Small gifts

 It's that time of year again. I was going to buy myself a new diary from Target but they trashed the stationary area so I went to Typo instead. Lucky for me (and you) they are having 50% off diaries and calendars so I grabbed this pretty week to view diary for just $5.

 There were heaps of other choices but Little Miss said this one had more pink so it was the obvious choice. I tended to agree with her. I love how it has a monthly view at the beginning of each month so you can keep track of what's coming. I know people like to use their mobile phones or other devices but I like this method. That way, if my phone dies I still have a record of my appointments and I can scribble notes.

(Not-so) Little Miss got another award this term. They entered some Paint my Christmas Card competition for the local government and she got a commendation award. She makes me so proud. That being said, we don't need awards to make us feel proud about who we are but it's the things we do we should be more proud of and strive to achieve.

So it's a really busy time of year for everyone. I've bought some chocolates for the teachers and neighbours. I've yet to buy some toys for the Kmart Wishing Tree but will do that this week when I don't have so many little ones with me.

On the sewing end I found the Tulip Skirt pattern from Sew Daily. Talk about procrastination... 4 years to be exact since this pattern was released. I hope it works for me though as I'll be needing more skirts for this summer. We had a heat wave the past three days and it's finally subsided a little today with some rain.

In other news I have been completely humbled by doing two home visits for our St Vincent de Paul Conference. I was so moved by the lady who opened up her heart and life and talked about her struggles in life. Then when the Deacon told us of a story of a man who shared his sunset with his local priest because it was the only thing he had, I couldn't stop the tears from falling. I had asked to Lord to make me humble in he granted me those graces. I hope I am a good President for our conference and I hope we are blessed to continue to do the work of Jesus.

Aside: Are you wondering what's going to happen on the 21st? Me too......
