a restful fall day

My blogging-umph has departed to who-knows-where lately, but today I thought I would pop in with a few thoughts and pictures.

It's a rainy Thursday.
Bryce is working.
I decided to stay in pajama pants all day (for the second day this week).
Only productive thing I've done today: washed the couch cushion covers.
I like rainy days like this.

My morning consisted of devotions on the couch with a blanket and the dog at my feet.

With a few interruptions from this little man, which I did not mind at all.

Lately, I've been feeling quite pregnant--large, often short of breath, difficulty putting pants on, achy joints, achy back, strong Braxton Hicks, 9pm ice cream shakes, and a lap that is disappearing.

This is my looking-down view these days:

On Sunday we hosted a dinner for about 38 family members. Crazy in my condition? Maybe. But it was so much fun and I didn't even get super stressed out about it. The week before was spent getting ready, plus some nesting instincts kicked I painted, crafted, cooked, organized, and decluttered like crazy. Maybe that's why I needed two pajama-pants-days this week.

A few of the "vignettes" around the home that I've been enjoying lately.

I love fall.
And I love rainy fall days when I don't have anywhere to go and not much to do.
Thank you, Jesus, for a restful day.
