Lucky me

So the cooking gods have been smiling on me recently and my creations have been turning out very well. I made another batch of muffins today; this time chocolate chocolate chip for my sweet tooth sweetie. I also made some delicious homemade french bread and some amazing tamale pie tonight for dinner. I am not sure what to try next. Any suggestions? Something maybe to enjoy the seasonal veggies?

In other news, my cat has become the uber hunter. He has twice now captured rabbits and brought them home to us. The first was long gone by the time we found it, but today he brought one like a little baby and it was perfectly untouched. We released it outside as I wasn't in the mood for any rabbit stew tonight.

Baby's due date is Sunday but according to the midwife, it looks like it will be another week and a half before he actually gets here. I am officially off work now, which has helped quite a bit. I have been pretty much taking it easy as I have a hard time when I am on my feet too much, but I have been getting a lot of reading done. I am almost through with The Womanly Art of Breast Feeding. I also have Robin Hobb's latest, Renegade Magic, but it is for after the birth...if I can wait that long.

In gardening news, my runner peas are popping their little heads out of the ground nicely. They are just so cute!

OK, well I don't have much else to say. Have a great weekend!

Well sis - I'm praying baby comes sooner than the midwife's expectancy! Would love to taste some of your current creations. Joe's a lucky man. Miss you darling.

How exciting your due date is almost here! It doesn't seem like it's been that long...but I guess it has been since late fall when you first blogged it! Are you birthing at home or a center? Do you have any sitz bath balls? I'd love to send you some to aid in your recovery after if you want! Also-if you don't have your baby care stuff yet-check out my girlfriends line...I swear by it! And it all works great with cloth diapers (trust me you don't want to use mainstream stuff on your cd' will stain the heck outta them!) Can't wait to hear your birth story!
