Whirlwinds...


Things have been running at whirlwind speed around The Bungalow.  There was the ready-ing of this garage apartment (one of The Old Girls).  I still have locks to change tomorrow... but, it will be getting a new tenant next week.  The wonderful thing about The Old Girls is that they always find new people quickly.  I am thankful for that.


Then, there was candy to be made this morning.  We are hosting a fundraiser party, with three other couples, for 50 people this weekend.  More work to be done on that project!

 
And, this shawlette came off the needles last night; it is blocking now.  More to be revealed...
 
 
Best of all was time with Miss Blayklee this past weekend!!  What a little doll (okay, I know a grandmother's oooohing and ahhhing must get old; but, I never tire of them)!
 
 
She was ready for a nap; and, I was lucky enough to get her to sleep in the "Noni bed (my arms)" and hold her the WHOLE nap time.  Pleasure.  Pure pleasure.  Plus, I will get the joy of keeping her a few days next week!  Yea!
 
AND, the Little Men are in flight to Texas even as I type.  We won't see them until Sunday, but I am soaring on Cloud Nine... looking forward to swooping them up in my arms!!  Lots left to do before then though! 
 
Wishing you all a wonderful week!  blessings ~ tanna

that bow on her head is texas-sized! :) i can feel your glee.

Sandy said...

Oh, she is just a little beauty and I know you are so thrilled to be with her and your other grands on the way to Texas! I remember holding my boys in my arms through their entire naps. People told me I was doing the wrong thing but I was in heaven. I waited a long time for my two babies and I wanted to cherish every moment, waking and sleeping--and I did!
Blessings~

Every time I see you with your sweet Grand Children I always see pure bliss on your smiling face and on their's, too. It makes my heart smile to see so much love. :)

Oh, the Shawlette is beautiful. I must resist...no, no I will not let my knitting needles see it. I will look away now so as not to be tempted by such a lovely project. Hmmm I love knitted lace and that boarder is so pretty....what was I saying again?

Sending hugs your way, and blessings, too dear friend. :)

Best,
Bonnie

Sounds like you've been busy, and will be busy for a while! Those candies made my mouth water. Are they chocolate-covered cherries or some kind of truffle? YUM.

What a pretty little granddaughter. I bet you made that dress too. So sweet!

AND, nice shawl!

Susan said...

Tanna, you are doing so well. Remodeling, candy, knitting and being a grandma...all good. I have been gone, but I did peek back and see the feather scarf completed. Just love it so much!!!

I love the phrase Noni Bed. That's so cute.

She is absolutely gorgeous, and you must be on cloud nine right now in anticipation of two little men arriving soon.

I think we all are very supportive of our grandma brags! It sounds like you are busy with wonderful, fun things and what a weekend to look forward to! Enjoy every minute, especially with those special little ones!

Deborah Hamilton said...

Wow, you have lots of news today. Those built in bookshelves are wonderful and the wood floors, too. Y'all did a great job! Your shawl is so pretty and I can't wait to see it on you. The granddaughter is so precious. There is nothing to compare to holding a sweet little one.

I don't blame you a bit for getting excited about spending time with your grandchildren. They are all so precious. Sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead.

Donna said...

I need to get up and do something because you are making me feel like a slacker! Got a few things on my list.
I want my new house to look like one of your old girls...truly I do! LOVE the white and the trim and the floors and the light!

Mereknits said...

When a baby falls asleep in your arms it is a gift, she is adorable.
Hugs,
Meredith

SouthernHeart said...

First of all, you look like on happy Grandmom with beautiful Blayklee in your arms! And two more on the way to Texas, I know you are thrilled. I love the garage apartment...your classy touch is evident. Love the bookcases! I could easily fill them. ;-) Too bad you're not closer!

Blessings,
Dianne

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You have been on a happy whirlwond, Tanna! Your Miss Blayklee is a sweet doll..and now you little men will soon be there --enjoy ..enjoy!

PS: Good luck with the fundraiser!

Bonnie said...

Tanna, I wonder if some of our comments don't go through. I surely thought I commented on this post. How could I forget your precious little granddaughter all dressed up in the pretty pale turquoise knitted dress that I know you knitted. It is quite alright to love your grandkids and what I like is that you share with us.

Your new shawlette is gorgeous too. The sweater you are wearing is attractive on you also. I think you properly named this post whirlwinds because you are a busy gal!

Have a great weekend. You are a sweet bloggy friend.

Judy S. said...

What a little cutie in her Noni-made dress! Sounds like you're in for a wonderful but busy week. How'd you ever find time to knit that lovely shawl? Enjoy the GK!

Stitchfork said...

Never get tired of seeing those cute faces! And that old girl of an apartment is a pretty space!

nanny said...

She is so precious!!
Busy, happy times for Noni!
Enjoy

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I would happily move into that beautiful apartment just for the bookshelves alone! I love it.
Your little Miss Blayklee is a cutie-pie! Have fun with her and the Little Men!!

Debbie said...

You are one busy Noni! I guess your little guys are there now, so I hope you're having the best of times. Miss Blayklee is lovely! The knitted wear is gorgeous. Enjoy the last of February; it's passing too fast!

Vickie said...

She's a little angel, Tanna - so precious... enjoy your Noni time with her! And kiss the back of her neck for me!
