I still use my camera often, and here's a little peek at what our weekend held.
Enjoying the last few days of Fall's warmth before the cold sets in.
A surprise gift from in my mail box from a friend.
Funny Story: My hubby called Friday while I was at work and said (in a very confused tone), "I think Wes bought you a book."
Me: "What? Why? Wait. Which book?"
Hubby: "I don't know--some quilting book."
Me: "BETH!! It was Beth. She bought me the book!"
Thank you, Beth! (Her hubby's name was on the Amazon return address.)
"Dr. Marvin, look, I'm quilting!"
I sent an email to my mom and sisters with the above quote. Have you seen "What About Bob?" If not, that will make no sense--sorry.
Quilting Della's gift.
Starting the binding process
Nearly-finished binding. I just have to hand-sew it to the back.
(This is the part of quilting that has always scared me. I don't hand-sew anything, but I need to put on my big-girl pants and just do it.)
Not included in pictures:
Lots of time with the hubby and baby;
Lunch with friends Sunday;
Reminder to be aware and weary of my grumbling;
Catching up on much-needed house cleaning;
The grief and praise that combine in the death of a very wonderful family friend who is now celebrating with her Savior a life well-lived and battle well-fought.
It is here, caught in the middle of the mundane and the extraordinary, that I live in gratitude for all the good gifts I am given.
