Today I am...

I just found this idea on my friend, Darilyn's blog. It was so simple yet said so much about her. Thought I'd give it a try.

FOR TODAY Saturday June 20th

Outside my window... The street light is illuminating the neighbor's trees. I'm just witing for the birds to start their daily singing. I love this new window just because of the birds.

I am thinking... of how to get this baby out of my belly and how wonderful it's going to be to hold her. T told me yesterday that he's going to hold her. I think he's understanding more than I give him credit for. Everyone's so excited around here.

I am thankful for... a patient husband who loves me and my children who have picked up sooo much slack these past nine months. They have really proven, even more than I thought possible, what amazing people they each are.

From the kitchen... I just grabbed an apple (a gala)--perfect firmness. I got it to kill my heartburn. Works like a charm. Wonder if Z was annoyed with the sound of my crunching it in bed. He didn't say anything--see, patient. I also, while I was down there, grabbed some very stinky dishrags. DJ's been in charge of the kitchen this week. She's a STAR! It gleams in there, but she must have been forgetting the rags. Ooops.

I am wearing... my black and white nightgown.

I am creating... all kinds of baby stuff. Today I'm going to work on the last project for Lachlan--the silky/fuzzy blanket, which I have already attempted twice and failed. Today I'm taking it from a new angle. Wish me luck.

I am going... to pick up Q at the church this afternoon and hug her to pieces. I've missed her so much!

I am reading... The Black Cauldron, Skinnybones, and Seven Sons and Seven Daughters with my kids. There's also an Andrew Clements book, but I can't remember it's name, and I'm not willing to turn on a light at this point to see it. I'm also working my way through Jacob 5 in the Book of Mormon--a hard one for me to get through.

I am hoping... that this baby arrives safely and is healthy and that we both make it through the labor thing as easily as has been in the past.

I am hearing... Z breathing heavily next to me and nothing else--ahhh.

Around the house... everything is dark and quiet. Things are in some amount of order. The laundry is 99% done. My children and husband are sleeping peacefully.

One of my favorite things... is feeling the baby's kicks, but I don't think I'll miss it when it's gone.

A few plans for the weekend:
  • Wrapping Father's Day gifts.
  • Finishing up Father's Day plans with the kids.
  • Getting the house cleaned.
  • Picking up Q.
  • Folding laundry and getting it all put away.
  • Working on my last paper and getting it all turned in.
  • Working on Lachlan's blanket.
  • Having a baby--haha! Yah right.
  • Getting everybody ready for Sunday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Your picture thought is the best ever! And you never know, maybe you will be having a baby this weekend! By the way, Chris went with the Venture Crew on a 90 mile coast bike trip this week, that's why he's been gone. It's just me and Emma and Heidi!
