About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

My new grandson is finally arrived at 7 lbs 11 oz, two weeks early.
He arrived early this morning at 1:44AM.
I was just talking to my daughter shortly before her water broke . We had ended our conversation and she said that she had gone to the bathroom shortly before I called and needed to go again.

About 15 minutes later she called to tell me that her water broke and that she had called the hospital and they told her to come in. A short labor and soon she had the little bundle with her.   My prayers have been answered. I can't wait to hold him tomorrow or at least see him.
Thanks for all your prayers and caring. Hugs  to all.     Julia

  19. Hello Julia,
    I just wanted to take a moment to say hello and tell you how much I've enjoyed reading your lovely blog. :) I "stumbled in" this evening (from Cathy G's blog-I think) and had to tear myself away...rug hooking, wool dying, baking, gardening,and of course the family stories...all so interesting and informative!
    I've added your blog to the sidebar on my own, so I can return again & again. Thanks for sharing with us!
    And let me add my congratulations on the arrival of your newest grandson!

Before I go pack my bags to go meetr my grandson, I want to welcome my new follower Rhonda. So glad to have you join my blog. I hope that you will find some entertaining moments in the old posts as well. HUGS everyone JB
