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.

Here is little James having a bath. He's not particularly enjoying his bath time yet. But mom and dad has made it a joint venture.                                                                                                                                                                                                      I'll be here for another couple of weeks to help until mom feels up to par, in the mean time, I'm enjoying the slower pace and will return to my regular busy schedule once I get back home. I want to welcome all thenew followers who have joned my blog.   I hope that you will find something of interest.  Have a safe and wonderful weekend everyone.  JB



  1. Sweet! I'll bet your cows are missing you! Enjoy your time with the baby.

  2. I'm so glad you are able to stay around for awhile and help them out. He is adorable.

  3. I hope it is a nice break for you. I hope you are resting along with Mom. You are such a good Mom and Grandma. The baby is coming right along isn't he? He is just beautiful. I always enjoy your updates. Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments. When you get back home. I have so many things to ask you about hooking. :)I miss you.

  4. Hi Julia,
    It's so good to hear from you!
    Aaaaw, he's so cute! It's wonderful that Mom and Dad both are involved in the bathing and baby care. Good bonding time.
    I'm glad you are there and able to help them until your daughter recovers. And having that dear baby to hold and snuggle makes it even better.
    Enjoy your time with them!

  5. What a little bundle of joy! You enjoy that time Julia! They grow up so fast before you know it they are not little babies anymore! Savor every moment! Congrats again to you and your beautiful family!

  6. So sweet! Enjoy your time with your daughter and her family. If he is anything like my son, in later years he will love bath time so much that you will be prying his wrinkly body out of the tub to make him go to bed. :)

  7. How much fun! What a sweet little bundle of joy!
    Don't work too hard, Hugs Cheri

  8. Julia,
    He is just the sweetest thing! I love the little baby belly! (On him, mind you...not me!) Enjoy your time with grandbaby!

  9. Julia is is so wonderful that you can stay awhile. Enjoy while you can. We all miss your postings but know that you will catch up once you are home.

  10. Enjoy your time with Sweet James and your daughter. I love to hear of a husband taking an active part in child care. To me that is what makes a man a man. So happy for all of you.

  11. Such a sweet time...even the ordinary things like a bath are just somehow special!! How wonderful that you can be included in all these firsts in his life! You'll have a special place in your heart for all these precious memories!!!

  12. Hi everyone and thanks for all your sweet comments. James had his first visit from the public nurse this afternoon and James has gained 23 oz. since he was disgharged from the hospital the first time. He's growing so fast. He's right awake now and is listening to lively music while he's resting on his mom. I read all the blog post that I can but sometimes I get interrupted and then can't catch up. I haven't abandonned anyone yet. Just bear with me. Love, Julia

  13. Julia....what a wonderful time for you. Enjoy every second and don't worry about keeping up on posts! We will all be here when you get back!

  14. I envey this time you are getting with your daughter and grandson. There is nothing better than being all snuggled with a baby. My time is getting cut short as we have had so much snow on the one day of the week I set aside to drive up to be with them. How wonderful your daughter must feel having her mom close and one on one with her. Thanks for keeping us up to date. The little prince is the sweetest.

  15. Julia, Congratulations on your new grandson. He is adorable. Enjoy your time with your family!

    Have a great day.


  16. First off.... that baby picture is just too precious! Those little feet!!! And, Julia, you are no sour puss. It's been a very tough winter on everyone. The snow here is still piled everywhere and dirty. What's melting is turning all the pavement into swamps, and it's still very cold. Hopefully, this will all fade into the past as the first crocus start to push up their little heads.

  17. Happiness is.....a newborn in a warm bath.....so precious!!! Enjoy!
