Still Waiting

The baby still hasn’t arrived but his mother is now in the hospital in labor so it shouldn’t be too much longer now. She was told that the nurses can be cranky at the hospital but as she doesn’t speak Italian yet, she won’t understand what they are saying anyway but expressions say a lot. So I should have a new grandson sometime today, I hope. I am here now, in charge of three grandsons which can be a lot of work. I feel like I can’t relax a minute with them in my care. The two year old does really well until his four year old brother “helps”. I just wish I had their energy.

A short way from their house is Lake Lugano. We walked down to a nearby village and saw this lovely building. I think it is a private home.

A closeup. Looks like frosting decorating a cake.

A look at the lake and a village nearby. You’d never guess that this little place was here. There has been a lot of rain in the last couple days and the lake is full of water and debry.

Little boys love finding earthwarms. They want to take them to try and catch some fish.

  1. How exciting.We should be able to be grandmothers when we are younger. Such energy and stamina needed. I’m sure you are enjoying every minute though.

  2. I remember my grandmother babysitting me and saying, “I wish I had your energy.” At the time I didn’t understand why she didn’t just get up and play and run around. Now I know all to well what she was talking about.

  3. What a lovely place! And I first thought that’s a church! Lovely building as well. And I do agree that the carvings look somewhat like the icings on the cake! 😀

    I have to admit I’ve no guts to grab a worm… *shudders*

  4. P/S: Now I know you’re a lady of a grandma status. You sound very young to me, like a woman in her 30s. 😀

    I hope your grandchild will turn out to be a cutey as well! 😉

  5. Hope that you have that grandbaby by now and that everyone is great and resting. Sounds like you are enjoying the other boys, even though they keep you jumping! Worms – yuck….
