More Drama but....

Last week was quite the week. Our littlest granddaughter, Lydia, is here and she's so cute. And she's rolled over already. She tried to do it the day after she was born! Oh goodness. These photos are when she was in the hospital, hours old....
...heading home with her mom and dad late Wednesday afternoon......
and photographed in mom's lap, by aunt Megan who came with grandma to bring her sister and brother back home. She yawned and did a little cry and stretched....oh kay...I'll quit!! Lydia was the bright spot of our week.    After we left, we headed to Grocery Outlet to get some bread, as it was running low, just as the milk did with two more people eating in the house. Grandpa made  breakfast for the kids and lunches. It was good to finally get home with our purchases and sit down. It'd been a long day for me. But it's all good! Phil had cared for the grands all day and was tired from not sleeping but an hour the night before. Melody was sick in the night so he was in living room with them all night. I was not going to allow him to drive them home.at.all. Not safe. We're here for each other.
Megan and I have been working on getting all the graduation party invitations addressed and sent. We handed out quite a few as well.  We've now got our desserts figured out. There's a  forensics theme going on. Butterfly pretzels and gummy worms for entomology, M&Ms for DNA sequencing, whoppie pies for police sirens to name a few.   

That's one of the fun times right now. Her car is out of commission. Repairs on it are too much and now we're working out our schedule for use of my car between the two of us. At least we both work in town. It's workable and hopefully for not too long. May be able to use or buy her brother's extra car. God has got this in His hands and we are waiting to see how it all works out. 

Lovely rhody and rose in the evening light. I'm enjoying them so much right now. The rhodies are full on the bush right now.

New pan and tea kettle last week. little did I realize they were both red til I came home Thurs evening with the tea kettle. I replaced the nice........
rip city rip city rip city....
{Sorry it's  near the end of the Blazer/Warrior game.}
{Megan thinks I'm crazy to blog and watch game 4. It's called multi tasking. :-p }

.....anyway, I replaced the nice off white sunflower tea kettle with the red one. Got some rust in it and it needed replaced. I'm tired of the new pans out there. I don't like the non stick coating and the ceramic coating is better but mine didn't last but a two to three years. Cast iron is out of the question since it's too heavy for me.  Then Megan photo bombed with her Coke can!!!
Friday evening I felt the need to light some candles.  It was the end of a long week. It was the day of my father in law's memorial service day. We weren't able to go cross country for it. We were tired and in the afternoon,  Megan's car got towed to get fixed. If it wasn't one thing, it was something else that week. We've lived through it and staying strong this week.

You and your family have a lot on your plate right now. But at least the bad things are balanced with the good. What a sweet new granddaughter you have.
