It's day 6 of the Picasso Lilies & Promises freebie

I'm expecting 2 of our grandchildren any minute and wish I didn't feel so dragged out. I know it is the effect of the antiviral medication but I really need some energy! My husband is cooking beef stroganoff (hamburger really) for the kids and I'll visit with them until after dinner. There is a Bluegrass event tonight that he will be taking them to. Larkin really enjoys the music and danced all night when he last took her along. Malachai plays cello at school so John thinks he will enjoy the bass players tonight. Hope they have a good time. Me? I'm grateful hubby has someone to go with him, because I don't like much Bluegrass music, especially not what he calls the "high lonesome" vocals. That grates on my nerves. Ill have a few hours of quiet, maybe watch a Netflix movie while doing some laundry.
The newlyweds are back in Pennsylvania after a honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands. They stayed in a villa in the area called The Baths on Virgin Gorda. My son called me today, knowing I'd be upset by a comment on their FB page about broken ribs. Whose? How? He said that the night of the wedding, when just a few people were around, his new BIL accidentally stepped on his foot. His big toe went numb but Jeremy thought it was just a passing thing. He learned yesterday that the tip was fractured. This information came when he was examined by the doctor where he works for chest pain. It seems he had been climbing some huge rocks at The Baths. Weathered by the water, there were few hand/foot holds. He was fine going up but had to press himself against the boulder as he tried to climb down. He felt something pop. Turns out he broke 3 ribs! And Berkeley lost her wedding band, handmade in Ireland, in the surf. However, despite all this, they had a great time. Tired now, they will spend July packing and getting ready to move to another townhouse in August. Jeremy goes back to his usual schedule at Patient First and Berkeley does all the name change stuff and waits to hear when she can take her state certification test as a laboratory technician.
Today's zip of Picasso Lilies & Promises is a stacked paper, 2 trim and small floral deco.

Oh my goodness, all that on a wedding and honeymoon. Someday, they will laugh about it, for now, it's probably very upsetting. Take care of yourself and get some rest while the kids are out for the evening.
