Update: Handmade Afghans to Thank Our Armed Forces Project
What do 60-some crocheted 6″x9″ rectangles look like? Well, something like this….here are 42 rectangles. I was handed about 20 more from one of my teen girls at church after I snapped this photo. She and her grandmother did them together. I think that is precious. EDITED TO ADD: I must clarify that I did not crochet all of these squares. I asked a couple ladies at church and my teen girls’ Sunday school class if they’d be interested. They were interested! I did about a dozen or more …. lost count after awhile.
I received a yarn shipment this past week. I say “shipment” because I bought from Discount Yarn Sale online and they deal in bulk quantities. So, I have 10 skeins of Patons Decor, a wool/acrylic blend —-> thus, it is washable! I am using the hook size recommended for the pattern, although it is larger than what is suggested on the yarn label. I can’t decide what I think about this yet. The color is beautiful, BTW! No, there are no forthcoming pictures….at this time, anyway.
We are wrapping up our study of Remarkable Women of the Bible. This has been nearly a year long teaching project. Wow, I never would have guessed. I love God for giving us so many examples of faithful women who worked for & glorified God despite their own shortcomings. Like the song says, “little is much, when God is in it”!
Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice…..does it get any better than this? It helps that oranges are affordable and delicious this time of year!
Taekwondo — I have a meeting with one of the instructors this evening, as we (the boys and their paying parents, that is) have been invited to join the Black Belt Club. Don’t you just love how sales people word things? That is the goal, regardless, and I am glad the boys are doing well in their latest endeavor.
Homeschooling is languishing due to lack of interest. I will blame that on a 2nd shift lifestyle and leave it at that.
Speaking of a 2nd shift lifestyle….eating a big meal at noon is really taking some getting used to. Not that eating that much food at noon is any problem (hahaha), it is the preparation & planning of that much food at noon that is the problem. Why is my pea brain not making this transition? Dunno? I’m sure it has something to do with staying up late & getting up between 8:30 and 9:30, then handling raw meat & chopping onions within the first 2-3 hours of the day. Yuck. Somehow, I don’t seem to mind the late night hours….not one bit.
My dear MIL is not feeling so well these days. Please keep her in your prayers as she continues her battle with cancer.
Aahhhkkk, time to handle some raw meat……TTFN!
K-I am baaack….one more picture of our latest DIY home projects. Now hanging a ceiling fan with one’s husband can damage a marriage. I’ve heard hanging wallpaper can actually make or break the relationship and thus, shall never be attempted at the Wolfe Den. Nevertheless, we overcame & our homeschool room fan is fully operational and pleasing to my eye. Definitely brightens this dreary paneled room!
Potato Head say “HI!”
