Two Things:

I have two things to share with you. I'm putting them both in one blog post in case I don't see you for a while. I feel I will have a baby very, very soon. At least, I'd better, because the pressure on my pelvis is much worse than it was before, so for my own comfort and sanity, she needs to come soon. Anyway, the two things are:

1.) Yesterday I picked and ate the season's first strawberry. Mmmmmm.... There's nothing quite like a sun-ripened strawberry right off the... strawberry plant. It was very tiny, but amazingly tasty.

The weird thing is, I didn't plant strawberries. I didn't plant anything outside this season. I'm pretty sure that plant has just been there all winter since last year and decided to do some more growing and give me some strawberries. Cool.

2.) I made this stuffed guitar for a friend's baby shower. She had mentioned that she hopes her daughter plays the guitar/is a musician, so I thought I'd get her started on the right foot.

It turned out pretty much exactly as I imagined it in my head (and believe me, that doesn't always happen).

I love it. I really wanted to keep it. But they need it more than I do.

Yay, Jessie!
The guitar is so very cute (and looks very well made).
I hope childbirth is fast and easy, and there are no problems.
Take care!

I hope your baby comes soon, too! I bet she will.

My grandmother has strawberry plants that come back every year. It's a little gift from nature. :)

The guitar is amazingly adorable! You should make things like that to sell. My friend and her husband would totally love one of those for their new daughter.
