Since I’ve gotten back to updating this blog, I’ve kinda been doing an every-other-day thing (though honestly I’m not sure I’ve been keeping exactly to that).  Anyway, I’m thinking I’m going to start posting solely on Monday-Wednesday-Friday and see how that works for me.  So if you check the blog but aren’t subscribed, those are … Continue reading

Keeping a Garden on an Apartment Patio

Teddy and I are lucky that even though we live in an apartment, we have a really nice sized patio.  As in 10 by 8 feet.  Pretty huge for an apartment.  As an added bonus, there’s no balcony over it, so we have pretty decent light a good part of the day.  We do have … Continue reading

22 weeks!  According to The Bump, Peanut is 10.5 inches long and 12.7 ounces.  And s/he can hear what’s going on out in the big, wide world.  Teddy and I have been playing music: Teddy’s given some Bollywood tunes a try, and I’ve been doing lots of ska and Symphony of Science (because my offspring … Continue reading

Spring Cleaning, Hooray

Here’s something I probably (definitely) would have NEVER said 10 years ago: There is something wonderful about flinging open the windows, getting out the duster and vacuum and broom and mop, and giving the house a good scrub-down.  It just makes me happy seeing the dust off the baseboard and knowing all the books and … Continue reading

I’m so excited for canning!

I’m hoping to be able to get down to the market next week and find something yummy to can.  It’s kind of hectic around here – I’m helping organize a silent auction and becoming obsessed with checking various websites for on-sale baby stuff – but a batch of marmalade would be pretty awesome to get … Continue reading

Baby, You’re a Banana!

This is my 20th week of belly monster making, and this week baby is the size of a banana.  A banana!  Ohhh, I’m hungry. According to BabyCenter, baby is 10 1/2 ounces and measures 6 1/2 inches head to rump or 10 inches head to heal.  (BANANA!)  And obviously, the exciting bit is I’m now … Continue reading

Hopefully I Won’t Get Burned This Time

Back when I was planning my wedding, I got burned when I bought my first wedding dress.  I bought a dress from Ebay, and it was supposed to be made for me in China and shipped. It wasn’t. That dress was really pretty 😦 Anywho, you would think I would have learned my lesson and … Continue reading
