Here is Andrea with our 2nd peach harvest of the year bringing our total peach count to 5. That's right, 5 peaches and we are considering retiring after our fruitful bounty!

We love having people over to the House. Yesterday we had a poker party and tonight Harold and Lauren came over with some fabulous pasta sauce to watch the Redsox game. (Harold was watching the Yankees Game)

Here are Gabe and Harold and Lauren in the downstairs. You can see all of Gabe's Pool trophies behind the pool table. The foozeball room is off to the right and my office is also on this floor along with the laundry room.

I had a scary fall at the poker game in the kitchen. Literally, one moment I was standing and the next I was landing on the floor. I think that the problem was that Gabe had mopped the kitchen floor so it didn't have the sheen of stickiness I'm used to having! This just proves that cleaning can be dangerous. I keep telling Gabe that but he doesn't believe me.

Here we are in front of our finished trees! The Aspen Grove came out amazing!

It was a long week because I had to go back to work...I can't believe the summer is over. So far lots of meetings, but students come back on Tuesday.

One of the reasons why I love living in Colorado!

Here is prego with the little man in the new baby room.

Here is a picture of our lovely home, from the back yard. We are enjoying it very much and look forward to raising our family here.

Mom and Dad are finally home, and just in time to put me to bed!

Please don't let me go Aunt Andrea! More fun at the park while watching Shilah.

The wheels on the bus go round and round...We watched Shilah while Shanti and Aimee had some dinner to themselves.

After having lunch, I went to visit my grandmother who has just turned 95! This is a terrible picture. I asked the woman who runs the nursing home to take one and she hurridly shot a picture , looked at it, and said, "That's a good one." I stupidly didn't check it until back in Bloomington! Anyway, you can vaguely see me and Grandma. She knew me right away, which I think is pretty good for 95! And then we had a nice chat.

That was I am on a misson to find a really good present for Gabe!

I had lunch with my Aunt Sue and Uncle Don in Salem yesterday! They are off to visit my cousin Jeff and help him move into a new apartment. Here they are on the square.

Here are me and Margaret. She has just woken up from a nap and I am reading a book on Mindfulness. It is nice to practice my "hold the baby and read at the same time" technique! She is a very good baby though.

Here are Ebee and Katy with Katy's new baby Margaret. We are Ginney Richey's house getting ready to enjoy an evening swim in the pool. I've had the most wonderful day today, starting with breakfast at the Villege Deli, a walk around the square, and then a three hour nap. It's like a wonderful retreat designed for pregnant people! I am so glad I am ending my summer with this wonderful trip, but I miss Gabe terribly.

This is Ebee and David at their wonderful apartment in Bloomington! They have a beautiful open living room with a sky light and many graceful decorations. Plus lots and lots of books! They are the best and most thoughtful hosts suppling me with my favorite foods and books I should read placed next to my bed. I am being very spoiled and am having a great time...but I miss my Gabe.

Here I am at the airport getting ready to leave for my trip to Indiana. I'm going to be seeing my wonderful friends Elizabeth, Katy, and Ursi from elementary school and middle school. It is the first time in five years that we've seen each other without being at somebody's wedding! Since mine was the last wedding , I am very grateful to be done with that stress. The trip should be fun, but I already miss Gabe.

Outside work on my lunch break last week.

We are getting ready for the coming of our little one. We are making his room a happy, joyful place and we start with paint!
