Life has been too full to find minutes to carve out for blogging (or reading blogs!). I was telling Michael today that my ironing pile is five feet high and he thought that would make a great title for a book. Ha ha! Ironing is not my priority (even though I do enjoy it) but there does come a time when no one has clothes in their closet to wear! That time is just about now.......
We have enjoyed something like eleven days with snow on the ground! Very unusual for Indiana and it has helped to make December feel very festive. We were at Trader's Point Creamery this past Saturday to man our table at the Christmas Market and I so enjoyed the feeling that I was back in Vermont (my birth state).
I just love these cows!!! I am always drawn to cows, I have been since I was a child. I think, again, it is the rural Vermont connection. They are in my blood!
I'm enjoying wearing the red coat a friend handed down to me a few years ago. And of course I try to wear plaid nearly everyday. I finally sat down and made a flower for my own self! Yes! I like it with the red of the coat.
Poor people. I'm always requesting to take pictures of them. It's just fun.
We had so much fun being vendors at the Christmas Market on Saturday! It's just like playing store (remember doing that as a child!). And tonight I even got to play bank -- depositing checks via mobile phone is awesome! It's funny how the things you do as a child often end up in your life as an adult -- I was the child selling homemade cards on the street at age 6 or 7. Christina was the child crocheting wool slippers for us for Christmas -- now she sells artisan versions at Christmas Markets. :) And Emily, hmmmm.....the age gap is too great for me to remember exactly what you liked to do, except that you always were so cute (definitely still the case!).
As for my little family, we keep busy trekking to all our doctor appointments -- it's our family hobby. Thankful today for Laura's initial good report from her MRI that all is stable with the cyst in her head. School is ending in a few days and we will all enjoy the little break. Christmas is around the corner and it would be a good idea if I started baking......but maybe I should tackle the ironing first!
