Snow, Snow, Really

We really have had our first snow storm and not just a dusting either. We got 3 plus inches of wet snow and it is still there this morning. It is supposed to be 7 degrees centigrade or around 45 degrees Fahrenheit today so maybe it will go away today. Most of the trees have already lost their leaves but we do have two trees in our yard that have just started to lose their leaves, so that wet snow just laid on them and bent the branches over to almost the ground. Thank heaven it only lasted one day.
DH and I are still over the moon about our grandbaby to be. I already have a baby cheater quilt done and another project on the go. I also want to go to Calais, Maine, to get some baby flannel material to make a couple of baby quilts so DD can have one quilt here and one home to put on the floor to put the baby down. This will also serve as a place for the baby to be put down in front of us so we can just marvel and just enjoy admiring our new bundle of joy. Do I already sound like a grammy? DH and I can hardly contain ourselves.
I have started to read "the Help" and so far I have found it very interesting. The only trouble is I am not finding much time to read anymore. Everyone I have talked to about this book, they have really enjoyed it thoroughly.
Happy Halloween to everyone. We live 2 miles in on a private road and therefore do not get any Trick or Treaters.

OMG!!!! I am so excited and happy! Our daughter and her hubby told us that we are going to be grandparents. Do you believe it? They are both 40 years old and have been married for 16 years. Our daughter has had serious health issues and because of this, we never thought we would ever be grandparents. After two ultrasounds and extremely wonderful medical care, we are told that the baby is fine and all is normal. We are still keeping our fingers crossed and praying that all keeps going well. We can hardly wait until this precious bundle of joy arrives.
We just got back from Moncton tonight. We went there so we could visit my MIL and give my BIL and his wife some relief from caring for my MIL. She is not well and finds it hard to get up and does not want to eat all her meals. So someone tries to be at the Home at least at lunch time to make sure she eats at least one meal. She will eat for us more so than the Home staff.
The weather here has been unusually warm for this time of the year. We are hoping this warm weather will stay for a long while yet. The coloured leaves are just about all down already, but they have been beautiful this year.
Take care until next time!
