I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted. Our school year is now in full swing and I can sure tell it! We’ve also started Awana at church, as well as our homeschool co-op classes, so I’ve really been busy here lately.
For us, we also had our annual county fair. Unfortunately, the rain cancelled the first 2 days of the fair, and we were too busy the rest of the week to get to go except for a brief period one day. We did manage to get our entries turned it. We, as a family, did not do as well this year as last year, but we all still had fun. One of Melia’s photos won first place in its category, and my afghan that I entered won first place! I’ve won 2 years in a row! I’ve never really won much in my life, and this year’s win was unexpected. But, I’m very thankful for it! It was a round ripple afghan that I had made a couple of years ago for Melia. I’ll find a pic and post it for you.
I also had my 35th birthday this month. I am so blessed to have had 35 birthdays! I pray that God will allow me to be blessed with many, many more birthdays!
The down side to this month is that I managed to catch a nice little cold that seems like it wants to linger for quite a while. It always seems that when I need to slow down or de-stress, God always seems to have to get my attention by sending a nice little “bug” my way. Hmm. I wonder what that says about my stubbornness? But, I have managed to get in quite a bit of crochet time, which has been nice. I’ve almost completed the required amount of squares I need to for my Log Cabin Afghan. When I finally finish it, I’ll post pictures for you!
Oh! I also had a “duh” moment a few days ago! Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my Kindle. Well, I figured out that I could add my favorite patterns to it in PDF form! How cool is that?! This will really be a big help when we’re on the road and I want to take my crochet with me and end up misplacing my pattern. (Yes, I have done this before). So, now I have a library of my favorite patterns on my Kindle so that I can take them with me everywhere I go! Just another reason to fall more deeply in love with my Kindle.
Well, that about sums up what my family has been up to. I’m trying to get back to posting on a more regular basis, but it always seems like when I think of something to blog about, I’m no where near my computer and, when I am, I forget what I was thinking about before. I know that I need to keep a pad of paper with me, but I never can seem to remember to do that either! Maybe one of these days I’ll remember! Look for another update soon (I hope!).
