|My Wave sweater has an arm.|
I have a sleeve.
|Hayden Kristina, two days old|
And a granddaughter. Meet Hayden Kristina. She is perfect!
She has my hair and sadly, my giant feet. She also has the Owen nose but thankfully, not the Owen ears. She has tiny, little delicate, adorable ears.
Mom and Dad seem pretty pleased with her. Hayden is "chill" and they think they'll keep her. As long as she can keep a hand up to her face, she doesn't fuss at all.
Even Aunt Sarah is taken with her. And of course, I'm over the moon with her.
Her birth about killed me though. The hospital was on lock-down due to the corona virus and we weren't allowed to visit. We had to wait until she got home before we could meet her in person. Y'all can imagine how well that went over with me.
To deal with the stress/excitement of waiting for her birth and trip home, I knit and read. Over the last sixteen days, I've knit the body, a rather large body I might add, and one sleeve on my Wave sweater plus started and finished five books on my Kindle. I've been a bit obsessed.
If you're in need of something to keep your mind off the fact that the grocery stores have nothing but empty shelves and the news media is acting like we will all die an immediate death if we take a single step outside our doors, I found these books to be hard to put down.
Jane Doe: A Novel by Victoria Helen Stone
Her Last Word by Mary Burton
The Last Sister by Kendra Elliot
When She Returned by Lucinda Berry
The Stillwater Girls by Minka Kent
A couple of them had unbelievable and/or rushed endings but they were all free on the Kindle and they definitely held my attention.
Well, I'm off to scroll through photos of Hayden. I wish you all full pantries and plenty of toilet paper. Stay healthy folks.
Oh, and happy St. Patrick's Day!
