Real and fake Fridays

Yesterday was kind of my Friday. I walked around in the nice spring weather, chilled and then spent the evening with my favorite married couple and their baby, which is my new best friend and the cutest kid I know. In my own completely objective opinion… It was such a nice evening. We had steak and drank strange kinds of beer (I like beer-tasting!), ate cheesecake and played with the baby. Beer and baby might sound as a strange mix but I assure you, the nursing mother only had a few sips…
It’s so funny that when you’re around a baby then nothing is as great as getting a smile from the baby. And I will do all sorts of silly things to make him laugh. And I love it when he does.

But the real Friday, today that is, was a day of staring at my computer, searching databases and being generally frustrated. Doing research for an essay is, well, not fun.

Hey, I took my bike out today for the first time this year! I’m pretty confident that there will be no more snow this winter.
Well, back to the databases…
(Another crazy friday night at my house – hah)

Here I am

Hello world!

My internet connection died on my a week ago. And the procrastinator and the social phobic that I am, I didn’t do anything about it. Until yesterday. It turned out to be very simple, to fix this thing, so here I am again.
I am in a strange mood today.
Melons
Gulliver’s travels
strangers’ blogs
Some more Gulliver
And a phonecall from my friend Anna. She’s a mommy now. I find that so strange. So strange that I haven’t called her since she had the baby 8 days ago. I’m weird. I was actually surprised when I talked to her on the phone because she sounded just like the Anna I have known for so many years. Somehow I think I expected her to be a totally different person, now that she’s a mother.
I’m going to visit them tonight. The family of three. I hope the baby boy will like me…

Off I go

I’m going out of town, to visit my family and friends at my hometown. Can’t wait.
I’m a bit overwhelmed these days by the workload in school. But I think I’ve managed to convince myself that I can do it. There’s a lot to read and a few essays coming up. I just need to be a little more organized and efficient. And less internet hanging…
Visited my pregnant friend Anna yesterday who is due about NOW. She and her husband (yes, she has a husband – very grown-up!) have set up the babies’ crib and there are tiny newly washed clothes all over. Baby clothes are the cutest thing there is. So tiny, hard to imagine that anyone can fit into them!

I’m boring today, aren’t I?

I think I’m annoying

I visited my 35-weeks-pregnant friend Anna yesterday. This is how it was like:

How do you sleep?
Can you lie on your belly?
Do you have stretch-marks?
Where is the baby’s head?
Can I poke it?
Do you seriously have a baby inside of you?
Can you wear normal clothes?
Is that a special pregnancy shirt you have on? Why?
Don’t you find it strange that you’ll have milk coming out of your breasts in a few weeks? MILK?!
Is the baby kicking you right now?
What about now?

Poor sweet Anna… But she put up with her ignorant friend and answered all of my million questions. What can I say, I’m just fascinated by the fact that she has a human being inside of her. And it’s strange to see her body change so drastically.  I really think that women’s bodies are incredible.

Fall

Time is something I don’t understand. Suddenly it’s fall. Windy and rainy. And I have a cold – how very fall-ish – and it’s the last week of my summerjob. And my boss intends to make very good use of me this last week, she has 11 hour workdays lined up for me all week.
I’m knitting Baby Surprise Jacket these days. It has been a bit challenging, as Elizabeth Zimmermans instructions are not exactly detailed,  but not an impossible task. I’ve made good use of my friends google and youtube and Ravelry has been a great help too. I love all the knitting videos on youtube, I feel I could take on almost any knitting project because I’ve always been able to find some help on youtube. The biggest problem was finding a good color. The jacket is for my friends’ Anna and Jon’s baby and they don’t want to know the sex. I didn’t want to have it white so I ended up picking a lime green color. I hope they will like it.
I saw Anna this weekend and she’s getting bigger everytime I see her. I poked the baby but it didn’t seem to mind! I still find it crazy that she has a human being inside of her. But I can’t wait for it to come out, I’m going to be it’s favorite “aunt” 😉

August! And strange things

I just realised it’s August. Where did the summer go! And it’s dark outside, the bright summer nights are gone. Fortunately I like the dark, but still, It’s sad that there will be no more bright summer nights this year. The summer months seem to go faster by than other months. Very strange.

I visited my friend Anna tonight. She is 30 weeks pregnant now and suddenly has a big belly! I poked her belly and I could feel the baby’s head. I find it seriously freakish that she has a human being inside of her. Freakish I say! But I’m excited, she is the first of my friends to have a baby. And she even got married last year. I guess you’re grown up when your friends start doing all these things..
