One night down, no incidents, though I can't leave out the fact that hubby and I didn't sleep very well because we kept checking on her.
It really is like having another child isn't it???
I want to thank you, all of you, for your prayers, for your comments, for your words of encouragement and for everything.
You know, one of the things I most enjoy about blogging is the friendships that are forged, even without having met anyone face to face. There's always a kind word ready when you're having a bad day, and that means a lot.
So, after a good night's sleep, and another morning of waking up way too early, I decided to do the housework that I had, which was minimal since I did most of it yesterday....and then spend today at a slower pace.
Some coffee and a slice of fresh bread hit the spot
We did some homeschooling and I even took some time to sew which always relaxes me.
First thing though, I put a gallon of frozen milk in the sink to defrost.
I really wasn't planning on sewing today but suddenly felt the creative itch, and I couldn't ignore it. I had a picture on my computer that I saved a few years ago, and I've been meaning to make it for a while but couldn't figure out exactly how to do it.
Last night I came across a website with a tutorial for making Five Stones, the game, which is sort of like Jacks...and it hit me, THAT is just what I needed to make these cute Folksy looking chickens for my kitchen window.
These were so fast to make and I loved every second, you can't help but smile at the cuteness.
I got them set up to take a photo and right as I took the picture someone came in to investigate.
I can't get over how cute they are, they're just my kind of decoration
There's just something so adorable about the folksy, wonky, primitive handmade decorations that I really love.
And here they are on the window sill
I may just make a few more. :)
After school, I wanted to make something yummy for the kids, so I grabbed my leftover rice and quickly made some Portuguese Rice Pudding
And then I still got some time in working on some cute little quilts for the girls. They're very spring looking, with bold colors and lots of flowers :)
Another yummy comforting dinner and my day was done.
I'm still a little anxious with Lola, it's almost like I'm waiting for something else to happen and I can't quite relax, so I spend my day telling myself over and over that I'll only drive myself insane if I keep thinking about it. Positive thinking Sandra....positive thinking.
I think I'm going to grab my crochet and start a new little something tonight while hubby and I watch reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond.
Have a restful night everyone :)
