A big, big yard!

Well, ok it's not that big. But it is so nice to have a defined perimeter! KD and friends worked all weekend to install our fenceposts. Finally! Somehow, now that I know where the edge of my yard is, it seems bigger. Pardon the poor quality picture...I took it just now through the office window, because I didn't want to go outside. And yes, our lawn needs watering. It's been so ridiculously dry and windy here. If you squint, you may be able to see my little pile of bricks next to the garage, inside my raised bed frame that I haven't filled with dirt yet. My mom, JK and I went on a little road trip to pick them up from a guy who offered them to me for free. I love the look of old bricks. These are from a 1932 chimney, and will end up as garden edging, once I knock the mortar off.

A friend said to me at church today: "So your baby is due any day now?" Not quite. I still have three months to go! But I think I look almost as huge as I feel. I should take a new belly picture.
