Tuesday's Take...



I will be taking a small break, Lord willing,
from blogging, commenting, and emailing.
I plan to only take a couple of days
so that I can focus more intently
on some motherhood joys and household duties.
There are a few things I hope to accomplish
before we leave on our mini-trip next week...
I hope to catch up on laundry (to pack),
sew a new dress, make a Renaissance lapbook
with the children, among other things with them. ;o)


They are just SO precious!

What a joy it is to spend our time with them! ;o)

I hope to be able to post by the end of the week.
If you have emailed me or commented,
I hope to respond by the end of the week, also.
Thank you, all, for understanding.



Before I go, I thought I'd share a photo
that Ally took as we were out driving today.
One of the things I love about this state
is, what we refer to as, North Carolina "harvest snow".
When you pass by fields of this,
it blankets the ground like beautiful snow.
I love it!


(just in case you're unsure what it is...

it is cotton) ;o)

I hope y'all enjoy your week!


"Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee."
~ Psalm 116:7

Oh, please do chronicle your lapbook project if you can.

I am not a creatively crafty person, so I really look to others' example.

Enjoy your break! Your blog is a blessing.

Have a wonderful rest and I pray you accomplish whatever you need to in this short time. Blessings, Bren

Do you remember all the cotton fields in Arkansas? They are beautiful and have a lot of history, enjoy your trip as I said in your last blog I can't wait for pictures. My prayers are with you all, be safe,and relax.

Oh my sweet goodness! This photo of the cotton brought back memories of my childhood days living in S.C. I haven't seen real cotton in so many years!

I enjoyed your post about spending the day blessing your home. I chuckled because I can so relate how one thing done makes other things look so dirty so you must continue on to really have that sense of accomplishment.

Enjoy your mini break and your upcoming mini vacation!

I hope you enjoy your break. I love the coffee/take a break graphic you have. Can I ask where you got it?

Take care,
Karen

Grafted Branch ~ I posted our lapbook. I'm not very creative either so I like to start with someone else's idea and then branch off. ;o)
I did enjoy our break. And thank you for your kind words. It blesses me to know that others get a blessing when they visit.
