Outside my window... a sunny winter day with temps in the upper-30s. I have lots of work to do inside today so I won't be bundling up to go out.
I am thankful... for our family's good health this winter, especially when lots of friends have had the flu!
In the kitchen... Hannah volunteered to cook tonight (double yay!!), and her meal is smelling yummy in the crockpot. She's whipping up Honey-Garlic Chicken on ciabatta rolls, stir-fry broccoli and carrots, and chocolate cookies and lemon meltaways for dessert.
I am wearing... black skirt, neon green turtleneck ...with Crocs.
I am creating... Row 1 of the Row-Along that I'm sewing with my friend, Chris. It's been fun to exchange photos of our finished work. Here's my first row that I promised to post...fairly simple and mostly all from scraps, and I'm ready to start on Row 2--the butterfly row. I am going... to my Saturday Sampler quilt class tomorrow at Patchwork Plus, although timing has been delayed an hour due to anticipated icy conditions.
I am hoping (and praying)... that our Canadian friends will be able to visit us later this month, although the health of a grandparent may complicate their travels.
I am looking forward to... hosting tomorrow evening's dinner guests who will stay overnight and attend church with us on Sunday.
Around the house lately... friends from southwestern Virginia passed through recently on their skiing vacation to Massanutten and stopped by for a meal and lots of fun games! Also, earlier this week we hosted a young newly-wed couple overnight as they were passing through on business--that was fun to get to know Joshua and Michaela. And of course, lots of singing around the table while everyone was here:
A picture I'm sharing... The girls and I have been helping Jonathan clean up the 1890s house on the land he purchased last month (what a lot of work!). It's located about 25 minutes from us.
As shown below, the 25-acre plot is a long rectangle that goes over the top of the hill in the distance. Tom and Jonathan have been working on chainsawing and weed-eating overgrowth on the property. It will be fun to see how he develops this prayed-for land: That's all the catch-up for now! We've been busy! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
