Thankful Thursdays

Watching W, despite your political stance, you cannot dispute the fact that Josh Brolin did an amazing job portraying our last CINC.  Joe and I used to love laying in bed on a lazy weekend morning or evening watching movie after movie.  Now that Baby Bear is here it takes us close to 4 hours to watch one movie.  That’s ok though, because there is a lot of pausing and ogling at the new facial expressions our little Buster is surprising us with these days.

Listening ToRay LaMontagne – I downloaded both if his CDs and love them equally.  He is perfect afternoon nap music for Baby Bear and me.

Reading – Since I am currently obsessed with PaperBack Swap and BookMooch I have received a small stack of new books to read.  Currently in my pile are Strong Mothers Strong Sons and Too Busy Not To Pray.  I’m also devouring my book club selection, People of the Book.

Participating InKelli’s CAOK – Calculated Acts of Kindness for 2009.  Once again Kelli is leading us on a journey of doing nice things for people for the Lenten season, although Miss Kelli is pretty good at doing this year round.  Join us here!

Creating – Not much these days as Baby Bear doesn’t take many predictable naps and when he does nap, not attached to my body via a baby sling, I am either showering or doing dishes.  I know that as he gets a bit older and starts playing more independently I will have a few spare moments here and there to turn my sewing machine on.  In the past 3 months the only thing I have managed to sew was a diaper changing pad.  I’m also still knitting that scarf I started over a month ago and it’s far from scarf weather here in Spain, I’ll have to sock it away for next year when I finally finish it.

Gazing At: This amazing face:

Another awesome recipe site.  This one is great too for your mock restaurant versions of your favorite foods.  This baking supply site – which I found via Crafty Crow.  I can’t wait to bake special birthday cakes for my kids and you can be sure I will be using this site for many fun things.  Another fun blog link from Crafty Crow – check out her giveaway. 

Watching: Rocky – yes, I love myself some Sylvester Stallone.  I knew I wanted to marry my husband when I found out he, too, owned the entire VHS boxed set of the Rocky series.  Also watched and loved Slumdog Millionaire.  If you haven’t seen this movie yet, check it out, very well done and such a creative plot line.

Reading: This book, this book, and getting ready to re-read this book for book club.  If you haven’t picked up People of the Book, you must.  I can see a movie in the works for this one someday.

Listening To: Sasha Fierce

Cooking: Chicken Enchiladas and vanilla pound cake for girl’s night, orzo for Parenting Study using a mixture of this recipe and this recipe.
