Popping House Logs
With popping house logs and smoke filling the house this morning from some sort of backdraft I await the dawn. It is almost forty below this morning thus the logs popping. If I was outside I would hear the trees banging. They sound like shotguns going off when it is this cold. Everything lies still in the beyond crispness of the early morn. Think of it ~~it is warmer in our deep freezer than outside!
Our oldest son and family came out yesterday for supper and a visit. That was fun. Our grandson that I have been making the quilt for got his quilt too as I had finished it. Woo Woo!! If I could turn cartwheels I would believe me.He loves it and I am glad no one who is a professional at quilting sees it. They would freak! Some of the squares don't match up perfectly and the border is a little wider at one side as the quilt top got laid on the backing just off enough to cause problems that way. Don't know why I didn't notice it before but hey He is just a child, just turned seven and to him it is wonderful!! :) And I was making it for him not for a fall fair trophy or some such accolades!
Now to finish up the elephant I want to embroider and stuff and sew together for a VERY late birthday present. Not sure what I will do next. Have different ideas running through my head but would need a little money to buy some bits of material. I may have enough scraps of flannel to make a flannel rag blanket type quilt thing for a gal that is a friend of the family and having her first baby any day now. We shall see. I have to go through my scraps and that is quite the endeavour.
It is potluck supper tonight for our home church service. Have to think up something to make for that. Just got called late yesterday that it would be potluck so kind of caught me by surprise. I will come up with something.
We have had a moose camping out nearby just across the river. I am wondering if she will still be there today or if she has found a warmer bed.
All in all it is cold and it is clear and all is well.
By humility and fear of the LORD
Are riches and honour and life.
