Tuesday Morning Daybook

Outside my window...
...it is lookin overcast. Perhaps rain, perhaps not. I really wish that it would rain.

I am thinking...
...that I need to share some pictures of my garden. It is positively wild right now. I haven't been attending to it much lately and it is growing and growing.

I am thankful for...
...kids who love to make bread, muffins and lately help with meal prep. They are so much of a help that I don't know what I would do without them.
...friends who are praying for the healthy arrival of our next baby.

...a husband who gets it when I burst out in tears on the way to Mass. A man who gets up with me almost every night because of false labour or just escorts me upstairs to the bathroom to make sure that I get there alright.

From the lesson plans...
...I am thinking that I need to map out Noah's lesson plans soon. I should have done it by now.

From the kitchen...
...blueberry banana bread with fruit salad for breakfast, homemade bread for sandwiches at lunch and perhaps a crockpot stew. Hmmm. Maybe the kids will make that stew they made last week.

I am wearing...
...pj's. It is still early.

I am creating...
...I will have to think about this one. I have been knitting and crocheting up a storm. I have posted some of my recent projects on ravelry. Perhaps, I should finish the baby quilt I started a long time ago.

I am planning...
...to rest and be patient. I am really antsy. All of my babies have come during the 38th week of the pregnancy except one who came on 39+1. I am only two days away from 39+1 and thus getting impatient, especially since I was in the hospital at 35 weeks with preterm labour.

I am reading...
...Death Comes to Pemberley. The funny thing is that my older kids are always asking me to narrarate what happens. They have watched the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice and are very familiar with the characters.

I am hoping...
...that baby comes soon. I can hardly wait to meet him.

I am hearing...
...the light humming of the fans running in the house. I really hope that the house cools down a bit more before it goes up again later.

Around the house...
...a load of laundry is waiting in the dryer to be folded. My yarn and projects are piling up and need to find homes. Now, I am just trying to keep the place tidy and ready for the homebirth.

I am going...
...to spend some time with my feet up and relaxing.

I am praying for...
...Sam who is mourning the loss of baby Steven Thomas.

...Jamie Jo and her sweet little Simeon.

...a beautiful homebirth.

...my godmother who is still mourning the loss of my godfather. It would have been their 46th wedding anniversary yesterday.

...Patrick's godparents who are awaiting their 7th.

For the rest of the week...
...a midwife appointment on Wednesday.

A quote for the day...

“Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing" it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.”   ― Fulton J. Sheen

A picture thought...
The first zucchinis from our garden. They are called Romanesco Heirloom Zucchinis. They taste better than regular zucchinis and have been all gobbled up. I hope that there are more waiting for us in the garden.
God Bless friends,

  2. Jamie Jo, wished we lived closer, too. On the atlas we have, it doesn't look that far away, but unfortunately it is.
