My Friend Louanne is going to be a Great Grandmother for the first time. I'm making her a "Wardrobe of Hats" for the baby-to-be (girl). I have 2 made and this will be the third when finished. This pattern is one of my favorites. It is lacey and pretty and girly -girl. Right now it is half done, and when it is done, I will post all three together for you to see.
Being a great grandmother means you don't have to do anything except cuddle and love the little one. They seem to know that you are special and they automatically love and cuddle back. It's delightful!!
"The Letters" is a book written by two authors. Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger. It is a book of letters written between husband and wife on the brink of divorce after the death of their son. The husband travels to Alaska to see where the plane went down that killed their son, and the wife rents a cottage on an Island off the coast of Maine. Their letters to each other are compelling, enthralling, and so beautifully written, that you forget that you are reading fiction. Ms. Rice's description of the Maine coast is so wonderful, that you want to go there... even though she is there during the fall, and the weather is not the best. Mr. Monninger's tale of traveling by dog sled through the Alaskan wilderness will give you a chill.. both physically and mentally. Rarely do I cry when reading a book anymore, but at the end I cried... with them and for them. This book is a must read.
