Bah Rain Again

So the weather is once again against us on our foray to the zoo… rainy, cold and overcast simply is not conducive to fun at the zoo. So the new plan is to go day by day and find one that works and then zip over there. In the mean time we are once again housebound and FAR from happy about it.

Braving the weather (Gavin red)

Last night I had a lovely bout of my usual issues with iron and anaemia. Part of my issue is that my body NEEDS iron but when I some how eat it or take a vitamin it does not break it down well. In fact, if I eat too much red meat or take an actual iron pill I tend to end up ill, usually throwing up. Last night Ken got me a special treat – a couple hamburgers from Harvey’s, definitely one of my favourite burger places. Then on top of that I took my usual prenatal vitamin (which thankfully this time round I am NOT having issues with – in previous pregnancies I have had huge amounts of issues keeping them down due to high iron content). So not a huge surprise that by 5:30 am I was up feeling absolutely miserable. Thankfully by the afternoon I felt relatively fine again but it is always a bit of a blow to wake up knowing you simply have to ride it out and hope the nausea and such passes.

This of course did NOT cancel our plan to head to the Fish store. No new fish yet but we did get new filters and bulbs to begin the cleaning of the tank process. When the hot weather first hit we did not turn down the temperature in the tank fast enough and now we are rather sure our snail is kaput AND our bulb burnt out… oh the timing!

Look FISH!

I stopped into Michaels and picked up a treat for me… metallic paper for scrapbooking. A little more expensive than the regular cardstock but fancy! I figured something different would be nice for Trinity’s book, since most everything I have done for her is in the baby/little girl colours…

Fancy paper

So other than that we have lived rather quietly. I was up late last night watching tv with Ken so got to sleep in which ate up basically all of my morning. The weather has certainly slowed our present school plans with the zoo trip postponed and it too cold to continue our gardening outside. As it is we are toying with the idea of bringing IN our potted garden for the night and then tomorrow night as well as the new plan is to spend an overnighter at Grandma’s to enjoy our weekend fully. I would be VERY upset if my tomato and strawberry plants froze!

Not much to report for a rainy Friday but I have high hopes for the weekend and upcoming week!
