A-A-A: An Auntie Again

I am an auntie again!

Getting to witness my niece enter the world is going to be one of the highlights of my whole life. I think being an Auntie is nearly better than being a mother, because I get a new little bundle in my life to love, and I don’t have to go through the pregnancy and childbirth part. That’s a win-win in my books!

We have been in the full swing of Spring around these parts. The farm Marc works for got chickens and it could not be more thrilling for Gabrielle. There are tomatoes forming in tiny green balls on our tomato plants. The barbecue is getting a work-out again and we are rejoicing with on-the-deck dinners and lots of picnics.

I recently had the chance to volunteer at Mother-fest at Mothering Touch Store in Victoria. Holding new babies and oggling at all the pregnant bellies was as wonderful as you can imagine. And now we are about to plan our first camping trip of the season. Nope- no sailing yet as we’re waiting on our boat cushions to be finished before we head out into the waves. (They are getting re-covered with some very spiffy fabric. Blog post to come)

You know, as a drive to prenatal appointments with clients, or to a book sale, or to pick up honeybees, I write little blog posts in my head. But then when I get a quiet moment, I find myself reading or knitting, or working on my new course I’m taking and not blogging. So do excuse the quietness around these parts. Sometimes life is just bursting and this is the most quiet part of my life!

    Congrats on being an auntie! Yup, one thing I love about nannie-hood is the ease by which it comes, for me at least. Thanks to Siobhan and James for making it easy for us to have a new babe in the family!

    About the boat cushions. Still in process but coming along. Now that I am home for a week, my sewing machine will be working hard to bring them to re-coverage. Thanks for your patience!

  2. when I dream about going back to land life, you are my model for how sweet it can be! meanwhile, can’t wait for the cushions to be unveiled. :-)
