39 weeks five days, and no baby in sight. No sign of any action, but when the baby is ready, so are we. Everything is now set up and ready to go. If I manage to remember, I'll try and get my hubby to take a belly shot and post it for your amusement. Lately, I've received more than one query as to whether I'm carrying twins, and the largest of my maternity shirts stopped reaching the top of my pants about three weeks ago. Yum! Unfortunately, the artsy fartsy photos didn't happen this time around - I completely ran out of time, and frankly, I just wasn't feeling up to it - maybe next time.

I'm presently too tired to take on anything major, so instead I'm taking up little tiny things at home. Currently, I'm trying to figure out how to make dhalpurie. It's a Trinidadian food. My mother never did learn how to make it, and as a result, I never learned. I did, however, inherit my grandmother's tawah, which is a flat, cast iron griddle thingy that I cook the dhalpurie on. Man, is it ever hard to get the texture right! The first batch came out more like the East Indian rotis that are available locally. To be honest, I think the recipe I'm currently using doesn't have enough fat in it. I found another recipe, which calls for a pound of butter (well, earth balance in my case), to four cups of flour. Ummm...methinks this is a bit too much fat! The problem is that anyone I know that actually makes dhalpurie lives far away, and generally cooks by eyeballing things (which I can totally understand because I do the same thing), which doesn't help me when I don't have a clue what I'm doing.

I also attempted to make ice cream with Almond milk in place of regular milk last night. It didn't turn out. I wonder where I went wrong?

There are many things that I wanted to rant and rave about a few days earlier, but somehow, I can't seem to get sufficiently irritated about anything to even write about it. I am apathetic to everything except those things that immediately affect me.

I am officially full term. This morning I am having my first cup of ninth month tea.

I don't think the baby is going to be here for a while though. My place is a mess, and I'm feeling like I usually do when the place is a mess - annoyed - and I'm taking care of things at snails pace, so clearly, the nesting instinct hasn't kicked in quite yet.
