Sounds he moves to

I find it really funny that Maël moves when he hears the sound of my electric toothbrush. But he also moves at the sounds of :

  • Shower
  • Metro
  • Schubert
  • Whales
  • J-L’s voice
  • My cat. I don’t know how he knows the cat’s there but when the cat arrives, the baby moves. Can’t be the purring, my cat doesn,t purr loudly.
  • Piano
  • Vivaldi
  • Dentist’s apparatus

It is so reassuring to feel him move. Whenever I want to feel him I can nudge him through my right side coastal region or I can lie down on my left side and wait.

Yesterday, I listened to music while I painted for his room :

On another subject : today was the last appointement of phase 2 of my braces ! Next appointment will be the start of phase 3 and it will last about a year and a half. Wouhouuuuuuuuuuu!!

Planning a day off on Friday

At work, we have the possibility of taking personal days, sick days or even to pay for extra days off. Friday, I’m planning on taking a day off. I’m tired. I have reading to do for my class, cookies to bake, cookies to give.

I have an appointment for a haircut and electrolysis and I am going to bring the girls (and guy) a Christmas box of cookies. Maybe even some sucre à la crème. Since I found that place, I really enjoy going there. They are taking care of me (for a price) so I will take care of their sweet tooth. It’s a bit in advance because Christmas isn’t for a month but I’m sure I’m not the only one who likes to celebrate for weeks and weeks.

If I have enough cookies (I always have more than enough) I am planning on giving some to the café I love to say « Happy anniversary », they opened on December 5th. Then there is the gym. For the gym, I plan to have a box of sugary cookies and a box of clean cookies for those who eat clean. I am baking for a retirement party as well. For that party I’m planning on adding lavender shortbread and red velvet whoopie pies.

Besides that I’m planning on doing a painting for my Sister. I picked her name for the gift exchange at my parent’s. She has been wanting a painting of mine for a while and she can’t buy it. In my defense, I have to say that she has some paintings I have done because I gave them to her. Those that decorate my walls, I ask to be paid ! So I will paint her one. Just for her. I know it will make her happy. Of course, she will also have a box of cookies because she has a sweeter tooth now that she’s getting older and I want my nephew to know that his aunt bakes quite well. 🙂

Maybe I will go shopping because I lost only 5 pounds but my t-shirts are too big now. I have a pile of t-shirts I don’t dare wear in public anymore. People get a flash of bra, I always have to adjust the collar. I will ask my boyfriend to take my measurements so I can track my progress. The scale isn’t effective.

I’m going to be late for work…

Happy Moment

I went at Céramique Café last week to paint a ceramic bowl and a plate with C. and I went to get it today. I am very pleased with the result ! It looks like I wanted.

Plus, I have a 5$ rebate because they took a picture of the plate for their catalog.

And I sold one painting today, 30$. A friend had put a hold on it a while back and she gave me the money this morning.
