Art That Inspires
We had a full day of sunshine and warm weather yesterday, though so I can't be mad about the rain today. Our backyard is already starting to green up and the first bulb flowers are blooming in bunches left and right. The woman who owned this house before our landlords put a lot of bulbs in seemingly random places throughout our huge mess of a..., I mean, lovely shaded and snake filled, I mean, spacious and overgrown, I mean...full of potential backyard. It's like a mine field of daffodils, Iris, and tulips each spring. It means we usually have fresh flowers in our house!
The most strange thing about this year is that certain spring smells, sights, and sounds all combine in ways that trigger the feeling of the first trimester nausea that i had last year with Ruby. So much so that I have taken a pregnancy test! It was negative, of course, and there aren't ANY other usual signs so I'm pretty sure it's just one of those things. I think it's just like how the smell of puffy paint reminds me of Brownie crafts and Alanis Morissette will always take me back to freshman year of high school. Isn't it ironic, don't ya think?
I'm hoping the nausea triggers will be replaced with new sight and smell memories so that I don't have to go through the worst part of pregnancy without even being pregnant! Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
The weekend is coming! The weekend is coming!
