Another week, another trip to the doctor. No, life isn't like that for us, but I believe we have been to the doctor's office more times this month than all of last year! I took Kyle back to the doctor because he can't stop coughing, and it has been two weeks since his first trip and round of steroid. So this week continued breathing treatments around the clock and trying to do school work around all the medicine and treatments. This is for the week of Nov. 15 - 21.
Sunday: We all stayed home from church because most of the kids were coughing and/or sniffling. Adrian wasn't feeling wonderful either, so we all listened to the worship service while sitting beside the fire in the fireplace and sipping on warm tea! I am thankful such a quiet and calm Lord's Day! I am thankful for being able to be still in such a hectic time in life.
Monday: I took Kyle back to the doctor and also to the chiropractor, so I didn't manage to take a picture. This is a picture of my HUGE pot of chicken soup simmering on the stove. I am thankful for warming healing soup. I thankful for being able to cook such good food!
Tuesday: I am thankful for a clean table! It can't just be my family, but it seems that ever flat surface is a magnet for stuff. I think especially if it is a clean flat surface, it must cry out to be covered. I clean off flat surfaces, turn around, and then look again, and the surface is a mess. So I am thankful that this table is clear (even if it is only for 5 minutes)!
Wednesday: I am thankful for finishing a special project! I am one who loves to start new projects, but struggles to finish them. I am glad that I followed through and finished this one!
Thursday: I took pictures today of my special project. I can't post those pictures though because the final project has not gotten to it's final home yet. Once it makes it's way home, I'll update this post with that picture. You will just have to trust me that the picture looks nice!
(Update: Now that this quilt has been sent and received, I can share my picture. This quilt is made from shirts that belonged to my grandpa and my grandma's second husband. The top (picture here) is all shirts from O'dell, and the back is made from shirts from my grandpa and the rest is filled out with a beautiful sheet that has a great sheen to it. My grandma got the quilt in the mail and was really happy with the quilt. I hope it brings back good memories of both of her husbands as it did for me while making it.)
Friday: I am thankful for cousins that are the same age. We watched Megan's kids so they could have a date night. The little girls played with horses and stuffed animals, the middle kids watched a movie, and the oldest two played Net Runner. They all had a good time and were well behaved!
Saturday: I am thankful for this little girl and her golden curls and her love of pink.
