So this happened yesterday at the reveal party…and I can’t believe it…

Pink! It’s a girl!

I’m not quite excited because I don’t think it has sunk in yet. I did go out and get a baby girl outfit and a baby boy outfit before the party so I could give her the first outfit for this baby so she has one pink outfit and it is from this Nana! Many more to come and I might just try to dust off my crochet hooks! The first girl after three boys is sure to be a favored child! But then again, each one is my favorite!

That’s about all that has happened this week…preparations for the party and then the party and then the disbelief! Now the name game begins. I am not looking forward to that.

I did read a whole novel since last week. It was another good one, although not what I normally read. It was also a freebie from Kindle for Samsung (you can get a free novel each month if you download the Samsung Kindle app for your Samsung device). It’s not a new title but it and its author were both new to me, Out Of the Black by John Rector.  I’ve started another which is also not my usual type of book. Not sure if I like it. We’ll see if I can get through it. I’ve finished all seven seasons of The Gilmore Girls and all seven of The West Wing. I am currently streaming the last season of Army Wives which I missed when I got rid of TV a few years ago.

Our “killer storm” turned out to be almost nothing, at least in the greater Portland area. Lots of rain but not unbelievable amounts for this area. Lots of wind but nowhere near the anticipated high sustained winds. So we can breathe a sigh of relief and wait for the next one.

What about you? What is new in your world?

Today’s the day that the BIG STORM is supposed to come in. So far we’ve seen a lot of rain, thunder, lightning, hail, and strong wind gusts. But nothing like what has been predicted. That may change. It’s 1:30 in the morning and the storm is not scheduled to come in yet, not until later today. So we shall see what we shall see.

Today’s the day that we find out if Grand Baby Number 4 is a girl or a boy. We are doing a gender reveal this afternoon so I’ve been busy helping my daughter run around and find things for the party…cheap things because neither of us has money. She was able to get some things for free from the local Buy Nothing group. And just about everything else was found at the Dollar Tree. I am making some signs and decorations. She bartered with a woman who works at a bakery so the cake cost her nothing! The food is being prepared from items given them by the Gleaners group they belong to (surplus food from grocery stores donated to low income families). I should actually try to sleep because, although the party is not until 3 this afternoon, I have a poster to prepare for the morning so hand lettering and gluing and decorating it. I also agreed to make up little slips of paper for name suggestions. Luckily, I found a flamingo rubber stamp and they are going with flamingos for baby decorations, I think. So index cards will be stamped with flamingos for name suggestions. And I am doing the prep for that.

Then I will find my hands and sit on them so I do volunteer to do anything else!

In any case, I will be back tomorrow with a coffee share and the baby’s gender! I have all but lost hope of having a grand daughter, after three grandsons. But who knows?! Maybe they’ll surprise me. 🙂
