If I’m honest, I really miss writing. My time lately has been filled with school (teaching 3 grades can do that) and resting. Things have been uncomfortable the past weeks with baby, but excitement has still continued to grow.
Our Saturday mornings have been super relaxed and I love them. They’re so relaxed in fact, that I occasionally forget to open my laptop to type… I just enjoy the slower pace and laid-backness that is our new routine.
I tend to wake up around 7:00am due to hunger and baby kicking me as if to say, “time to eat, mama!” So I push myself out of bed and go fix something. This morning was a melon juice (helps with my leg cramps!) and two oatmeal cookies.
A little after 8:00am when husband is up, we walk to the bakery a few blocks away and buy bread and tamales! This morning I got a cinnamon roll too… my day is tomorrow, so I deserve a sweet treat. Then we bought a newspaper and walked back home. On the way, we saw our old landlord and talked to him for a few minutes. I feel so cool seeing people I know in the neighborhood considering I really don’t know very many people!
We get back home by 8:40am and sit down to feast on tamales, bread with butter, instant coffee, and orange juice! Yum. Then we move over to the comfy couches and read the newspaper. We may sound like old people, but hey, we enjoy this little routine.
Right around now (as I’m typing it’s 10:15am) we head to the big grocery store to buy things for lunch… trout, potatoes, veggies, maybe new pillows for this sore mama’s back, etc. And since it’s time to go, I’ll finish this later!
Ok, I’m picking this back up at nearly 3pm after having eaten lunch and talked to my family for a bit. And now, here are some links I’ve been loving this week!
New Justin Timberlake song!
This chocolate vinegar cake sounds yummy & simple to make!
Neat article about the linguist who created the languages for Game of Thrones. Linguist nerds unite!
My maternity wear has been limited to stretchy sweatpants at home, and maxi skirts with stretchy shirts to work. I was happy that this maternity dress from Old Navy fit and still was work appropriate! It’s so comfy!
I added quite a few of these historical fiction books to my to-read list!
What I wish I knew before my baby was born… this was nice to read.
Pretty DIY and organised things!
This is a really sweet video about moms, and how the kids learn that the perfect mom for them is the one they already have. I definitely cried. (Not sure if there are English subtitles available)
And, random, but I like these online puzzles from National Geographic, and this one looks like a Quechua woman from Peru! She could be from Ecuador or Columbia though, but regardless, she’s beautiful!
