This baby girl and her baby blues just melt my heart!!! This was at drop-off at school this morning.
On my lunch break today, I ran to the library to pick up my holds. But I think I might have been a little ambitious, getting four at once, with an almost-1-year-old taking up most of my time these days! Luckily, only “Convenience Store Woman” (from the @whatshouldireadnext summer reading guide) has other holds on it, so I’m reading that one first, and the other three are free to be renewed as needed. I’m really motivated to read right now (anyone else go through “reading seasons” like that?), and I’m having fun finding new books to check out. I also ate some gigantic strawberries with my lunch today too.
And look at this picture I got from daycare today, of Emmie doing cute arts & crafts.
Jeff had deacons meeting at church tonight, so after we played for a little bit first, Mommy and Emmie had a dinner date at home, just the two of us. We had butternut squash ravioli from Trader Joe’s, and we both loved it. I just topped it with butter and parmesan, and it was delicious. And it was perfect in my cute little pasta bowl. It may not look like much, but it was really yummy. But I was hotter than hot and there’s not a fan in the dining room, so we moved and ate dinner in the living room under the fan.
I finished my audiobook, The Light In The Ruins, earlier tonight, and I rated it 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. I plan to write a review on Goodreads tomorrow, but here I’ll just say it was good but not great. I’ve read one other WWII novel by this author, and I thought the other one was better than this one, but this one was still good.
After dinner, we did our usual routine of bath, bottle & bedtime snuggles, and she was asleep by 7:45. Now as I finish writing this, Jeff is already on his way home, and I’m finishing up an episode of Nashville on Hulu. Then I’ll find a new audiobook to check out from the library, and go wash up the few dishes from tonight. Thankful for a good Monday!
