Welcome to my Mitten Moments!
Random moments from my week that I am sharing with you!
This week, I took some time to slow down. That’s a hard one for me.
How about you?
Isn’t She Pretty?
Did you see my stories on Instagram this week?
If so, you saw my amazing Fired-Up dahlia! Isn’t she a beauty? I was lucky enough to get her and three other gems from Jen at The Flowering Farmhouse.
This is my first go at growing dahlias and needless to say, I am hooked!
Is It Really Empty?
I had an epic fail this week.
I got a call that my mother needed to go to the doctor as her face and eyes were swollen shut from some mosquito bites…that’s a story for another time.
So, I ran out of the house, got in the car and realized the car was on “E”.
You know how it is, the car never seems to have gas, especially when you’re in a hurry.
I drove to the corner gas station, put my card in the reader and started to pump. To my surprise, it kept sputtering and not pumping a full stream. The whole time I was thinking, “What is wrong with this pump?” I was looking at the attendant thinking, “Come on! Help a girl out! What is wrong with this pump?”
I pumped $5 worth of sputtering gas and then gave up.
Annoyed, I got in my car, I looked at the gas gage and low and behold, I realized the tank was actually full not empty.
Yes, you read that right. I tried pumping gas in a car with a full tank.
A slooooow down, Kim, moment…and your welcome for the laugh!
A Slow Saturday
Sewing helps me slow down. It’s a quiet, yet thoughtful process which is good for my soul.
Did you ever read my post How To Make A Doll Blanket? That’s a fun way to spend a Saturday too!
You know I make blankets for a cause but I also make blankets for people that God lays on my heart. Today, I am starting one of those.
I always try to make the fabric fit the person.
I love these patterns and I hope she’ll like them too.
It’s an honor to bless someone with something homemade.
Here are some other WONDERFUL moments, I found this week:
These amazing wooden pumpkins
These tiny ice cream sammies
I hope you have time to slow down this weekend.
I hope all the moments of your Saturday bring you more joy than you could imagine!
