i arrived home yesterday. gone are the 50 degree-ish days of when i left two weeks ago. but really, no complaints. and minutes after walking in the door i heard omar say these beautiful words – “while doing a major tree trimming job on the tree that is next to our fence, the neighbors found four dead iguanas in the branches.” music to my ears, people. the cold and windy weather dries out my skin but kills iguanas. i’ll take it.
omar also came back from a visit to his parents’ house with a bag full of little bananas that got tricked by the cold into ripening too soon. cute little things that made for excellent caramelized bananas this afternoon. full sized bananas are often a bit much for me, but these little guys? perfect.
as i was unpacking suitcases it was a bit sad to put the sweaters in the back of the closet. i like to think cold weather clothes are more flattering than summer clothes. times that by 100 when you’re pregnant.
