very winter

ok, so the third time wasn't the charm. if it had been, I would have had an embryo made almost completely of persimmons -- my last few weeks in Jerusalem, I must have eaten about 30 persimmons, which were a total delight. I'm now back home in Providence, where the fruit selection does not include guava, dragonfruit, or persimmons, but where my apartment does have central heating, so I'll go with that for now.
On the reproductive front, IUI #5 was this past Tuesday, and I'm now in the (what feels like a 5-month-long) two-week-wait. New developments this time: a friend came with me (I decided that yes, I'd faced the being a single parent thing, and it would be nice to have her company), and also I am now doing a little hormonal support. :) 

I had a little fantasy that I'd be going on lots of wintry hikes when I got back here, but frankly, it's been more cold than inspiring; combined with a serious Winter Cold, I'm basically indoors. Hiking will have to commence once the temperature thaws a bit. In the meantime, I've decided that I will watch all of Sex and the City -- no, I'd never seen ANY episode before this week -- as my winter entertainment. So far: one season down, 5 to go.
