Yarn Along -6 April 2011
Lots of accomplished knitting to share this week in the Yarn Along. I have a number of 'orders' for the egg/birds for Easter so I've been busy. Ella really wants one. She's giving all the finished ones 'love'.
Today we are reading (and Ella loves) Bible Stories for Little Tots. It's by the Daughters of St.Paul. I think it must have been one of my Dad's books, it's a little too "Catholic" to be from Mom's baptist/missionary/united family. I have to skip some of the stories. They are too intense for Ella, I know we would have nightmares for days.
I really appreciate Grandma keeping Ella for me last week. I just wish Grandma did share her cold. Poor Miss Ella is miserable and coughing. Last night she woke up sobbing that her ear was plugged and hurting. She kept asking me to 'fix it', which breaks my heart since there is nothing I can do. We ended up downstairs because sitting up seemed to give her some relief. We eventually fell asleep (sometime after 2). That's one nice thing with Daddy's new chesterfield. Now when Ella needs to sleep downstairs, Momma doesn't have to sleep on the floor -she gets one reclined end and I get the other.
We are likely heading to the walk-in clinic this afternoon. I'm wondering if she's got an ear infection.
