Cold as Ice

It is really bone-chillingly cold out today. Minus ten wind chills. The kind of cold that makes your skin hurt after just a few minutes. Fortunately, I watched the weather report and dressed accordingly. I have thus far survived the frosty weather thanks to a nice warm scarf that my Mom crafted for me, and a pair of really cool gloves that are heated using ones own breath (also from my parents). I'm lucky to have wise Wisconsin parents who love me and do not wish to see me become a Dave-cicle.

Even armored as I am against the cold, I think I'm going to hold off on the lunchtime errands that I was planning to run today. They can wait a few days until things warm up a little. The Book Mines are warm and cozy. Well, warm anyway.

I've been working a lot lately. Good work, interesting work, but still work. Trying to get a lot of things wrapped up before the baby comes and dominates our lives.

Just 4 weeks until our "due date", so realistically Alex could decide he's ready to make his debut at any moment. He hasn't shown any signs of wanting to do that yet, but you never know! Still much to do to prepare, but we're getting there, and most of the important pieces are in place.

The cats seem a little weirded out by this whole pregnancy thing. They know something is going on, they just can't figure out what. Last night, Kali jumped up on the bed and crawled under the covers with us. He's never done that before. He just snuggled up next to Liz's belly and purred. It was very cute.
