flower power, something yellow, and a pic of Linnea :)
So thankful Dan was able to get a good photo of me when we visited the hospital last Friday afternoon (the lighting in hospital rooms is terrible!). He had this on his phone and I just got him to email it to me. :) Hard to believe how quickly a week can pass by. Our wee Linnea is doing well as is the mama and the big sis. I've been feverishly working to finish projects I thought I had more time to complete...our little sweetie arrived a week early! I'm on the last row of the yellow before it will be blocked and gifted. Socks for the baby are finished, but the matching pair for Charlotte turned out too small. A larger pair has been cast on and should work up quickly. Thankful I picked up a second skein of matching Patons. A final secret project has been on the back burner, but it will be picked up once the yellow and the socks are wrapped up.
Two in our household were hit with a nasty cold early this week. My recent reading about essential oils sure came in handy -- one of my "patients" used Four Thieves, lemon, and peppermint EOs and sipped on several cups of tea while the other did not. One was remarkably better within just one day, and the other is still feeling rather poorly. Flower power... I'm thankful I was not afflicted (I have learned to use my EOs preemptively). Have you tried this tea?
This weekend my folks will be in town to meet the new baby and we'll be celebrating my dad's 75th!
