the best laid plans o’ mice and men

March 8, 2010

So. It turns out that Saturday was one of those gorgeous Spring days in the Northwest. All baby activity was put on hold. So much for those big tackle-the-nursery plans, right? We spent the morning at the gym (waiting for the slight fog to burn off) and then rode about 30 miles on our bikes with some good friends. It was fabulous. I must admit, though, at 7 months pregnant, the thought did cross my mind of what I would do if I got out 15 miles and then the ol’ bod wasn’t up to finishing. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. Smooth sailing! No wind and plenty of sunshine. We got back and re-planned all those tasks for Sunday.

We spent Sunday morning in the garden turning beds, pruning a little, getting the raspberries in shape, and moving a lavender bush in preparation for the planting season around the corner. We threw a couple of perennial seeds in the ground, but now know that it will freeze tonight so hopefully the little boogers will be OK in their new home. I had a wedding shower to go to in the afternoon and Dustin did take advantage of the time to get going on the changing/table dresser project. Once that is ready and we can put little man’s clothes in there, I feel like the Chernobyl-ness of his room will subside some. Let’s hope.

    Brit,
    sounds like an awesome weekend – go you for riding 30 miles! holy crap! i wish indiana had nice bike trails here – there are no sidewalks and no one thinks to look for bicyclists, so its a little life risky when you go.. we puttered around in the garden too – prepping it a little bit for when it really thaws…

    glad to hear you’re doing so well! when’s your actual due date? Mine is may 7th…
