And it rained...

...and it is *still* raining as I type. It's a slower day today. Rain does that to us, doesn't it? Gives us a reason to slow down. The children and I have found plenty to do though! Today, we took summer clothes from their dresser drawers and replaced them with the fall/winter clothes that had been neatly tucked away during the warmer weather. Now all summer items (that will still fit next year) are folded and stored till the weather turns warm again, next spring.

Napkins were freshly pressed and folded...

We have worked on schooling...

Much needed *rest* was gotten this afternoon, after a delicious lunch of chicken salad sandwiches (on homemade buns...yum!) and salad...

And I had a little time to work on my knitting. I am working on a baby blanket.

It's my *own* pattern. :) It's the first pattern I have ever made. It's going pretty well, so far! :)
When I am finished...I will share the pattern with you, if you would like!

I hope you are enjoying your Thursday...rain or shine, as well! :)
Planning on making meatloaf for supper, this evening! Always a favorite in our house!
Warm wishes to you!
Katy :)

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
~Numbers 6:24-26

  11. It rained here the other night and all day yesterday looked like it would rain but instead got windy and was truly a fall day.

    My kiddos and I have been so sick all week that we have taken naps each day and it has felt so good.

  12. Can't wait to see the finished baby blanket! It looks lovely so far with soothing colors.

  13. Katy,

    I am a new follower of your blog. I love reading about you and your family. I homeschooled my four for fourteen years - now I homeschool "vicariously" through blogs such as yours. I loved the pic of your little one napping. How precious that he can be in the warmth and security of home, resting with the sound of the rain on the roof, rather than being weary in the chaos of a public school classroom. Children NEED rest and rejuvenation, as we all do. I will enjoy checking back in on you!

  14. I love rainy days :) Being from PA as well I know how welcoming the rain was on this day because of the lack of rain we've been dealing with...the rain was so refreshing :)

May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
