We seem to have a few things in common.

I am basking in the joy of a new grandchild.

Erica Rose was born a few hours ago. She's welcomed by her mom and dad and 5 brothers. Ah, the testosterone wave has been broken!

She was 10 lb., 2 oz., 21 inches long and everyone is doing splendidly!!!!

I knew all along the baby was going to be a girl and squirreled away all sorts of "girlie" things. Mom and dad didn't want to know until the arrival day so they got their surprise.

I can't imagine how intimidating little Erica's boyfriends will be when they want to take her out. Five brothers to check him out....whew! One thing's for sure, she'll be a tough little cookie.

Does anyone have ten cents worth energy they can spare? I am off to a slow start this morning. I think a second cup of coffee might do it. We have some serious rain coming our way and I am very achey today. Not just my joints, but my muscles also.

I want to vacuum the back room. I have my clean tissues all over the floor. Those are the ones I just love to wash because I don't bother to check the pockets before they go into the wash. Then when I shake out the wet laundry, SNOW TIME! When will I learn? I should buy clothes that have no pockets.

When the kids were small, I would go through the house picking up small items and putting them in my pockets. Do you have any idea how many time I would leave the house with an odd sock, small toys, loose change and other strange items in my pockets? My intention was to put them where they belonged. But they never made it in a timely manner and before I left the house.

Last night I wanted to make some cookie dough and prepare it for the freezer. It never happened. I fell asleep at the computer. I woke up when my head hit the keyboard.

I just talked to my daughter. She started her chemo medicine this week. She took the first pill Monday night. She took it too early in the evening and felt lousy all day yesterday. So last night she took it just before her head hit the pillow. Today she feels much better. She takes it for five days each month. Talking to her gave me enough energy to get out into the kitchen and make those Michael Symonns chocolate cookies. I have all the ingredients on hand. Even the really dark chocolate chips.

So now you know what I am doing. What about you?

Congratulations, Katie! Erica Rose is a beautiful name. And at that birth weight she will be able to hold her own with all those brothers!

I will send you a picture of wool colours!
