Happy New Year!

After a couple months of not writing I suddenly feel a desire to write all the time! LOL I figure facebook friends are deciding that all I do is update facebook so I am hoping a daily journaling here will slow me down some. Maybe, right?

Bear is watching PBS - Bob the Builder. Glad my aunt told us Bob is still on PBS. Makes his day a little interesting for a while......we have DVDs but he has to get someone to put them in and change them so this is a little easier. He and I played blocks for a while but I get tired of him destroying my creations and give up earlier than he would like. LOL This pregnant momma is having trouble keeping up with the energy of a 2 year old. I don't remember it being this hard when I was pregnant with Greg.

We had a wonderful time with friends last night celebrating the ending of one year and the beginning of another. I stayed up way past my bedtime but Bear let me sleep late. Lee is still in bed. LOL I forgot how much teenagers liked to stay up late and get up late........course my parents didn't allow too much of that......If you stayed up late you still got up early, so I don't have a lot of sympathy for him. He is grouchy when disturbed though! Having supper with another set of friends tonight.....the desserts I am taking are almost done. For some reason I am not craving chocolate at the moment, just strawberries. I love strawberries! I can't wait to get ahold of some fresh ones in June.

I quit doing New Year's resolutions a couple of years ago. I just try to live each day the best I can and do what God wants me to be doing.....every day! That's hard enough :) I do, however, usually set some goals throughout the year. Here are the goals I am working on now:
---reading through the Bible. I have been working on this since mid-year 2009. Not reading straight through, just picking books and reading them through. I have learned so much and hope to complete the project before the baby comes in May.
---exercise. I was up to 3-5 miles 5 days a week in October when I quit walking. Morning sickness was just too much for me. I started walking again this week and was aghast to find out that I could barely huff my way through 1/2 a mile. So I need to get to work on that.

Right now, that is about it. I will update again if I come up with more but for me, simplicity is bliss.

I have a knitting project on needles (socks), a quilting project in the works (tote bag) and a sewing project on the drawing board (nightgown for me). I hope to have pictures of completed projects soon!

Guess that is enough for now. Hope that all of you have a wonderful beginning to 2009!
