Still round the corner there may wait,
A new road or a secret gate.
I've been up for hours with excitement for the new adventures we're about to have. You just never know what waits just around the next corner. My mind is running a mile a minute, so I apologize for the jibberish you are about to read. I've been thinking about a jumble of things I'm looking forward to in the coming months.
This time of year I always think about the holiday season and how much I love it. I've been fantasizing about baking for fall. All of a sudden I have an eagerness to start putting together Peanut's room. Its just an empty slate right now. Call it nesting but do you know I actually made a pillow the other day? Made it.
I've started brain-storming cookie recipes for various events. I'm presently perfecting an almond joy bar. Yesterday I actually jumped up and down about what it will be like to celebrate the coming Christmases with a little one. B just laughs and shakes his head. I'm a spaz.
The apartment is in a constant state of momentary perfect cleanliness and utter disaster. It seems as soon as something gets cleaned I find another project or memory box or stack of inspirational magazine clippings that need to be spread across the floor and furniture. When B comes home I proudly announce that the entire apartment was clean. Just check under the clutter and you won't find a trace of dust!
I have lists everywhere. Lists of lists. I'm trying to focus my energy on one project at a time but that is so much easier said than done. I feel surges of excitement pulsing thru me. I'm motivated. To do what? I'm not quite sure but I'm gonna get something done. Something.
Today I'm out and about running errands and tomorrow I will lock myself in the house to do a project or two. And maybe start the baby's room. And maybe bake. And I may or may not have a Christmas movie to watch. I can't wait.
What's on your agenda for the next couple days?
