Here are some daily highlights from the first week of 2021!
Jan. 1st- Well I did not make it to midnight on New Year’s Eve. I never do. I started rousing around 4:30 A.M. and finally got rolling around 7:30. I walked the dogs and then made a breakfast of stuffed French toast and bacon.
Daniella will be with us until little Abigail finally puts in an appearance, but that is OK because we are working into a good rhythm:Morning chores and then morning ride, followed by lunch afternoon nap (in which I get afternoon chores one), and then some afternoon activity, followed by supper making and eating, and then wind down time which usually includes a Disney movie, a call to Mom and Dad, and a few stories before bed time.
Jan. 2-Baby Abigail is still a no show, but Daniella is taking it in stride. We seem to have discovered a pretty good rhythm for our days.
I started drawing again thanks to a drawing prompt journal given me by some artists friends at Christmas. Thanks Ken and Betty. Note I was a little daunted by the concept of Angel’s wings…I opted to try a feather.
Jan. 3rd- Church Day! First church service of January!
Jan. 4th- We played in the snow.
My book is finished! I heard from my publisher last night. She is releasing me from contract so I can be free to pursue other publication possibilities. I am not discouraged though. I was pretty sure that this was going to be the outcome since I have been so long in completing this work. I am very excited about the forward momentum I am sensing now!
Jan. 6th- And the world welcomes Abigail Yvaine Franklin!
Jan. 7th- The last few days Daniella has kept us really busy. Now that Abigail is born tonight is the night we prepare for Daniella’s return home after 11 days with us. That means laundry and tubby!
It has been a fun, busy, and memorable week here at The Vicarage.
