A snow storm is swirling outside today, and inside Greta and I are enjoying sweet homeyness. The laundry needs looking after today. Greta Rose is working on teeth again, and so is a bit more snuggly. She gives the nicest hugs now, and periodically will come up to me and give me an affectionate one (I suppose I do it often to her!) She wraps her arms around my neck tightly and lays her cheek against mine or on my shoulder. “Nah-nah”, she says (“nah” is her word for nice).
We’re glad to be back into our daily routine, to have Daddy back from his business trip and to go about our days in our own dear home. Greta and I missed our guy a good deal. I was glad for a chance to spend several days at Mama and Papa’s house, though. It was such a treat!

I had a comfortable bit of hemming to finish on a skirt this morning--a lovely skirt out of a cut of brown suiting with perfect drape. I am pleased to have it finished so I can wear it. Last Wednesday Mama, Greta and I went on a little expotition to a fabric store and we picked out enough yardage for three new skirts for me for the spring (my Christmas present from Mama and Papa). We found three lovely patterns: a brown suiting, a lovely cream with soft little pink and gold mini-roses, and a spring green with cream polka dots—just the sort I always look for! Since I was at the farm for a couple of days I took advantage of the vacationary mood and got all three sewn (all but the hem on the last one). I used the same favorite pattern of mine as before.

Drinking a cup of Good Earth tea. So yummy, and without sweetener too. Listening to the most beautiful song right now: "Revelation Song" by Kari Jobe, my new favorite-est—a brief interlude to our audiobook listening. Today it’s Prince Caspian, for the who-knows-how-manyeth time—it never gets old!
