Rain, rain, go away....

I'm a summer kind of girl. I'm rather attached to my flip flops. I want to see flowers in my garden again. I took this flower picture this fall in September. This same plant is now a drippy, grey mess of twigs which I need to prune back to the ground in preparation for spring. I would have done it this week if it hadn't of rained...all..week...long. It's too wet to do anything except sit in the house and watch the rain drip down the windows. You can tell me all about how California has been in a drought this summer and the rain is much needed...but the rain always makes me feel dreary and lazy.

In other strange news, Tone and I noticed around New Years that my spring bulbs were already starting to pop out of the ground. They have never come up before March before or at the earliest late February. And it's all of them. All of my different varieties of bulbs and flowers. Huh? I hope we don't have a frost that kills them because they popped up 2 months too early.

I have an ultrasound coming up on Tuesday. The fun one where you might get to see if there's a boy or girl in there. I guess boy, but I'll let you know. I love the second trimester. I no longer feel sick, I don't feel big and bulky yet, and the baby is making itself known with little squirms and kicks. Most of my low rise jeans are still fitting thank goodness, and so I'm still wearing my favorite pairs of pants. Woo Hoo!

I'm sorry this might be a somewhat boring post, but because of the rain, I haven't gotten any good photos this week. There just isn't enough light for the camera, and I hate flash photography. I do want to get a light scoop which could solve this for me. In fact I am drooling over it. Photography is becoming a very expensive hobby!

  1. I'm ready for the rain to go away too! That's weird that your bulbs have come up so soon. Mine came up a little early last year, but managed to survive.

    I'm glad you're feeling better and can't wait to hear what you guys are having! Sooo exciting! Keep us posted!
