My sister Valerie had a baby girl on Wednesday! Little Darcy Rees was born by caesaeran section at 3:15 pm in Charlottetown. Darcy is the only the second girl born into my mom’s family in two generations. She shares the grandkid stage with Jasper, Simon, and Ryan (brother Lowell’s October baby) . Simon, Ryan and Darcy were all born within 10 months — lots of great Christmases and cousin competition ahead!
Congratulations, Valerie and Mark!
Lots happening this week — which is why it’s quiet here. My pet obsession: Project Porchlight is gaining momentum and may very well brighten the national stage sometime this fall, thanks to some great emerging partnerships. We’re gonna save the planet, one light bulb at a time.
I’m reading the DaVinci Code on my palm pilot mornings and evenings on the bus. It’s a great easy and fast-paced read that takes me away from the uncomfortable seats and sneezing commuters.
A small Chinese woman handed me a newspaper when I stepped off the bus this morning. It’s called the Epoch Times. I haven’t read it yet, but I wonder about the strength and message of a publication that couldn’t come up with a better name.
