"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

ordinary extraordinary days









Our days are quickly rushing by... the days with our Montana girl.  Our house is always full of girly sounds but this past week it's been in stereo.  Lots of giggles and squeals.  Did you know that 14 year olds will still giggle and squeal at just about anything when they are in the mood?  We have nothing impressive on the calendar for her last days with us, just being together as they do what we always do making ordinary things seem extraordinary.  There is talk about her stealing Audrey home with her.  I've threatened to keep her.  Both of these seem like viable options... to them.




On the needles, my One Pound Baby Jacket is coming along beautifully.  I ran out of yarn once again, having to whip up another skein.  After waiting for it to dry I quickly used it up and now need to spin the last ounce and a half of the full pound.  It should be just about right.  All I have left is to bind off the front, stitch the hood to the back neckline and crochet around the front adding button loops.  I'm loving it!  



Blessings, Debbie

  2. I am so glad there are happy squeals in your home and the girls are getting to spend this time together.
    I had 'forgotten' girls squeal until the wee one came along and I heard that sound again!

  4. Nothing wrong with fouteen year old squeals! :) Much to be preferred over 14-years olds tears.

    Have a happy day. ...Marsha

  5. Can't wait to see the jacket - sad thing is that whatever baby gets the treasure will not get to wear it until next winter!!

  11. Wow ~ how nice to be able to just "whip up more yarn when you need it" ! I have three girls, two of which are two years apart...they have the same friends which is so nice ~ so know all about those "giggles". Just wondering...were you participating in the horse show or spectating? Looks like fun no matter what!

  12. Oh, that yarn looks so soft. But how do you not go cross eyed?

  13. Just whipped up a skein, did you? Just whipped it right up. You amaze and inspire me, and that's no lie. I can't even handle the needling part of knitting with these ten left thumbs. Let's just say that everything I knit ends up looking like a pennant and leave it at that.

    And have I ever mentioned that your girls make me think "peaches and cream"? They do. I love that.
