so i am unsettled today. i, thankfully, have no reasons to leave this house. the kettle is on, a box of fiber from tax money is here. i will take a picture of all the colours and show you. :-)
so i am going to sharpen pencils, pull out graph paper and play while the kids watch qubo. ( ok i LOVE qubo, it has been so long since there was something decent to watch on weekend mornings and afternoons. and did i mention that dragon knits? what could be more lovely!?)
the last thing we did in our homestead house was pray and my daddy read the following.
so i leave you today with these words of comfort
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD,
"He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
( this is my favourite part, it crescendos into a massive declaration of love )
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

friday we picked up kids from my mom's and stayed til this afternoon.
i got the driveway here shoveled enough to be able to park. and snapped the shovel in half. :-)
while at my parents the following happened:
sam learned to knit by latern light. that's right old school, immersed in the ways of knitting from the past... he soaked it all up and became a knitter!
it obviously was not by choice. the power eventually returned, but the night was spent in a lil dark house listening to snow crash 80 ft down from the tree all around us. here he is reading bleak house and knitting.
the kids played and built a snow fort. their first. in colorado they were too small to do anything but sit in a sled.
i still had the congregational lap top with me so i knit and played, received horrible news on 2 cyber mates. i have beem trying to recover all the work one has done, finding scattered patterns here and there. completing patterns. typing and recreating documents.
purple socks for Gigi Memorial KAL
and finished a bunny, started a lamb ( fuzzy mitten's patterns)
i had only a small ammount of yarn with me and no clean needles, in the future i wil pack better heehee :-)
Bashir has appointed the militia leader who helped orchestrate genocide in Darfur as a senior adviser on ethnic affairs.
This brash and consistent defiance of the U.N. won't stop - not as long as Bashir has China to protect him.
We must tell China that enough is enough, and our representatives can help. Leaders in Congress are gathering support for an official letter to President Hu of China letting him know that his indifference toward Darfur is unacceptable.
As you know, China is Sudan's largest trade partner and foreign investor. It is Sudan's biggest defender in the international community, and it is the regime's largest arms supplier. But China played a crucial role in getting Sudan to agree to a hybrid peacekeeping force last summer.
Simply put, China has the power to put an end to the games Bashir is playing. Our representatives must pressure the Chinese government to lead the world community and end the violence in Darfur. Click here now to send your message to your representative.
HAVE WE FORGOTTEN HILARY CLINTON GAVE CHINA FAVOURED NATION STATUS!?
yet another reason i dont want her for president
( how the clinton's left the white house last time would be another. if they dont respect the office of president enough to not trash a white house and steal items from it, how can they serve properly in that office!!!)
