The Blogger Blues

Blogger and I are not getting along today.

I haven't been able to post any pictures, so this post will be photo-less.

Yesterday was Joe's mother's birthday, so during Spenser's naptime yesterday, I sewed a little purse organizer, using the idea from this tutorial and a matching tissue pouch. I had been racking my brain trying to come up with some idea for her birthday and that was the best I could do. (She doesn't really wear aprons. She doesn't have a need for a tote bag or fabric bag. She doesn't craft. I wouldn't know her size for PJ bottoms or a skirt, which she wouldn't wear.) I was fresh out of ideas. I did manage to raid my "quick gifts" container and found a candle and a bar of cucumber melon soap from Bath & Body Works.

Last night, after dinner, I made some banana blueberry bread with some of my fresh blueberries. I think I neglected to mention that I bought another 20-pound box on Thursday, because I ate the other 20 pounds! Oh, yes! I managed to eat nearly 15 pounds (and I might be understating myself) of those blueberries! But think of all those antioxidants and other good things rushing through my body.

I spent a lot of yesterday and today (during Spenser's nap) in "partial nesting mode." I am 32-weeks pregnant today and have been feeling the first pangs of nesting. Man, it's going to be a long, long 8 weeks ... or probably 9 weeks. I still need to dig out the old boy baby clothes to see what is salvageable after sitting for nearly four years. I don't want to do that job.

So, if blogger decides to cooperate later today (or tomorrow) I shall post my pictures.

It's almost 10:00 p.m. and it's finally working ...

I couldn't resist the picture with Spenser's hand trying to snatch the tissue pouch. I love that girl!

Cute organizer!

And eight more weeks -- that is so exciting! I'm so happy everything has been going well with the baby!

Blogger was HORRIBLE yesterday! I had to post from flickr! Geesh. But great purse organizer. I am needing one in the purse I made recently - everything sinks to the bottom.

And what is in the water? I am surrounded by pregnant women about to pop! I wish you courage as you drag out the baby clothes. I've just been thought all of ours to pass on to my sister-in-law. It is a daunting job!

Oooh, that fabric is so pretty! Nicely done Lera!
