Daybook for April 22, 2010

Outside my window... cool and rainy. Hubs got a start on planting corn, but this gives him a break to celebrate my birthday.

I am thinking... about the post I'm working on for my portion of the spring cleaning carnival. Food additives cover a whole lot of topics.

I am thankful for... a negative result on the rabies test performed on the bat that Goose found last week. Whew.

From the learning rooms... we had a ball collecting and playing with little pine cones this week. We reconstructed our whole farm, with the addition of some Care Bears that aren't on our real farm, of course. They all live in Care-a-lot.

From the kitchen... hamburger, carrot, and potato packets tonight, it's looking like slow cooker peanut butter cup cake for my birthday, dinner out tomorrow night, and roast chicken with homemade noodles and mashed potatoes, courtesy of my mother.

I am wearing... sweats. In my defense, it's laundry day, and while we were visiting Hubs's cousin's 10(!) new puppies, the mama bonked the heck out of my leg wanting attention, so they went in the wash.

I am creating... the above carnival blog post. And another round of soft blocks to list in my Etsy shop.

I am pondering... what a different perspective there is from the other side. Of everything. And whether Hubs's going out for lunch without me today shall result in forfeiture of the last piece of ice cream cake that's in the freezer. I'm thinking yes.

I am reading... the same things as last week. I can read blog posts like nobody's business, but when it comes to flipping pages, I don't do as well as I used to.

I am hoping... to pick up a little freelance work from a former employer. I sent an e-mail, just waiting for a reply now.

I am hearing... Goose enjoying her "quiet time" over the monitor.

Around the house... the laundry room is finally dried out (though not cleaned up, yikes) and back together.

One of my favorite things... Goose and her Papa in a tractor. She's shaping up to be quite a farm kid already.

A few plans for the rest of the week... last week's dinner out for my birthday shifted to this week, hanging out with my parents, and I'm hoping to go visit a cousin who just had a baby. (And I finally got my driver's license renewed.)

A picture thought I am sharing...

So glad that things are okay with the bat situation! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I say just the fact that you have the most recent birthday is reason enough to indulge in the last piece of ice cream cake without sharing. I mean, really, it YOUR birthday!

Can't wait to read your post. I love the series even if it totally overwhelms me at times!

Hope you had a great birthday! Thanks so much for replying to my comment(s). To reply to your comment...thanks so much for offering about the nurse-midwife thing. I think though that since I'm so close AND since I'm really looking forward to that intrathecal haha, I'll probably stay with my Doc. Since this is (God willing) our last baby, I think I'll just tough it out. My sweety finally got back in the fields today. How do you handle being a Farming Widow (toungue in cheek of course)? oh and congrats you are officially (besides my big sister) the first person to visit my BLOG YAY! Thank you, it's good to be read.
