Life has been busy since I arrived in Portland on Tuesday. Polly and I got here a few hours before Mandy & Brad arrived home. Piper stayed with me yesterday and didn't go to day care so she could get some good naps. She slept almost four hours in total for me during the day. Poor baby was exhausted from traveling. 7 1/2 months old and she is trying to walk. The pediatrician said today that probably within a few weeks she'll be walking on her own without ever crawling. You'll see a picture if her below. I also have some pictures of flowers here at Mandy's. Can you see the bees in the yellow flower? The peony bush is loaded with buds.
The necklace was my Mother's Day gift from Mandy & Brad. It has a disk with all 3 grandchildren's names and a disk that says Grandma and also a heart. I LOVE it.
I had a much anticipated lunch today with my sweet, sweet blogging friends Gracie, Teresa & Taci in Gresham. We had a wonderful time and over two hours passed in a flash. Look at the lovely goodies we gave each other. Gracie brought us each a hand crocheted hot pads. Mine will be much used in the trailer this summer. Taci made us crocheted bookmarks that I plan to use in my devotion book. So pretty. And Teresa gave us each 6 eggs from her chickens. Yum!! I gave the ladies each a dishcloth and a coaster with sheep in a road that says "Rush Hour". I thought that would be good for these ladies who live so close to Portland!
I stayed an extra day at Mandy's request but plan to go home early tomorrow. I hope to be driving by 6:30 a.m. I have lots to do tomorrow at home and the plan is to go to the lake tomorrow night. :-) Not even one night to sleep in my own bed.
And now, I'm off to bed so I'll be ready for my 6 hour drive home tomorrow.
Have a lovely weekend my friends.
