I’m Too Excited to Cook Today!






I’m too excited to be cooking today, which is a rarity for me!

We had quite an amazing, surprising weekend ~ to say the least!  We had a garage sale over the weekend, the first one in many years and the last one!  And we also celebrated Bill’s birthday, which was Saturday.  Thankfully, he is once again my age.

To top all of that, our son, Matt, and his wife, Kathy, arrived carrying a basket.  Matt said he would like to put the items in the sale but wanted us to look at it all first and voice our opinions.  I thought that was a little strange; then he insisted his Dad and I look at it together.

I removed the paper and saw a bib on top that read, “I love Grandpa.”  Now I thought it was REALLY strange and wondered if they were now in the business of selling bibs.    I’m a little slow!  I lifted the bib and underneath laid a framed photo of a ultrasound.  I screamed and yelled over to the next county!  I got it!


I’m going to be a grandmother for the first time!





It was a birthday Bill will never forget and one of the best days of my life!

All we have to do is wait now and in the meantime I will be doing some shopping for baby “goodies” as I have been waiting for this for years!

Congratulations to you both, Kathy and Matt!  We are proud and ecstatic beyond words.
