My Daybook, Entry #5

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, Oct 19, 2009...

Outside my window... 47 degrees, gray foggy skies, drizzly rain. PERFECT! Where's my hot cup o' cocoa!?!!

I am thinking... That I need to get pictures taken of some of our projects from last week - "B" week. We did some "b" things, but I only took a few pictures of things that would disappear quickly... FOOD!

I am thankful for... Pops' safe return home AND for him being around this week when my sanity levels start to tank!

From the learning rooms... Week 10 of our lesson plans and "C" Week. I am thinking Chocolate and Cake and Cookies and Cocoa and Clearly... junk! Why won't my mind FIRST go to carrots, celery, chicken and other things filled with nutrition!??

From the kitchen... I am going to start writing a weekly menu plan again. We'll see how that goes. Wish me luck in making an exciting week of meals!

I am wearing... A short-sleeved knit maternity dress - gray with multi-sized black raindrop shaped spots all over and a big thick and cozy pair of gray soft socks.

I am creating... Another maternity skirt! Probably should consider waiting and making a skirt for later being as I am down to 45 days and counting until my due date! I also plan to make a "belly band" or whatever it is supposed to be called. If you don't know... it is a band that you wear around your waist area to compensate for some of the shirts that are a bit on the shorter side... raise your arms up and show off baby's private hideaway - YIKES! I also need to figure something out for that li'l Blossom who wants to match up with Branch's new jammies! Awww shucks... I've also been searching online for a baby sling pattern that I would like to sew. I am waffling... I like the Asian style baby carrier very much and it looks like it would function well especially with a bit older baby. I also like the pouch style baby sling and think it would be especially nice for running errands. However, I also like the Moby style wrap. I've never seen anyone actually using a Moby wrap, though - other than finding people online who use and like it. Trying to decide which one, two or three to try to create!

I am going... To take some Tylenol... baby is not making this last trimester comfortable!

I am reading... Some new found (to me) crafty blogs!! FUN, FUN, FUN!

I am hoping... That we have a healthy week for all of us! Quit coughing, Bud!!

I am hearing... The excitement in Branch's voice as she tells Bud and Blossom about the surprise the tooth fairy left behind in exchange for her two teeth... two coins: a silver dollar and a gold dollar!

Around the house... I regret to inform you that the critter is back in the yard. It was gone for a while and is now back. I think that we need to find out what the laws are in town for discharging a weapon. Just sayin'.

One of my favorite things... Watching PBR (Professional Bull Riding) on VS. with Pops in the evening - it's fun to watch with Blossom, too! She LOVES the bulls!

A few plans for the rest of the week... The kids want to visit our local pumpkin patch and go for a ride on the tractor. We have the rescheduled Pumpkin Festival this weekend, too. Other things are up in the air... we'll just have to see how the week turns out!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
