and I am grateful. Last week was hard. I am feeling much better. I still have a nagging cough. I can go for an hour and not cough and then I will have a coughing fit. I plan to go to bed early this week and get rid of this remaining yuck.
There was more take out consumed in the last week then I want to admit. Toward the end of week Megan helped me put together a pot of vegetable soup. This is the first time that she has been able to cut.
Oh my was she excited! I purchased this knife.
She keep saying "look at my big girl knife!" It is such a joy to have her help me in the kitchen.
Friday morning we woke up to more snow. The roads were bad and Megan's school had a two hour delay which means no school for her. This is the first snow this season that was wet enough for a snowman.
Now that Megan was finally able to make her snowman I hope that there is no more snow. It is beautiful, but I have had enough this year! The good thing about this time of year is that the snow doesn't stick around long. The only snow left in the yard last night was the bottom of the snowman. Crazy time of year... snow on Friday and thunderstorms last night!
While Megan and Daddy were out playing in the snow I pulled out my sewing machine.
I don't use it as often as I would like. It is a pain to pull it out and then have to put it away when it is time to eat. I told Chuck that for a week or so it is going to sit out on the kitchen counter. I am in the middle of a project and really want to get moving on it. I hope to be able to show you some of the progress later this week.
I also receive my copy of Ann's book this weekend.
I'll let you know more when I get further along. I have already marked a couple of pages. I usually pass my books on to my mother-in-law and then she passes them on, but I think I will be asking for this one back.
It is time to get the new week started. I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
