Today I am

wood burning, finishing and packaging birch branch ornaments

keeping the busyness in perspective - that the orders will slow down soon and to be grateful for the much needed business

sometimes failing at this - miserably

thinking about how wonderful it will be to browse the seed catalogs after Christmas

finally saying yes to the hundreds of requests to "can we please do the gingerbread men now?"

thankful to the family friend that gave the gingerbread making kit to the children

remembering that all of the sweetness is just a special treat and not to worry too much

grateful that Emily is much better, but feeling badly for Abraham as his body works on recovering now

boiling water with eucalyptus drops to help with the congestion

thinking lots about all those that have to struggle so much more than our family and coming up with ideas to do what we can

admiring my new shipment of yarn from Peace Fleece - their new rustic colors are just beautiful and their new blends of wool seem softer to me

dreaming about what I will knit with the new yarn and looking forward to having more time to do so soon

loving our chalkboard quote 

what are you doing today?
warm wishes,


  1. Sounds like a pretty good day, hope you enjoy it!

  2. I love those gingerbread cookies and your new yarn. Have a good weekeng.
