Today's Creative Ventures...

Knitting Luke's Second Sock and figuring out tonight's dinner. 

My Freshly New Knitted Head Kerchief.
This is the first time I figured out bobbles.  I will post more about this soon too.

Busting my yarn stash....

here is my yarn basket with finished scrappy dish clothes. 
( used up all my odds and ends of craft cotton)

A Sample of my new way of eating. 
( This pic is for you Maria! [o; )

 Are you asking what in the world?  [o=  
For breakfast I eat soaked lacto fermented cooked oats with soaked chia seeds ( nick names vegan fish eggs. [o; ) And raw pumpkin seeds.  I will go more into this later.  But today is a quick and more visual post.

I also had fun playing with my camera  too by taking these pics. 

Being Creative

::right now::


right now...

:: listening...to the thunder and lighting storm outside.
:: plotting...to finish my 2ds second sock and planning out the next knitting project that will bust my yarn stash.  Hmmmm thinking headbands will come next.  For example...HERE.
:: thankful for...all the things getting done on the homestead;  clearing away the piles, raised beds getting cleaned up and prepped, getting things organized inside the home.  Trying to get ready for the family reunion the first week of July. 
:: embracing...the idea of doing another 40 day health experience.  I want to start it when the salad greens and cooking greens are really growing in the garden.  ( they are very small right now.  I keep watching and waiting. ) I hope to blog better about going through it this time.  I have come along ways sense last July but I still have a ways to go and hope to continue to share my journey of better health.  Taking one baby step at a time and soon I will be walking across the floor.
:: enjoying... all the crocuses and daffodils that are finally blooming.
:: starting...to do t-tapp again after taking a couple month forced break between my frozen shoulder and cut toe. ((sigh))  It is good to get moving again!
:: loving...that it doesn't feel like Narnia here anymore and spring has finally arrived!

:: watching...all the birds returning to our area.  What a treat to see them again!  Boy did I miss all the bird songs in the morning.  Last night was the first time in a long time I cracked open our bedroom window for fresh air.  And to hear those birds wake me up...what a taste of heaven.

:: recovering...from a emotional whirl wind trip.  I will have to share more on this soon.  I was getting caught up in all the "don't haves" instead of the "have blessings".  I am trying to keep my perspective where it needs to be and not worry.  Why pray when you can worry?  Just kidding I mean the other way around. That is what has taken me away from blogging for a while now.  Just didn't have the umph to blog. ((sigh))

:: planning...all kinds of good things in the garden this year.  Who knows maybe even a chicken coop this year with chickens... ((praying)). 
:: hoping ....that next year then we will get goats.  I am sooooooooo smitten with the Kinder goat breed.   I have to figure out a way to get them across the US/Canadian border.  I have no idea what that would entail but praying it won't be to hard. 

:: hoping ...that my blogger's block is done and that I am back.

Simple Woman's Daybook...April 4th, 2012

FOR TODAY April 4th, 2012

Outside my window... it is raining cats and dogs.

I am thinking... thinking of all the house cleaning that needs to get done for the BIG family dinner for Resurrection Sunday.

I am thankful... that I got the stitches out of my toe yesterday. And that I only have a very minor infection that will be solved with soaking in Epsom salt water and treating it with tea tree oil.

In the kitchen... is a lot of catching up to do with cleaning. I also am de-hydrating sprouted wheat berries to make future muffins with. I have been making some yummy left over oatmeal muffins that I was inspired to make from HERE.

Recipe....1 cup cooked oatmeal, 1 egg, 1 TBSP melted butter, 1/2 cup milk, 4 TBSP honey/sugar/maple syrup, 2 TBSP baking powder, 1.5 cups flour, plus 1/2 cup 'extra somethings' - raisins, chocoloate chips, berries, etc. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

I am wearing... My olive green prairie skirt and my Shalom Cardigan.

I am creating... A knitted Head Kerchief, pattern is HERE.

I am reading... Psalm 91 by Peggy Joyce Ruth. I cannot recommend this book enough!

I am hoping... that I won't get hurt again for a long while.

I am looking forward to... going out for dinner at our friends house on Saturday.

I am learning... ohhh how I am learning all kinds of things with my diet. I do promise to get going on sharing. I just have to remember to have the camera near by so I can take pictures.

Around the house... are piles to be de cluttered.

I am pondering...how amazing our Lord is so loving, kind and gentle with us even if we are a bit daft. ( talking about myself here)

A favorite quote/verse for today...

"I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust."
Psalms 91:2

One of my favorite things... is a good rainy day to curl up to read and knit with a cup of tea next to me.

A few plans for the rest of the week... clean, try sewing a head kerchief, and keep knitting my other head kerchief.
