Busy, busy.

I’m off to the doctor’s office tomorrow for my first OB appointment.

They are scheduling a couple of ultrasounds/scans.  One is to confirm dates, the other is for an early risk assessment (because I’m old and decrepit).  There’s a ton of bloodwork to be done as well.  I’m very tired from all of the running this week, combined with the sinus infection I managed to pick up after the rest of the family caught flu. When it rains…

We still have the entire Triduum to get through and Easter Sunday.  I was planning to get some blocks planned for the kids for next week.  I was planning to do that today.  But what I want to do is sleep.  All. Day.

I think I’ll start with a nice hot cup of tea.

Simple Saturday:: So Long, Winter

We'll see you again...

We’ve got bright sunshine and high, thin clouds today.  It sure looks like spring, but it still feels like winter with temperatures in the 30s.  Brrr.  It’s a good day for handcrafts and tea, while seated in a sunny window.

What are you doing today?

She Felt it Improved People

And I agree.  I always feel better after having had some. Thank you, Mrs. Chips.

Even after Kathie died, Mr. Chips continued to order walnut cake with pink icing from Reddaway’s, and to offer it to his young students, whom he invited to tea.

I think I’ll bring mine along to Elizabeth’s – she’s preparing a lovely gathering place for ladies who want to talk about gentle, natural home education.

Good Medicine

We’re doing a lot of this at our house.  Somehow we’ve managed to catch flu again.  How blessed we are to have squishy pillows and thick, soft quilts to snuggle into. And cups of tea or hot lemon, and soup.

How blessed we are to be able to take as much time as we need to get well.  That is one of the things we love most about our family-centered life.  Time. So precious.

Simple Saturday:: Little Bowl of Sunshine

Our little ones treasure these pretty cobalt blue and white dishes – which came last Christmas.  They love filling them with real and imaginary treats for themselves or for the rest of the family.

Toddler-sized enamel bowls and plates available from Nova Natural.
