Week Four: Boring

My blog apparently. Not me. Although that could have been implied. Or perhaps it was that Son#2 had already read the comments re how gorgeous The Most Adorable Granddaughter in the World#4 is and was disappointed that there were no new ones. Whatever the reason, Son#2 told me my blog was getting boring.


I was going to show him. I was going to update yesterday with a super-exciting blog post but I was having huge internet issues. Even Son#4 who should have been able to sort out the problem was stumped. I guess we could blame it on the huge storm we had Saturday night - a storm that had me feeling homesick for the electrical storms I used to have back home and DH annoyed because our dog barked the whole time, ruining his enjoyment of the storm.

Anyway, it's sorted now but any inspiration for an exciting blog post has long since fled.

I will admit that our ongoing renovations are getting closer and closer to the exciting stage. Predictions we had heard of how awful building or renovating a home could be have so far come to nothing. Instead, the building seems to be progressing nicely and reports indicate that windows and kitchen are also coming along. I thought that updating regularly on my blog would be what would keep me sane ... but there doesn't appear to have been the need for that as yet (my family would argue that I am already too far gone for saneness).

(Photos of what used to be my kitchen, above, and what will be my new kitchen, below.)

(Sigh. That pile of rubbish is not getting any smaller. And it seems to have been joined by an assortment of other items that definitely did not come from the house. I suspect DH has been cleaning out his shed and just dumping it on our grass. I don't think it matters much at the moment anyway.)

And if none of that is exciting, perhaps this may prove more interesting:

(I don't need confirmation that The Most Adorable Granddaughter#4 is gorgeous but if you feel so inclined to comment it seems that Son#2 would be highly appreciative.)

And this:

Son#3 showed The Most Adorable Granddaughter in the World#2 a simple magic trick: that of the disappearing coin. She had her own unique approach to the trick: throw it under the couch! Son#3 then tried putting the coin in his eye and of course, The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 had to try too!

While she was doing that, DH was making pompoms with The Most Adorable Granddaughter in the World#1. And The Most Adorable Granddaughter#3? She was just being her usual gorgeous self of course!

Hi Jules,
Hope son and DIL #2 see this blog post, and read how beautiful I think their daughter is. All your granddaughters are lovely!

Oooh, more pictures of your granddaughters! They are all so gorgeous. I would love to play with them.
I should add (for your Son) that Granddaughter#4 is precious and super sweet! She has so much hair, by the way ;) I'll stop now, before I start babbling uncontrollably (I do that when I see babies :D).

Just wanted to add that I loved the bit about Most Adorable Granddaughter #2 doing her own version of the coin trick--it made me laugh.

And they are all extremely, extremely beautiful.
