the kids. We were very blessed. So I feel it is an honor to be able to help another person who has a very big heart, with the issue of leaving her new precious gift with a stranger. And the rocking chair picture??? Well I just grabbed that from the net, it is not really in my home. However, I really do like it and wouldn't mind rocking with that one! Think I could find it on Ebay? Oh well, my Lazy Boy will have to do for now!

I'm still jealous! Sounds like you're doing okay so far. This family is so blessed to have such a kind caring person as you are to leave their precious little treasure with. Enjoy!!!

It's always so nice to have a trusted friend when in need. She's lucky that you are that friend.
Have a most excellent day!
