My Daybook, Entry #9

Looks like clicking "publish" is important after all! "Save" will put it away for later - lucky for me!!

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, Nov 16, 2009...

Outside my window... a cold start today (38 degrees!!), but is warmed up nicely to 60 degrees and beautiful sunshine!!

I am thinking... that a November baby would be just as lovely as a December baby!!

I am thankful for... claw type hair clips. Some days, I just have to twist all this hair up and get it out of the way!

From the learning rooms... Week 13 in our plans and a break for "Along the Alphabet Path" with Blossom. She is losing enthusiasm, so we will bench it until we regain all that enthusiasm!!

From the kitchen...
Monday: Elk Roast, Spaghetti Squash, Peas, Salad
Tuesday: I think that
Wednesday: each day will
Thursday: be a challenge
Friday: for deciding what
Saturday: to make to eat.
Sunday: We will wing it!!

I am wearing... Jeans and a sweater.

I am creating... a BIG baby belly.

I am going... to try to take it easy. That is so much easier said than done.

I am reading... A few handouts from the OB office... what to pack to take to the hospital, how to spot signs of postpartum depression, ever-enlightening! Kind of done this a handful of times!

I am hoping... That you will all pray for a safe and healthy delivery of baby.

I am hearing... Not a whole lot... with the weather so nice, the kids are busy outside right now!

Around the house... It's beginning to look a lot like... a birthday - a new one, one that will bring us a new family member to hug and squeeze!!

One of my favorite things... HOT HOT HOT Showers.

A few plans for the rest of the week... tomorrow, we'll take that stray cat of Blossom's to the vet's office downtown to eliminate the possibility of kittens showing up on our doorstep, Geemah has bumped up her arrival date and will fly in on Wednesday afternoon, Bud has a Blue Knight Boy's Club meeting on Wednesday night, An appointment at the maternal-fetal specialist on Thursday...

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...


I think that we need to have a few photography lessons for Bud...
regarding holding the camera STILL when taking a picture!!

To read more daybooks or to join in the fun, head over to Peggy's.


  1. Keep us up to date about the baby!! We are praying!!!

  2. Love the pic...think it turned out the way Bud wanted?? I'll be praying for a safe delivery of your new family member! Try to take it easy (or at least easier) it may be your last chance for a while *winks* Have a great week!

  3. We are praying for our newest little grandchilds safe delivery into the world. Our love to you and all! Take it easy!! Wish we could be there to hug in person. Grandma and pa

  6. Anonymous,
    You kind of freak me out.

  7. Elk funny that we had that on Monday, too :)

    Praying for you and your wee one....any day now.


  8. Thinking about you! Keeping you and the family in our thoughts and prayers as you prepare for the arrival of your little one. We can't wait to meet him or her and love up that baby! WOW! Really we can't believe how quickly time has flown by! It seems like just a few weeks ago we were camping out in Yellowstone and now your packing your bags for the hospital!

    P.S. I got the sweetest letter in the mail yesterday and it just made my WHOLE day! Love, hugs, and kisses to the kids and tell Branch "thank you" and I loved her letter.
