For months now I’ve been wanting to link up to Ginny’s yarn along. There has been no shortage of knitting around here, but for some reason getting a picture of my current project has been a challenge. Right now I’m working on a blue Milo vest. This is the only boy coloured item that I’ve knit for the baby. Everything else has been pink, purple (I’m convinced it’s a girl) or neutral coloured. My husband think that it’ll be a boy, simply based on the fact that I’ve knitted the baby a pink Cassia Easter dress.
As for reading, I just bought A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. I’m really enjoying the book. I like that there’s a saint for each week of the year and a relevant Bible verses for each day of the week. There are also saint-inspired activities and family prayers. It’s a well rounded book and I’m happy to have it as part of my book collection. I’m also looking forward to getting a copy of Hallie Lord’s (Betty Beguiles) Style, Sex, and Substance: 10 Catholic Women Consider the Things that Really Matter.
Most of my spare time and energy has been put towards preparing for the new baby. Compared to my last two pregnancies I haven’t spent as much time preparing frozen dinners and muffins. There seems to be less time and less space in my freezers these days. Instead I’ve been focusing on cleaning and organizing one room each day. I was tempted to pick up Having a Martha House the Mary Way but I think it’ll have to wait until this spring. If I have any spare energy I run an errand in the early afternoon or sit and flip through Orgasmic Birth. Most afternoons you can find me napping (or attempting to nap) on the couch. These last few weeks have been exhausting and I’m getting eager to meet our little one.
