[No he’s not here Sorry for the title!]
Did you know there is a full moon on my due date? And not just any ole full moon – a BLUE moon!
I am always looking for the meaning in things. I was hoping for a birthday of 8.26.12 because 2+6 is 8 and 2×6 is 12 and of course I heart the number 26. But that numerology has come and gone, so when Matt and I got to talking about the moon cycle over dinner tonight I thought: How cool would it be for him to come on his due date, 40 weeks on the nose, on a blue moon and on KERF’s 5 year anniversary!
And then Matt brought up the fact that we danced to “Moon River” at our wedding. And I just about lost it!
Of course he can come whenever he wants, and even if he comes a few days before or after, he’ll be our lunar babe : ) Maybe he’ll love Goodnight Moon or want to be an astronaut! Maybe he’ll dance to “Blue Moon” at his wedding…
We slacked on the meal plan this week and had to come up with something on the fly tonight. Requirement: tomatoes had to be involved.
The main course was a No Bull Burger served on a fluffy Virginia roll bun. Gosh this was a great burger!! Slice ‘O cheddar cheese wedged in there.
And on the side – a summer tomato salad!
I combined the following and tossed them together: ~2 cups of sliced baby garden tomatoes, 1 cup frozen/thawed lima beans, the corn from 1 ear cut off the cob and about 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese. The dressing was just 1 tbsp each of aged balsamic vinegar and olive oil plus a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Just realized now we forgot the basil!
Delicious on all accounts.
Oh, and our doctor’s appointment went well. Nothing really new to note – just waiting patiently! Doctor says babe is in a good position. I actually have a really big day tomorrow involving a film crew of 3 flying in from NYC for this upcoming freelance project and then it’s all downhill for the rest of the week, month, year!
