Moving mountains

Tonight, my grand daughter was talking about mountains and mentioned the Bible verse where Jesus said if we had the faith of a mustard seed we could move a mountain. I told her that I think He didn't mean that literally, but used it to symbolize our mountains that we have to climb every day. Like people have huge debt, or a horrible job they hate going to, or medical problems. These are mountains we have to either go around or through or over. But if we have the faith of a little tiny mustard seed, we can move these mountains and get them out of our way.

I have SO much to do to get ready for the holiday market in just a few weeks that I am overwhelmed right now. Just thinking about all that I still have to do is making me freak out. And the more I freak out, the less I am doing. I have been doing some every day now, but when I see how much I have left to do, oh my goodness! But it will get done. I know it will.  I have to have faith. Then I can move this huge mountain out of my way and get on with it!

Maybe it's just me, but I can't stand Christmas music and advertisements before Thanksgiving. It's like skipping right over autumn.

What are you selling at the holiday market?

I have a few more scarves to finish for Christmas presents, but I twisted my left wrist (I'm left-handed) last weekend butchering chickens and then smashed the nail bed on the ring finger of the same hand yesterday. I use my hands so much for milking, cleaning, gardening, carrying wood, etc, that it seems to be getting worse not healing.

How is your foot?

You sound like me hurting yourself. I hate when I hurt my hands more than anything, because I have to use my hands to milk. I hope your wrist gets better soon. What are you doing for it?

My foot is still sore and swollen but I am able to get shoes on now. It feels much better to walk with shoes on. Thanks for asking.

I'll put a picture up of the jars I am making. I am also crocheting wash clothes and dish clothes and soap.
