Blush of Pink

I'm skipping in a little late today. I was distracted by sweet baby Macey. :o)Lucky, lucky me got to spend the whole day with her today!! It's been heaven. For me anyway.

Bill and the boys spent the day reworking the sprinklers and hauling in dirt for the new planting beds. Sweet! Now I have to start making some decisions on what plants go where. A project which will undoubtedly be revised and revised and revised and......

A weekend in the life of one chickiedoodle.

On the surface everything looks calm and serene. Like, for instance, this bouquet in a bucket at the Barn House event on Saturday.In reality, though sometimes all you want to do is roll your eyes and say, "Good grief."
Take for instance this picture. A little background is in order. Found a sweet Frenchy Bench in Camas, at the local garden faire. "Will it fit in the car?" I ask Bill. He says, "Oh yeah. It'll fit just fine." We get to the car and guess what? It doesn't fit. Just a couple inches too long to fit in the back seat. Try the trunk. Plenty of room....not enough top clearance. Uh-oh. I have visions of sitting on the bench in the middle of town while Bill drives home (35 mins. each way) to get the truck. Ah, but wait! Where there's a Bill there's a way!! He is unfazed by this predicament. Then I remembered a certain trip to Lake Oswego where we found two 7 ft. pillars and had to bring them home in the trunk of the car.....via the freeway as well. Bill and I are just a couple of modern day Beverly Hillbillies!! Ha!

Then you get to the really, really sweet things. The make your heart soar things. All put together and it's another weekend in the life of this chickiedoodle. I wouldn't have it any other way. Would you? *wink*

Sweet baby is finally here!

Macey and Nana - May 2nd
Little Miss Sweet as Sugar, Macey was born yesterday afternoon in the midst of a spring storm with lightening and thunder, hail and then bright sunny skies! The power in the hospital even went out a few times during her delivery! Mama, Daddy and Macey are all doing just fine. We're all so happy she is finally here!! Now maybe I'll be able to focus on work......or not. ;o)

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
