Current reading includes Protocol Matters by Sandra Boswell, the January edition of Tabletalk magazine, and my Bible. Yep, attempting to read through in a year. (Attempted this last year and didn't quite make it, so trying again...)
Current read alouds include The Illustrated Longitude by Dava Sobel and Mr Pipes And The British Hymn Makers by Douglas Bond. I'm so thankful my kiddos still enjoy read aloud time with their ma. :)
Beautiful Girlhood by the gracious Karen Andreola is my current mother/daughter devotional with AnnaLynn. I cannot recommend this book more highly, ladies -- lot's of wonderful conversation going on after our readings! :) The knitting? A lone fingerless mitt patiently awaiting its mate to be finished.
And finally, my one completed project over the holidays...a simple purple hat and scarf set for my beautiful girl. :)
Did you really think I'd share all those wonderful books without a few quotes?
For Christians, the purpose of protocol...is the development of relationships, self-discipline, and kind behavior toward others.And because of that third quote, I've also been flipping through the pages of the new Territorial Seed catalog...dreaming of longer days, warmer soil, and freshly picked lettuce.
~Sandra Boswell, author of Protocol Matters
We stand at a crossroads, and we will either rediscover the lost virtues of listening, meditating, and thinking, or we will amuse ourselves to death.

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.
