I walked in the living room (which is sans rug right now due to a stomach bug/grape juice combo) recently one afternoon to find a dock built complete with a fishing pond. I couldn’t move it, and the next morning the boys put it to use and went fishing.
I somewhat unintentionally “went fishing” myself; I know it’s been a long while since I posted. I have put the time not spent typing to good use; I finished a sweater, made Hubby’s birthday present, completed the Christmas gifts for family in Texas in time to send them home with my dad, turned out place mats, napkins, and napkin rings for my sister in laws bridal shower, and am nearing completion on a set of silk and flannel baby blankets for the impending new addition. I have also sewn and knitted several other gifts. It’s been time well spent, and I can’t be certain that my fishing trip won’t occasionally continue through the holiday season. There is a lot going on around here, and, being 8 months along, I’m working a bit slower than usual. I can promise that I am taking care of myself, creating a ton of things, and taking a bunch of photos so I’ll have plenty to share with you when I have time.
I hope that advent is starting off with hope and peace for each of you.
