The mystery tree is starting to do stuff. 
I started doing stuff. With all the growing around here it just made sense to plant seedlings while I'm waiting. 

I got some lovely heirloom seeds and used easy-peasy Jiffy Pods to plant the seeds.
Now they are covered and sitting by the window waiting to sprout.
I am covered with a blanket sitting on the couch waiting as well.

Some shots my photographer friend Laura took - I'm glad she talked me into it! x

It's official - we are having a spring baby! 
In between taking baths and naps and visiting the acupuncturist to needle the baby out, I've not been doing much. I have really gone into my quiet little cocoon space in my own head just waiting for the baby. I am noticeably impatient with others and have very little capacity to listen to anyone. I think it's just my brain and body focussing and the most important task that's coming up. Most fantastically everyone seems to understand (with the odd exception of course).

I have been watching this tree in our garden. I can't figure out what kind it is. It's in our yard and it's big and it has black buds. I'm waiting for the baby, and waiting for the buds of the tree to open so I can see!

{Been obsessively making things with my circular cutter and paper!} 
Been watching old Friends and Season 2 of Parenthood.} 
Been making this really delicious and easy Apple Streusel slice.}
Been reading this great blog!} 

(My friend Laura came over to visit me and we had cake and tea and she took some belly shots. She is a photographer and they turned out amazing. I'm glad she talked me into it! She also explained my Canon 550D to me, I have been using the auto mode because I am technically so challenged, but I'm getting a bit more creative with it now I understand the basics and it's great fun!}
