Daybook for September 13th


Outside my window… it’s sunny but chilly, typical Fall morning in Maine!

I am thinking… about tackling the dining room today. I’ve got to find room for another box or two of Mom’s books.

I am thankful for… Aaron getting home early last night. It was SO nice to spend a bit of time with him!

From the learning rooms… I’m thinking that maybe we’ll start next week. I’d forgotten what the first trimester was like!

From the kitchen… chocolate chip cheesecake for my sister’s birthday yesterday. It came out quite good actually.

I am wearing… stretchy clothes! I’m living in yoga pants these days!

I am creating… a thick sweater that I won’t be able to wear until next Winter! I finished the super-secret scarf project for my sister’s birthday, and decided that I should finish the partially-knit sweater.

I am going… to my first appointment with my midwife on Saturday! I can’t wait to see Andrea again!

I am reading… I think I’m actually between books right now. That’s funny because I’ve been reading a lot lately!

I am hoping… to get a few things crossed off my list today, but I’ll settle for at least one!

I am hearing… “This Ain’t a Love Song” in the background, and my kiddos playing together.

Pondering these words… and how they relate to the American obsession with news networks and talk radio… “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but the newspapers.” – Thomas Jefferson

Around the house… laundry is calling my name once again! I truly believe that it grows when I’m not looking!

One of my favorite things… turtlenecks.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Making progress on my to-do list and watching the Babies documentary. I’m really curious to see the similarities and differences between some very different cultures during baby’s first year.

  1. I suspected you might be expecting from your last blog comment! Congratulations and may all go well! I’ll be praying for you. I got teary eyed reading “the first trimester”- precious, and nauseous times 🙂 I also appreciate your quote from Jefferson.

  2. Thanks Steph! Yeah, the nausea and exhaustion sort of knock me down, but I’m at eleven and a half weeks, so it should be better soon! I have to say, I can identify with what Mom always said, “I’d have a dozen kids if it wasn’t for pregnancy and labor!” They’re worth it though, and I always forget how hard it was once I get to hold my baby. 🙂
