This is Lydia by the way ;0) You probably noticed with all the ":-)" I like to do:-) :-)
Interesting experiment #2 ~ Skirt with not-actually-so-impossible-to-work-with flowy fabric
I have been anxious to see what that skirt pattern that I have liked so much would look like with light and extremely thin fabric. I found this materiel buried in that big pile, and thought I'd give it a go. Although it was different, and a little tricky, everything went just fine.
Well, here it is. The hem and elastic still need to be done. I'm putting that off until tomorrow. I hope it doesn't look too much like something you would only wear to a funeral...in that case I hope I won't be wearing it anytime soon...
Interesting experiment #3 ~ A basic white bread with blueberries and cinnamon
Perseverance, most easily said, not done,
Is keeping your promises, to the very last one.
It is determination to finish the task,
Only your best, that’s all I can ask.
In spite of discouragement,
To keep on trying,
In spite of failure,
And hope that is dying.
To endure through the trials,
And stand strong in the fight,
To bear it to the end,
And always do what’s right.
Never loose your courage,
Ask God to take away your stress,
Failure leads to learning,
Which then leads to success.
Grow from bad experiences;
Do not give up hope,
Perseverance is a choice,
And God will help you cope.
Work hard with patience,
Be diligent in all,
Though you may be ridiculed,
Listen only to His call.
Mr. Holborn came to get us at 4:45, and we had a WONDERFUL time at their house WITH the Jerkes. It was a pleasant surprise to be able to spend the evening with them as well. The meal was delicious, followed by homemade blackberry pie.
Well, that's it for now folks, hope you enjoyed it! Love you and miss you all dear family! Give Timmy and Joe a bunch of hugs and kisses for me!
Hey everyone this Caroline. Hope everybody had a good day on the road!
Well as you know I am the not as good of a journalist as Lydia so what I write will probably sound pretty dumb. Like I am just listing off stuff that I did today (so be prepared to get bored). :o)
Well anyway, I slept in to about 8:15ish, I guess it wasn't really sleeping in for me though. ( By the way Lydia is CRAZY waking up at 4;30 every morning!) I then went downstairs and enjoyed Berry Colosal Crunch for breakfast. Yummy! Thanks Mommy!
Then I went outside to feed the goats, spit face, and the other llama. And took Sunny along to go cut down some Alder branches for the goats to eat.
I then worked on some math for about an hour and a half or so. ( Just because I love it so much. :o) Then I went upstairs and tried to memorize more of Psalms 119. ( I would really like memorize the whole chapter.) After that, I started another book.
I then ate tuna fish for lunch and of course a slice of Lydie's yummy bread with LOTS of butter on it. Then Lydie and I worked on the clothes together, and then looked at some songs to do for church. Then I took a shower. After that I looked up what sugar does and can do to your body. Yikes! Then I practiced piano for about an hour or so. Then did more clothes and finished up the dishes from lunch. Fun! Got ready to go over to the Holborns. Had a good time. Came home and walked the dogs and fed them. Then cleaned up the lovely "present" Anna left us. Did more clothes and played piano for another 30 minutes or so, and here I am now!
Well good night everybody and sweet dreams!
