Checking In

Hello dear friends! I thought since I have a moment I would write a quick post. My daughter Kaitlyn is doing better today. She was on Tamiflu for five days. Her fever was down and is staying down. I don't know if she will have energy to go to youth group tonight though.
Miranda my oldest is here. She is the one who was on a YWAM mission  overseas and she has been back in the states a couple of weeks now. She is exhaussted and happy to back in the American soil.

I finished one dishcloth using regular crocheting. I also finished a tunisian crocheted dishcloth. Both look a little weird because of mistakes made along the way but they are functional. I will post a picture of them in another post.

Currently I'm working on a potholder plus I'm trying out crocheting a doily. I have never used crochet thread before and my goodness! It's so weird to work with and using a steel crochet hook is even  weirder! But it's fun! I will post a picture of that one in progress when I g…

Busy This Week

I will be busy this week. My youngest daughter has a bad case of the flu so I'm going to be Doctor/Nurse Mom and also my oldest daughter is coming this week for Easter. Hopefully
I won't be around much. I will try to find time in the evening for visiting if possible.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today
Looking Out My Window.. It's actually looking and feeling like spring!
I'm thinking... I should type this post really fast before my internet goes away!
I'm thankful ... we are getting spring finally.
One of my favorite things... is Tea Time Magazine with a cup of tea!
I am wearing ... a jumper with white shirt, a white hanging veil and slippers
I am creating... a crocheted dishcloth in honor of National Crochet Month
I am reading... Fragrant Whiffs of Joy by Dorcas Smucker. It takes me awhile to get through a book because I get so busy. I started this book a few months ago.

I am hoping... my internet will continue to work while I'm  writing this post.

I'm  learning... how to do tunisian crocheting  which use a hook with a stopper on the end like knitting needle. I'm also learning double ended crocheting which uses a crochet hook that has a hook at both ends.
In the kitchen... are a couple of bags of d…

Internet Issues

Hello Friends,
Just letting you know I'm having internet issues  today where it comes and goes. I will be replying to comments and writing a new post. Hopefully, my internet will have resolved itself by the end of the day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here's a cutie we found at Dollar Tree.
I'm also experimenting with trying to crochet some sorry looking shamrock garland. The fabric is my dress.
In the crockpot is corned beef and cabbage. When I married Tim, I had to learn to make and like corned beef and cabbage. I'm a better fan of it now than when were first got married. Our daughters all love it!

Being Martha When We Want to Be Mary

Hello dear friends! I apologize for my absence. I've been busy the past few days.  Anyways, I'm here!
Okay so I'm sure you are all familiar with the passage from Luke 10:38-42. Jesus has come to Martha and Mary's house.  Mary is sitting at the feet of Jesus while poor Martha is busy trying to serve a proper meal to Jesus. She complains to Jesus that Mary isn't helping her. Jesus responds beautifully  in verse 41-42 "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

Now I have to admit, when I first read this passage many years ago, I sided with Martha. I thought that Mary was being rude and she needed to help her sister. I mean Jesus is your Guest and shouldn't you be practicing hospitality?

How many of us have felt like Martha in our quiet time with the Lord? I know I have. I have found myself becoming a clock watcher lately and t…

Training Our Children

Prov 22:6 says "Train up a child, in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
I like to watch various court cases on YouTube because I find the judicial system interesting and how laws vary from state to state. Disclaimer: I discovered over the weekend that some cases are fake after looking up a case between a mother and daughter one particular court show that seemed rather "off" and discovered they were scripted  almost word per word from the 1959 movie  "Imitation of  Life" but that's not the topic of this post.

One of the shows I've been watching in the past week has been Judge Judy. Judge Judy Schedlin is a very tough judge and it would be hard for anyone to pull the wool over her eyes. She's served in criminal and family court.
Lately the cases I've watched have been ones involving teens and their parents. In almost all the cases, the parent denies any wrongdoing from their son or daughter. They believe w…
