I must apologize for the extremely LONG delay on any new posts! My thoughts have been occupied in other areas besides crafting and baking because….
Yeah! Bret and I are both excited, but a little wary, because of past experiences. And I was put on bedrest on Wednesday. Tomorrow we go to have a sonogram, and we are hopeful that the doctor will have a better understanding of what’s going on then. We have been strengthened and sustained by the Prince of Peace. I have actually not minded this time; my husband has taken great care of me, and my sister came to entertain me this weekend.
You’d think I would have done a lot of crafting while lying here, but I really have not wanted to! I don’t know why at all, in fact, I’m a little surprised at it myself. Baking has been pretty much out of the question, since its a feat of terrific self-control to even get dinner ready without wanting to throw up. My poor plants are probably whithered away from neglect. So, the things that I mostly write about here, have not been taking up very much of my life lately.
I have, in the past 6 days, read FIVE books! Yep! And I really only started reading on Thursday. I reread “The Pilgrim’s Regress” by C.S. Lewis. Its somewhat his own spiritual biography, in an allegorical form, modeled loosely after Pilgrim’s Progress. Then I read 3 books that were loaned to me by a friend: “The Shepherd of the Hills” about love and goodness in the backwoods Ozarks, “Heidi” the tale of a little girl from the Alps, and “Miracle of Miracles” which is a true story of salvation out of Islam in Iran. The last book was “David Copperfield” by Charles Dickens. I enjoyed the book, but not as much as “The Pickwick Papers”, which I read earlier this semester. I think “The Pickwick Papers” was written earlier in Dickens’ career, and it is funnier and lighter than “David Copperfield”. But I liked them both, which is a change for me, because I used to not like Dickens that much.
