Too pretty to eat!
I went to my god daughter Elaina’s baby shower on Sunday, the them was “Watch me Bloom” and the place was decorated in all things sunflower. I so related, since I have a volunteer sunflower growing in my corner garden, dropped there by a bird most likely, since the neighbor’s bird feeder practically hangs over the adjoining fence.
Anyway, the table with the sweets as well as the table with the healthy snack options, were both pretty, so fancied up with all those sunflowers. Of course, I could not partake of anything at the sweets table, but I did have a small snack of meat and cheese, with a few veggies from the healthy table.
Alaina looked beautiful, she is due on June 1st, you can see she is ready to pop any day now. This will be her first child, her sister Emma has two…the entertaining and adorable Maili, and her big brother, a handsome little dude, Chase. We were given a packet of sunflower seeds with the words “A baby is blooming, watch me grow” on them. Baby Evalynn due to arrive June 1, 2020.
The shower was fun, I caught up with friends and Elaina’s grandma Jo, who reminds me of my own mother-in-law. I don’t know why, but I always end up hanging out with my elders instead of my friends, I think it’s a respect thing. Or maybe I relate to older people better, after working in nursing homes for many years. Of course, it could be that I spend 50% of my time with my dad too.
The visit was nice, some people wore masks and others did not, now I have to be concerned about whether I picked anything up and was I being selfish not to wear a mask, and should I wear one on our girls trip coming up?? UGH, I hate this virus and what it’s doing to our way of life. Until Miss Stephanie brought the subject up last night, I hadn’t even given it much thought. Now I’m sitting here thinking about the fact that I visited Dad yesterday, and hugged him before I left. I can only hope and pray we are all going to be alright.
