Ayla shelling peas-waiting for Baby Henry in Portland, Oregon
Dearest Readers,
This is my beautiful daughter, Ayla in her Portland home shelling peas from her garden, waiting for the birth of dear baby Henry, her first child. He's overdue, and we're finding things to do to curb our anticipation.

I arrived Friday, two days ago, flying over the Appalachians, the Great Plains, the Rockies, the high desert, the Cascades, and glorious Mt. Hood gleaming below my airplane window.

Someplace West with a mix of mountains, desert and farmland
So we are reading, eating, coffee shop and movie-going, assembling baby paraphernalia, and yesterday, saturday, we climbed Mt. Tabor–a hill overlooking Portland with a steep path to the top. Come on Henry we're trying to nudge you along!
