Do you remember making potholders as a child? Did you know you can still buy the small looms to make potholders? Granted, they are now plastic and not the metal of days gone by, but they are still easy to find and fun to make. I’ve never used them for potholders though, especially the nylon strips as they catch fire at a glance and are very dangerous, particularly around gas stoves. I prefer cotton strips.
I find enjoyment in the smallest of pleasures and making these little gifts gives me great pleasure. In the coming warmer months, they will be a colorful addition and add cheer to the table. A basket of simple pleasures that give the people gathered around the table a bit of fun as they remember their Vacation Bible School days and making potholders.
Good News – Dave is doing a tad bit better and, for the first time in weeks, is now able to go off oxygen for a couple of hours at a time. He still needs to gain weight, a lot of weight, but thank God for small victories.
Unfortunately, Sheep Shearing Day will be closed to the public this year as we’re so overwhelmed with our new normal.
Blessings ~ mug mats ~ simple pleasures ~ Vacation Bible School ~ friends ~ tables full of joy ~ a new normal that’s a step in the right direction ~
Soli Deo Gloria,
