Finding ways to pass the dark evenings...



Saw this on Evalicious' blog and I thought I would play along (she saw it on AE's blog, so you know, play and post along with us!)

Outside my window...it's quite dark and cold, smelling like snow and wood stoves burning already...it's pretty nice actually.

I am thinking...about my son (or 'mon p'tit fils' as I call him)

I am thankful for...
all the people who are going to make sure that me and my Marfan-y body delivery this baby as safely as possible. I'm very lucky to be so close to a wonderful health care centre that specializes in high risk pregnancies (the only one in the Maritimes).

I am wearing...the only pair of non-maternity jeans that still fit me, a T-shirt from Old Navy, a hoodie I bought a couple of weekends ago (and is already tight), and some black socks.

I am remembering...
to enjoy every moment that I can with Dan, since we won't be alone much longer.

I am going...
to resist starting Christmas projects until at least November, even though I want to start them now.

I am reading...nothing at the moment (must change that soon.)

I am hoping...that our plans will get sorted out soon, and that I can delivery my baby the way I want to (no C-section).

I am creating...some presents for friends, a blanket for a friend and some cards for my 52Q Art Journal.

On my mind...all things baby. Mostly things I need to get soon, such as a crib, car seat, cloth diapers and a stroller. Also thinking about my delivery and what it will mean for our plans.

From the kitchen...Nothing tonight, we had to do groceries so we ate out. This weekend though I plan on making some apple crisp with my bruised apples.

Around the house...
Dan is re-stringing his guitar, Shimi is outside adventuring, Neil Young is playing and orange candles are lit.

One of my favorite things...right now is feeling a kick in my belly :)

A few plans for the rest of the week...this weekend I plan on working on some crafty projects (trying not to jump into Christmas items), bake an apple crisp, and go to a Hot Toddy concert on Sunday night with my hubs.

A photo to share...


My 20 Week shot (my hand is over my face because I can't believe I got so big so fast! The past 3 weeks have been crazy, he just popped right out! I was happy though because I finally got to wear this sweaterdress that I've had for over a year, I was waiting until I looked preggo enough and not just 'fat' to wear it.)

If you play along please link me up in the comments, and happy chilly night to you!
