I just looked and the last time I posted was on Friday. Where do the days go? On Saturday, Jenna and Antonio spent all day at a birthing class. Diana and I hung around here most of the day. I put up the new light switch in the baby's room. It is so cute with all the jungle animals on it. I also was working on my rag quilt and I finished sewing that yesterday. So now all it needs is to be clipped. Diana and I went to Michaels and looked around there for awhile. I found the picket fence punch that I have been looking for, and used a 40% off coupon on it. So I am happy about that. We also went to the library and Diana checked out 3 more books in the series she is reading. I found a Scrapbooking Baby book for Jenna which she has been enjoying and I also found a book that I had seen at Barnes and Nobles one day, so I checked that one out too. It is called How to Sew a Button, And other nifty things your grandmother knew by Erin Bried. If you have kids just starting out on their own, or need a shower gift for someone, this would make a great gift. I read it on Saturday night and now Jenna is reading it and she thinks it is a great book too and would make a good gift. Saturday night had me a little blue, and homesick for home, but I am okay again. I have not been gone this long from Mayberry for 30 years, so this is a big change for me, but I am enjoying my time here, and will probably be very sad to leave when it is time to go home. And I am sure I will not want to leave the baby! I will definitely be back here in October, as my friend Colleen from Oregon will be flying in on October 5th and will fly out again on October 20th. So I will get lots of baby time in October as I will probably come early and stay a few days and stay again when I take her back to the airport. That's the plan at this point anyways.
Jenna just blew a fuse and the refrigerator is out so I am headed uptown to find some fuses. I will write more later! Love, Elaine
