I am Recovering from Covid


I want you to  know that I am recovering well from Covid. My doctor prescribed iv antibodies. The treatment helped my body to fight the virus. I'm still taking things slowly because I get short of breath. I also get tired easily. 

But God! 

God has taken wonderful care of me and my family. All four of us who live here at the cottage have had Covid. We are all doing very well. We have been quarantined for almost a month. I wanted togive you an update and tell you I should be back to blogging early next week. 

Thank you all very much for your prayers. You have been so faithful to pray for us. I am blessed with wonderful blog friends. 

God bless you all. 


P.S. These are the socks I knit during quarantine. They will get a good wash!

Advice From Marmee

Michael and Me
14 and I'm not telling!

"Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success, in spite of poverty." ~Louisa May Alcott Marmee's Advice in Little Women

I've got to get this figured out and fast!  
I'm too busy to do the important things right now!

Tired... Prayer Request

 🚲 Why can't a bicycle stand alone?

It's two tired. 😴

I am too tired. My family has been fighting covid since the end of June. I got my diagnosis yesterday. Given my history of cancer and pneumonia among other things, the dr sent me to get IV antibodies today. 

You all were so good to pray me through cancer. I wanted to share this with you so that you could pray my family through covid.

My eldest daughter is over it. My second daughter has a very mild case. My husband is almost over it. And by faith I'm getting better. Still waiting for that to manifest. Smile.

Just wanted you to know what's going on. I probably will not blog until I'm well.

I will live and not die and declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Thank you. God bless you all.

The Beginner's Bible Learn Your Numbers

The Beginner's Bible Learn Your Numbers 

I received a surprise from UPS today. It was this cute little board book from Zonderkidz. It's one of their newest releases for this summer. The Beginner's Bible Learn the Numbers is a board book, but it is intended for preschoolers or kindergartners not babies.

The focus is on counting the animals or people, then writing the numerals and learning how to spell the numbers. 

It is a handwriting practice book to be used with the included dry erase marker. It would be good for moms who want to teach their children the numbers as part of homeschooling or before going on to a school setting. It has cute illustrations and bright colors.

Carrying an Atmosphere ~ J.R. Miller

“Everyone carries an atmosphere about him. It may be healthful and invigorating, or it may be unwholesome and depressing. It may make a little spot of the world a sweeter, better, safer place to live in; or it may make it harder for those to live worthily and beautifully who dwell within its circle.” 
~J.R. Miller~
May I suggest?
