Tonight in our family worship, Mark read about Ahab's coveting Naboth's vineyard. I was so convicted about being content with what I have. I am continually finding new books for me or the kids, various hs'ing misc, beautiful yarns, fabric, etc. that I'd like to have a little of....
Sigh. God help me not to be GREEDY. It helps when I call it what it is.
On another note! I have a new flower garden in the kitchen this morning....isn't it lovely? They insisted that I make one, too. Rather appropriate for May Day. Things I learned...C is pretty picky. We must have pulled petals off and re-glued half a dozen times before I made her stop. J took his time and did his very best. This did wonders for mommy. I have great hope that our tribulations over the state of his room/handwriting, etc will pass. T was happy with his orange crayon-about halfway through, he noticed the others were using green for the leaves and he made the switch to conform. I am surprised by this. B colored enthusiaistically but was rather surprised by the result. Note to self-instead of taking it away from him to finish it up, HELP HIM TO DO IT.
I'm turning the heel on C's socks. The variegated yarn is completely charming-I'll post pics in my next post when there's more to see. I also did a tiny bit of spinning over the weekend-more of the Corriedale from Rising Meadow Farm. I will not be combing this carded prep. At last, I have found a roving that I like! Alert the media.
