My weekly update!

My blogging has turned into a once a week thing...and I think I'll keep it that way.
So, what's been happening this week?
Well I guess the biggest news is that I quit my job. And I feel so good about it. I have totally enjoyed my freedom this week...been shopping and doing things around the house that I tend to neglect. And now I'm free to spend more time helping Joey in his business and I can go to Kentucky to visit my mom and dad anytime I want to. And I'm free to go to the MTSU football games coming up...I'm excited about that. I think it was a good move.
A couple of days ago I decided I was going to learn to knit. I have always wanted to learn and so I did it. I Googled "learn to knit" and it actually brought up a video. You know, you can learn to do anything on the internet. It was so easy and I have already made Lillie a poncho. I know it just looks like a green square, but maybe tomorrow I'll take a picture of her wearing it and you'll get a better idea. She was so cute yesterday when I told her I was making her something. I think it made her feel really special! Now I want to make something else, but I don't know what. I was going to make a poncho for me but Christian informed me that was definitely a fashion no-no, so if anyone has some other ideas for easy beginner things, let me know.
Another thing I've been thinking about this week is a statement that was on the front of last weeks bulletin at my church. Every year our pastor does a Fall Series and the last two weeks he's been talking about God's promises for us. On the bulletin was this statement: God's promises are reminders that the canvas of our lives are works yet unfinished. I love that. I think I'm going paint that phrase in a large canvas. That's my next project.
Well, tomorrow we will be going up to Kentucky Lake for our annual Davis family camping trip. Actually this year it's not technically camping. Joey's parents rented a chalet and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I know it will be easier, but there's is something about sitting out by a campfire with a sweat shirt on roasting marshmallows that really brings the family close together. I just don't think we'll get the same experience sitting in front of a big screen TV (probably watching football)! But, we'll see. Maybe I'm just I'm just being negative. I'll let you know how it goes! Posted by Picasa
