sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Oh yeah, it’s a holiday

So we are not back on our school schedule. I have one more day of reprieve. I must use it to do all the stuff I did not do before. You know, that stuff I listed out, but did not do but sat and knit instead?

Oh well.

I am about an hour from finishing my first pair of mittens! They are to be felted. No stress on that, since I have plenty of laundry to do :)

Tonight is my last class until after the baby comes. I will miss teaching. It has finally cooled off here. Now I am cold, LOL! Here’s the funny part. After all that fussing about the baby blanket, the midwife told me not to finish it yet. She doesn’t want me to be “ready” to have the baby yet. I agree with her on that, having delivered a couple of smallish babes once I was “ready”, but it sure is funny to NOT be finishing the blanket. I’ll still work on it a bit, of course, but I probably won’t finish it until after January is over. We’ll probably haul the birth kit and such out next weekend, and I will get that stuff ready.

These last 2 pregnancies have been so different mentally for me. In my earlier ones, I spent a lot of time “brooding”. Thinking about the baby, rubbing my belly, etc. But with these two, that’s just not happened. It’s like there is no time for it. I know I’m pregnant, and the due date is approaching, but interaction consists of a quick pat on the belly after a particularly noticeable movement, and then on to the next thing. But as soon as the baby is born, it will be like s/he’s been with us forever. It has always been that way before.

Well, my coffee is almost gone. I’m gonna pull that list out and get started on it.
