Some goings-on

All is quiet here because it's all happenin' at home! Throw together out-of-town (or in our case, out-of-country) guests, a couple of birthdays, Easter, lots of days out, a couple of projects and a couple of nights away, and you've got one busy household, I can tell you.
For now, I'm working on the February Lady Sweater (for myself, thank you very much), and a little something for Toby for his birthday, but I won't spoil the surprise.
We've got a new mama robin and egg in a new nest under the deck - same as last year. It's rather nice to see them again.
Our time at the Sovereign Grace Pastors' Conference was wonderful - truly. The thing that got me immediately upon arrival was how joyful everyone was, and so happy to serve. Great preaching, marvellous worship, and fabulous fellowship - we loved it.
Rest assured, photos are coming...

Hi Kelly! I'm tagging you for the next lines in Zoanna's story idea "If You Give A Lamb a Lemon" Remember?
Here's what we're working with so far:

"If you give a lamb a lemon, he might ask for tea. And if you give him some tea, he will ask for... a hat.
And if you give a lamb a hat he will want a proper tea party,
So you’ll have to bake some crumpets. And if you bake some crumpets, they might remind him of his Uncle Nigel and when he thinks of Uncle Nigel…

By the way,
How cool about the robin returning!
It reminded me of Psalm 84:1-4
How lovely are Your dwelling places,
O LORD of hosts!
My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
My King and my God.
