feeling a tad bit out of the loop this week for sure...
This week has been full of life and activity.
Mr. Pate and oldest daughter left Sunday to spend spring break working on community needs on a reservation way down south in New Mexico. I have hardly heard from them. But what I do hear is that the work is going well.
Oldest son is on a lake in Utah with uncle and cousins.
I bravely faced 43 this week. O.K..so maybe not so bravely, but thankful just the same. Thankful for the past year's journey. The past year has been a significant road in my life. It's good to reflect and review. Can I tell you how stinkin' happy I am to have the little mr. here, and to NOT have been pregnant this birthday?
My girlfriend came out to visit from California. This is beginning to be a yearly event. How she puts up with us and this crazy household is beyond me. But she keeps coming back. God bless her! I miss her desperately already.
That head cold and fever thing finally caught up with me. It is having it's way with the little mr. and daughter number three. Not the best of spring breaks for her. edited to add...and now she has an ear infection...just where DID i put that calgon?
I did get in some crocheting this week thanks to girlfriend from california. She coached me through a curly scarf. And I am rather pleased. Don't tell her, but i just might have to make another. Once I figured out the double double crochet thing, I nailed it. Photos to come on another post.
And here is a sneak peek for some work for April's Work In Progress gallery. So glad I have the weekend still to finish that up. It's not easy being single parent to these little people, especially when some of them are sickly.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Been a little lonely around here.
