Listening to :: Coughs and sniffles. I haven’t caught it yet….Aaron came down with it last night and Basil and Emelia have been hit rather hard.
Pondering :: New habits and patterns….sprucing up household chore lists, cleaning and laundry strategies as well as prayer and reading times. The new year comes with high hopes, but hey.
Creating :: Chicken broth and thinking about a crochet pattern a friend was making that I’d like to take up for a living room throw…..basically a giant granny square.
Preparing :: Spaces and reading lists for term2 schooling. Some things just weren’t working this fall. After this break I realize (again) that so much growth and learning comes from free time and exploration…..balance and effort on my part to jump in and scaffold rather than be “busy” with things I “need” to do……..
Wearing :: Jeans, dark blue flowered long sleeve scoop neck, Wigam socked feet and hair pinned at the front. Remembering to order a new chain for my cross……unbreakable?
Thankful for :: These cabin feverish days of illness….giving opportunity by forcing me to slow down, reflect, refocus and serve these people i love.
