Still Freezing!!!

January 17, 2009

But getting warmer by the day.

We’re still finding ways to keep busy indoors…the kids don’t seem to have any problem going from one thing to another, making happy messes and talking about love between lego figurines. More to come on that subject in a couple of days. Anyone intrigued? Anyway, there are blanket tents and caves scattered throughout the house, drawings of snowmen and “no dragons allowed” signs, (too numerous to count) puppy houses, snow gear and empty cocoa mugs strewn about. Did I mention that a water pipe under our house burst? Yeah, that too. For some reason, none of this is stressing me out at the moment.

I’m happily browsing this here ‘internets,’ finding lots of patterns for baby things, cute dolls and recipes (try this molasses cookie recipe; it’s just about perfect and goes along nicely with the aforementioned hot cocoa!) I’ll include links at the end of this post, for anyone who is interested in the goodies I have found.

I’ve also been enjoying some great music that I received for Christmas, along with a book by Nancy Wilson that I highly recommend for women in any season of life. (it’s a compilation of some essays she has written for Credenda Agenda Magazine over time and each one is a quick, encouraging read…more cocoa, anyone?)

I’m feeling grateful for the Lord’s protection over his own. A blogger that I regularly keep tabs on has expereinced his grace supremely this past week. It’s a small world, afterall…

For those of you interested in patterns and projects that I’ve come across, here goes:

How to make a nursing cover. by Little Birdie Secrets

DIY Baby legs… for babies and toddlers :very cute, but more for babies of the girl-variety, so I won’t be pursuing for this particular Smith-child.

Dolls:

The Ruby Doll

Simple Monster Softie

Amy Butler Cozy Kitty (scroll down to the bottom right of the page, for a whole list of free patterns from Amy Butler…you’ll see a picture of the cozy kitty there) the actual pattern is here.
