Gardening and Jewelry

10 Jun

This week has been a little rough.  I haven’t been feeling very well.  I don’t know what it is about this week, but all of a sudden, my belly is feeling very large.  I know, I know.  I still have a long way to go.  A lot of growing to do.  A lot bigger belly to endure.  If I’m not sitting straight up, I feel like I can’t breathe and like everything inside is being smooshed together.  I don’t mean to be complaining… It’s just that it happened all of a sudden.  I’m sure I’ll get used to it though.

Baby girl has been kicking up a storm.  In fact, today she woke me up at 6:30 by kicking the crap out of me.  No, not literally.  But she kicked me hard enough to wake me from a nice sleep.

While we were at the beach a couple weeks ago, my mom and I went to some antique stores.  I found this great little gem – an antique cabochon which I just couldn’t leave without.  It was actually a pretty great bargain, and has a clip for a chain and a pin finding on the back as well.  Today I took a trip to Ornamentea here in Raleigh to find a chain and a closure to make it into a necklace.  The super helpful staff there helped me find some chain that was perfect and a toggle closure to finish it off.  Here’s what I ended up with:

I happen to love it and I can’t wait to wear it!

I spent some time this morning working on a new flower bed.  If you know us, you probably know that the homeowners association in our neighborhood is just SLIGHTLY anal, and send letters and fines for no good reason.  Their favorite target is our grass.  So I’m putting a flower bed across the entire front of our yard so they can’t see our grass as well.  The bed is partially in rebellion against them, but also it’s the only place in the whole yard that gets full sun all day, so I’m kind of excited to be able to plant things that are supposed to get full sun… since I can’t put them anywhere else.  Right now, I have 3 gardenia bushes to plant up there.  I think I was out there for about an hour this morning, and ended up completely exhausted.  I can’t wait to see it finished though.

My cardiologist appointment is Friday afternoon.  Joel’s going to go with me, to help me remember to ask questions that I would surely forget.  I’m finding myself a bit less freaked out now, but more just curious what in the heck is going on.  I did use my sister’s stethoscope to listen to my heart this weekend when I went home… and even my untrained ears were able to hear some sort of skipped or added beat.  I don’t know enough about the different heart sounds to be able to differentiate, so I’m interested to hear what the cardiologist has to say.

Ah, I was thinking the other day that this blog has been a lot more lullabies than law school so far.  You might be wondering why that is.  It would be because law school hasn’t exactly started yet.  Joel will start classes in August, so I’m sure I’ll have much more to write on that subject once the classes start.  However, the other day at the Targets, we did buy some school supplies for him.  I feel like I’m shopping for a kindergartner when I say “school supplies,” but really, what else can you call notebooks and pens and note cards?

I never did make it to get that pedicure the other day.  I painted my own toenails today, and I’m pretty sure that’s the last time I’ll be doing that for a while.  It was really hard to bend over and I could barely reach my toes.  I guess that means I’ll have to get someone else to do it from now on.  Darn it.  😉  Anyone want to join me in a couple weeks?

    I will gladly join you. Either A) Come to Wilmington or B) Find a room for me to organize so I have a good excuse (not that I need one) to come hang out with you in Raleigh!
