pocket surprise

so the weather here has suddenly gotten VERY cold and wintery -- frost on the ground in the morning, the smell of snow in the air in the afternoon... good weather for making a big pot of authentic dutch boerenkool and snuggling by the fireplace and wearing slippers.

so two days ago, i finally broke down and put on my winter coat to brave the chilly weather. i hadn't worn this coat of mine since i was 9 1/2 months pregnant with gracie last february.

and i stick my hands in my pockets, just to see what was in them, and you know what i found?

(no, not five dollars. though that would be funny.)

i found a candybar! ha!

i HAD to laugh to myself, because i remember those days so clearly -- just being HUNGRY all the time, and too lazy to make something to eat, so i just carried around candy bars and granola bars and pieces of fruit in my purse and all my pockets so that i'd always have something to nibble on to keep my energy up. i even had a little basket of granola bars on my night stand in my bedroom, so i wouldn't have to get out of bed in the middle of the night if i suddenly got the munchies!

so yeah. that was funny. i found a candy bar in my pocket from when i was preggers. ha!
