I have so many things - ideas, to-do's - swirling around in my mind today, I can't seem to stay on task. I thought I would take a break and write some things down.
My work for the free-loan fund is slowing down, because I am slowing it down. I'm using as an excuse the fact that we haven't yet received the primary donation from from the women who initiated the fund with her end-of-life savings. Her daughter finally got her death certificate, but there is a lot to be done. When we get the money I will need to get my act together. I was thrown into this responsibility without knowing it, but I want it to succeed.
This week I am leading an English speaking women's class in the book of Nechemiah, chapter 7. I just started studying today. The wonder of being a stay at home mom... I can do these things in one day. It's great material. The power of prayer, the importance of ancestry, the value of place.
To publicize my cooking blog I was thinking of making some stylish aprons with the name of the site printed in some unique way on them. I'm having fun with the ideas and spending way too much time thinking about it, and maybe too much total time and money on a hobby that may never make me a penny. But I like to sew, and it would be so cool if it bought my blog some more followers and then someone in the world was wearing something I made. I've also started getting more into photographing my food (see pictures below).
And, "How's Gili?" you may ask. She went "swimming" this week! I hope one of the next two weeks I can go take pictures. She's doing so great in school! I don't know why I'm not getting more done around here, though. Why am I sketching aprons when I have so much mending to take care of??
Thanks for reading!
