Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

What's Going On

I am still alive, thankfully!  My family has spent this month surviving the influenza.  It was truly awful, and I'm glad it's over.
I have been busy making lots of stuff, most of which isn't quite ready for pictures yet.  Here's one though!


I've been crocheting mittens, among other things.

I wish I had time for a proper post right now, but instead, I'm going to link to my farm blog, so you can read about what's taking up some of my time right now.  I'm going to take the luxury or reading your blogs over a nice cup of coffee tomorrow, and hopefully even write a Counting Blessings post! :)


  1. Patty, those mittens are GORGEOUS!! I'm glad you checked in but hate that you have been dealing with the flu, sorry to hear that. I hope you all have a nice weekend staying warm and recuperating, I know the flu wipes you out for a good amount of time after it leaves, take it easy!

  2. Erin, you are so right. This flu has still got me slightly lacking in energy. I'm fine in the morning, but by 3:00, I'm ready to go to bed already, Ugh! It does seem to be getting better every day now. :)
