The Simple Woman's Daybook

I'm feeling the need to simplify, to pare down things in my life to only the bare necessities. This was brought to my attention today, so today I'm joining in: The Simple Woman's Daybook.

Outside my window... grey skies, which should burn off to a 71 degree day. Perfect Pacific Northwest summer weather.

I am thinking... that I am running out of time before this baby is born. And that I need to clean (NEST!)

I am thankful for... the support of my friends and family. And a little boy who is playing nicely while Mommy "works" in bed (while nursing the coffee that my husband brought to me!)

From the kitchen... uh, someone needs to send over their personal chef until this baby comes. We have been eating out way too much lately.

I am wearing... pajamas, but I need to get dressed "for reals" so I can take Sarah and Levi back to the Army/Air Force bases to get him signed up for insurance.

I am creating... lots of knits. I have been obsessed with knitting this pregnancy--about to finish another sweater for the baby, and have been asked oh so sweetly by Eamon for a sweater for *him.* Specifically green and blue.

I am going... (crazy?) to run a lot of errands today. No place particularly fun, but maybe can convince the husband I *need* to stop at the fabric store?

I am reading... lots of blogs and magazines. Throughout this pregnancy and last I haven't been able to concentrate on long stories or novels. That will change soon and I can go back to reading entire books.

I am hoping... to keep this baby inside a little longer. 35 weeks is not long enough. (Though my body would like to be done. Bad uterus!)

I am hearing... my nasty cough, cars driving by, my neurotic cat, various playing noises from downstairs.

Around the house... oh, you poor, neglected house. Someday you will be clean again.

One of my favorite things... that my son wants to be just like his daddy.

A few plans for the rest of the week... midwife, chiropractor appointments, visits from family, organizing the baby's things.

the simple daybook is such a great way to reflect isn't it.
