picky eater

Do you have one that lives at your house? 

We do, and after around nine years of having a "food tyrant" in the home, we decided enough is enough.

It is certainly taking time, baby steps, and there are still many things she will not eat, but it is improving month by month. Ah, the sweet smell of progress. I am contemplating embroidering her a napkin with the above quote...but I fear it might just get lost in the wash.

a cowl to knit and some books to read

While Charlotte practices Christmas pieces on the piano, reminding me of the approaching season, I do my own prep of sorts with the knitting of these cowls to be given as Christmas gifts. With fifteen inch needles and requiring only one skein of  *Lion Brand Wool Ease* yarn, they are extremely easy, very quick and so inexpensive to knit. I thought some of Ginny's yarn-along readers would enjoy making some also.






For concentrated reading, God is King by Tom Wells is an excellent book on God's sovereignty.  By my bedside is a book by Lynn Austin, Eve's Daughters,  which meets my need of before bedtime reading material when I find books must be of a lighter fare, but still must be an engaging story.

capturing interludes

An interlude is needed in my day, so here I give you two small interludes that were intentionally captured.


A view from an upstairs window of the maple tree showing off. 
At times George would abide here during the day; I think the beauty perhaps lured him too.


The leaves are falling, the bees are slowing, and I am slowly pruning and putting my garden to sleep for the colder days ahead. 
Welcome to my blog recording the everyday happenings to my assigned space in this great universe. Please leave a comment if you so desire...I like it when you do.
