Lately I’ve been wishing that someone would come along to write blog posts for me. I’d tell them what to say and all, they would just have to be the one to come up with the time/energy to actually put it all together. There are so many things that I love about sharing in this space. Really the only drawback at all is finding the time to actually do it. And then sometimes feeling guilty about it or like I’m falling behind because I haven’t, which is just silly… but it still happens.
This week we’ve put aside our regular homeschooling work, apart from the usual early morning math practice, to work on a Martinmas play, get a bunch of food put by once and for all, attempt to put the garden to bed, and settle children in with some new handwork projects, involving new skills all around. I thought it would be very leisurely and pleasant, it seemed so in my head, but instead the week has gone by in something of a blur.
It seems very much like November here. There is no other way to describe it. People look out of the windows or step into the garden and turn to each other saying, “It really does look like November”.
I’ve hired Iain and Elijah for a stone masonry project out in the garden. It’s coming along beautifully and is making me think that there is a whole new world of possibilities for our landscape, so long as these boys are willing. So far they’ve been not just willing, but extremely eager.
Today I ordered yarn for birthday sweaters for my 3 winter babies. Next will be fabric for Christmas pajamas. Let the season of crafting begin!
