Waiting for IVF.
(I know I've been saying that for a year!)
There were some scheduling delays (luckily nothing more - simply scheduling with the office). But it means we now must start over this phase of the process. You know, at a certain point, you kind of think, "Ok, we're there. What else can possibly go wrong." ha! Well, something has gone wrong nearly every time along this journey. I guess that's just the way it goes.
Unfortunately, because of a booked trip, we won't know the results of all this until June now. JUNE! I can't believe it. It just seems so, so far away. Sorry for the ongoing saga.
Anyway, carrying forward. Trying to breathe in spring.
And...collecting some great things to share with you. :) I hope you enjoy them:
-I found the BEST eggs I've ever had at the Queens County Farm (the longest running farm in New York State!) It's on the way to my doctor's office on Long Island so my new favorite thing is stopping there for eggs... (I don't think I ever want to eat a store bought egg again.) These eggs come from 7 heritage breeds and they're just so beautiful!! (note: they only sell eggs Wed.-Sun, 12-5 pm.) My favorite way to eat an egg these days is pan fried with olive oil and salt & pepper.
-I want to see this art installation: Murals on the Bowery (after hours only! The art is on the steel roller shutters on the fronts of the supply shops.)
-I discovered my new favorite 'French Provencal' olives from Sahadi's on Atlantic Avenue (the best ever Middle Eastern market in Brooklyn.) Also, get the marcona almonds in bulk. The freshly made hummus (so fluffy). The freshly ground peanut or almond butter. And the bitter dark chocolate chips (darker than semi-sweet - also dairy free). What do you love buying there?
-The couple married for 83 years said good-bye. This just makes my heart swell. They have been an inspiration to the world!
-Sometimes, riders find a cabby worth praising (beautiful.)
-An adorable post about supplies needed for spring foraging! :) (The blooms have burst. It's seriously time to get some shears. I found these, made by a company that's been making garden tools since the '40s.)
-Some of the best birthday invitations I've ever seen, from a designer in Brooklyn. (You can buy them on Paperless Post!)
-My friend, Kelsey, has her own cooking show!! She just started filming her 5th season (which is amazing) and she decided to blog about the behind-the-scenes of having a cooking show. SO exciting and fascinating to read.
-How to Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking (the silliest tip in this I think can actually be very effective.)
-And...16 Ways I Blew My Marriage (this post is heart felt and so good. 3,481 comments!)
Hoping you all have a very, very good weekend.
The report on West Virginia will be coming next week.
At this moment Danny and I are in Pennsylvania so far. Visiting Fallingwater today! I'm so excited!!
(I'll share some photos on Twitter.)
