End of the Week

Well, it's the end of the week. Thank you all so much for your kind words on the death of our uncle. We've spent the week keeping in touch with my mom and look forward to her return on Monday.

It's the end of the school week, which is nice too. We are taking Fridays for our history, art, and science day, since we just don't get those things done on other days. It does make it more of a day to look forward to.

Everyone is talking about 9/11 today. Eight years means that it was eight years ago that we were packing for Scotland and planning to hop on a plane the next day. Lots has happened since then. I am thankful that God is still in control of everything that happens.

I've been busy working on felted flowers -- all in fall colors.

Although I'm drawn to spring and summer colors, these are warm and inviting, and by some miraculous chance I found a yellow sweater last week!

I've also made 2 dozen minis. Yesterday I made some mini sunflowers (not pictured) which are too cute. These minis are adorable when put on hairclips.

I think I'm tired but there's still work to do and dinner to cook. We have a wedding to attend this weekend, so that should be fun. And a HUGE pile of ironing.......

Heather - you're flowers are so pretty! I love the sunflowers - they are really fresh! I seem to be drawn to sunflowers this fall - ours were destroyed by a hapless critter caught between the fence and shed so we have none to cut and enjoy inside this year, but I'm enjoying those that are just finishing up in a few fields nearby.
I hope your weekend is restful and refreshing! Nothing like a wedding to remind one that more of life's sweet joys are just around the corner!
