Ah, life! I've been reflecting on the slowness that some days seem to crawl by on as well as the speed that life passes by. It is encouraging to think that I do not have to become bogged down in the every day chores and desires of more to accomplish (so, so easy for me), but I'm finding that I need VERY regular reminders that my tasks should be prioritized more along the lines of big picture view! Thankfully, God is good; and provides people and readings to remind me!
Watching one of my honey bee colonies swarm this week (after I had just checked that the bees had enough room last week) is frustrating but encouraging me to learn more about the bees. I think possibly they are a little too hot in their current location. This is the same hive that swarmed last year too, so it might just be a characteristic of this particular colony.
My kids have started school! Yay! Yay for learning and expanding the mind - we are already having talks about using our school (and attitudes when the lessons get hard) to serve the Lord. I'll let you in on a little secret....I can get some extra knitting time while I sit next to my pupils working on their lessons :)
My blog swap package arrived, and I have been enjoying the goodies sent by one of my newest blogging friends:
Can I just say.......blueberry ginger jam!!!!!
My parents' anniversary today represents 38 years! We had a nice dinner last night (provided by them, no less) around our table. My little gift to them was matching handknit washcloths.
Speaking of knitting; have you been by my etsy shop lately? I added something great for the chilly-er (!) weather! I think it is just wonderful that my blog swap partner had knitted something similar for me to use.....I tuck my cozy in my purse in preparation for any coffee purchase :)
Well, I could go on; but another post will have to follow. TTFN!!
