Listening to:  My sweet friend and neighbor gave me a CD of Scripture set to lullabies called Hidden in My Heart.  She said it calmed her as she prepared for the birth of her second.  As I’ve written about before, I like milestone events in my life to have original soundtracks so that I can always go back to those feelings and memories with the click of a button.  This CD is perfect for that.  It is my soundtrack to the preparation for Mayby’s arrival.  Love.

Reading:  Well not completely uncharacteristically, I’m reading three books at once: The Red Queen by Phillipa Gregory (a book club Christmas gift), Anna Karenina by Tolstoy (for book club), and What Happens When Women Walk in Faith by Lysa Terkeurst (for Bible study).  I’ve also got a pile of books ready to go for when these are finished.  Including, but not limited to, parenting and new baby books.  Third trimester insomnia, I will conquer you!

Working onThe list.  Oh, the list.  Right now I’m on #3: Make quilt for MG’s big girl bed.  It’s about 80% done, but I’m about 90% sure I’m going to need to order a bit more fabric to finish it out.  However, should be done in the foreseeable near future!

Looking forward to:  So much:  Spring (we’re having early spring-like weather tomorrow-this weekend!),  Valentine’s day, my bday, passing my glucose test (fingers crossed), enjoying this precious time with MG before little sis comes, watching a few friends enter that stage just ahead of me (and taking notes), and all of the feathering and preparation that goes into the end of the pregnancy.  We’re chugging right along and I’m feeling great about all that we’ve accomplished and the amount that we have left to do.  We can totally do this!

 

Lots of great things on the horizon!

      If you enjoyed that biography, then I would recommend the Red Queen.

      So jealous you’re going to FL!
