Thank goodness! I’m done with the heat! This pregnant momma is welcoming the cooler temperatures with open arms. If it’s not a million degrees outside we can actually go out there!!!
We can walk to the park and have a picnic!
And we can show the younger kids how to go down the slide.
We had a nice afternoon of fun at the park in our neighborhood on Friday. Joanna and Sweetey Petey joined us for some fun!
We’ve been enjoying delicious, juicy peaches before they’re gone for the winter.
I got snap happy with my veggies while making my first batch of soup for the fall.
It’s a good thing I made some homemade bread because the soup wasn’t that great.
It was a new recipe. A bit bland. I’m not upset, though. There’s plenty more fall to come. Plenty more time for making soup.
Hubby had to get his hands dirty and fix a constantly running toilet. A non-working toilet on the first floor of the house does not a happy pregnant woman make. Cupcake was glad to help.
I’ve been commissioned by my neighbor, who is a Girl Scout Troup Leader, to sew patches on vests, so I got the first round of those done. Before their next meeting! And before baby #2 arrives! Woo hoo! I also finished Cupcake’s Halloween costume. But I’m not telling you what it is, yet. I also started on H2.0’s costume. I’m also not telling you what it is, but I’ll show you the mess it’s making!
Remind me to never use such fuzzy fabric again! It was all over me! And it’s all over the floor! And it was going down my throat and up my nose and floating in my water and covering every inch of my work table! I’m going to have a LOT of cleaning to do when this costume is completed!
Speaking of cleaning up, remind me to not by freeze dried berries for Cupcake any more. It’s too messy!
Good thing it was bath night!!
I’ve decided hubby needs to start coming home every day to put Cupcake down for her nap. Apparently she’ll nap when he tells her to, but not when I do. She’s been fighting it ever since we took her pacifier away (2 or 3 weeks ago), but I don’t think she’s ready to give it up. She can’t make it through the evening without several meltdowns on days she doesn’t nap. She also cannot go on a 5 minute car ride without falling asleep on days she doesn’t nap. And it all started when we took the pacifier away, so I don’t think it’s a coincidence. Her black out curtains weren’t hanging for a few days while I was spray painting her hardware so maybe that had something to do with it, too………….
And I’m just waiting, now. 38 weeks and counting. H2.0 could be here any day now. Cupcake came a few days early, so it makes me think this one will, too. There’s been progress as far as dilation goes and though it doesn’t tell you when you’ll go into labor it makes me glad to know the contractions I’ve been having are doing something. There are a few more things I’d like to get done before she comes (like get our washing machine fixed, celebrate our wedding anniversary, finish her Halloween costume), but I’d also like her to get off my bladder.
Hey, do you have any great soup recipes? Apparently I could use a few!
