It's been a while, I know...
Life is funny sometimes -- a whirlwind of days that flow one into another. Time passes and before you know it, the weeks have flown by and you wonder where the time went!
Among other things, the past seven weeks have been filled with relaxing late summer adventures (a week at the Oregon coast being a highlight!), preparations for the new school year, and, yes, even sad good-byes. The contrast and flood of emotions has been overwhelming at times. My Daniel is a senior this year which just doesn't seem possible. Exciting yet bittersweet. Jess & Zack are back in Europe and are enjoying Scotland, the next chapter in their happy story, yet for this mama, I just have to say that I miss my girl. And now that we're almost a month into lessons and fall is upon us, I figured I'd better jump back in here or it might never happen. I've kept up via Bloglovin and am excited to stop by and see what everyone's been up to. :)
I slowly read To Kill a Mockingbird in August, feeling the need to reread it before taking on the sequel (currently on my nightstand with a bookmark stuck somewhere in the middle of the first chapter). Fervent is a book I picked up after seeing the movie War Room which I liked enough to see twice. Prayer is a mighty tool in the hand of every Christian, and who couldn't use a little encouragement in this area? So far I'm loving this book and highly recommend it.
The gorgeous yarn pictured above is KPs Stroll Fingering in the Inverness colorway -- destined to become another mobius. Summer knitting included new Pumpkin Patch Beanies for my sweet grandbabies, Charlotte & Linnea!
These girls make my heart sing!
