We got a lot of goodies in our CSA bag this week.
Green beans, tomato, apricots, peaches, plums, 3 kinds of summer squash, & potatoes.
That combined with what we picked up at a local orchard - MIL needed a drive :o) (Not unlike bad little girls needing to visit the ladies room.) I am now ready to make peach cobbler from scratch. :o) (I should get some vanilla ice cream from the store.)
I finally stitched down the binding on one of the doll quilts last night - & about 1/4 on the other. :o)
My Mojo is still missing, but I did it (by hand, nicely)!
The kitten is progressing nicely - took lots of ultrasound photos (blood flow through the heart, bones, etc.)
Here is one of them - they did not scan well. (Or not, blogger is not playing nicely - it does not recognize .pdf - I think that a digital photo might look better any way - stay tuned.) I have officially popped in a few outfits - I can kind of hide it in a couple of others.
A rant or 3
1. My husband went with me to the untrasound appointment... I have been saying forever that "WE" did not want to know the gender. So when the tech asked, "Do you want to know?" Before I could even open my mouth, "I want to know but she doesn't." came blurting out of his mouth! (This is why I am hiring a Doula - I just know that he is going to ask the wrong question or say the wrong thing & earn himself a 1-way ticket to the waiting room!)
I arrived with a full bladder, but the urge did not accompany it... After many baby photographs, the tech needed to measure my cervix - the full bladder was not helping - so I went the relieve myself - leaving my husband to get he answer to the $24,000 question. What you may not understand (Part of the reason why I can not do mystery quilts) is that if someone else knows, I want to know. I would be so o.k. if he did not know... Now that he knows, I will get it out of him by any means necessary or I will ask the OBGYN on Wednesday the 30th. :o) (I am in a group practice, so the Dr. I see next, I have not seen previously - so he has no idea about my wanting or not wanting to know...)
2. My MIL came to town on Friday (She had several medical tests recently) & my husband asked her how she is... "Fine." was the response. Not unlike me, he wasn't settling for that. So on Saturday, we took her out for a ride in the country to get the scoop. (Details not necessary - this is just illustrative.) She finally cajoled my wedding ring out of my possesion - I am tired of her asking & the lies (new reasons for wanting it). (Another illustrarion.) After many dealings with is mother, Michael asked me, "Am I like that?" "YES!" Now he knows... (& I saved the truely gorey details.)
3. I am back in the office & the pile of "While you were out" is outrageous! Not to mention that I "planned" for proposals in 10-plicate to arrive today... ACK!
This comes from the file of "Do other people wonder about the same stuff?"
When you go to the restroom & the cleaning lady is doing her job, Do you feel guilty? I do. Since I snack my way through the day, I wash my hands thoroughly - so I feel extra guilty, because she sat there waiting to wipe out the basin.
More on the MIL - she brought a lovely crocheted layette set for the kitten.
Husband had a fairly nice birthday.
Visited the Clara Barton Historic site.
Surfed the blogs - lots of lovely stuff going on out there!
Not unlike others, I've got some quilting Mojo - right now - when I should be working...
