Roosted With Roasted Coffee

Here I sit, in my daughter's kitchen sipping a cup of freshly brewed (Keirig) coffee. Upstairs I hear footsteps, which means we'll all soon be scurrying to deliver some to the airport, another to school, and yet another (me) to the land of new babies.

Molly & Tom are headed to the Caribbean for a wedding (poor dears), so my commission here is twofold: bunk in with Rylie while Mom's away, and make a beeline to son Kelly's house to get my hands on the newest addition, Kole (look to the right).

On Sunday, Father's Day, I'll prepare dinner for all the dads in the family - - the first such gathering since we left ten years ago. Can't wait!

Amidst all this I'm investigating, planning, thinking, strategizing, praying and hoping to register for the Girl Gathering at Black Mountain, NC from September 24th to the 26th.

For now, I'm simply content to wear my Grandma hat. It like it best.

Congratulations, Kathleen, on another addition to the family. Kole is adorable. I'm enjoying looking at him as I sit here with a cup of coffee in my daughter's kitchen! May God bless little Kole's life with His grace and protection.
