39 weeks

Still pregnant and enjoying maternity leave while I patiently wait. Have experienced some contractions (both Braxton Hicks and real ones) and anticipate going to the hospital at any time.

Lately I have been…

reading Haruki Murakami books: South of the Border, West of the Sun and Sputnik Sweetheart.

playing sudoku (and finishing the whole book of puzzles).

drinking gen mai cha and eating red bean buns at the Imperial Tea Court.

buying rainboots and walking around in the light rains that we’ve had.

eating delicious fruit and cheese plates made my maiki.

making almost every meal at home, including baking these muffins (now dubbed labor muffins!).

watching favorite movies: Garden State and Sense & Sensibility.

lighting candles and staying warm in our cozy cottage.
