My ears are ringing. Nathan & Emily just had a very loud fight over who gets the Little People bus that one of them dug out of the attic yesterday. Nathan insisted he had it first and Emily was screaming “MINE!”
And the parakeets decided it would be a nice time to try to outdo the kids in noise volume. They like to do that frequently. It’s like a game or contest to them. Let’s see who can scream the longest and loudest.
I am in a great mood today because it is sunny again! After 3-4 days of gloomy, pouring rain, it is finally beautiful again!
I’ve been trying to figure out a small project for myself to do to keep busy during the next couple of weeks. I’ve pretty much finished all the nesting I wanted/am able to do. I still have one small thing left to do – repaint the stairs – but I am waiting for Nate to either find the paint or buy me some more.
But I think I’ve found my project. I am going to organize my recipes. I love cooking & baking & I have a ton of recipes. I often print recipes from Tasteofhome.com because I couldn’t find my copy or because I wanted to try something new. This works great, but the problem is I have stacks of recipes printed on full pages. If it’s a recipe I really like and plan to use again, I’m going to go back online and reprint it in the 3×5 recipe card format. I then cut that and tape it together with packing tape. It’s not the most professional job but the packing tape works well because not only does it hold it together, but it also protects the recipe.
Not the most interesting project, but I think it will work for now. It’s not too messy and I can easily do that at the kitchen table or while I’m resting on the couch. So I can keep myself busy yet I’m not overdoing it at the same time.
Nate is hauling trash from our incredibly messy barn to the dump and is also (hopefully) going to be working on a small issue with his car this afternoon. As soon as he gets home from a trip to the dump, he’s going to take the kids and do my grocery shopping. Yay! That’s no small task either as I generally have (small) lists for 3 stores or more as I try to get the best deals. But I really appreciate it because at this point, I am just not up for that much walking.
What a beautiful day! This is the perfect day where I would love to take a walk with the family. But there’s this 8+ pound baby in my belly who’s killing my poor pelvis and making it difficult to walk that kind of hinders that plan. I guess I’ll have to be content to enjoy the weather from around the house.
Did you notice the new blog look?
I like to change things around frequently and I like this look better than the old…what do you all think?
I hope you all are having a nice weekend!
