One of my good friends and I were texting back and forth about the Eloise Wilkin books. I gathered mine (on the ironing board) and sent her this picture. I realized I didn't have We Help Mommy and We Help Daddy (I'm sure our children wore them out) so I ordered them. My friend Kristi ordered We Help Mommy. I tried to read We Help Daddy to the two and three year olds yesterday at Bible study, but they were distracted and basically not interested😂. We decided that we love the houses, the rooms, in the stories and we'd like our houses to look exactly like Mrs. Wilkin's illustrations. What do you think? I remember enjoying the pages just as much as my copies of Country Living when I read them to our kids.
It's cozy around here this morning. I made a coffee cake. Right now Timothy is downstairs on the spare bed, sleeping on top of a big pile of comforters and quilts. The heat is on so he'll stay down there under the ceiling vent. He'll sleep there for hours. I would like to stay home all day. I'll go for a walk and listen to Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher. I'm just about finished (I've read it several times). I resisted Audible for the longest time, but I am enjoying it so much. Yay!
I'm making a red sock. I am knitting so many things. I love knitting so many things☺️at once.
I just might move some furniture around today. We moved our bed from under the window to beside the window. I get to sleep near the window and I LOVE cold air coming in and I love seeing the moon. Anyway, I must shift my night table/cabinet now. It's going in the living room, so our old scruffy wing chairs will probably be relocated. Isn't that always the way? In order to move one thing, another thing must be moved and then all the floors must be swept and mopped, and this takes lots of time and that's when I want to take a nap.
When I don't know what to do first, I iron. That's what I'm going to do now. Bye bye, sweet reader!
