It rained today...and we decided it was a good day to just be lazy. Sure, we still did chores and necessary things (like practicing instruments etc.)...but mostly, we watched videos/documentaries to remember the events of September 11, 2001. My boys were not yet born....and Madelyn was only two months old. What a scary time that was for this new mama....
Madelyn and I have done some knitting. The boys have put together legos and supper is in the oven. Later this evening, Madelyn will play the piano and Jaxson the guitar at a local assisted living home. I need to get supper finished...but before I do so, here are a few things to hopefully make you smile, as they do me!
My boys....oh, how they make me smile...a lot! Although they are definitely making my hair turn gray much sooner than I had hoped, they are also *such* a joy in my life!
Below is a card Madelyn made for me when I was under-the-weather. She was actually not feeling well herself but took the time to make *me* a card! Isn't she thoughtful?
As the temperature drops, my time spent knitting goes up! Hooray for getting things accomplished!
Another *must* during the fall months (I decided long ago that autumn starts on September 1st...not a day later!) are candles....the scents and look of the flickering candles against an evening atmosphere brings me such happiness!
I pray your day has been a time of remembrance in whatever way works well for you. For us, it was slow and quiet. Thank you for taking time to stop for a visit.
With a quiet and grateful heart,
