Tending my yarn garden...
Not much new to share this week as I'm still plugging away on baby socks when I have a free moment. I think the worst of my tax season bookkeeping is over; we'll see what my accountant has to say about that when I meet with her this afternoon... What I've learned is that there was so much I didn't know I was supposed to be doing, so I spent the past many days playing catch up, but I think (fingers crossed!) I'm caught up. Lord willing, now that I know what I'm supposed to be doing, things should go much smoother next year at this time (again, fingers crossed and praying...).
I just have to share about The Early Morning Revival Challenge by Sharon White. It's not so much a book to read but rather serves as a brief guide through 90 days of Psalm and Proverb reading along with prayer and journaling. Spending just 20 minutes each morning by my woodstove in the dark quiet before anyone else is up and about has truly been a balm to my hectic days of shuffling papers and QuickBooks entries. And the journaling? A habit I fade in and out of has become a time of written prayers based on the Psalm or Proverb read that morning which is quite different than the way I ordinarily journal.
On another note...
I was hoping to post that potato recipe I promised and hope to do that now that my desk is tidy and my paperwork is all filed away. :) Oh my life, I will be so glad to have you back!! I've been swimming in a sea of bookkeeping and I'm so thankful the shore is in sight! My poor, neglected knitting projects will no longer be orphans. Those blog posts sitting in my draft file (recipes!) will finally be shared. My garden will get some much-needed attention and planning. And most importantly, my children will get their momma back. :)
So how's your yarn garden blooming? What's new in your world? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's. :)
