Ah, what a lovely weekend! 10 hours of sleep (a night!), and organizing, writing lists, planning projects! Taylor (my sweet, wonderful, magnificent husband!) fixed the disposal, the toilet valve, and the bathroom faucets (well... almost)! We bought wood for a shelving-unit I want to build next to the front door and I had a good chat with my Daddy about various ways to build it, best structure, etc. I'm excited to go home and start cutting and drilling and screwing. Also, yesterday I planned the week's menus! The past few months life has been, shall we say, less than organized? And I've been slacking in my house-wife-ly duties. [Another reason my husband is so wonderful--he doesn't even complain when he has to pick up my slack!] But, the last week or I have made an effort (w/ Taylor's help, of course!) to get back in my groove and, mostly, it's been going well. It's good to feel organized again. Especially with a good cup of tea :) [All that's missing is a best friend to plan menus and share my tea with... *sigh*]

95 - DONE!
Originally uploaded by renidemus
Our sweet younger (not little-er) sister (and oh-so-styling in your pretty new dress)! We are so proud of your accomplishments and all your hard work. You have now joined the ranks of edu-macated people. I'm sure Momma is proud of you, too. Her baby has her degree!
It was great fun to share your graduation day with you, and we wish you all the happiness and success "life-after-college" can bring. Remember to keep close to the Lord in all things. He will be with you always (yes, even to the end of the age).
So CONGRATULATIONS! You are in our prayers always and we love you very much :)
God bless you now and always!

Now that she's received the apron (apronS, actually. I made her two), and is happy with them, I can post the picture of my latest crafty project. Vintage material from my Grammy (pattern from her, too). Time for tea...

I sit beside the fire and think of all that I have seen, of meadow-flowers and butterflies in summers that have been;
Of yellow leaves and gossamer in autumns that there were, with morning mist and silver sun and wind upon my hair.
I sit beside the fire and think of how the world will be when winter comes without a spring that I shall ever see
For still there are so many things that I have never seen: in every wood in every spring there is different green.
I sit beside the fire and think of people long ago, and people who will see a world that I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think of times there were before, I listen for retuning feet and voices at the door.
