Brown Door - Italy


Brown Door - Italy

The trip yesterday to SC went well, if a bit slowly ... a bit of rain, TRAFFIC!, and waiting for over an hour to eat lunch en route ... but we ararived safely...

Such joy to see T again .. to watch Christmas unfold once more as a 2 year old opens gifts and wants Nonna to play and see and do ....

My son-in-law looks grand, and my daughter -- radiant! I think our new grandchild will be born in a few weeks judging from the way my dd is carrying right now ...!!

A very busy day, one filled with joy and laughter and the fatigue of travel. I sketched a bit just before falling into bed -- but I'll have to post those when I get home. This sketch was done before leaving home ...

I hope everyone has a most restful weekend! We're planning another busy day ... there's much to get done before the n ew baby arrives, and we still have a few gifts for T to open .... I DO LOVE these looonnnnggg celebrations!

Wow Lin... Sounds like a very busy day... but a lot of fun... Us grandmas really have fun with our little ones don't we... I know you're really excited about the new granbaby coming soon... I don't remember is it a boy or girl? How long are you staying at your daughters? Have fun and Keep safe.

I've never seen this style of door before. Lovely.

How exciting, another grandchild. You are very lucky!

Oh what an unusual door and the greenery above it just sets it off along with the tree on the right. I am always amazed and surprised by your daily painting -- such a nice way to start my day!
Hugs and happy trip,
