Waiting!

Yes, we are in the stage of waiting. The time seems to have slowed down and to slow it even further down I hurt myself this week. Wohooo! My chiros comment on it: Good job! When I don’t hurt myself I’m knitting or eating snacks…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe week started out all ok and Ecky and I enjoyed the sunshine and went to the fjord. When we came back on Tuesday I didn’t really think about my kind of loose bones due to all those preggers hormones and pulled at the heavy front door to open it. Usually we only have to push a button and it opens by itself, but unfortunately it was broken for a few days. Well, I pulled that well that I actually managed to strain a muscle in my butt. So, after we’d come up I suddenly couldn’t walk anymore and I was just in f****ing pain.

M helped me then to prepare dinner a potato salmon quiche

On the way back the pain got worse and I decided to visit my chiro spontaneously. She did a very good job but then I sat way too long in the car and in the end the pain was back and so bad that M came home and worked from home for the last hours of his work day. He took over all the tasks I’d planned to do: walking Ecky, groceries and bringing the car to the workshop. In between I got a kiss and he renewed my best friend. He’s gorgeous, isn’t he?!

You want to get to know my best friend? – Voilà: my green pea ice pack

Right now, I’m in a much better condition. 🙂

Ecky and I noticed that fall has come to Trondheim. We spotted the first colored leaves.

Lexie and Ecky played together before both fell asleep at their favorite places: Lexie in Eckys chair and Ecky on his rug in front of the terrace door. Yesterday  I and her boyfriend came over for a round of grilled cheese sandwiches and a piece of cake. M is the grilled cheese sandwich master but I’d prepared a coconut apple cake. Originally it the recipe for a Jewish apple cake but I pimped it up by adding some toasted coconut which I’d cracked and shredded earlier. 8)

He’s so sweet and when he talks you can get muscle spasms in your belly because she speaks English with him but he answers in Norwegian. 😀

Ecky’s still enjoying having me at home. He takes a lot of naps on my belly or just relaxes where ever he drops down

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI finished two other projects: good buns and a wrapping jacket for munchkin

The jacket has in addition to the original instruction a tiny pocket cause all boys need pockets… 😉

But otherwise I went along the recipe. It’s from Cook’s Illustrated and to find in the newest volume. We ate them with a raspberry blueberry sauce.
