This day, this day, this glorious day...this glorious day in MAY!
As of just a few short hours ago, I can now say "next month" when someone asks me when this baby will make her debut. Next month. Oh yes sir, yes sirreee bob, it's true. Say it with me friends...
Shall I regale you with a neurotic list of the things I plan to accomplish before 37 weeks? Followed by a similarly alarming list of all the things I plan to do between weeks 37 and 40? No. Not today. Soon, but not today.
Today I'll tell you about an impromptu walk down a country road. Our country road. Morel hunting and flower picking. Finding the perfect stick. A springtime breeze blowing from the west. The sweet smell of jasmine. Our neighbor's tractor. Laundry hanging to dry. A ring discovered in the dirt on the far side of the barn by an excited little girl.
It's a good day. A very good day.
