Kimono III

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I am auditioning vintage kimono fabrics for a third in this series. This time, I have pulled fabrics with red and black. I’m having a little trouble with this one, but hope springs eternal.

M and M have gone home to their parents. They had a great time on their getaway, and Mr C and I enjoyed our time with the kids.It is Steph’s official birthday. Forty years ago, I was in labor when they discovered that Steph was in a posterior position. Back in the day, these things were not known until it was too late to do a C section. It was a long and difficult delivery. She went code blue shortly after the delivery, but was revived. I remember holding her in the hospital and counting all her fingers and toes, and I swear, she smiled at me as if to say, “Mom, it is going to be ok.” Here is a photo of her with Mark and Lisa on the occasion of her Baptism.

I have felt exhausted all day and it has been an effort to do what I have to do. I did manage two walks with Scooter in the chilly mist of Portland. But, tonight, it is official, I have a fever and I am giving in. I am sick. It is probably a sinus infection — it is that time of year. So, I am off to bed and hope to sleep it off.
