Dawn Is Having A Baby!!!
The internet is a strange and beautiful thing. I am constantly amazed at the people that I meet and get to know who I may never actually meet “in real live human form”. We only meet over the internet.
But just because we don’t meet face to face doesn’t mean that we aren’t friends. True and tight bloggy friends. And one of my favorite of all my bloggy friends is Dawn over at Spontaneous Clapping. Go over there right after this and look around. You will love her too. And if you don’t then you are going to have to deal with me……
And it won’t be pretty.
But what is this really all about Debbie. Why are there no Quick Takes today? Well I will tell you……
It is because Dawn is having a Surprise Internet Baby Shower!!!!!!!!
Are you surprised Dawn????? I hope so. I am imagining the look on your face.
All of us who know you, who love your writing and your marvelously lovely pictures of food and your wonderful husband, “B”, are so excited about the Peanut who is going to arrive in just about……41 days I think. We just had to lavish virtual confetti and snacks and punch on you. And then we are going to open gifts.
I was trying to think back to how I discovered Spontaneous Clapping and Dawn. I just can’t remember to be honest with you. I think, and this is only speculation, that I must have followed a link on someone’s blogroll and found her and then just hung around, sort of like the friend in Jr. Hi. that you just can’t get rid of. The one that wants to be your friend so badly but you just don’t know what to do with.
I am a pitiful person.
But I digress.
I hung around. I read her archives (doesn’t that always feel sort of like stalking to you). I commented on occasion.
And Dawn emailed me back to thank me for commenting.
And then she commented over here at Chez Knit
And then we became best bloggy friends and….
OK not BEST bloggy friends but you get the picture.
When Sasha emailed me about the virtual shower I was all, “Oh YES!”. Such excitement. But then the question became what should I give her and Peanut. Decisions, decisions……
So let me show you what I decided. Sorry Dawn but I am going to have to open up the gift for you.
Crinkle, crinkle, rip, tear, shred…..
First off there are….
And these books were some of our very favorite. We still quote lines from them even though the progeny are 23, 22 and 19. That is how much we loved them.
And the other part of your gift is…….
A sweater for Peanut. Babies just need sweaters. They scream for sweaters. Especially ones that are warm and cool and knit with love.
So Dawn and B, congratulations on the wonderful new life that is about to enter. I wish I was there in person to give you a big hug and rub your belly. I always want to rub pregnant bellies for some unaccountable reason. I try to restrain myself.
I can hardly wait to see loads of pictures of the little crumb cruncher. You are going to have so much fun.
Edit: Don't you hate when you have to go back and add something after you have posted a post. I am perfect, I shouldn't have to edit.
ANYWAYS. I always "name" my knitting projects. I am odd that way. And this particular sweater is.......
Peanut's Dreams of Cocoa.
Now I am done.
