It's been a long time
It's not like life has been exciting, just busy in a very pedestrian way. I mean I cook, I do dishes I do laundry, repeat. In between that fun stuff I break up skirmishes between the boys, step on Lego's (painful), and enjoy spending time with the little (and not so little) people I birthed.
I have been spending the evenings (and some afternoons, like today) reading. I just finished Cream Puff Murder by Joanne Fluke. The sleuth, Hannah, owns a cookie shop in Minnesota and finds dead bodies. She manages, with the help of her colleagues, friends and family, to find out who did the dastardly deed in between baking up batches of delicious sweet treats. Today I decided to try her recipe for cream puffs and filled them with homemade whipped cream...Scrumptious and so very easy.
I also took up the knitting needles again. I'm working on finishing a pair of socks..so I won't have to hop on one foot in order to wear the completed one. I have been drooling over some gorgeous sock yarns online...someday, maybe I will get some and make colorful socks to wear with my clogs when it's wool sock weather instead of flip flop weather. While knitting socks is far more time consuming and a little more pricey than buying them, there is something therapeutic about the process of knitting.
I read. I knit. I pray. I relax into the present and don't try to solve the problems that may arrive tomorrow, next week or next month.
-Peace and blessings
