While the children rested and watched a movie, I got some cleaning and baking done yesterday. I made soft pretzels and tried a new recipe for bread!

A lot of baking equals a lot of clean up, afterward! ;)

I believe, in older posts, way back, I may have shown you my Mary Engelbreit bathroom (I love her art...it's so cheerful and happy!). I thought I would share it, today, for any who may have missed it...as it is one of my favorite rooms!

Below, on the wall to the far right, under the hat box, is a cross stitched piece that a dear friend made me. I love it and think of her each time I see it! :)

I read a couple chapters of Little House, to the children yesterday afternoon....and soon, they were all snoozing.

Much rest is needed when your body is fighting a bit of a bug!

I found THIS cute little website that has a lot of fun information about the Little House books and people. HERE is the Little House Family Tree, which I found fun to look at too! I know there are many different links to learn about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family...but I hadn't seen those before, so I wanted to share! :)

Although *still* coughing, the children's fevers seem to have gone down and they have gained a bit more energy! Xavier and I even worked on some schoolwork this morning! Thank you for keeping them in prayer, when led to do so. I so appreciate it! The children will, I assume, still be taking it *slower* today...but I am thankful that they seem to be on the mend. I will continue doing laundry and may make some cinnamon rolls today...I have a new recipe, for them, that I would like to try. :)

I hope you have an enjoyable day. Thank-you for stopping to visit!
Katy :)

  10. Hello Katy,
    Glad to hear your little ones have turned the corner. Lots of nasties around our part of Australia at present. Perhaps it is something to do with the change of season.
    Would love to get your recipe for Cinnamon Rolls if it works out well. I've always wanted to try those.
    Have a lovely day.

    Blessings Gail
