This morning, I drink tea, listen to music, read. Enjoy how stunningly clean and flower-filled my home is (cleaned for photos yesterday). When I wake up a bit more, I'll work on finalizing the schedule for Kriti, as much as I can. I'll remind folks that pre-registration rates go up in a few days. I'll e-mail my students their paper topic for Monday. This afternoon, Kevin and I will run a few more boxes over to the storage unit, then we go to the doctor's for the 20-week anatomy scan, making sure all of baby's limbs are in the right places. If baby cooperates, we might even find out the gender -- if it's a boy, then I get to spend some fun time going through Kavi's baby clothes, finding adorable girl things to send to baby Link Grant. If it's a girl, I'll do the same, but I'll be more inclined to hang on to my favorite outfits. :-) I also may try crocheting or knitting something for Ursula. Little green baby dragon? Also, this blanket is calling to me...maybe a modified version sized smaller for a preemie?
When it warms up a little, I have a bit of work in the garden. The honeysuckle has aphids, I think, or some other bug -- need to spray it and hope that helps. Then plant a few trailers to fill out containers (creeping jenny, sweet potato vine, etc.), plus a hanging basket of orange lantana, and a mass of bright pink million bells outside Kavi's window. I've been a little obsessed with pink and orange lately -- do you do that? Get obsessed with particular color combinations? A few years ago, it was turquoise and chocolate brown, but now I am firmly in pink-orange land. Maybe it's from having a little girl.
Most of my garden isn't blooming yet, but the early morning sun was glowing on the hibiscus and mandarin honeysuckle this morning. I had to share it with you.
