7dp5dt: Pom

Dear readers, last night I had acupuncture (she said my pulses were good) and fell asleep on the couch after gorging myself on gluten-free pepperoni and mushroom pizza from an amazing pizzeria near the acu appointment. I did not take the time to practice my guitar (I'll post about that tomorrow).

The purpose of this post is to share with you a piece of art that has special meaning to me. Here it is.

This is a watercolor by my very talented mother. She's lives up in Oregon, but visits often. She's heading down for 2 months in Mexico. I'll miss being able to call her every day like I currently do. Thank goodness for Skype.

Four sleeps until beta day!

Gorgeous art! She is very talented and I notice that one pom is big and one is smaller. Like your mom and you? Like you and some snuggly embies? Does your mom have a site where she sells her art or does she do commissions? I've been thinking for a long time what to do in my dining room. :-) Big hugs!

Hi! I like the title of your blog - I guess we all have those positive and negative feelings all mixed up... well life is a muddle and a mess and I guess we will figure it all out...
Lovely paining. And good for you for eating gluten free. Just came from the supermarket where my DH freeked out when he heard how much my gluten free sugar free etc pancake mix cost! Oh well... will make eggs instead!
Good to meet you!

What a beautiful picture. Your mom is very talented. I'm sure you have discussed this before but I can't remember...why are you not testing before beta? I would be going crazy waiting for next week.

LOVE the colors of your Mom's painting. You can see it and think of her often. My Mom spent a couple of months in Mexico back in the 60s. She loved it.

Thanks for all your support, Jem. I left you an award on my blog!

That painting is fantastic. And so very apropos for your journey :) Symbol of fertility and all. I'm sorry you won't get to Skype with her very often :( But imagine the amazing art that is going to come out of that journey! Perhaps some for your baby's room!
