This Week …

It’s feels strange not to be doing my 52 weeks of blessings post, especially when my heart is saying that I should continue.  I’m still going back and forth but in the meantime, here’s some stuff that made me happy this week:

  • Rainy days which make for perfect crafting days.
  • A surprise in the mail from my online buddy Lauren.  I’m sure all the crafters reading this can attest to how great it feels having someone send you a hand knit!  It’s soft, delectable and I absolutely love it!!!
  • Got ready for the return of Downton Abbey with homemade scones.  Best ones I’ve made ever!!!!  And of course, there was tea!!!!
  • My new W.I.P basket.  The message on the front of it makes it even more special to me since crafting really does make me happy.
  • Hearing from my Dr. that my blood sugar is back to normal.  I’m not pre-diabetic anymore.  In another six months, I can come off meds.  Thank God for that!

    The message on your wip basket it so on point and I love it.
    That is wonderful news about your meds and I am looking forward to the post when you say you are done with them! My father was a diabetic and both my sisters are pre diabetic so it’s something I watch closely.
    I have yet to see an episode of Downton Abbey, but I do have a knitting magazine for the show. I love all the beautiful clothes and think I would like the show if I can ever remember to just sit down and watch an episode.

      Thank you Tracey. It was really something to hear from my Dr. about those meds and my condition. Hearing the news made every struggle worthwhile and it’s pushing me to do even more.

      I think you’ll absolutely love Downton Abbey. Based on your interests, I think it’ll be right up your alley. Let me know if you ever watch it. 😀

    Very glad to hear the good news about coming off of the meds. I remember that from ages ago (we’ve been friends for a long time, wow). 🙂

      Chile … I’m so ready to be done with these meds … 😀 Thanks for all your support over the years. We’ll throw a party the day I get off! 😀

    What a beautiful scarf! Can I have some cookies they look amazing!

      It really is and the pictures don’t do it justice!

      The foodie shot are actually scones and you’re welcome to have some if you like those. 😀

      It is indeed half full; I didn’t think of it that way so thank you for that reminder!

      Happy New Year to you too Pearl. From your blog posts, sounds like your year is off to an amazing start! 😀

    Love that basket and the message. The scones look lovely and that scarf is gorgeous! 🙂

    Also, I hope you do continue the 52 weeks posts. I loved those and kudos on getting your blood sugar down. Very happy to hear that you are healthier and your eating habits are paying off.

      You’re always so encouraging. Thanks for everything Ash. ♥

      Yes … that scarf is truly gorgeous. The pictures don’t do it justice.
