Fall Weather

Monday, October 22, 2007

Finally! The sunny fall days I've been missing have arrived! This evening, we had a picnic dinner and took a walk through a cemetery near our house. This particular cemetery is incredibly beautiful with rolling acres and natural vegetation. It is unique in that it is not heavily landscaped & sterile like so many other cemeteries in the area. It's very old, and many founders and leaders of Portland are buried there. I've seen plots that go back to the early nineteenth century.

I got a lot accomplished today, and I think the bright weather motivated me. Raked up a bunch of leaves, packed away all the maternity clothes I've outgrown, wrote thank-you cards for our shower gifts, vacuumed & did several loads of laundry, and the list goes on. At this point, I'm just about ready for the new baby. I still need to wash everything in Dreft & purchase a co-sleeper and/or Moses basket, but I think I'm just about ready. Oh, and Landon will need to assemble the Papasan nature swing & vibrating chair. A blue gingham Brest Friend arrived in the mail this past week, and I'm looking forward to trying out this new & improved product. I used a Boppy with Samuel, but it wasn't incredibly supportive, so I think what I have now will work better. I put the infant carseat in the backseat of the car, and having another baby really felt real when I saw two carseats! There isn't any room in the backseat now, so we'll have to keep everything in the trunk of the car, which is actually the safest place for anything that isn't strapped down. We're not going to get a new car this fall, because it feels like a big decision to make right around the birth, but I'm hoping that in the spring we can upgrade to a roomier family car, like a Suburu. I'd like to avoid an SUV or a minivan if at all possible! Anyway, I'm so happy now that some sunny weather has come our way! It's amazing how one's energy levels change with the weather patterns.
