Spring Break

IT'S SPRING BREAK!!! No school for a week =  time on the farm with my amazing family, tatting, tea, a good book (A Reason For God by Timothy Keller, a new favorite author of mine).

I can't believe that it's Wednesday already and my break is coming to a close. I am proud to say that during my break I was busy doing...nothing. It was so nice to relax and go about my day with the rhythm and pace of the farm and not have to worry about school. The past two weeks before break where nothing short of crazy, and I have a new job so this week has been such a blessing. I've spent time with the family, been busy outside with the horses and enjoying being home. Home is such a good place to be and I have to thank my parents dearly, for making our home a place that me and my sister want to be all the time. Sure I got out with some friends and went to my Bible study, but there is nothing like just coming home.


I've been tatting a lot and to the left is a doily that is all finished. I actually made another one, in the same pattern, but a different color. It was a quick and easy one so that's why, I thought, 'Hey, why not make another one!?'

My mom, sister, and I recently discovered PBS' 'Texas Ranch House' and 'Colonial House' series. The show takes 3 families and places them in a home of that time period (1867 for the ranch house) and they have to live and survive like the settlers for 2-4 months! It's a really entertaining show so I've gotten to tat while we watch that.

Well, with it being a gorgeous day outside I think I'll sign off here and meet up with you later!
Cheers!

Your doily is awesome! Love the colors!
My daughter is ending her college spring break today also so I am dreading next week when all the running her to and from school starts again, but thankfully she graduates this spring!!!
I too am reading an awesome book..."The Dream Giver" by Bruce Wilkinson(in case you might be interested). :)
May next week be blessed as you get back into the hustle and bustle of college life! :)

Your post makes it so easy to yearn for a Spring break as relaxing as the one you describe. *sigh*

Sounds like heaven!

Your tatting looks quite pretty and as usual, you've done a great job with it. Tat on!
