Nesting

Have you heard of "nesting?"
"Nesting is a ritual performed by pregnant women in ridding the house,
the "nest", from anything potentially harmful to the soon to be born child."
For me, nesting is also a time when I prepare for baby by making sure babies clothes
are washed and cleaned and the nursery is well stocked and ready.
Since I don't have my own nest (home) to prepare a new baby for,
(besides this tiny bedroom we all live in),
 I am "project nesting".
I've been painting silhouettes and just yesterday painted
 a few portraits of my sisters deceased dog Joe.
And I don't know why either.
Probably because I'm nesting.
