A good weekend

We spent yesterday morning driving to an apple orchard that didn't exist. Double bummer was that the fall colors we had hoped to see have yet to pop, likely due to the unseasonably warm weather. Nonetheless, E and I had a nice time together. After the no-go about an hour outside of town, we came back to our fair city and visited the tourist trap orchard here. We had a marvelous time. I had never picked apples before, and E and I had a blast. We picked out our pumpkins too. Pictures will come later. We did have to leave a bit earlier than we had planned due to the heat. I was overheating, so we left without finding any gourds for the front stoop - something fun for next weekend.

Today, we've been working on getting some things done. After church, grocery shopping, and taking a quick nap, we again felt motivated to work on the office-nursery conversion. Currently, E is still slaving away while I take a break in the basement to cool off and write this. Gladys has been so hot this weekend that our walks have been boring; she wants to go home and lie on the kitchen tile. Ahhh... October in Wisconsin.

We have a busy evening tomorrow where we are again visiting the midwife. This time, we expect lab work and a physical exam with less emphasis on the get-to-know-ya and nutrition education piece of it. We're also really hoping to hear the heartbeat tomorrow... really hoping. We'll be 9 weeks and 5 days, so the chances are pretty good.

E and I are, by nature I suppose, very impatient. Last night, after I posted, we finished clearing out the office of everything office-related. We then couldn't help ourselves. We HAD to put up the crib and put the dresser/changing table into the room, in spite of the fact that we have yet to paint. Still, the crib looks marvelous in our house!!!

How annoying to have a wasted trip like that! Glad you salvaged the day and had a great time anyway.

Good luck with the physical tomorrow, and especially on hearing your baby's heart beating loud and clear!

It's so hot here! It's ridiculous, right!?!?!I'm glad you did get to do some apple picking - we make an event out of it with many baked apple pies afterwards. It's nicer when it's a little cooler outside!

Good luck on the visit today! I hope you get to hear the little whumpa whumpa of the little heart!

God, I love apple-picking! Did you get to have donuts too? (for some reason, apple picking and donuts go together in my head)
