Linking today with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday.
I am a much happier homemaker now that the gastro bug is behind us, that is for sure!
Today starts the last full week of the school holidays.
On The Weather Front
For fear of sounding like a broken record, it is hot! There is some rain predicted for later in the week, which will be a welcome relief.
I am nearly finished the first book of the Kauffman Amish Bakery series by Amy Clipston. I am enjoying it so far. I love Amish fiction so will happily read any and all Amish related books.
Still enjoying my Little House on the Prairie trip down memory lane.
And look at this cute fabric I found at the Fat Quarter Shop.
Oh my gosh, I want it! But I told myself, I would use up all the plastic crates of fabric and yarn that I already have this year before buying any more. Oh the dilemma!!
That the boys will have a great year at school and that it will not be as terrible as either they or I think it will be. We must all have faith that God has a plan for us.
To let go and just breathe in situations that are beyond my control. I am trying to not get over emotional and just to be happy in the moment.
Still knitting away at my heat mat. It has been a bit hot, of course! Does working through the huge neglected pile of mending count as crafting?!
Also working on baby's quilt and one for my second daughter to take to uni when she heads off in only two weeks! Where does the time go?
Coming up to Australia Day, I am grateful for this wonderful country we live in.
Rain! I need to hear rain drumming on the tin roof while I am lying in bed!
During the week, we went to Cirque Africa. What a show! Such high energy, amazing acrobatics, totally addictive music and dancing. We loved it. It is coming to Adelaide soon, if anyone lives there. Well worth a visit.
And such lovely people - we were walking to the Big Top and the ringmaster, Papa Africa, stopped to ask if we wanted a lift in the circus van. So we arrived in style!
Devotional, Scripture, Key Verse
Have a lovely week!
