- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.
The Guardian Angel
Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Simple Woman Daybook Entry
Outside my window...It is wintertime, the first day! The shades of the vibrant red,orange and yellow have been replaced with the starkness of the white snow against the blue gray sky, with only the brown now resting trees gaining energy to produce a beautiful rainbow hue springtime. Oh the glory of nature and the beauty it provides us, just look up..It is all around us. Beauty
is in every thing. God put it there. Look Around !
I am thinking... That the path is being prepared on the heel of my Angel. All is Calm. Unfolding carefully, never to late or to early but right on time.
I am thankful for..Thank you Grace. Grace is my Guardian Angel. She is a real presence in my life, and has a very difficult job with this human. But she is pure love and guides me gently along.
From the kitchen...this week...we are having Hungarian Chicken Paprikash. It is our tradition to have this simple but warm and flavorfull dish on Christmas Eve. I will be preparing this with homemade dumplings, just as my mother, and grandmother did in the same way. By hand. It is what makes me happy.
What I am wearing...my soft comfy clothes, what else is there?
I am creating...perhaps a CAL at Crochet Galore, wonder what lovely Gloria has in store for us? I am ready for some thread crochet. Making something lacy and lovely, how divine is that?
I am going...to be happy, and receive what is given, and share what I have, to be hopeful and diligent, open
I am reading...Spoken from the Heart by Laura Bush, such an elegant classy 1st lady.
I am hoping...and looking forward to the New Year. I love beginnings with prospects of a fresh and new start for everything. Of hopefullness and the freedom to explore and evolve.
I am hearing...the treadmill in the basement, as my dear sweet husband walks for his health, until he can once again go outside and enjoy the nature walks, weather permitting.
Around the house...a little laundry folding, getting things in order, I love being at home..and don't want to be anywhere else. Well, I wouldn't mind being on Sanibel Island looking for sea shells.. Oh the stuff dreams are made of...someday...maybe someday....I will walk the warm beach, with my pail looking for treasures from
the bountiful sea...With my floppy hat and my heart open to sunshine and frest salt air. The water and the waves are a comfort to me. Oops. this was supposed to be a around the house entry....:)
One of my favorite things...Christmas songs which have bells in them, church bells, sleigh bells.
A few plans for the rest of the week: It is Christmas week, what is done is done, relax and enjoy
the Holiday Season, with my sweet husband and two boys.
