spotty with a chance of showers

Weather forecast for tonight:
dark.

George Carlin


(blooming ornamental lillies / Julie Cook / 2018)

The spring forecast in Georgia is nothing more than a living definition of
an educated guess.
One day it’s near 80, the next, it doesn’t even climb out of the 40’s…
Fickled, beautiful Southern belle she is… this thing we call Spring…

And perhaps that may be more or less my own forecast here in WP in the several coming weeks.
Spotty at best.

Life never is what we’d like nor prefer—never the ideal…
and that is certainly the case in our small corner of the world.

After her precarious maternity leave, our daughter-n-law, with the new baby in tow,
will be spending the next several weeks with us as she ventures back to work today.

She will be finishing out the school year while staying with us since her school is closer to
us versus their home in Atlanta…the idea of commuting was a no-brainer…
there will be no commuting!

Our son’s work is there, in the big city, so until a new school is found closer to them for her
or a new job is found closer to us for him…well, we’re just juggling time and space…
as well as a nearly 2 month old baby who just doesn’t believe in sleep.

So on those day’s when the night prior was sleepless, like last night, I may or may not
show up in your reader…

Sleep, perchance to dream…

I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me
Psalm 3:5

    Blessings on your new adventure! What a privilege that your daughter-in-law feels so close to you that she is comfortable staying with you and leaving little Autumn in your care.

    “Followed by scattered light in the morning…”

    The Masters Golf Tournament ended yesterday. It used to make me angry when CBS said “the natural beauty that is the Masters.” Augusta grows their azaleas in greenhouses, planting them within two weeks of the tournament. As for the plants on the course, if cold, they all having electrical blankets covering the roots. If warm, they ice the roots. All to ensure peak blooming during those four days. Yes, Southern Spring can be fickle.

    As for the baby, usually gaining weight helps them sleep at night. There are medical issues to have checked out. We are still praying for you and yours.

      I sure screwed up my English here. Sorry.

    • Thanks Mark and isn’t that so true about Augusta bon viant?! It is picture perfect with lots and lots of help!! But it does make things seem idyllic here in Georgia 🙄
      She has reflux and is in baby Zantac and a formula change may be in order but as much as I hate it— she is her father’s Daughter— ode to my son— wait til I post about her mailed but never received SS card and my daughter n laws ID being “stolen” thanks we think to the hospital

        I hope not projectile vomiting. My wife cautioned a friend in our stairwell in Germany. Based on my wife’s suggestion, they bypassed the local doctors and went to the hospital in Heidelberg. The baby’s valve upstream of the stomach had not developed properly and they had to do surgery. Hope it’s only reflux. Still praying.

      • Our son had the projectile vomiting— who knew such could come from such a tiny baby

  5. Enjoy the time with that baby! That will be blessed time and memories to cherish. When the baby sleeps, you sleep! 😉
    I get it with the weather. Why is it cold outside and it is April? We should be sweating by now. Even my birds look confused. B Blessed Julie and enjoy the season you are in.

    Even though we will miss your consistency what a wonderful ‘trade’ you have made! And our son works in the Atlanta area as well- wouldn’t it be lovely if our paths one day would cross!! Hugs to you and extra ones to share in the wee hours of the night!

    Sometimes life interferes with blogging, doesn’t it? Relish your relationships with the Lord and your family. We bloggers will catch you when you can, but I do hope we remain at least a side project. 😀

  8. Praying for you as you navigate this time in your lives! 🙂 ❤ ❤

    • Thanks Lynn—you must be playing catch-up today 🙂

      • Oh, yeah! I’ve had a really rough week… My laptop keyboard is malfunctioning, and then, some scammers hijacked the laptop’s desktop, called and left a message on the home phone about calling a number or my programming would be wiped out. Well, it’s okay because I was planning on junking it after the keyboard malfunction occurred. It’s about 6-7 years old anyway. But what a lot of hassle that makes blogging so difficult since I am frequently on the run to galleries etc, and try to work in comments on blogs as I go. I saved your posts up in the midst of all the tech chaos, though, because I always like to savor your posts in the quiet. 🙂 Love and huge hugs!! ❤ ❤
