One More Cup of Coffee (for the road)

Both girls are sleeping, I have this nice mug of coffee, I'm listening to Folk Alley (OH MY GOSH IT'S ERIC BOGLE PLAYING THE BAND PLAYED WALTZING MATILDA!) and thought it'd be a nice time for a quick blog post. Martin just put some meat on the grill and I made potato salad to keep in the fridge for the weekend.

This morning the girls and I took a nice long walk with Laura and Mary Grace! I love it that Mary Grace and Greta are only about twenty-four hours apart in age. Anja has decided that the stroller is not nearly as cool as the pack-pack, so she's been riding on my back in the Ergo for the past two days. Not just for our walks.... I mean, she pretty much is on my back all day long. The nice thing about it is that I can still get stuff done while she's on my back (unlike when Greta is on my front) but the bad thing is that it's very hard to bend down to pick something up when you have a 25 pound body on your back... especially if what you're picking up is a 16 pound body. But it's still kind of a nice feeling to have Anja all cuddled up there against my back. And it doesn't matter at all for walks either, since Greta seems to fit well in the stroller.

Tomorrow I want to wake up early and go to the Farmers Market while it's still cool and while Gerry still has coffee at his booth. We have made our Farmers Market shopping list for the week, deciding that we're going to try to get all our produce there. Then later in the day, whatever we can't find there and the rest of our list that is not food we'll get at Target.

Anja and Greta are such good pals. Greta is so laid back that Anja can pretty much do whatever she wants to her and Greta just smiles and laughs. Yesterday I gave both girls a bath at the same time, but Anja quickly decided that Greta's bath was MUCH more interesting because Greta was kicking ALL the water out of her tub! It was very funny, but Anja thought it was absolutely hysterical.

Okay, so I guess my life is REALLY unexciting.

We had a grea time walking with all you girls! I like how close together they are too. It's fun to watch how different they are but at the same time what they have in common.

I didn't know Gerry spelled his name that way.
