sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


No, the sweater is not finished yet. I keep stitching and stitching, but it seems never ending. I am halfway through the second sleeve now, though.

But, I got our taxes done. Can’t file yet, because one of the forms we need is not yet released in its final electronic incarnation. Suffice it to say: good news.

And finally, I’m in labor. Oh, don’t expect an announcement for quite awhile. Most would call this false labor. But can you really call it false labor when you start “true labor” over halfway there? I don’t think so either. So we can call it pre-labor. We can call it “warm ups”. We can call it “crampy back-ache for 3 weeks”. But we *can not* call it false labor.

Accordingly, I got all the birthing stuff washed up yesterday, after consulting with the midwife. The clothes are washed, folded and put away. The cute little dipes are in the dryer. And all that’s left to do is the boring stuff. Cleaning. I was really hoping to parcel out those fun jobs a little more, but………well, I would have been upset to have this kick over into active labor when I was unprepared, given the fact that I could have gotten ready.

So, I guess that’s about all I have to say this morning. Hope to show you a sweater soon.
