tending my yarn garden...
With Mother's Day activities and Charlotte being sick this past week (please keep her in prayer -- thank you!) and with sunny days that lent themselves well to garden tending, my needles have been somewhat neglected over the past week. That's my little granddaughter busy with my needles while at the doctor's office on Monday. Adorable, huh?! It looks just like she's knitting, but of course what she was really doing was imitating her Baba. :) In the end, one needle came out and yarn was strung about, but it's ok. Five days with a high fever was cause enough for the doctor to want to see her, but, of course, we were sent home with no answers other than it's not a UTI. Tangled yarn was a small price to pay to keep her happy!
A Tale of Two Cities continues to be my primary reader; Daniel and I are reading it as our last literature book of the school year and we're nearing the finish line. He's ahead of me, so I've been reading all I can in my spare moments to catch up. Bedtime reading continues in the land of Little House (Laura and her family are deep into the hard winter and just learned that the train won't be coming through until spring). Reading again of the hardships this family endured makes me ashamed of all my sniveling complaints when things don't go quite the way I'd wish them to in the midst of abundance.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's projects over at Ginny's. What's on your needles?
