Outside my window...the moon is making its plunge back behind the earth to spend the day and the sun's rays are just beginning to streak the sky with shades of gold and red. I doubt I shall ever get over the weather around here. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we awoke to everything glittering with frost and air that snapped and tingled with the chill of it. Sunday and yesterday we had temperatures in the 70's. The light was so bright and clear that it felt as if you could see forever.
I am thankful...for a husband who changes out the alternator in a car without giving it a second thought. I am thankful for a brother who helps diagnose the pesky problem.
I am still reading...The 7 Secrets of Confession. This book has been full of moments of revelation, self-reflection, and resolution.
In the creativity department...the work room was quiet over Thanksgiving. Matthew came to visit and I was loathe to spend time sewing when I could spend time with him in conversation. Now, though, it is nose to grindstone, back on the treadmill, crack the whip time. I have a couple of orders to finish and ship today. Yesterday I picked up two more bag orders and a couple of aprons. I also have to put the finishing touches on my gift for the giving tree at church.
From the kitchen...there will be leftovers on the menu. Last night I made meatloaf, broccoli, and baked potatoes for supper. Thankfully there is plenty left so that I don't have to concern myself in the kitchen. After actually cleaning the house yesterday (yep I really did a good job for a change) and conquering mount washmore (6 loads worth!) I don't feel too guilty about indulging my creativity.
A few plans for the rest of the week...finish and ship all the pending work and slip in some of my own projects along the way. One week from today is my husband's 62nd birthday. I am hoping to line up a grandma sitter and take him out on the town to celebrate. The best day of my life happened nine years before I was even born on the day that God sent this man into the world.
Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you...
