yesterday i found out one of my close friends is having a BOY... (he will be her second child, her first is a girl so they are thrilled to have a boy this time!).
yesterday AF arrived. on to cycle #20.
yesterday i baked a pumpkin cheesecake for thanksgiving. it turned out fabulous! if anyone wants the recipe let me know!
last night i had a very vivid dream about my uncle (the one who died out of the blue a little over a month ago). in my dream i knew that he was dead but every so often i would get a glimpse of him spying on me/keeping an eye on me. finally i was certain that i saw him so i tried to chase out after him to catch him and he kept running ahead but he'd turn to look at me and smile and sort of laugh (my uncle was notorious for being a bit of a prankster and for his jolly laugh). i woke up with a heartache and i've been weepy all day whenever i think about it. i guess i still can't believe he's gone.
this morning i found out that my SIL had her baby this morning! at 6am, to be precise! he weighs 4 kilos . his name is alexander (alex for short).
i talked to my mom on skype today and she told me that my cousin's girlfriend is pregnant. i'm actually happy for them and i have no qualms seeing that they are both responsible and have steady jobs (and i know that they'll be good parents).
today i'm baking a 1st birthday cake for one of my closest friend's daughter (arianna). i looked online to try to find a healthy, baby-friendly cake. i found a banana cake recipe that sounded interesting. it called only for mashed banana, butter, water, flour, baking soda & powder & cinnamon. i tried a little spoonful of the batter and YUCK! i added a couple of spoonfuls of sugar (really not even 1/2 as much as a normal recipe) because it was really not good as it was. maybe a baby doesn't know better? after the sugar it tasted at least passable.
tomorrow we're going to pick up our new car and then in the evening we are going to babysit arianna and her brother gianmarco.
thursday will be a VERY busy day because arianna is having her 1st birthday party around lunchtime and then that evening we're having a thanksgiving feast with my other girlfriends and +1s.
phew! i can't wait until friday and things slow down again a bit!
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!
