Civic Duty

pillow 005

Today it was my civic duty to sit at the court house all day and wait to be called by a judge. Luckily they realized that we were all just hanging out for the movies and no one got called for a jury all day. Yay!
I rode the bus home which was fine, once I got on, because it was damn cold out today and downtown where the courthouse is the streets make little wind tunnels. Brrr!
Tomorrow we leave and that pillow goes to it's new home. I think it is going to fit right in. I got the idea after looking at a book my dad gave me for the holidays. It turned out perfect. I really like and plan to make more... Maybe a few more and I could open up the etsy shop with them.... hmmmm...
In baby news we laid in bed for a couple hours on Sunday feeling the baby move around. I got it to move enough that Senor was able to feel it once or twice. The belly keeps getting bigger! Senor started reading it the Series of Unfortunate Events books last night. I love getting read to sleep!
We are going away for a bit and hopefully will come back with great pictures and fun stories but don't any of you hold your breath. It is possible we'll run away and never come back!

20 weeks

So here we are half way to making a baby. In about as long as I've been pregnant I will have a baby to bring home. It seems so short and so long. It was warm when we found out we made a baby! Now it seems like it is snowing everywhere but here...
I am hoping to wrap up some projects I have going in the next week or so. Perhaps the sun will come out and I will be able to take pictures!

Posts are getting farther and farther apart... Part of the reason is I can't post about things I am making right now for for fear the person they are being made for will be watching. Holidays are great for getting the crafting in gear but not so great for showing it off.

What I can show off is what is in the oven:


Hello little micro-'by! Keep up the good work and we'll see you again in about 21 weeks!

Not Much for Words

Sometimes, especially recently, I find myself without words. Not lost, just very quiet. So here you go, interpretation is up to you:
