Christmas Gift Crafting Idea

Hi. I'm back. At least for a moment to let you know about a crochet pattern I just listed in our Etsy store. If you like to crochet with size 10 crochet thread and you want to make some Christmas gifts or just make something nice for yourself or someone else, you might want to check out the pattern for wine goblet coasters, which would probably also work on water goblets.

Not only would the coasters beautify the goblets, but they also help to differentiate your goblet from someone else's. If you are not a crocheter, you can buy a set of four ready-made coasters. I plan to list more sets soon. Like within a day or two.

We're getting into the swing of our homeschooling schedule and are having fun trying to learn Latin together from an old textbook - all without knowing much of anything about it to start with. Fortunately, the Guinea Pig is learning it in college, so we can ply him with questions.

Still hoping for a faster computer and internet hook-up someday, I

Higher Priorities

Because of the very many other things in our lives that need much more of my attention, including teaching and training and enjoying my children and desiring to give more undivided attention to them and to my husband, I'm going to shut down here. I don't know if I'll ever take it back up again - maybe if and when we get a faster computer and internet.

I love to write and it's been fun, but I can't give a blog or blogging friends the time that they'd need when I'm not taking care of my family's needs well enough.

So, I'm off.
