More yummy candy. I have always liked the marshmallow candies that are covered in chocolate, but I rarely have them for myself. I would buy them for the kids Easter baskets and Christmas stockings though.
This is the back of the sweater that I’m working on. I have finally gotten it past the beginning of the arm holes! First off, don’t worry. It’s not a problem with your eyes. I’m sorry the photo is a little blurry. I didn’t take it until almost 9:30 at night and since our sun sets well before 4:00 in the afternoon now, it was pretty dark inside. Turning on the overhead lights just makes everything glare. Right now we only have about seven hours of daylight and I don’t always remember to take my photos during that amount of time. I apologize. We make up for it in the summertime though when it doesn’t get dark until about 10 and the sun is up shining again by 4 in the morning. I love the summers here. Anyway, the back of the sweater is almost finished. I only have about four more inches to go before I shape the back of the neck and start the front.
I had a very quiet day today. It was so cold this morning when I woke up. I took Chloe for her walk about 7 am and then came back home and put my jammies back on and climbed back into bed where I read blogs and wrote some emails. It was nice and toasty warm there under the quilts. Afterwards, I did a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned the RV. I had the afternoon to knit on the sweater back. I have to admit, cleaning this RV is much easier than cleaning that four bedroom house and leaves me a lot more time to knit and crochet.
I’m also doing a virtual Bible study with some ladies from our church. We all watch the video together on Zoom and then there are lessons every day in a workbook that we do on our own. It’s called the armor of God and it’s by Patricia Shirer. I’m finding it fascinating based on the things happening in our world today. She wrote this several years ago, but it’s so appropriate.
How are you all holding up out there? I pray for you all every day to be safe and healthy. I heard this afternoon about one of the ladies who I’ve watched on her podcasts for quite some time. She was rushed to the hospital today and admitted with a problem with her esophagus and she is in very serious condition. Her name is Kayla and she is such a sweetheart. She has Raynauds and various other health issues and could really use your prayers. As we were told, it will take a miracle for her to be okay. She has lost half of her fingers from Raynauds and she still does the most beautiful crochet work you can imagine. She is a believer and would love to have your prayers.💜
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you a story. I had just driven back into our spot at the RV park this morning after dropping some mail in the drop box at the post office. Just before I got out of the car I happened to glance back for some reason. About 15 feet away from me there was a wolf staring right at me! Now, I was in the car with the door shut, but I think my heart stopped for a minute! As I sat there pondering what to do, three more wolves came out of the woods behind him and they all trotted right past my car, through our campsite and up the road. I waited a minute or two and then I jumped out of the car and ran to the RV, unlocked the door and slammed it behind me. I didn’t take Chloe outside for quite some time after that. I have never seen wolves around here and I thought they were found more in Montana. I have seen black bear, brown bear, mountain lions, cougar and deer in our campsite at the lake, and even the odd coyote. But never a wolf. That shook me up a little bit. They are beautiful creatures though. They look so proud and strong and they stare right at you with their piercing eyes. That was my excitement for the day. That was enough.
Take care and enjoy the beauty of the day around you. There is ALWAYS beauty if we look.
Blessings and love,
