First, Happy New Years (and did I wish you a Merry Christmas?) and Melkam Genna (today is Ethiopian Christmas)
It's been a while, and I admit I enjoyed the break from technology a bit...but here's what I've been up to:
Working on a 1600 Quilt Race with Belle, whose Christmas present was a sewing machine of her own. (More on that next week?)
Reading The Hunger Games. thus, delaying our official start of school. although we're doing a little. don't worry.
Watching the last season of Friday Night Lights with hubby on Netflix but we're being responsible. not like this.
Learning about essential oils...my cousin is sending me a few oils to try. I have a migraine today and wished the peppermint oil was already here. Instead I rubbed Vicks all over my neck and temples, it helped for a moment, but you know for a migraine there's nothing like a dark room and a bed. Do you have any uses for essential oils? Our public library has zero books on the subject. sad.
Praying for my mom. She is recovering from hip surgery again yesterday.
Savoring my Christmas gifts. I feel like I exchanged very few gifts this year (relatively, to past years) yet I received such sweet and thoughtful gifts-like a Norman Rockwell print from my parents' old house, a year's worth of Ann Voskamp's pages printed and bound to record everyday gifts, and a necklace I've worn everyday since it was given to me.
What are you all up to?
