This is what my world looks like this morning. Isn't it beautiful??
We rarely have snow in Missouri in November. But we got a couple of inches yesterday.
I feel bad, because my husband is working outside in this weather. He is busy making sure all the cows are fed. Making sure the turkeys are fed. He hates wintertime. It makes a lot of extra work in very uncomfortable working conditions. There is no rest for a farmer. But he loves farming anyway!
And for all you knitters out there, I need some advice. My beautiful daughter (who is doing GREAT post appendectomy in case you were wondering) wants me to knit a hand band for her to keep her ears warm. I've been doing some looking around online, and I've found a couple of fairly simple patterns. I am really a beginning knitter. That means I can make scarfs, and I can make little baby hats (knitting in the round!), but I don't know a lot of the fancy stitches so I'm looking for something pretty basic. If you have any suggestions, I'd LOVE to hear from you!
These are a couple of patterns I've found so far. The top one is a little more difficult, but very pretty.

This second image looks very simple, even for a beginning knitter like me.

So if you have any suggestions on an easy headband to make, PLEASE share!!
So whatever the weather is in your neck of the woods, I pray that you are blessed. I pray that you are warm. I pray that today you take a few moments to thank God for all of the blessings in your life. And that, like me, today you will strive to be obedient to the verse below. The world is full of evil, full of sin. We are called to keep ourselves from this.
Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
