It has been a busy week but one filled with great gratitude. I like to pause quietly at the end of the week and remind myself what made the days better. Thanks to Susanne for hosting Friday Fave Five where I link up and share the best of Willow's Week.
On Friday and Saturday - yes, all day, both days - I attended a seminar/training led by Precept Upon Precept Ministries. Based on the completion of the training -20 hours of pre training homework (!) and 15 hours of class time -, I am now qualified to lead discussions of the Precept Studies. That was a long but beneficial weekend.
While I was studying and learning, The Professor kept the home fires burning, did the laundry, cooked our dinners, purchased our fresh fruits and veggies at the farmers market. We make a great team, don't we?
The mother of one of my students is very observant. She noticed that I tend to wear blues and purples and that I love anything fiber-related. So she created this felted heart pin especially for me, and her daughter gifted it to me this week for Valentine's Day.
My own little white and yellow flowers continue to bloom. In December, a friend who lives in Santa Barbara offered me a cardboard box full of discarded bulbs from her garden. I popped them in the ground and waited to see if any of them would grow. They did. Aren't they so sweet?
