Happy Friday, my friends! We had a few bumps this week – a sick pup and stormy weather* – and the last 18 hours have been OK. I’m still a bit sleep-deprived and this is the happiest smile I saw today
Thank you for all your comments about my OLW; I’ve loved reading what y’all shared about yours (and about all the other stuff. I’m hoping to find a way to be better about sharing my stuff, too).
TGIF is still one of my favorite ways to wrap up the week and this week is gonna be a ride!
Thinking about … (stay with me on this)…
I’m sure y’all have seen the memes about how it started/how it’s going. Here is mine for today
and yes those are my feet on the chair and yes BOTH those books migrated from my “reading table” to my “DESK!” in the course of my small group discussion this morning. and yes, I did clear a bit of space (I’m typing this post on that laptop) and I did light the candle. I turned on the lamp. and poured a bit of bourbon into a glass to sit on that coaster. I’m sure I just get way inside my head Too Much. and still. I see photos like this and I am grateful that I document things. stories matter. My pastor shared these words in a recent devotion
As you live into your to-do lists and hopes for 2021, make sure that paying attention to the overtures of grace tucked into the ordinariness of life is somewhere on your list. No matter what else happens to you, these extraordinary moments of love and kindness also happen to you. Pay attention to them and for at least a moment, be overwhelmed with joy.
(feeling a little scattered, a little tired, and very much wanting to pay attention. and to be overwhelmed by joy.)
Grateful for our bubble. Charlie & Sam are sleeping over Saturday night!
Inspired by gosh! all too many of you!! to 1) participate in the 100 day project; and 2) choose a STITCHING project!!! sigh. I succumbed to both.
Finished! finally. This is Great Love** … and I do GREATLY love it! This is really the perfect sweater for where I live. It works as a nice layer inside because we keep our house a little chilly and outside, when it’s 40-ish degrees, well…
Today was a gorgeous blue-skies day, and we had “fun” with the photos.
except for that sun!
Marc has way more patience than I do. obvisouly.
Happy Weekend y’all! let’s make it the best one we can!
*Holly had tummy troubles (which led to a visit to the vet and – ugh! – pills I have to force down her throat – thankfully we’re almost halfway through them) and some winter thunderstorms/tornadoes blew through. Of course NONE of this happens during daylight. The combination of 2am wake-ups and stress/worry has made me even more grateful I haven’t had to worry (much?!) about the news. or a real job 😉
**to be posted on Ravelry … soon!!
