I went out for my morning walk with Boots our dog, (1/2 poodle 1/2 shih tzu) and watched the sunrise come up over the mountains here in Logandale. It is just so breathtakingly beautiful here at sunrise and sunset-- and I love early mornings.
I have ward choir practice at 9 this morning, and then back home for a few hours before our ward meets at 1 pm.
I need to type up a little list of things we need for CRAFTING ANGELS before I go at 1 too... hoping to get some donations for the newborn kits, because I sure cannot make that many hats, and shirts--and I am not about to try making soap before the 21st! LOL My specialty is actually booties, but we have plenty of those on hand thanks to some generous crafters across the country who sent them for last month when we put together - I think it was 42 kits maybe? My friend Bobbi and I delivered those a few weeks ago on the way to the Vegas Temple to go do a session.
This week I need to get a blanket mailed to my friends in Denmark who just adopted a newborn baby girl, so I need to get that boxed up and ready to mail on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Somehow I also need to keep on my kids about keeping the house clean, as it is on the market to sell. Long story... basically my husband's 'superiors' decided to yank him out of this store, and put him in another store 200 miles north of here, with no time to sell the house - no time to do anything. Happy... we are not...
Not a thing we can do about it. Mike had his last day at the Lin's market here yesterday. People were crying, and hugging him. He is a much loved member of this community, and I really think corporate is making a HUGE mistake but that's their problem, and not ours anymore. Mike will do his best no matter what and keep smiling. :)
Back to charity crafting!
Winter will soon be upon us, after a scorching summer to say the least, and kids will need warm mittens. I have just the pattern for beginners, for advanced crocheters, for anyone!
They are really easy to make I promise, and so needed in the winter months. There are links to click on for other patterns like a hat that matches, or a set you can make for preschoolers. You may want to check with your local daycare centers to see if they could use a bunch for the kids... now is the time to make them too.
Well, I'd better go get ready for choir. I have having a bit too much fun writing on this blog! Please tell your friends about it too, as I am really into holidays and might just have to post some recipes and such for those too.
