Hearth and Home

I know I have not blogged very much lately. Please accept my apologies. I mean, what is there to blog about? I have yet another meal of baked potatoes in the oven for my family. How exicitng is that? Not very.

I've been sewing some small things here and there, and starting to teach the older girls how to use the sewing machine. Today B made herself (with my help and guidance) a cute little head scarf like the Cecily style at Garlands of Grace. Except the fabric is differnt, of course.

I've been busy making some snoods for a give away at my other blog, and of course keeping house and guiding the kids with their school work.

Not much to write about there. Things are quiet, simple and...well, quiet and simple.

Had a house full of relatives for this weekend, and we all went to the Zoo. And I did lots of cooking. I think I take after my grandmother. I didn't get to eat any of it, because of the whole low carb thing, but I survived. Made some extra yummy soup just for me today, as I've been feeling bored with the usual salad routine.

See, still not much to blog about.

So, that's been me lately. I need to get my head together and figure out what goodies belong in our Pascha basket this year. Bethany wants honey sweetened coconut macaroons from whole foods instead of a birthday cake. That, I can do. Her birthday is on Pascha this year. How cool is that?

Wes promised to take me to the mall to go Easter dress shopping this weekend. I dread that. Pain, agony and despair.

So, there. Still nothing much to blog about.

I love your new photo at the top of your blog. And, as always, I'm proud of your steadfastness. I need to take lessons from you in how to keep a home!

I agree with Elizabeth - quiet and simple is vey very good!

I agree, I find myself withdrawing inside myself these waning days of Lent and Holy Week every year. It's ok.

Congratulations on teaching your daughters to sew. Let me know about purchasing a snood or two from you, I'd love to.

Hey Mimi, what colors do you like? I find that a poly cotton broadcloth works very well for a plain solid color. I can embellish with lace or ribbon (is that even your style???? I have doubts), or use a printed fabric.

Let me know what you like. I think fifteen dollars each would cover production time, shipping and fabric cost fairly well.

Sounds fantastic - I like the white in the lovely video I'm watching right now and a sage green would be pretty too.

And, yes, I like lace and ribbon. Sounds fantastic.

You have my email, yes?

Hi Mimi,

actually I don't have your e-mail.
