Tact in hot weather.

It’s gonna be a  hot one today. I’d like to just do the grocery shopping in my men’s cotton pj bottoms and tank top…but the rest of the world should  not be subjected to my pregnant form in that manner. =)

Still, I might go sooner than usual to get it done with before the heat comes in, so I can retreat back to the cool house. =)


It is a slow day today, but I am getting things done.

Some computer work, a new catloaf for Anais to eat, lunch for me. I will make some beads this afternoon and go for a walk for exercise. And do a load of light laundry. DLJ has a user’s group tonight in downtown Portland so it’s a night alone till he arrives. Tomorrow is our second Birthing From Within Class, and it’s Dad night, the instructor said she had some Daddy info on deck, so that should be good for DLJ.

It’s cloudy, I’d like a sunny day but it’s better for the garden this way. I need to have some salad for dinner to keep up with our lettuce down there, it’s growing so well. I am looking forward to the broccoli!

I should clean off this desk.

And get out of my pyjama bottoms! I need to drop some stuff off at the recycling center sometime this week as well, to clear out the garage a little more.
I am definitely looking forward to my walk later. I try to walk everyday with DLJ or R., a friend who is also pregnant. I enjoy my time with her very much, I hope once we both have our kidlets we can continue the walking.


I know, I have been. I have been busy. Mom came to visit, in-laws arrived the day before she left…

Things have been hectic but should slow down now.  It’s very warm today, a nice day to be not doing much of anything. DLJ took the day off to say goodbye to his parents, now they are gone and it’s too hot to do much until the cool of the evening sashays in.

Time to start making more beads, both for sale now and for inventory the first months with the kidlet around until I figure out how it’s all going to work. I just won’t know until I get there how I will arrange everything…so might as well play now with fire while I can with no one wanting anything from me. It’s almost third trimester time. I am feeling better about being Mom, not that I ever felt BADLY…I’m just adjusting. Less moments of ambivalence….but I do still lament how I am about to lose so much of my alone time, something I really enjoy.
