Ms. Judy (our neighbor) gave us some irises from her yard.)
And they are doing great on our side of the line! (Clearly my short-term memory is struggling since I took a picture of the same thing two days in a row.)
Short Pump Town Centre
Andy was working at the Firefighter Games so Sister and I brought Adah out there to visit and practice spraying a fire hose.
My weekend of working. At least there was nice enough weather to take a break in and let my dogs rest.
Pulling wires up and pushing them back down. We are pretty much master electricians by now.
Lovely flowers greeting me as I went to take a nap between works.
Showing off our pregnant bellies. One of us is much more convincing than the other, and it's not me.
The bi-pus just hanging out on the couch.
It's a weeding kind of day. (Clearly overdue.)
Making the seasonal clothes switch and preparing for a yard sale. Pretty impressed with my get-rid-of pile.
My first Mother's Day involved a Chipotle picnic (Andy knows how to get me. And my burrito baby definitely outweighed my real baby.) and the Compline service. Pretty lovely way to spend the evening really.
Using fire extinguishers as models for our future wall cutouts.
New faucets installed! On both sides! Which means we can brush our teeth and spit simultaneously without worrying about hitting each other.
The cutest cupcakes ever made! (Tiny cones!)
If only we were so lucky to be done after the first attempt. Alas, a little leaking, a plumber visit, a few trips to the store, and two more days of working on this later, we have functional faucets!
Giving Adah a ride around the neighborhood.
That yard sale I was talking about. A giant dog came and were instant friends. Also, I sold zero percent of those clothes, but immediately brought them to the Goodwill truck. Better luck next time.
Took a trip down to Dominion River Rock to see what it's all about. I didn't paddle board or anything, but I did eat ice cream while watching others.
It's annoying when she insists on getting behind the blinds in the middle of the night. Luckily this was during waking hours.
Our friend Tim came for a quick visit before leaving the country and helped Andy hang the hammock. Then we each took turns napping in it.
Culinary school dinner! It was a grilling class and there were lots of veggies. (I'm not usually so lucky.)
It's nice and sunny but there's a crazy rainstorm going on out there. I thought for sure a tornado would drop down or at least a gold pot would fall in my lap.
The past two days of work were spent making these guys. I bought one and I could've eaten the entire thing but decided to share.
Dot's Back Inn
It has been so long since I've had pancakes. Holy cow.
Strawberry picking at our neighbor's friend's patch. We made out like bandits.
No kitchen and a billion strawberries to hull is not a great combination. Sharing with Adah after she let me use her kitchen to clean, cut, and make a pie.
A giant vat of salsa and a giant bag of chips.
It has walls again! And some intentional cutouts. It feels real good to have progress that is not measured in wires and pipes.
We had a doctor's appointment today. Heard the heartbeat and had some blood work. Afterward, Elisabeth took me out for pregnant lady shopping and dinner! So wonderful.
Mekong Parking Lot
Pretty nice sunset to wrap up a work week and a(nother) good dinner.
Richmond National Battlefield Park
I treated myself to a bike ride and a picnic out here. I could probably handle every Saturday morning being like this.
