Today on Saturday
When I grew up, I had always lived out in the country. When I got married we moved into town. I was surrounded on every side by people. I would go out to my parents to breathe and be able to see the sky.
When we bought our first house, I could only see the sunrise at certain times of the year when it rose between the houses across the street. We bought our next house and the kids had a fort in the back yard. I would climb to the top of it to see the sunrise. Our house sat at the end of another street so sometimes in the winter I could see the sun set. If I stood on the side of our house and looked down the yard to the sky.
I asked God for 20 years if someday, I could live in a place where I could see the sun rise and the sun set Every single day. He did it. Now every single day I see the sun rise and the sun set and every day, I feel like I am the most blessed woman in the world.
I only got one sewing finish done this week. I didn't get as much sewing done as I hoped. This pattern is from Nan Lewis from Threadwork Primitives. This pattern is called Falling Snow Sampler.
We are having the most wonderful January in terms of cold weather. Cold and frosty and getting to burn a fire every day and I keep a tea pot full of hot water on the stove. I love how everyone will come in from outside and make tea and sit down and visit for awhile. The oranges seem to be doing just fine with this cold.
I used to make gallons and gallons of it and freeze it in jars and then in the summer, I would take it out and let it thaw a bit and would be kind of slushy and it was such a treat. This is really the first year we have had a good crop from this lemon tree.
I hope you have a very nice Saturday today. It is a beautiful morning here today.
