Currently blooming

Ah, what a lovely spring day!


What's that you say?

It's still January? Not even the middle of January yet? Oh. Well, someone might want to tell the weather that.

We've had wonderfully warm weather for the past 2 weeks and while it has been nice to sit outside and sun bathe... I'm not looking forward to the summer this is probably going to bring. Although it should mean a better year for the garden.

How have you all been? I feel I've been so boring lately. I have nothing interesting or saucy to write about.

Umm... We had to have a plumber come out and fix our shower! We had a lovely continuous leak from the handle (not the shower head) which was a little worrisome and when Ben turned the shower off the other night and it started not just leaking but spewing... Well I finally broke down and called someone. It's now fixed and a bonus is the handle is so much easier to turn now!

Oh, that's not exciting? Sorry. Told you I've been boring.

The baby blanket is nearly done and I'm so over this project. Don't get me wrong, I love babies, and baby knitting and I have enjoyed knitting this blanket. But it's a large project, and all I've had over the past few weeks is large projects and I'm so very ready to start the few small, little instant-gratification projects that I have lined up. (Well, you know, as instant as 4 or 5 days can be.)

I picked up a mess of books at the library today, most of them being recipe books since I am in such a pathetic menu slump. Hopefully I can get at least a few new meals into our rotation.

I am starting to do the "I need to prep for baby" planning. 32 weeks today! Almost there!

For some reason I am completely terrified that we will run out of bread (of all things) in the first week or two while I'm doing nothing but feeding this new creature. And apparently I can't even comprehend the thought of buying store bread. The horrors! (It's really hard to go back after having homemade almost exclusively for the last 4 years.) So my plan is to make an extra loaf each time I make bread until March and stick it in the freezer. Why I don't seem to be concerned about any other food item, I don't know. I guess they can just eat peanut butter sandwiches for a week. ;) Why I also seem to ignore the fact that my husband is a completely capable adult and is always willing and able to jump in and take care of the kids and grocery shop when I'm down and out... I don't know that either. We'll blame it on hormones.

I am garden planning.

There, I said it. Admission is the first step, right? Planting season really doesn't start until at least April around here but the seed companies have been sending me their beautiful catalogs and I have started my list of things to plant this year. I am very, very excited.

I think I need to start a quilt.

We'll blame this on the hormones too.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

haha, Bread, mine was milk. Terrified they would run out of milk. Why who the heck knows how mommy brains work, not worried about laundry or food or whether I could clean house. It was I was going to run out of milk. I went to the store the day before Peter was born to get more milk. We must have had 10 gallons in the house.
I don't know why you can't think your husband can get in the car and go to the store.
I mean you won't die if they have to eat store bought bread. That just makes me laugh.
It is so much fun being a Mommy. Oh don't buy to many seeds like the year I was going to have Elliot,
I planted those seeds in China they never did come up. :)

Oh boy.....so glad you'll at least have bread! :-) I just LOVE that blanket. It's really beautiful. I will admit that I too am planning my garden. Sigh....the weather is so strange, it truly does feel like spring, although, if the rumor is true we will have snow on Thursday. Happy week to you, Ben and the kiddos!

Lol. The second I see one snowflake I have to run to the store and buy bread and milk. And if a "storm" is forecast, I get an entire grocery order.
The blanket is sweet but I'm the same way after a big project - all I want to do are little ones after that.

If I lived a bit closer I would come bake your bread for as long as you needed.
Your post made me laugh. You just put you feet up, and get some reat and keep pouring over those seed books.

Now why is it that hormones turn out such productive glory at your stage in life, and sluggish sitting and staring at mine? Hmm.

You know that I just love you Meg. Your posts always make me giggle and your love of home and family is refreshing. You just keep right on being boring. Trust me, boring you is a challenge to many your age!

Blessings, Debbie

ps~ I'm more than halfway through my 'baby love'. Of course there was a lot of detour during the holidays but I'm loving it!

You are making me laugh! You are tired of large projects but you want to make a quilt... goodness woman, you ARE pregnant! :)

Your blanket is a dream in both color and pattern. Bravo! Now pick up something sweet like maybe an apple hat for the "new little creature". (I love that you call it a creature). How I've missed you! xoxo
