Happy Monday friends. How was your weekend? Mine was good but pretty busy. In fact by Sunday after lunch I was worn smooth out. I crawled in bed after lunch and pretty much stayed there the rest of the day. Which isn't a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the middle of a thunderstorm. I read, I watched Masterpiece Theatre and Oprah's interview with Carrie Underwood and her husband (they seem like the cutest, sweetest couple.) While I watched I also worked on unraveling and balling tons of yarn that was generously bestowed to me by a friend (I see many more Pom Poms in my future and maybe even some granny squares.) During the interview Carrie sang a verse of the Hymn, How Great Thou Art, which is one of Oprah's favorites (and mine too.)
Our 2012 has been such a mixed bag of emotions, highs and lows. Dreams realized and dreams put on hold. Disappointment and excitement. I thought for Thanksgiving, it might be appropriate to have a paper chain garland made from old Hymn pages to remind us that Whatever my lot, he has taught me to say, It is well, it is well, with my soul.
To create the chains I simply folded and tore each page into fourths. Then I used a glue stick to secure each end together, looping and gluing each strip as I went along.
