These past few weeks have been fun. I can now feel the baby moving a lot more, and see it bumping up from the inside--I had forgotten how much I missed that feeling! On Thursday, we find out what gender this little critter is, and I am really looking forward to it!

Last Saturday, dh bought a pre-seasoned cast iron set for me--a skillet and a dutch oven. I've only used the skillet so far, and I LOVE it!! It's also much healthier to use than stainless steel or non-stick pans.

I think dd may have been bitten by the fiber bug, like her mommy. When I'm not crocheting, I set down my project(s) in a place where I think she can't get to them--she shortly proves me wrong, and grabs the hook and begins twisting it, making a jumbled mess out of my work! :-) *sigh* I can't wait until she's 4 years old, when I can teach her how to use a knitting knoddy.

My Bible-copying has progressed considerably. So far, I've copied: Ruth, Esther, Song of Solomon, 2 John, and I'm currently on Chapter 8 of Proverbs. This is such slow, tedious work, but it's very satisfying when I reach my goal of a chapter each day. When I tell folks about it, they look at me like I'm weird, or something. I'm just trying to encourage others to do the same, at their own pace. A chapter a day is not an unreasonable goal, nor is even half a chapter per day. I just want to be able to set a good example for my children, since they're also going to be charged with doing this for their homework once they're 12 or so (or at least during the school year that they turn 12).

Over the past few weeks, I've found some tools to help keep me organized while I copy. I have a binder with plastic dividers which I purchased from the Dollar Tree (THUD), and I always keep a couple black-ink pens and a pad of perforated spiral notebook paper with it. Since I didn't have my own KJV bible but an NIV, I bought an inexpensive one for about $5 at Meijer (also, THUD). I keep all these things together as I work, and stack them together when I'm doing other things.
