Everyday Blessings

We've been at my parents' house all weekend. I can't download any of my pictures from this weekend until later tonight, so you get a random phone pic. :) Onto the blessings:

I am grateful for....

: : A weekend at my parents'! Of course! We had planned on just spending Saturday night, but ended up staying Sunday as well. It's been fun and a much needed change of scenery during Stephan's loooooong work week.

: : A successful shopping trip. I have such a hard time finding jeans that I like. I was down to a single pair, so my mom, the kids and I went shopping. I've never found pants so easily. They were on super sale, too!

: : Finishing the kids' Halloween outfits on time without any major rush or last minute panic. I wish I'd taken a phone pic of them all dressed up for Fall Festival Saturday night, so I could post it from here. Sniff, sniff. I have lots of pictures though. Promise I'll show them when I get back to my own computer. Sophia's owl costume was way more time consuming than I thought it would be, but it turned out awesome. And, Levi makes one heck of a cute dragon. We'll be trick or treating tonight, so they get to wear them again.

: : Time to knit. I haven't had much knitting time in weeks. Cry me a river, right? Anyway, I've gotten to knit some on Levi's sweater this weekend. I feel like a better person when I knit...not because of what I make but because the act of knitting calms my soul. That probably says something about how weird I am, but we won't go there, m'kay? ;)

: : Cozy sweater weather. Need I say more? I will though. I heart a cool, crisp breeze.

So, what where you blessed by this past week?


  1. Sophia is so cute! i love that picture of her in the basket!

    yay for getting things done early!!! i am done Christmas shopping and SO glad because our roof needs to be replaced...and knowing that I don't have the expense of Christmas gifts is such a blessing right now with this unexpected expense!

  2. I love cool crisp fall weather too. We are just starting to move toward the cold and snowy weather and I'm ready for that too. It's always so pretty.

    And I admire you for being a better person when you knit. I've been known to use some choice words because I'm not nearly as good at it as I'd like to be. But I'm learning and I love's always fun mastering a new skill.

  3. I can't wait to see your kiddos costumes. They sound delightful! It makes perfect sense that your creative outlet creates a calmness in you. It's your gift and quite a blessing. Happy knitting and happy halloween!


I'm so glad you're here!
