It is very cold outside!!! Yikes! I opened the door to hand Ben and Grace the pig food and was smacked by Jack Frost!
Sitting inside with the heat cranked up and sipping on some Chai tea. Yummy. Ben, Gracie and I made Pumpkin Muffins this morning. I had some leftover brown sugar and cinnamon topping. So, I put it in my Chai Tea with some fresh cream. Yummy!
Pumpkin Muffin recipe was very good and very easy!
God has sent me the sweetest gift in the form of a customer. Her name is Kelli and she is an awesome photographer! She happened upon my shop in ETSY and voila! She is a source of encouragement for me right now. Thank You, Lord, for sending her my way!
Speaking of my shop, I have created some great holiday yarns, and have sold most of them! This one, will be a particular challenge for someone, but I can't wait to see something knitted from it!
I also had some really great customers come into my shop last weekend. I am working on a baby bootie and hat set for a little boy. I need to get started spinning this alpaca I have had for 3 months also! She should have never told me she didn't need it until Christmas! I also have some llama from this same customer that smelled like stinky socks, but with a few months of being left outside, I think it's much better now. I'm considering rinsing it in a lavendar rinse, but then it may smell like stinky feet soaked in lavender! I also want to delve into that box of Shetland that my mom sent to me and I have a box of Angora goat fiber that my cousin sent! Wow! I am so blessed!!!!!!!!!!
I am taking the Fall challenge present by Courtney at Women Living Well. I have my candle lit to remind us, particularly me, to be peaceful in word and deed. I have cleared off my clutter area - a countertop in the kitchen, and am working on a filling a big box for donation to Habitat for Humanity! I hate clutter, but I have so much of it! Clutter = Chaos and that produces stress and no peace! So, check out the challenge. This is a great blog, too.
Grace and Ben are doing great in homeschool. Grace, in particular, really enjoys it and doesn't want to stop! UI am using Rod and Staff with her - the ABC series. She gets to start speech therapy in 4 more weeks! She told me the other day when we were practicing saying a word, "I can hear it, but I can't say it!" She is doing much better though.
Ben is doing his final project in the Thomas Kincaid art class he's been taking. He put together a still life that says something about him. Here it is:
Well, I need to get back to homeschool and back to spinning!!
May God rain down His incredible blessings on each of you!
