The Best of Intentions

>> Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I'm still fighting my cold from last week. And this weekend, we had lots to accomplish. Needless to say, we didn't get everything done. A lot of time was spent lounging on the couch, eating, and meaning to cross items off our to-do list. It wasn't all a waste, though.

Stephen ran a 5K!

His first mile clocked in at 4:56, which was wayyy too fast. He was feeling it at the end of the race:

Regardless, he beat his high school PR in the 5K with a time of 16:35 (and snagged 2nd place overall)!

The rest of the day, he rested while I cooked. We bought a large upright freezer a few weekends ago, and we're trying to stock up before Baby A arrives.

What did we make? 10 quarts of Smoked Pumpkin Chili and 4 quarts of 15-Minute Applesauce. All should keep for up to 6 months in the freezer. We want to make more applesauce, another kind of stew, and some Pumpkin Garlic Knot dough this weekend to add to the stockpile.

Speaking of dirtying dishes . . . remember our dishwasher dilemma? Well, we finally caved and bought our tiny portable machine.

We haven't hooked it up yet -- but we're hoping we love it as much as we think we will!

I also started work on a new sewing project. But it had been over two months since I used my sewing machine. In theory, it looks cool . . . but it's not coming together as well as I would hope. Does anyone know where I can find good sewing tutorials online that go step-by-step? I'm hoping to hone my skills over the winter months.

What did you accomplish this weekend? I'm now almost full-term, so we're definitely feeling the time-crunch. And I still need to pack my hospital bag, among many, many other things. Yikes!
