"Wheresoever we be, whatsoever we are doing... all our work, in our busy daily life, in all schemes and undertakings, in public trusts, and in private retreats, He is with us, and all we do is spread before Him. Do it, then, as to the Lord. Let the thought of His eye unseen be the motive of your acts and words. Do nothing you would not have Him see. Say nothing which you would not have said before His visible presence. This is to do all in His name."
~ Henry Edward Manning

A chalkboard note from Madelyn...

On a rainy day, just-washed rugs are dried on a rack in-doors...

Cinnamon rolls (for the recipe go HERE)...

And my latest knitting project, the berry basket dishcloth...

I watched my nephew, most of the day, yesterday. It was just wonderful. He is a little over a year old and such a fun guy! The children, Madelyn especially, enjoyed him so much! I was so thankful for his naptime, as it gave her time to focus on finishing her schoolwork for the day! ;)

My sister, also, brought my niece over to visit yesterday morning! Oh my! What a treat! My *baby-hoggish self* (as Madelyn likes to call me) enjoyed snuggling littlest Eloise, don't worry~Madelyn got to hold her too! ;) It was just fantastic!

Today will be busy with laundry, housework, schooling, errands and baking! It's gray and rainy no out-of-doors playing, today. Knitting and reading will consume freetime! **And, not to gloat, but it's not even 10am, and I have *already* received a beautiful, just-for-me, love note from one of my children! Oh the joys of simple days!

Have a *great* Wednesday!
He must increase, but I must decrease. ~John 3:30

  8. I always love my visits here. I am curious because I pop in here every now and then do have a particular way you plan for school, housework, and such.

    I would love to add baking, and more fun things into our day. It seems we do good to cover basics.
