4-25-2016 Library Card

For the past two years
DH and I have taken the GDs to the library
every Monday morning
and we check out 10-12 books each week
and read them numerous times before returning them
the following Monday.
Today, we did something special...
Mommy had a vacation day
and was able to come along
and we got our oldest GD her very own library card!
She was sooooo excited!!!
She skipped through the library 
and told everyone who would listen,
"I got my very own library card today!!!"

4-11-2016 Abracadabra!

This white abracadabra yarn
changes color when exposed to sunlight!
How fun is that!
Need to make the GDs some mittens
so they can wear them outside and 
watch them change colors!

Also, check out the other skein of yarn...
I call it "Mardi Gras in a Skein"
and already have the perfect cowl pattern for it!

4-8-2016 A Year in the Making...

Well, it's been a year ago today
Sky Scarf )
that I began knitting my "Sky Scarf"
and today I knit the final row!

Each day I knitted one row to reflect
what the sky was doing that day, 
so nature dictated the stripes of the scarf.

of Psalm 23
with the church choir
in a few weeks!!!
You know who you two are!!!
