Compared to last weekend, this one was pretty quiet. Friday night we stayed in and took it easy and watched Gilmore Girls (we've recently started over with Season 1). On Saturday, we went into DC, where I was serving as a "pregnancy model" for a massage class. Tough work, but somebody had to do it! We followed that up with lunch at one of our very favorite restaurants, the Cactus Cantina, then headed back home. I've gotten to the point where being out and about for very long just exhausts me, so I was falling asleep on the couch by about 7pm. We did, however, make up a batch of Tammy's Vanilla Pudding (we melted chocolate into half so we had some chocolate pudding as well), and boy, was that delicious and well worth the effort! Like many other things, it falls into the category of "why did people ever stop making this from scratch?" Easy, delicious, and relatively healthy as far as desserts go.
Today, we got up decently early and took a nice morning walk in Reston. Our weather was just perfect today--70's with low humidity, and we were excited to see on our walk, among other things, a heron and a bunch of adorable baby turtles down at Lake Anne.
We came home from that, opened up all the windows, and worked on a few last things as far as getting ourselves settled in the new apartment--including Freecycling back some of the 100 jars we'd washed out back in February. We took a long hard look at the situation and realized that a) we don't have a garden and likely won't until we no longer live in an apartment, thereby leaving us with little to can; b) if we did find the time and means to can, half of those jars would likely be enough; c) IF we decided we needed to someday, replacing the jars wouldn't really cost us that much, especially compared to the inconvenience of storing them and moving them until that day came.
Tonight, we went for a swim at the outdoor pool. I'm looking so pregnant now that about anytime we go out in public, somebody comments on it and says "Normally I wouldn't presume, but in your case it's so obvious..."
