Crochet, Cookies, Candles

I've been looking at this little stack of yarn everyday for the last two weeks. It's like a colorful promise of rest after swimming in a cookie sea.

I am the Cookie Manager for our large Girl Scout Troop. It is a lot more work than I thought it would be, but I've also learned a lot in the process. I am so grateful for the ladies who have stepped up to co-manage. There is no way I could do it without them. We have gotten through the toughest week (Superbowl week) and will spend the next 30 days trying to keep things running smoothly. Cookie business leaves very little time for creative pleasure (someone has to teach school and clean house) But this time next month, that yarn is mine.

Last weekend we celebrated The Girl's big 13. Cannot believe we no longer have children in the house, but teenagers. There was all sorts of festivity: dinner, friends, and shopping. But I have to say, my favorite part was getting the chance to sit together for her birthday on Sunday night, just us four. After a busy week it was good to relax and enjoy the company of one another.
