I’m so tired.

Maybe exhausted is a better word. I keep coming up with things to blog and share. Like Christmas photos, the latest update in my Woodland Enchantress cross stitch progress, just cuteness of that baby who is almost six months old. But then I think I’ll do it later and now we’re a week into January! I have no voice and a fever, again. Again I tell you. I think I had a week or two when I was feeling pretty good but still coughing since the flu hit at Thanksgiving. But now, again. Do you know what it is like to run a normal household day with a three and five year old and not be able to speak? I can barely stage whisper and there is a lot of snapping, clapping, and pointing going on. At least a smile and a poke communicates to baby boy what he needs. . .

Wrap up? Update?

I’m not sure if I want to call this a weekly update or am October wrap up. Either way. . . We’ve been trekking along in school. AppleBlossom is 5 years 4 months old. OrangeBlossom is 3 years 2-3/4 months old. Almond boy Blossom is 3-1/2 months old. AppleBlossom is doing a plethora of fun things. We call this year K5 but a majority of what we are doing is technically called First Grade, although we are in no rush. This week we have come upon the first quarter in Seton Home Study School First Grade, our intent was to make this curriculum last two years, but so far outside of art and music it doesn’t look like it will, so we might make it with lots of reading being our second year of it. But this is only the first quarter so who knows what the next three quarters. . .

Creative Madness of Historical Author Karen Witemeyer!

Instead of the usual author interview, Margaret gave me the option of discussing some of my own “Creative Madness” and sharing one of my favorite hobbies with you. I couldn’t resist. Especially when I saw that Margaret herself shares my passion not only for reading Christian historical fiction but for cross-stitch.

Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday

So of course I’m still working on the pregnancy. We’re at about 14 weeks or so and our next checkup is next Friday. Maybe we’ll find a gender then?? I was able to completely finish the center applique piece for my SisterB’s Wuthering Heights Quilt. (Sorry this picture is awful and not of the completed part, but it’s close). The next step is an embroidered border. The only problem is I cannot seem to find that fabric. For whatever reason it is not in the craft box that I have been keeping this project so I’m a bit confused. However, all my sewing stuff is mostly packed up for our move to our new house! That’s right, that’s another WIP. We are in the process of buying a house and are set to close on March 18th! Pray for all to go well!! Lastly, other than reading my main project. . .
