{p,h,f,r} waiting for baby edition

We planted this plum tree years ago, and it has grown beautifully, and the leaves are always so lush, but never has it produced a blossom, let alone a fruit - until now!

Unlike the plum, the cherry has always been a prolific bloomer. Every year, I manage to steal a cherry or two before the children or the birds get to them. So good!

After an unusually cold and occasionally snowy week, the weather has finally switched to spring! For how long, we know not, but we will enjoy it while we can.

My beloved has been refurbishing his tractor for what feels like months now. It's really only been a few weeks, though. He's painting here.

The crib is still empty, the suitcase still packed. Waiting, waiting, waiting for baby...

No particular story line or theme this week.  Baby is five days overdue, and who can think of anything in any sort of an organized way at a time like this?  I’d like to be finished, but then again, two of the children are being Confirmed on Sunday, and if I go into labor much later than today, I won’t get out of the hospital in time to be there.  Somehow, way back in September, April 9 (the due date) and April 17 (the Confirmation date) seemed sufficiently far apart… What was I thinking? 😉
