One Thing After Another

You know that saying "when it rains, it pours". My SIL is dealing with that kind of thing at the moment. She's very unwell right now. Another in a long line of medical problems. It's people like her that make you wonder "Why God?". If you've a mind to, would you mind praying for her and her young family?

Our own version of one thing after another comes in the form of plain old busy-ness. It seems like a million things fill my mind ~ some of them enjoyable projects I want to get to, others are the of the responsibilities and day to day goings-on of a family. I think I'm wishing for an extra measure of time to get to it all! I don't want to leave anything behind because even the things that "need" to be done are enjoyable. Or maybe I just need the ability to focus my mind and organise myself a little better LOL.

Last night I sat and knitted while watching telly in that time before bed where I just can't 'do' another thing. I'm looking forward to that project being completed, as there's a crocheting one I'd like to begin! I desperately want to finish my current stitchery so I can begin on the 'Verandah Views' blocks.

See what I mean? So much I want to do and not enough hours in the day! Hopefully tonight I'll be able to catch up on my very most favourite blogs as well!

Hi Tracy!
Yes, I have way too many things that I want to do too! And do I really have to tidy up all the camping stuff before I can quilt? Sigh!
This should give you a link to my quilting blog. I've posted some pictures of what I got done on the weekend, including the new crochet project :)
It was so lovely to spend some more time with you this weekend. I really enjoyed our chats :)

Hey Trac - Steve mentioned your SIL last night. Sorry to hear about her.

On busyness, do I mention that I have received an ARC of Amy Clipston's A Gift of Grace, the first in her Kauffman Amish Bakery series????!!!!!

Yes, yes, yes! I do understand! I'm right with you, Sister!

Tracy said...

I really enjoyed our weekend of chatting too Joy. I'm going to check out your pictures in just a tick. I can't wait to see how you did with that crocheting.

Of course you do Rel!!!! There must always be time for Amish stories, in one's life!

LITM, I know how you understand after reading your post yesterday. Big Hugs to you. My rush of activity seems insignificant compared to your daily routine.

What? You mean you can't knit, crochet, spin, stitch AND look after your family all at the same time? Shame on you! lisa x

Tracy said...

LOL Lisa...nup. But I can stitch really well when I'm left in peace!
