Daybook fo 05/11/2010


Outside my window...it is sunny and cold outside.  The weather forecast is predicting rain for today.

I am thinking... about Emily and praying that her labor goes well.  I am anticipating today's arrival of a new niece or nephew.

I am thankful for...my husband who has eagerly gone to several child birth classes and all of my prenatal appointments.

From the kitchen...there will be ravioli tonight. I am trying to clear room in our tiny freezer to pre-make some meals for after the diplomat is born. 

I am wearing...pajamas. 

I am creating...a baby blanket for Scott and Emily's baby.  It will not be done on time, but it should be done by the time the baby is a week old.  That is much better than I anticipated.

I am going...to Massachusetts on Thursday. 

I am reading...a lot about babies.  For leisure, I think I have decided on Water for Elephants.  My mom and sister have been recommending it for ages.

I am hoping...to sell some books to a local used bookstore in order to make room for the Diplomat.

I am hearing...the footsteps of Mr. Upstairs Apartment Man.  He has a really heavy footstep, especially in the morning.

Around the house...there is so much to be done.  Thankfully, that does not include laundry--my arch nemesis.

One of my favorite things...watching Red Sox games and knitting--either concurrently or separately.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Today and tomorrow will consist of cleaning and packing.  Thursday morning, Ish and I will be Massachusetts bound to visit my family.  Friday is travel recovery day.  Saturday my mother and sister are throwing a baby shower for the Diplomat.  Sunday we will be returning to Delaware.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
