Yesterday was Jed's last day in town; Lakshmi stopped by too, and between them, we managed to clear out some old garden stuff and finally finish and hang the gazebo curtains, which should help provide a nice shady spot for baby and me to hang out this summer. In late afternoon, Jed and I just hung out for a while, which was nice. After he left, my sister stopped by with curries for us! So nice; I was getting really sick of takeout and/or simple sandwiches, which is about all I've had the energy to deal with in the last week. I did cook a bit yesterday lunchtime (kiri bath made with red rice, plus some chicken tikka masala with sauce from a jar) but now with her food we actually have enough for several full meals. After eating too much, Kev and I watched an episode of Heroes and then he coaxed me into actually getting up and sorting through papers and paying various almost-overdue bills -- and then, triumph of triumphs, we finally put away all the laundry.
Karina seems to think I'm overly-productive for a very pregnant lady, but it just makes me feel so much better, checking these things off my to-do list, I can't tell you. Put it down to nesting impulse, okay? :-) Today, sleepy baby. Me, not the baby, who is still kicking and punching pretty steadily. She had a few days when she was kind of quiet, and I started to worry, but then yesterday, she moved around lots, so she's probably fine. I woke up at 6:30 this morning, and got up and had breakfast and talked to Karina and read a little -- and then fell asleep on the couch for another two hours. Oops. S'okay, though -- I have a bunch to do today from 2 - 9 or so, but can afford to take it easy until then.
I'm going to go do a tiny bit of gardening now, I think. Just get a few potted annuals into a window box; I should have enough energy to manage that.
