Hallo, blog. I sat down at the computer to finally do some friggin’ continuing education, but…here I am instead! Tee hee! This is the current painting, pretty close to being finished. Just need to fill in those pesky blank areas with more flowers.
Currently reading. Chelsea is a funny writer, but I would never, EVER travel with her.
Saturday I met Christy at Roxy’s Diner in Fremont, YUM.
I had the Monte Cristo breakfast sandwich, which was so tasty I forgot to sample her latkes. You know the old pregnancy saying when it comes to food: “What’s hers is hers, what’s yours is also hers.”
Sunday I was supposed to host my support group at our house in the morning, but one by one, they ALL BAILED ON ME. One had a miscarriage, two had terrible morning sickness, one had jet lag…I forget what all the other excuses were, but LAME-O. I had already prepared a big strawberry salad and carrot muffins before I found out about the last few cancelers. I hate that shit. So I took the dogs to Marymoor Park to get over the sadness.
These cool fuzzy purple flowers are all over the park, but I don’t know what they are.
It was Pride weekend here in Seattle, but unfortunately I didn’t make the parade. At least I wore my rainbow hat!
I figured out later on that normally I must go to Marymoor during the week, because it was insanely crowded on Sunday. The entire parking lot, plus overflow, was full. Poor Maggie dog had a lot of competition for her tennis ball!
Kind of obsessed with this electric purple hydrangea in our backyard.
Monday, after taking my car to the tire shop to repair a tire with a nail in it and walking the rogs, I headed over to Brenna’s to hang out with her and the kiddos. Look at how big Miss Ronia is these days!
Brenna has some gorgeous hydrangea bushes in her yard as well.
True to my pregnant self, I took a nap at 3 pm on their guest bed. It was like sleeping on a marshmallow. Brenna fed me salmon and crab cakes, and I brought over the strawberry salad, carrot muffins, and caprese salad I had made. Sharing is caring!
Big old dragonfly chilling on their fence.
Yesterday at Marymoor Park with my Broad. I drove her to therapy, and the girls and I sat in the shade while she obtained more benzos (mostly for her kitties this time so she can get them groomed). Then we walked over two miles around the park, and grabbed some slushies from 711 on the way home! Yeah, summer!
Even Bear Cub (or “Goat Cub” as I call her now that she has no fur) got wet yesterday.
Let’s see. Today I am 11 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Total weight gain: 11 pounds, but WHO’S COUNTING???! (nervous, shaky laughter) I have plans to do some sort of kid park/dog park activity with Josh’s cousin Alyse and her 7 year old son and the dogs today. Tomorrow morning I have my first appointment with my lovely Jewish OB! Looking forward to that. Ta ta!
