I had great visions of blogging my visit with my new granddaughter. Unfortunately, stuff happens. MacBook battery is now dead. It runs on power cord only, which made updating from coffeeshop with wifi a non-starter. Oh well.
The weather was...interesting. It, um, snowed. No real accumulation, just a dusting, but I drove in sleet after dark on unfamiliar, twisty, hilly, very dark highways (which are also under construction) for the first time in 30 years. I did fine. I do wonder why Asheville doesn't believe in reflective paint on the roads, or lights, or street signs. It's special that way. But I navigated. In snow. It's like riding a bicycle - it comes back, but you feel wobbly.
Today was GORGEOUS! Cloudless skies and warmer, and we went for a walk. It was very sunny, so it was convenient that the hat I made for her doubled as a sun visor.
She is very beautiful. Pictures really don't do justice. She is a porcelain baby doll, with gas.
My son took this one, over our shoulders because all other angles were too backlit with sun coming in the window. I like it - I look as happy as I feel.
