Good morning. It's rather gray and damp here in my little part of New England. The rain has been steady, buy very light. Today's temps won't be too bad, about 53F degrees. Not a bad day after all.
Yesterday, my doctor called in a prescription for eye drops for me, but I did not have a chance to go pick them up. I'll do that this morning. Plus I have to go to the Town Hall to sign my tax papers. Thank goodness a nice lady calls me to remind me because I always forget.
Well, I do have some information on our new little baby. Her name is Alima and she weighed in at 4 pounds, 12 ounces and is 17 3/4 inches long. Deanne spent her whole visit at the hospital cuddling little Ali. Here's a photo of Deanne holding our newest cutie pie.
Deanne said to me "Oh Mom, she's soooo tiny!" I had to remind her that she too was a teeny tiny baby. She weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces when I brought her home from the hospital. So I dug out an old Polaroid of Deanne in her carriage, with her big sister Kerri peeking in at her.
DIL Janet came by last evening with an armful of goodies. She brought me a birthday cake, and a whole box of cupcakes in case I did not like the cake. Plus she gave me a gift card to JoAnn's Fabric Store. Oh my, you can be sure I'll have lots of fun with that gift card! She even gave me three birthday cards. She could not decided which one to buy, so she got them all. (She spoils me, but I love it!)
I've been trying, not too successfully, to fight off a cold these past couple of weeks. If I could just get rid of the cold, my eye would probably clear right up. Ah well, if I can get all of the "sicky" stuff out of the way, maybe I can stay healthy all of next year. This year hasn't been so healthy for me. I really don't want to miss out on next Spring.
Well, that's about all my news. Now it's time to get ready to go do some errands. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
