This weekend, my brother and his wife visited with us. We always love having them visit. James enjoys some guy time with his uncle and I get some adult company which is always welcome. They also watched James so I could spend some time with Lee. Friday night, they went to bed and I was […]

Works of God Weekend

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

So what has God been doing in your life this week? I’m thankful for a visit from my brother and his wife. Also, Lee’s job gave him a Jennie O turkey! And a friend at church gave me a huge skein of yarn. And I mean HUGE. James sits on it for a chair. I […]

My brother and sister in law are here. I had a bunch of ideas I was going to post but I’m busy with my company! Hopefully I’ll catch up soon.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

We have so many things to be thankful for and I’m sure you do too! God is good even when life is hard and he has abundantly blessed us. Today, we have to do the family juggle since we can’t all celebrate together. I wouldn’t be honest if I said it doesn’t hurt, but I’m […]

Lee’s Hat

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Last week, I worked on a hat for Lee. I was excited to use up some yarn from my “stash”. I had purchased the brown wool for a teddy bear that I never knit. The blue wool was given to me. This is the first hat I knit in the round so I’m pretty proud […]

Press On

Monday, November 24th, 2008

We’re facing some of our hurdles this week. The past couple of weeks have been long and we are tired. Lee is discouraged and I am sometimes. I was listening to my new CD today and heard this song. It brought tears to my eyes as everything seems to do these days. But the words […]

Untidy Josephs

Monday, November 24th, 2008

(or sloppy joes if you prefer to call them that) My mom has a great easy recipe for Untidy Josephs. This is not very scientific. You can add more or less of any ingredient if you prefer. Brown ground beef in any amount. For each 1 lb of beef add 1/2 of an onion, diced […]

I found this pattern for Pocketbook Slippers. They look like a little purse when you’re not wearing them. When my friend Joy was here, she found a wool sweater at the thrift store for $1.50. I usually find black or gray wool sweaters to unravel, so red was quite a find! I taught her how […]
