It's Wednesday

Is anyone else feeling a bit off this week? I think it's because the 'holiday' fell on Sunday. Perhaps a better adjustment period to the new year is required of me. I need New Year's Day to fall midweek. Think one of you can arrange that for me for next year? ☺


There is no sewing news. I still need to finish the quilt/throw. The time I had to sew it up Monday was spent catching up with my sister. Yes, I'm admitting it. I chatted on the phone for about 2 hours with her. And I have not one ounce of guilt over it. We rarely get to chat that long. With each of us having three children ranging in ages from 5 to 13, most of our conversations are short bursts followed by interruptions. Sewing can wait when your sister is available to talk.


We've had a significant temperature drop in South Carolina. The high temp Tuesday was 37ยบ...Brrr y'all! We celebrated the chilly weather with a fun warm-up of Hot Cocoa, complete with marshmallows. Forget those little packets and make your own! It's a really simple recipe:

2 Tbs Baking Cocoa
1-2Tbs Sugar (depends on your sweet tooth)
1 tsp Vanilla
1½ Cups Milk

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Whisk together on medium heat just until bubbly hot. Serve in your favorite mug with marshmallows. Enjoy!

Um...yeah. I'm rockin' the headband look.
Call it my 'Hail to the 70's Mom' moment.

Today's celebration began early this morning. Upon awakening, while still wrapped in my handmade-by-my-Grandma Ripplestitch Afghan, I stepped out into the cold pre-dawn to watch the Quadrantid Meteor Shower. And what a show the heavens put on!

Right there around the handle of the Big Dipper, faint streaks of light scattered across the sky. Every once in a while a brighter "Look at me! Look at me!" meteor appeared. What a glorious way to celebrate a Wednesday!

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Psalm 8:3-4

Have you ever watched a meteor shower?

Happy Wednesday!
