lately

July has always been my favorite month of the year. Probably because its my birthday month but also warm sun and fresh fruit! I am enjoying the few warm days that Berkeley has and savoring them. We hardly ever say, “Wow its so hot today.” I so wish that there was a beach closer to home so I could go flop down in the sand tomorrow (and I could get comfortable in this sand, since I am seven months pregnant) and bathe in the sunlight.

Loving lots and lots of fresh fruit! Mangos, apricots, pluots, plums, peaches, blueberries, cantaloupe and bananas mostly. Pesky plastic packaging keeps me from buying lots of strawberries and such. Love cherries too when I remember to bring a bag. maiki brings pyrex containers to the market to fill with blueberries. He is so smart.

Found cute red shoes that just scream summer. They may or may not be comfortable but affordable enough to take the risk.

Visiting friends in Santa Cruz next weekend. I love that place! No Boardwalk for me this time. I just want to eat a caramel apple from the pier and walk along listening to the sea lions with my love. Just walking along Pacific makes me happy.

Receiving packages almost daily to the cottage. Jason gave us a gift certificate to Amazon and the things that I picked out for baby came in three shipments. I also got a maternity/nursing/boppy like pillow, an Uppercase magazine (!), Sakura Bloom sling, and soon to be arriving, striped towels. Yay for fun mail!
