Journal of a Mom: December 14, 2015

THE CLOCK READS...
1:49pm

WEATHER IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS
It's overcast and drizzly.

IN THE GARDEN
The garden is dormant for the winter months.

LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE
Someone is watching "Good Luck, Charlie". Someone is winding purple yarn for her first afghan. Dogs are dozing. Cat is looking at the Christmas tree. Washer is spinning out.

TO DO LIST
☐ Finish Christmas Shopping
☐ Return Returnable Bottles for Refund
☐ Plan and Shop for Christmas Dinner

FOR DINNER
Something with boneless, skinless chicken breast...if it thaws in time.

WHAT'S ON TV
"The Amazing Race". "Masterchef Junior".

CREATING FROM THE CRAFT BASKET
Frustrated with searching for my Sharpie pen and highlighter for bible study, inspiration struck and I reworked a headband pattern to make a "band" for my bible that'll hold my writing implements as well as a small, thin notebook. Others have asked for their own bands. I've sold my first 6 items!


I'm sharing my crocheting creations over at Lucy Blossom Crafts (Mondays)Frontier Dreams (Tuesdays), Small Things (Wednesdays), Oombawka Design (Wednesdays), and Lunamon Design (Wednesdays).

I'M READING...

SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME THANKFUL
Comfy, cozy PJs

I'M WONDERING...
...when will our first snow arrive?

NO WORDS NEEDED

DEVOTIONAL
We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope...Romans 5:3-4

  2. The yarn on the one on the right is gorgeous! Great idea and beats an elastic band!

  3. You and I are both waiting for the first snow. Meanwhile, I get to look at pictures of my friend's place in Utah and drool.

  5. That's such a good idea, I'm always losing pens in the bottom of my bag! Where you live looks beautiful.

  6. What a lovely idea, they say necessity is the mother of invention and it seems that lots of people agree with you
