Sunday Currently

A lovely shot from our Friendsgiving ugly-sweater party last week. Justin is clearly thrilled.

baby: We're officially in the third trimester...holy crap, how did that happen already?! In the last week or so it's like a switch has flipped; I've finally gone from constant worry to feeling entirely content and connected. We had an ultrasound last week and I actually teared up seeing the boy in 3D. He's been on the move quite a bit, and occasionally giving me a jab to the bladder that makes me worry for a hot second that I'm about to pee my pants.

Accomplished. We were supposed to have Christmas service rehearsal at church with the kids this morning, but because of the snow I got a lovely text this morning that it would be cancelled. So instead of laying in bed, I wrapped up in my cozy robe and slippers and headed downstairs. I just finished up all of the dishes, swept the kitchen, and folded a load of laundry. Then I corrected, entered grades, and planned my lessons for this week. 

watching: Knitting podcasts. Specifically Legacy Knitz (my favorite) at the moment. If you're at all interested in watching/hearing people talk about their current yarny projects and showing off their squishy yarns, I highly recommend checking out this podcast. 

drinking: Water, water, water. And I just finished some hot chocolate from a holiday mug, obvs. 

smelling: The chicken and dumpling soup that Justin is preparing in the slow cooker in the kitchen. Yummmmmmm.

wearing: Remember the cozy robe and slippers I mentioned above? Still that. Honestly, it might be that all day. 

working on: Several things, actually. Something for a friend who is having a baby soon (that is so close to finished!), this little Hobbes doll, and a new project I just cast on last night: this sockhead hat for myself. If I'm being completely honest, all of my projects are the real reason I was so productive this morning. I figured if I could get those big things done and out of the way I could spend the rest of the day on the couch, yarn in hand, and not feel so guilty about it. 

That's what's going on with me. I'm off to spend the rest of the day with my yarn and watching the snow out the window.  


  1. Sounds like an amazing day! My Saturday was kind of like that and it was the best. Except it was more organizing, furniture building, and book moving than knitting, but that's what Sunday was for :)

  2. Hooray for the 3rd trimester!

    'Tis the season for doing nothing but sipping hot cocoa and playing around with yarn. Best time of the year!
