British-Style Currant Scones

I'm nearing the end of the 29th week of my pregnancy, and I can already feel a marked change in my energy level. In my second trimester, I was full of energy and motivation. Now? I'm back to feeling exhausted pretty much all day long... And, now that I'm working outside of the house on a full-time basis again, I feel guilty about feeling tired.

I can battle through the need to nap at work to get my job done -- thankfully, I'm always busy at the office - but I can hardly keep my eyes open when I get home. This past week has been especially difficult because Stephen's been traveling for work, and I'm looking forward to having him home again in a few days.

Despite having a full to-do list, I allowed myself to sleep in this morning. When I finally got out of bed and took care of the dog, I didn't jump to work right away. Instead, I spent some time in the kitchen baking scones. I needed me time... to focus on something I love without the guilt. And I'm awfully glad I gave myself a little break... because the scones were so delicious! I've already eaten two of them!

The day is getting away from me now, so I think it's time I shift my focus to that to-do list, including blogging about our menu plan. Keep reading to see what's on deck for dinner for us this week!
