Daybook for 03/02/2010

Outside my window...the sky is beginning to show the signs of waking; little streams of light are making there way in at the fringes of the closed blinds.

I am thinking...that The Diplomat's ears definitely respond to sound now. I can usually sleep through Ish's alarm; apparently The Diplomat cannot do the same.

I am thankful for...my brother being safely home in the United States after his tour of duty in Iraq; I got the chance to talk to him on the phone after dinner last night! I am also thankful for having passed my cardiology exam; I am cleared to have an out of hospital birth.

From the kitchen...there is lots of leftover Irish spaghetti, yum!

I am wearing...pajamas lent to me by Ish. I am about to out grow them. My mother has offered to reconstruct and put a lycra belly on a pair of my pre-maternity pajamas when I visit her at the end of the month. I think I will be taking her up on that offer.

I am creating...nothing new. I am still working on the scarf and baby blanket.

I am going...swimming!

I am reading...Girl in Hyacinth Blue and my Reading Workshop textbooks.

I am hoping...that the pool isn't too crowded today. Sometimes the entirety of the men's swim team decides to get in extra practice during recreational lap swim; as a very slow and relaxed swimmer the churning up of the water makes swimming a little bit less enjoyable.

I am hearing...very little at the moment. It's a quiet morning.

Around the house...there is laundry to put away and the kitchen floor needs a good sweeping.

One of my favorite things...is playing hockey (a card game) with my husband when we both need a little down time.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Nothing too out of the usual until Friday. Friday evening, Ish and I are going to a birthday party for our nephew Owen; I am still amazed that he will be 4. This weekend, my friend Genevieve comes to visit from MA. She is staying with another friend of hers, but will be spending time at Chestnut Hollow as well.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
