Seventh was a day of rest. I took the day to catch my breath and reflect on celebrating on preparing my heart for this season. I have been listening to a series done in 2007 by Charles Swindoll. They have been very insightful and I believe I can somewhat like Mary, ponder these things within my heart. On the seventh day, we reflected the reason for Advent.
On the 8th day, I made my neice a skirt, somewhat like teh one pictured below. Since that was a better picture, I used that one.
On the ninth day, I caught up on orders, knitted some more on my BIL’s scarf, and started cross-stitching bookmarks. The days are very busy. I’m still constantly rushing here and there. I have 2 parties to attend to this weekend. One is a cookie exchange, and the other is a dedication of a farm and a birthday celebration. Needless to say, the oven will be keeping us warm, holiday music shall be heard in every corner of the house, wrapping paper is strewn everywhere…and I love it all.
