This afternoon was overcast and very rainy here in the Midwest. It felt like very "cozy" weather. Michael was away most of the afternoon officiating at another wedding. That makes three weddings he's performed this year, and a fourth that he participated in. (Interestingly, each of these weddings had chocolate brown as the main color!) I'm afraid I had to miss this wedding as well as the last one, but I was able to have a relaxing day at home with the children instead.
The children and I tried out my new teapot (a gift from the last wedding) at teatime today. It has a wonderful strainer that sits inside the top so you can use loose tea without the hassle of holding up a strainer. The pot worked so well. The children sat around oohing and ahhing at the downpour outside and drinking their tea and eating snacks.
Rachel and Andrew and I are reading Farmer Boy right now and so we got through a few chapters today. I always loved that book because of the abundant descriptions of food all throughout. My memories are not letting me down, the book is so fun to read.
Tomorrow I am hoping to make it to church! This will be the first time since my "crash" in July. I've been progressing well this week and am no longer bed-ridden! Yeah!!! I've been able to help with lunch and dinner and one day managed them both by myself! (I'm still not doing much of the clean up) I am so thankful for the progress.
Happy Sunday to all of you!
