Last week, I joined in with Cherished Hearts at Home for the weekly Hearts for Home link up, and I'm joining in again. First of all, I was pleased to accomplish much off last weeks list. As you see above, I made my fudge--and ate it, too! It makes so much I was able to send that plateful to my husband's coworkers to enjoy.
About three out of five days, I got an early start...at the end of the week I lost motivation and energy...for those of you who don't know, I am quite far along in pregnancy.
We went to the pumpkin patch, see the pictures here. It was a gray day, nice and cool, and since people thought it might rain that day, it was much less crowded. We had a lovely time.
We read and snuggled on the cloudy days, particularly Laura Ingalls' Little House in the Big Woods...which has to be the best snuggling book ever. We were inspired to make pancake men...
And, lastly, we had our Daddy Day...emailed pictures of our pumpkin patch visit, called him several times, made him some loving cards...
This week, I want to:
- Take advantage of my "nesting" urge to organize the kitchen and kid's armoire. We have already gone through all the children's clothes, and all our books...eliminating and decluttering. It feels great.
- Make mini-books with the children...they enjoy looking through them for months afterwards. My oldest wants to make one about owls today. She keeps saying Twoowhittoohoo!
- Really enjoy the family dynamics as they are right now, before the new baby changes things up. I saw a comment about this by Gae (Cherished Hearts at Home), and I realized I have been wanting to hurry this pregnancy, and could make better use of it by appreciating the way things are now.
- Spend some good time in biblestudy...again, while things are still quiet.
