We blog folk who knit and crochet, are usually distanced. Is that why our blogs are such a comfortable place for me right now? IT is one thing that hasn’t changed in our 2020.
I Love that Deb (araignee) compared her daughter’s kittens sutures to my son’s kitten’s sutures . They found an infection after the comparison and I am so happy for that. I love how we learn so much from each other and so much of is , has nothing to do with knitting. I hope, Deb, your grand kitty is feeling much better.
Sue , Mrs. MacCawber, do you know what Wisconsin flower this is? it is beautiful and in a the grassy areas nearby. It know others may say it is a weed, but I love the deep color. I bet the pollinators love it , too.
I am having a virtual tomato race. I want Deb, Araignee to compete with me. Anyone else want to play Tomato race? If you are growing them in your garden, lets race. We can play for first ripened, and biggest tomato. So two categories. The first ripened is , kind of climate, zone dependent. But the biggest by weight will be a fun one too. Joining? The geese have nothing to do with anything. I just though this family was huge .
I have to either take a break from the shawl, which is coming along so well now, or finish it. All of the knit two togethers are making my wrists and finger joints hurt. I’m such a baby!
Lastly, for today, I have to tell you that a friend of Zach’s just had her first baby. She was tired and she was having to give it oral medication. Zach asked me to explain how to do this to help her. I said, Zach just give her my phone number. Nope. He said we could Facebook friend and message that way.
I felt so so good helping this new mom. She’s right where your are when the new baby is making you go deep deep down in your avenues of sleep, and your battery isn’t recharging well. I encouraged her. I explained pumping, putting medicine in a tiny bit of formula or milk and giving it in a bottle. They gave the poor new parents a syringe and no instructions as to how to give it to the baby. OF course, the baby balked at syringe method .
I blurted out to Fireman: Oh my God. My life has meaning again. I’m helping a fellow mom with baby questions. What? my life has plenty of meaning. But you know what, there was something about helping her that made me so happy. And she was so grateful and she said they were so relieved after the bottle method, when she messaged me before bed.
Here I am showing them how to hold a baby to bottle feed it. They asked about positioning during medication administration. Do you like my owl baby? My mom adored babies. We fostered them while I was growing up. I get it from her. I’m waiting on TINK to have her cria baby!!
