If you have been reading my blog, (or if you know me well) you know that I am not a big fan of snow days. It's not that I don't enjoy the break, but making up days at the end of the year is not pleasant, and it throws my curriculum all out of wack. However, I do have to say that these couple of snow days this week have been very productive for me!
I am very pleased to report that my writing project for the women's conference at church is complete! That is a huge load off of my shoulders. I am excited about the conference and eager to share what God had laid on my heart. I feel really good about the work that has gone into it and it is a great feeling to have it done ahead of time!
Yesterday, Jerry and I worked some more in Alden's room. The carpet is being laid this weekend, so I am trying to finish the mural first. I added some leaves, but there is still more work to do. I am pleased with how it is going so far.
Today, a bird got into the house. I suspect that my cats brought him in. It flew around my kitchen for awhile and then finally flew out of a window I opened. While he was in though, he ate some dead bugs from the top of a light fixture. I guess he was helping me spring clean!
My favorite project today was my painting of my goat, Pink, and her baby, Blanca. I did the painting for a friend's silentl auction to benefit a bone marrow drive. I was not excited about starting the painting, but, as usual, I couldn't stop once I picked up the brush! I fell in love with this one! The goats are definitely my favorite painting subject right now!
