My pick for nostalgic theme this week was my Betsy Wetsy doll from my childhood. I dressed her in a crocheted sweater with a hood that was my (now adult) daughter's when she was a baby. The knitted blanket in the background was hers as well. I remember opening the box of this doll one Christmas and was so happy to receive from my parents, around age 6 or 7. It's been so cold I couldn't bear her just wearing her little dress. So she's still wearing the sweater and is wrapped in the blanket and laying near my sewing machine. I love her little face! So much so I took a close up of her.
I still have fond memories of a few other dolls and a couple stuffed animals that I had while young. What's a good memory of your childhood toy? Or game?
Weather update---our snow is gone. It started raining yesterday and it's much warmer. As we were headed to Bible study, the wind was really blowing hard from the southwest. Rain fell as well. We had to go around some tree branches on the road headed home, a different way. A train was impeding traffic so we had to go a back road. Good thing I have good reflexes!
We're still waiting on the part for our furnace. Hopefully tomorrow or no later than Friday. It's been a trial but we're surviving it. A bit of coughing from Megan but I think it's due to cooler house as I've got some happening too. Not good on asthma but the cold weather didn't help much. We are doing good with some heat from a oil radiant heater, new one so it's safe, and a couple smaller ones that are helpful. Thanks for your concern and appreciate your prayers for our trying times.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand, do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-7
