Rain, Cold, and Tea

When it's a rainy kind of day and you're using more tissues than usual,

a pot of tea is splendid company.

Balancing Act

Responsibilities with school and dance
pull at me from different sides,
proving balance tricky to maintain.
But, in the midst of it,
I am finding that these challenges pull me up,
to the One who steadies all.
A wonderful place to be

Continuing my gratitude list. . .

The Yarn Shelf

I've been weaving while listening to books on cd.  First, it was Jane Eyre, then Oliver Twist, and now Treasure Island. With this yarn ready, I should be set for awhile. Nothing like successful multitasking :)  ~Megan
