It is entirely possible that I am the one who splurged at lunch AND dinner and ate three pears between the two meals, but they were so wonderful and I couldn't resist. It's wonderful to have an appetite again, and to want to eat, and to not think that all food looks terrible and will probably kill me. So, kitchen staff! I will be returning to you on Sunday!
I don't suppose that there is any baby furniture in storage? Bed, changing tables, rocking chairs are all very necessary. I suppose that the changing table isn't, but it would be nice. I still have several months, but there are others who will need all of this much sooner.
Are there baby clothes? Recieving blankets? Little booties and nappies?
I think that I am beginning to show. Dr. Gates told me that my little one is now about the size of a lemon! How wonderful to be able to have an idea of the size of one's baby while they're still baking.
I need to speak with the two of you. It's very important. And I threw a shoe this morning while looking for my other pair, and it's on top of my closet and I can't reach it, so I need one of you, too.
I'm returning, as I said above! And it will be good to be back; as wonderful as working with the children is, I've found that when I married, I truly did put that part of my life behind me. I miss joining you in the kitchen and creating food with you. I feel that we had a wonderful harvest this year -- I really like the word wonderful this evening! -- and I think that we also should celebrate that. I think that for many of us here in Mount Weather from different places and times, we all have a tradition of gathering around a table with family and friends once or twice a week. With that in mind, I would like to propose the idea of Sunday dinner.
Of course, we eat every Sunday, but Sunday dinner is different. We cook and eat foods that are reserved just for that day, or for special days, and they have a little extra cream, or an extra dessert, or just feature a meal that we don't eat often. What say you?
