Settling Into Fall
Well, almost. I’m so very glad that it seems to finally be cooling down at least. I’ve had enough of 100 degree weather.
Last Friday I was pleasantly surprised by scrambled eggs, a strawberry banana smoothie, coffee, and chocolate cheerios (yum!) in bed. Okay, part of that was a lie. It was my birthday, so I was actually expecting it… but that didn’t make it any less pleasant! The only difference from last year was that this time I was already awake, feeding Charlie his own breakfast in bed when Daniel carried the tray in. Charlie gets his breakfast in bed every day, of course.
The rest of the day was wonderful, too, and although I was home with Charlie all day just like I am every day, it was the best birthday ever because he wasn’t around for any of the others!
On Saturday, my little boy got to attend his second bridal shower—actually it was the shower of his soon-to-be godmother, who is getting married on October 9th. I’m so excited for her! And the rest of the weekend was spent with Daniel and his parents working on building a pergola/awning/shade-providing structure on our patio; we’re really not sure what it would technically be called. But we bought a set of furniture to put under it and hung outdoor curtains (they’re actually fabric shower curtain liners, shhh!), and our patio is completely transformed. Now I can take Charlie to hang out in the fresh air. It’s lovely!
I really don’t have too much to say this week. This weekend should be relaxing since we don’t have too much going on—hopefully housecleaning though. I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Ergo baby carrier I ordered last week. Thanks to those who made suggestions! Now, I’m off to wait outside for my sister Rose who just passed her driver’s license test this afternoon and is driving over here all by herself to see Charlie and me. What a wonderful feeling that is—it feels like so long ago!
Take care all!
