It's overwhelming how strong my desire to nest is at the moment! My "To Do" list of simple things (and a few not so simple) seems a mile long. I may never be finished with it before we travel. I can see myself now..."Wait I'll be ready to leave for the airport as soon as I finish sewing this 100 Good Wishes Quilt." So today I decided to cross one of the simple things off the list...KayLi's laundry.
For the very first time, I washed her little dresses and matched her little socks. It sounds so simple but I LOVED folding little clothes again. To say that I loved doing laundry...any laundry...is such an amazing act God. Seriously a true miracle! I am not exaggerating when I say I LOATH laundry! I can't stand to start a job I can't finish and laundry is NEVER finished. But today it was such a joy!!! Amazing!!!
Two of the things I washed were blankets we are getting ready for a care package we'll be sending to China. One we will mail her and one we will take to China. That way if the orphanage staff leaves the first one at the orphanage maybe KayLi will recognize the one we bring. I'll do the same thing with a little doll, as soon as I find just the right one!
I guess I should go for now. I have cupboards to clean out, two rooms to paint, child safety latches to install, and a quilt to sew!!!
