Flowering Tea Pot

Thank you so much for giving me feedback on work! I took to heart every comment and felt richer for your input.  I just finished Becoming Elisabeth Elliot (thank you for the recommendation, Kim!) and her life was such a picture of work.  She (and other people) said to do the next thing which is excellent counsel, I think.

I know it sounds a bit shallowšŸ¤£ but one thing I am thinking about this morning is moving the family room furniture so that my "lazy spot" isn't so accessible.  Do you have a lazy spot?  I tend to study my Bible, knit, FaceTime, text, nap, snack, drink coffee, and write in the lazy spot, so I'll push myself and change it up a bit.  

I have a new mug obsession, Emma Bridgewater.  This isn't good because we can't buy them here, so you have to order them and that costs more than buying other mugs.  Oh well.  It will keep me from hoarding.

Look closely.  Can you see Bigfoot?  He's there and he's cold. We are having a solid winter here in Colorado.
Brad and April gave me this heart cup last year and this year they gave me a flowering teapot.  Isn't it pretty?  You place a ball of tea in the water and it blooms!  Lovely!

I share my heated throw with this one.  He loves to be warm.  It's his goal. 
I know I should purge our house of some of my favorite things but right now I am crazy about Beatrix Potter stuff and Little Women, so that's what's on the mantle.  I am going to Jenny's to stay with kids and dogs for 5 days and we are going to do Little Women things like talk about the book, have devotions, play with paper dolls, eat lime jelly beans, make soap and make beeswax candles.  I will take photos. Oh, and we might make gnomes because Christie and Jeff gave me a "make your own gnome" kit and even though it's not Little Women-y, it sounds fun, doesn't it?
My work today entails a bit of shopping, church, cooking, moving furniture, gathering things for my granny visit, maybe some ironing and reading. What have you been doing that you've really enjoyed?  Thank you for popping in to say hello, friend.
