November morning

This weekend the nesting instinct kicked in!

There was cleaning of the breezeway....taking everything out, giving it a good sweeping (there would have been mopping of the floor but the mop broke & I haven't replaced it yet), throwing old broken toys away, putting everything back. Seeing it nice & clean makes me happy. That's the entrance we use to the house. It finally looks put together & nice!

Then there was a stop at the big baby store to pick up some needed items; a stop at the library's book sale; running Ree home so I could go do a few errands for Santa; back home to fix supper; cleaning out a few bureau drawers & putting a pile of baby laundry together to get washed.

After that there was sitting & knitting. Finishing some socks, casting on for another pair, writing a list of other things to knit before (maybe) baby comes.

It was a slow Sunday morning with the time change. Dark & overcast out. A little bit of knitting; some laundry; dishes washed; church attended; a stop at the mall for a little more Christmas done aside from some gift card purchases!

This afternoon has been more knitting; more laundry; more organizing for baby. My husband has started watching me like a hawk to make sure I don't over-do it and also marked it on the calendar...with Ree I got all this nesting energy two weeks before she was born. I'm hoping at least 3 more weeks for this little one! 

How was your weekend? I'm linking up with Amanda!


  1. Christmas shopping, except for gift cards, done?! You are really on the ball Jen. I am so exciting for you and your family as you prepare to add the newest member, I can't wait to 'met' him or her.

  2. Sounds so productive :) Nesting is definitely a force unlike anything else!

  3. hmmmm, nesting....I think that baby might be telling you something! My husband broke a broom last weekend, I think it's as old as our marriage :) so I guess I'll be buying something boring this week.

  4. How exciting!!! I think that baby might be here sooner rather than later.

    And it looks like Ree enjoyed Halloween. What a cutie pie!

  5. wow! done with the christmas shopping! impressive.
    have a great week.

  6. my wee lass had a due date of dec. 29 so i did a lot of early christmas shopping - was so thankful i did because she arrived dec. 22. enjoy this time of getting everything ready and being mama to ree - your life is about to get a bit more full :)
