A simple day
First of all I wanted to thank everyone for your prayers. They are helping. The medical issues unfortunately are not cleared up yet, but I will know more possibly after my next visit to the doctor on the seventh.
I made some raisin, walnut cinamon bread yesterday in the breadmaker. It was the first time I tried it, and I had to tweek some of the recipe, since the ants had gotten all my sugar earlier in the week, and I had had to eliminate my powdered milk as well. Still, it turned out yummy. I put on facebook that I had made it and my wonderful husband really looked forward to having some, which meant I had to have some left overs when he came home! I can tell you that that was a challenge since both Joseph and I really loved it.
My sweet Bill had a meeting of the Knights of columbus in the evening, so he was supposed to arrive home at about 8.30.
The last few weeks/ months Joseph really started to get into the phase in which he misses people. So he keeps asking for dadda from about one hour before he usually comes home. So when dadda did not arrive at the expected time Joseph got more and more excited. Unfortunately the meeting ran late and Bill arrived home just about five or ten minutes after I put Joseph in bed. He just had to peek in for a minute and redo the last part of the bedtime routine just so his little boy knew he was at home.
Today we plan on having a calm and fun day. Joseph and I may go to the golden arches playground around noon. I am doubting between yambalaya or breakfast for dinner tonight. I have some eggs that need being used up. Or maybe some spanish omelet. Hmmm choices, choices.
Depending on how tired I feel when naptime comes around, I am planning on getting my sewing machine out and experimenting somewhat. I would like to try and actually learn to sew clothes for my little boys since it becomes increasingly difficult to find something that makes him look like a young gentleman. I will admit I have an extremely oldfashioned taste, but I get so tired of the dinosaurs, trucks or screaming pictures that seem to have to adorn everything for boys over the age of 18 months. Unfortunately when I looked in sewing books at my last visit to Joanns it seems the patterns provide for more of the same of what you find in the shops. Oh well, at least you can adapt. For now though, it would be enough to get my sewing machine back running again. I am planning on practicing by making little baggies for the sugarbeans that I will need for the baptism in february. That way I have time enough. I am thinking of a brown, green or blue toile at the moment, but that might change.
Aside from that, I want to do a load of laundry or two, and of course spend a lot of time on the floor playing with my boy.
