Home Again, to Mutchmor November 30th

Saturday November 30th is a great day to be in the Glebe. There's lots going on.
I will be participating in one craft sale this year - the Mutchmor Holiday Craft Fair at Mutchmor public school in the Glebe on November 30th.
The fair runs from 10 a.m. til 3. I think it's the third or 4th year for this new show.

The more-than-a-century-old school is currently undergoing a major reno in the west school yard so the 185 Fifth Avenue side, with it's impressive arched doorway, is closed.
Entry is around the building through the Fourth Avenue door, which is nonetheless grand.
There are a few other events in the neighbourhood that day , including the wildly packed Abbotsford Bazaar, so come on out and have a shopping day in the Glebe.

If you can't find parking, come over to Ella Street - there are usually spots there and it's just a short walk to Mutchmor, one of my daughter's old schools. There are also lots of side streets on the south side of Fifth Avenue.

Looking forward to a fun day!

Happy happy joy joy

Well, sooner than we grandson arrived safely this morning at 6 a.m.
 Everything is  A-ok. :)
My daughter again delivered with  no interventions.  Awe-inspiring, that woman.
All of them - Mother, Father, first daughter and new son are doing well and all catching some shut-eye.

We came down yesterday to help out and bring things for my extended stay. Little did we realize that the stay would start now. He was due Nov. 17.

Very relieved, very happy, very thankful that all went well.
New big sister was puzzled that her parents weren't home this morning but not worried. She was so sweet at the hospital too though she got a bit over-tired.

I will sleep well tonight, recalling the beautiful sight of my radiant daughter cuddling with her 2 children in the hospital bed.

It's a wonderful life.

                                            Lovely little cherubs. Re-appearing after Dec. 28th.

I've put my 2 etsy stores "On Vacation".
It seems so counter-productive to stop "retailing" at this time of year but c'est la vie - family matters matter more right now as we wait for the new baby and both his parents are under the weather.
The stores will be back in action after Christmas, around the 28th.
I likely won't make the November nor the December OMQG meetings, which is why I haven't signed up for the three fun things they are doing now...oh well, there's next year!

Oh, but then I will be putting my house up for sale, so....who knows?
All is in flux atm, so I'm going "On Vacation".
