An intense day

Ten a.m.: a baby shower. A cabled-brim hat of superwash, soft Malabrigo Rios that looked absolutely adorable on the little newborn, who had arrived before the originally scheduled shower. I’ve always said the best way to get a baby to come is to commit to doing something else. Hey.

Had a lovely time, dashed, came home to a message that Kathy had called and ran right back out the door to Stanford hospital, where our friend Kelli (scroll halfway down) was recovering from surgery. Never rear-end someone on a bike.

The three of us laughed, we told stories, I stayed four hours till I really did have to go: we had shopping to do before Costco closed and we had to un-claim Sam’s old room. (She had yarn in her old dresser? Who knew?)

Our nephew Ryan is arriving Monday for the summer.  His room is ready. Our Michelle will arrive ten days later. It will be good to have young’uns around again.

Sounds quite lovely, minus the accident behind the patient’s surgery. Enjoy your day of rest.

And it truly was lovely to see you too! Thank you for taking so much time to be with Kelli. I’m glad you were able to get everything in time for Ryan; hope you weren’t too stressed over it!

“I’ve always said the best way to get a baby to come is to commit to doing something else.” That works in other circumstances, too.

There was yarn? And you didn’t know?! Bonus! (psst–post pics.)

Enjoy the company!

Is there a problem with yarn in the dresser? My son came home to find fabric in his top drawer…do you mean to say I have to remeove it?
