You know how they say that an activity will fill up as much time as you give it? Yeah, I'm not sure what activity it was exactly, but the days were certainly full this week.
I made it into the garden to plant peas, pull weeds and clean the chicken coop. But mostly it rained. I'm not complaining. After two years of serious drought we desperately need the water.
We spent one day just running errands. Scott needed a new pair of casual pants, and I found some practically-new Gap khakis for $3 at the Goodwill. Woohoo! That was the kind of excitement this week was made of. Like catching up on laundry, and finally sweeping the dust bunnies out of my bedroom. Totally thrilling.
Seriously, after all the partying we've done lately, I needed some time to be home. I just wish I knew where the time had gone so I could tell you all about it.
Oh! I did watch a really funny movie. Have you seen BabyMama yet? Go to Netflix right now and put it on your list. The hardest I have laughed in years. And no, I haven't seen ANY of the Oscar-winners.
Ah, see, now it's coming back to me. I had another party to go to on Saturday. A baby shower. Apparently I drank so much wine I almost forgot...
What a lovely time we had, sitting out on the brick patio of a local Italian restaurant on the one sunny, dry day of the week. The pear trees above were in full bloom, the tables were set with vases of Gerber daisies, and red camellias covered the wall behind us. We gorged ourselves on fresh bread, delicious cheeses, salad and pastas, and watched my friend Brooke unwrap tiny organic baby socks and other luxurious necessities of babyhood.
This is her first baby, and I am so excited for her. I tried not to be too jealous of all the pink. I think a post about the wonderful qualities of boys is in order soon.
