Tomorrow I reach the 40 week mark. The last couple weeks of pregnancy always feel the longest. I’m finding this to be especially true with all the contractions that I’ve been getting. Everyone says to enjoy the last few days but its not that easy when you’re feeling extremely uncomfortable and have no energy. At least I can be comforted by the fact that we will have some exciting news to share sometime in the next two weeks.
Our house feels very small right now. With the basement in renovation and the huge birth tub sitting in our living room there isn’t much room for play. Thankfully my dear sister and MIL have been coming by to take the little ones out cross-country skiing and sledding.
I’m such a sucker for period dramas. Thanks to the suggestion of a couple people I started watching Downton Abbey a couple days ago. This TV series is right up my alley. A few other period dramas I’ve enjoyed are North and South, Pride and Prejudice and Wives and Daughters.
Tomorrow (February 25th) is Seedy Saturday. Once a year people in our city are invited to come together and talk about plant biodiversity, heritage gardening, organic gardening and seeds. There are usually seeds to buy or trade too. This event happens across Canada. Check out Seeds of Diversity to see if there is a Seedy Saturday happening near you.
German Pancakes are delicious and so easy to make. My friend introduced me to German pancakes a couple weeks ago. You can substitute 1 cup flour for 1/3 cup coconut flour. The pancake won’t puff up as much with coconut flour but it makes for a healthy and high fiber substitute.
