Outside my window...I have no clue what it looks like. I still have the blinds closed from last night.
I am thinking...that I should really get on packing my bags for the birth center. It would make life a lot easier when I go into active labor.
I am thankful for...the 2 bags of groceries Ish's sister gave us as a thank you for babysitting her kids last weekend.
From the kitchen...the dishwasher needs to be started. There is a delicious summer squash casserole in the fridge.
I am wearing...my pajamas.
I am creating...lots of hand addressed envelopes for a friend's wedding invitations--I should be done with those today. I am really enjoying getting to do calligraphy again. It is much less stressful when gifting a friend as opposed to just wanting to get your own invitations done so you can check it off the list.
I am going...to a prenatal appointment in a few hours. I can't believe my due date is only 9 days away!
I am reading...The Mind Map Book: How to Use Radiant Thinking to Maximize Your Brain's Untapped Potential by Tony Buzan. I first learned about mind maps back in high school from a study skills/ NLD tutor. I used them a bit, but couldn't figure out how to implement them as well as I would have liked. I am hoping that reading and doing the exercises in this book will help refresh my memory and give me strategies for implementing the use of mind maps in my private studies.
I am hoping...to meet The Diplomat very soon.
I am hearing...my husband starting to stir.
Around the house...the crib and changing table are set up thanks to Ish.
One of my favorite things...is my pink Moleskine Volant notebook. I have been writing like a maniac these past few weeks. I think part of it is that I have had a lot to write about, and part of it is that I really like how writing in this notebook looks and feels. For those of you who weren't aware, I am an avid blank book and notebook collector.
A few plans for the rest of the week:The week is nearly over. If I don't go into labor I am going to celebrate a friends graduation from college tomorrow. I have a prenatal appointment today.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...not for today. I don't have my external hard drive hooked up.
