I sat down this afternoon and formatted this month's free pattern into a PDF for you to download, after all, there's only so much boredom a girl can take when she's down with pneumonia.
Thank you for your prayers and comments (I have read and been blessed by every one). Recovery will be slow going as I feel barely any progress has been made so far, but I'm alive and have medication, vitamins, a bed to rest in and a husband who loves me, which is far more than many in this world have so I call myself blessed.
I'm pacing myself with episodes of The Crown because I don't want them to end too soon so between them I have my home library being dusted off cover by cover as I reacquaint myself with books on homemaking, decorating, crafting, sewing and Jesus. All the good stuff, the nourishing, inspiring and teaching stuff that I may have missed when life was hurried.
Someone asked me to share the titles of those homemaking books I showed in my last blog post, so here they are...
I am not going anywhere near my cookbooks at the moment. The do not tempt me at all.
Food is not tempting, but gallons of ginger water definitely is. I do eat small portions at mealtimes in order to take my antibiotics, but right now it's difficult to imagine salivating over particular dishes, be they sweet or savoury, however I'm sure in time that memory will come flooding back.
The hardest thing of all has been not seeing Blossom and her wee girls.
It's been over three weeks now (the first week Ross was on holidays so they were busy doing things) so she sends me daily photos of the children and we laugh a lot in our texts about Cully's insistence that she wear her ballerina tutu to bed every night, and Rafaella rolling over and scooting across the floor when on her back.
We're planning for them to come for a short visit next Wednesday, by then I can at least be sure I'm over the infectious stage. Can't be too cautious with babies involved.
Here's Rafaella, almost 4 months old now...
Anyhow, I'm going to give you the link to download the July block and head back to the couch for another episode of The Crown.
If you missed any of the previous blocks in this year's BOM you'll find them over here with links to their various blog posts, or simply download them direct from my shop.
Bless you heaps,
