My dilemma

I have a dilemma. True, it is a silly one that I have little control over, but nevertheless, I'm still left wondering. Today is a holiday we enjoy celebrating at our house, Pi Day. Our favorite way to celebrate includes circles, notably, the circles found around tasty pies. So the question is: do I want this baby born today or not?

Pros: I'm tired of this waiting game. It would totally fit our family to have a Pi Day baby. The professor just finished teaching for the day. So it wouldn't be too inconvenient. And it's got to be better than the Ides of March, right?

Cons: Unless the baby decides to embrace the pie tradition, the birthday will have to take precedence over the holiday. We may end up eating (gasp) cake on Pi Day. Or not celebrating Pi Day at all.

I suppose it is a good thing I don't actually get much choice here. This baby has a mind of its own. We'll be happy to welcome him/her to the family whenever it's time.

Apparently, this pregnancy has changed me...

The other day, we had a rash of cards show up
on beds in the house. Mine made me laugh, especially compared to the others. But, not to worry, apparently, it's what's on the inside that counts.

A Sunday Skirt

Miss M has badly needed a new skirt or dress. I've finally taken the time to remedy the situation. Presenting, my latest creation.

(As a side note only interesting to others who sew, I did my first ever blind hem on my machine on this skirt. Somehow, that makes me feel very accomplished.)
