|Ayla shelling peas-waiting for Baby Henry in Portland, Oregon|
This is my beautiful daughter, Ayla in her Portland home shelling peas from her garden, waiting for the birth of dear baby Henry, her first child. He's overdue, and we're finding things to do to curb our anticipation.
I arrived Friday, two days ago, flying over the Appalachians, the Great Plains, the Rockies, the high desert, the Cascades, and glorious Mt. Hood gleaming below my airplane window.
