No baby yet!

Well, we are still waiting. Daughter Alipurr is "nesting" and doesn't want to be disturbed at the moment. She said they would call when she got to the hospital. We are being patient and keeping ourselves busy. I carry my phone next to my body so I won't miss THE CALL.

When we were in Berea two weeks ago, Sandy gave us this quilt to give to daughter for new baby boy. It is beautifully hand-stitched and so cleverly made. Daughter and girls loved it and thank Sandy and Jimmy for their thoughtfulness.

Isn't this lovely?
Sandy has good taste and both girls wanted to keep it for themselves.

While I was in and out running errands today, I noticed some flowers in my yard that were blooming. As soon as I got back into the house, I grabbed my camera and started shooting some pictures.

The first lily to bloom

Can you see the Early Girl tomatoes?

Stella D'Oro Daylilies

Pink and white begonias and yellow and orange marigolds
(can you see the beautiful orange butterfly on the marigold?)


White Astilbe

Red Astilbe

Dusty Miller and Moss Rose

White begonias, pink geraniums and moss rose

Finally, I will leave you with this bit of cheese to lighten your day.

A pregnant lady was in an accident and she woke up in the hospital. She noticed she was not pregnant anymore and asked the nurse what happened to her baby.

The nurse said, "You have two healthy babies, a boy and a girl!" The lady said, "Oh, I must name them," but the nurse said, "You were unconscious, so we called your brother, and he named them!"

The lady said, "But he's as dumb as a box of rocks! So what are their names?"

The nurse said, "The girl is called "Denise." The woman replied, "Well that is a pretty name, so what did he name my boy?"

The nurse replied, "Denephew!"

Yes, the quilt is very cute, but your grand-daughters are even cuter! I love Dancer Girl's pretty outfit, and Little Sister's shy smile.

You certainly have lots of lovely flowers blooming.

I liked the joke too! I know some people don't appreciate puns, but good ones like this do tickle my funny bone!

I'm anxiously waiting for some news of contractions too. I'm taking the picture of the girls...they are so cute and I can't have too many pictures of them to look at. hehehe.

Your flowers are looking pretty and all of our tomatoes died and I'm hoping that you planted extra. Call me just as soon as you have some ripe ones. hehehe. I'll need one for my BLT soon. hehehe

I loved that joke and I'm going to send it to my friend. I'm still laughing.

we certainly love the quilt! and yes, you put into words how i am feeling, nesting with a do not disturb sign up (guess that came from not you, but too many people calling and asking about baby being here yet)

so jealous of your flowers, so pretty....my astilbes will have to wait til next year, haven't had the heart to tell husband he mowed them over...maybe they will bloom late :)

that joke is really funny, will have to tell hubby's brother that one,LOL

was good talking to you today

Your flowers are lovely. Like me, you seem to use more pots than planting in the ground.

Cute quilt! I'll keep checking back to see if baby boy is here yet...
