Accomplish ALL The Things {Simple Woman’s Daybook 23}

Outside my Window …
It is gray, cloudy, and the sun isn’t up.  We have had rain for 3 days now!  YAY

I am thinking…
About all the things I need to start fitting into my day: more floor time with Ila, more violin practice with Lexie, more ironing of J.Tom’s clothes (one day I will be able to afford the cleaners!), more walking, more pregnancy exercises … oh.  And more menu planning (really not doing good menu planning), and more blog planning.

How’s that for thinking  😉

I am thankful…
That my husband woke up before me to make coffee and feed the baby cows.  =)  We have started weaning them from their milk (a little late), and boy are they pushy!  We don’t let them boss us, but the taller brown one sure tries.

In the kitchen…
There is bone broth that needs to be jarred up and put in the freezer.

And coffee!

I am wearing…
A maternity dress- it is one of the really old ones from my pregnancy with Lexie.  It doesn’t really fit well, but they make great house dresses now, and are comfy to sleep in.  Old Navy, $10 6 years ago.

I am creating…
probably a mess of everything.  I have so much to do; today is cleaning day, but I also have to work in the basement (ugh) and get ironing done.  I have dresses to finish sewing before baby comes, I want to put together a small unit study for the kids on Little house in the Big Woods, because we are about to finish that, and then we are going to grow crystals.  That’s creating stuff, right?   =/

I am going…
I need to go to Costco this afternoon; if the Mister takes a good nap we will go get groceries and then meet the daddy for dinner out.

Did I mention I have done a really bad job about menu planning lately?

I am wondering…
If it will continue to rain and fill the pond up.  We thought we had a leak … thankfully the hubby had access to a few tons of kitty litter so we spread that out where we thought the leak may be.  However, it may in fact just be that we didn’t have a wet winter and our runoff is blocked a bit, and there is a huge pond next door that has to fill before ours will.

Hoping the hard heavy rain we got last night started the process.  We have had slow, steady rain for 2-3 days now.  It has been wonderful!
I am reading…
Oh gosh!  Okay, so I have a few books on my shelf, but have only really started one.  The first two are homemaking books from the library, though I think I would like to own both.  and the rest are books about raising boys.  Cause … my little Mister is the only Mister and I am a girl.  Therefore I really know very little about raising boys.

I am hoping…
really more like praying God helps me find me the patience and energy today to accomplish all the things!

I am looking forward to…
Not having a mile long to do list!  It seems to come in phases, sometimes I feel like I have it all done and everything is great (obviously, it probably really isn’t).  And then sometimes I am SO. Far. Behind.  Like now. =)

I am learning…
That my Mister needs freedoms, and boundaries, and more reinforcement of consequences when he breaks those boundaries.

Also, that I have let a LOT of time get by me before this baby gets here!  I am 27.5 weeks already, and we have a TON of rather big things to do.

Around the house…
dusting. vacuuming. switching season clothes, packing kids clothes that are too small to save for baby, and I am always decluttering.  Which right now I think we are in a pretty good place with that.  Minus all these girl clothes I have to hold on to!

A favorite quote for today…

Accomplish All the Things

One of my favorite things…
that Ila has FINALLY this week, started saying more words: red car, Lexie, mister, bear, more animal sounds, hair bow, and she pretends to read the words in books by speaking her own little baby Japanese.  It is really cute.

I also LOVE that Lexie begs to take Ila outside while I am prepping meals, switching out laundry, etc.  I do let her take her on the porch or to the back concrete and Lexie just loves it.  So does mister- he drives Ila around in the back of his little pick up truck.  She is so loved.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
I think ALL the lists above should cover this one.  =)

A peek into my day…
