Hello Again!  Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!  
Jai managed to find me some very nice flowers here in Bridgetown - no easy feat for around here!  And I found the little Pooh book at a recent Frenchy's trip.  It is the sweetest thing - full of little quotes about love and friendship from the stories.  
We had another full weekend of working on our room, trying to get it done so we can finally start living in it.  Jai worked on mudding and sanding all the new drywall, and I got the window seat built and the molding done.  

We are finally at the point where everything is primed and ready to be painted.  That should be the fun part, and I think we are both really looking forward to actually getting some paint on the walls this weekend.  I couldn't wait, and we did a little patch of the new colour, just to see.
Soon we really will have a room.  It's been weird now that Jai is working all day every day, and I am trying to get as many hours in as possible before I just can't work any more.  It seems like we never have any time to get anything done!  Everything's just a little bit harder in the winter, too.  You can't open the windows to clear the fumes, and it gets dark so early that there's no point in starting to paint at five o'clock.   Oh well, I guess that's part of what winter is for - getting us to slow down a little, and stop being in such a hurry.  Last night after we had finished doing the primer, we only had about an hour of daylight left, so we quit for the day, picked up a pizza, and played some Scrabble.  It was lovely, and easy to excuse, knowing that it was back to work on Monday morning.    

We'll probably have some long days this week, but not tonight.  Tonight is our first ever prenatal class!  Unfortunately we missed the first session (regular births) and are starting with the second session (problem births.)  Apparently there's a DVD we can borrow, in order to catch up.  So once again, we are woefully unprepared.  I figure this baby just better get used to it!  Hopefully they won't scare us too, too much - but I guess it's too late to back out now, anyway :)

And finally, a little taste of spring.  I bought this container of bulbs when Sarah and Erin and I went to Den Haan's Garden Centre for a winter pick-me-up, and they are finally starting to bloom!  It's so nice to see daffodils, and even nicer to smell them.  I talked to my Grandma out in Victoria last night, and the tulips are already starting to poke out of the ground there, so it's almost like a little taste of home :)

The room looks great, and so do the flowers. Have fun at prenatal classes!
