I am thinking…about the homily at yesterday's Mass. It was powerful, it was pro-life, it was highly critical of our Chief Executive and his administration (highly critical is nearly an understatement!), and I am so very pleased with Father for his show of courage. One family actually walked out on him.
I am thankful for…Many things. My husband, my kids, my family, my faith, homeschooling, farming, this pregnancy, my friends near and far...
From the kitchen...Muffins today (Banana).
I am creating…another hat and bootie set, this time in pink from the gorgeous Blue Sky Alpaca sent to me by Dandelionmom! Everything I've made so far was a blend with synthetics because that is what I had on hand, and that is what is affordable. Knitting with this stuff is so heavenly!
I am reading…Reading My Daily Bread. Easy to digest as it is served in small bites. Perfect for my addled, distracted brain.
I am hoping…to get a bit more cleaning done this week (vacuuming under furniture and such, with Bret's help) and to pass the 1-hour sugar test this week so that I don't have to go back for the 3-hour). I always seem to fail the first and pass the second.
A few plans for the rest of the week… The 3 oldest kids have dental appointments this morning. I am filling out the May calendar this week and will plan to have a little Mother's Day luncheon over here. The hog is going to the butcher on Wednesday, so I need to make a cut list. And I still need a couple of gifts for Sebastian, who will be 8 on May 15th.
The children are... all up! In the last 2 minutes they have come into the office one-by-one to offer a sleepy hello. Dominic is lying on the floor at my feet with Pooh Bear...A Picture Thought: The children found this little guy on the ground on Saturday. They couldn't find a nest and brought him in for a while. Later they went out and saw a mommy-bird jumping about and squawking, and the baby bird began to chirp back. So they put the little guy down and backed away. All we can do is hope for the best. We have taken on everything from baby birds to baby mice and rabbits, and our success rate for their survival hasn't been too good...
