The weather is a bit warmer these days. We have eaten dinner outside on the patio twice in the space of one week which, for me, is the mark of spring. My roses, so heartbreaking to prune back in January, now have little tiny buds all over the new branches.
My sister Elizabeth flew down last night to spend the Easter weekend with us (He is Risen…you know what to say…). Tonight we are going to take her to Yard House for beer and appetizers (obviously, I will not be partaking of one of those options). Telfer is working from tonight to Sunday morning so I am beyond thankful for the company of my sister.
Thank you for all your kind words in response to our big news. We are obviously quite excited. So far, and I ALMOST feel bad saying this, but I have felt really good. At almost thirteen weeks, I am just hungry and still really tired. Two weekends ago I was at the store and suddenly needed dill pickles and salt and vinegar kettle chips…my only craving so far!
One more thing: Henry figured out how to jump on our bed unassisted yesterday. I gave him a bath in preparation for his Aunt Elizabeth’s visit and came out of the bathroom to find a wet dog whirling around all over our clean bedding. Naturally, I took a picture.
