January 24, 2010

Today I'm thankful to see the sunshine once again!  I can't even remember the last time I saw it, and although the temps were a bit colder today, at least we had sunshine!

During Sunday School, Eli "built" words with the alphabet blocks, while I taught the girls about being Fishers of Men.  We had a wonderful fellowship meal after church, and as soon as we all got situated at home, both Eli and Bayleigh started in with . . . "I'm hungry!" 

So I gave them a few oranges to tide them over until dinner time.

I traded my niece for my second table, brought them into the kitchen and scrubbed and oiled them to pieces.  They are both now residing nicely in my retreat.  Just a few more things to sort and put away and my retreat will be finished for the time being.  I need to order seven more cubes, and see if I can find enough old half-pint, wide mouth jars to hold all my ribbons and fibers.  The search has begun!


  1. This will be the second time I'll be commenting on a photo of an orange today and this is the second time a photo of an orange impresses me today.

    The other 2 photos I like, but the blur on the orange photo is lovely especially with the rest of the oranges at the back.

    I'm having problems with your comment page, because I have to go back every now and then to take a look at the photo I'm commenting on.

    Could you please embed the comment under the post itself? Would make life more easier ;)

  2. Thanks so much for the kind comments! And I've fixed the comments, so it's easier to both see and post. Thanks for bringing that to my attention . . . I hadn't even noticed how it was set up.

  3. Perfect! Thank you too for listening ;)
