I just saw that I've made 100 posts (-: Fancy that. Good for me (-:
Tuesday morning. Orange juice, green tea and french toast. Busy, then calm. Chatter, quiet, then birdsong. Tash is sleeping still.
I do not know what is on our agenda for today, but I do know I am grateful for the momentary peace of this bright morning as I sit at the ktchen table, breakfast finished, sunbeams streaming in and dancing about on the jolly spring-coloured tablecloth.
The past five days have been filled with activity. Much in the way of sightseeing. The first morning Tash awoke here, we caught a taxi to the labour and delivery area of the hospital, Me panicked at having had less movement from the baby since the day prior. Once I was hooked up to a fetal heart monitor he started bopping around and we knew all was fine. I, apparently, am more on edge than I thought in this pregnancy,, but it's good to know. Now I can work on letting go of some of my prior traumas. The doctor came in and did an ultrasound and baby one had his little fist up, poised in a 'thumbs up' and she was quick, She took the picture (-:
The rest of our day was spent zipping in and out of some lovely small shops and chatting, the way our visit was meant to be.
The next day we again did some shop perusing, stopping for lunch at a nearby cafe for salads and water,, then strolled up to Isabella's school for her hip hop presentation.
On Saturday Jason, Isabella and I took Tash to Napa Valley to do some wine tasting (no, I did not partake )-: )) and she loved it. We visited a bunch of different wineries and took some really beautiful pictures. Sunday was spent driving along route one until we found a great beach to set up for a picnic. The wind was unbelievable and so we sat in a small wind-free area at the base of the cliff and relaxed while Jason walked along the beach looking for treasures. We visited the pigeon point lighthouse next, and then one more beach where we hung out in a cave partially enclosed with large pieces of driftwood. Fun (-:
Monday, being a school holiday, was spent first at Muir woods, then at an absolutely breathtaking oceanside spot we found when we pulled off to take some pictures. Traveling down the narrow pathway, we discovered a perfect picnic area - soft grass - and we stayed there for a while, taking photos, munching bagettes with havarti cheese and being sun warmed and windblown..Pictures of all our travels are coming soon (-:
Now I find myself ready to hop in the shower and get ready for another day of fun sisterly adventures. I hope your day is filled with happiness and beauty as well..(-:
