monday gratitudes

Today I am grateful...

  1. We got to the apple orchard (Not to be confused with the Apple Store!) this weekend and bought ourselves a pumpkin and my favorites...Cortland apples!
  2. For homemade apple pie (from previously mentioned Cortlands and Macs)
  3. I have been attending Sunday night knitting circle
  4. To have met a nice, young mother at the apartment gym today. She is new to the area and we had a nice chat.
  5. To be reading on the Kindle I got for my birthday.
  6. For pink, ruffles, purple, girly things!
  7. For decaf tea
  8. To have such wonderful co-workers.
  9. That when our daughter is born she will be able to have the same pediatrician I had after my first retired. I really liked her.
  10. That Cary put together his computer desk. It looks nice and he really deserved his own "station" for his gaming!
  11. To have girl's night to look forward to this weekend.
Today I was able to check many things off my To-Do lists. That made me feel so much better. I was feeling like I was drowning in lists of things that need to get each of my two jobs, this apartment, artistically, baby prep, etc. Overwhelming.  I was able to get a lot done.

Here's to a good week!
Happy Monday:)

first baby sweater...for me.

 I finished my first sweater for the baby. I took a class at my local yarn shop to learn the basics to make the Pinwheel Sweater. Such a fun pattern and a lot easier than it looks. The pattern is can be worn two ways so it fits babies through 4 years old depending on how it is worn. In the class it was so fun to see how different the sweater looked with the color choices each knitter made. Here are a few closeups and different angles...

I'm now working on a different sweater pattern in a really nice cotton yarn I have used before and love. Have a few other small projects going too. I haven't been scrapbooking or making cards so my outlet has been mainly knitting. When I have the energy! Last night I fell asleep watching tv by 8:30pm! I'm in for a long pregnancy.

Happy Thursday!

monday gratitudes

It has been awhile since I have regularly blogged and since I have done my weekly Monday Gratitudes. But I have much to be grateful for lately. We are expecting a baby girl this February! We are very excited and cannot wait to meet her. I have been feeling pretty well, aside from a nasty cold and cough the past 3 weeks. We are figuring out how we will juggle everything, organize our little apartment, and enter this new phase. Exciting, scary, overwhelming, happy....all sorts of feelings!

Here is what I am grateful for today...
  • my first day back at the gym since getting a nasty cough three weeks ago.
  • a good night's sleep
  • my knitting
  • a freshly vacuumed living room
  • apples with cinnamon
  • Indian summer in New England
  • long weekends
  • fall scented candles...cinnamon, pumpkin, etc.
I hope to share my most recent knitting project later this week!

Happy Monday!
