I've been busy lately, playing catch-up on some things and prepare-for on others.
*Amelia and Emily had a tea party for little girls.
*This was my Note from the Universe today:
Baby souls follow.
Young souls lead.
But old souls, Jen, are happy to dance alone.
Not that I'm spying on you,
I love that! So often my "notes" make me smile and lift my mood. And this old soul is in a dancing mood!
*Because to go along with my note form the universe, I won some products from Eucalan, who make non-toxic, biodegradable, phosphate free, no-rinse laundry detergent. The Give-Away was over at The Magic Bean, and Colleen uses Eucalan to wash and block hand knits, for felting, for treating printer ready fabric, and to soak dyed fabrics. Thanks, Colleen!
Do check out Colleen's blog for all kinds of crafty goodness!
*I'm reading Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand (author of Seabiscuit). My SIL and brother read it and loved and graciously loaned me their copy. It is the story of Louie Zamperini, a champion runner who ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics and hoped to win a gold in the 1940 Olympics. WWII interfered, Louie enlisted. What he and other POWs endured is a tribute to the endurance of the human spirit.
Have a great weekend!
