This weekend was busy, we bought 50# of beef, a new freezer, placed a deposit on half a pig, and ordered 1/2 a lamb as well. The house work was done, Mike and I got to go out on a date Friday night and I tried a pint Guinness for the first time (I was able to drink about half of it. lol), Sis took Sagan and Logan for a tour of the ASU campus, and the little boys, Fiona and I just sort of hung out. It was nice pleasant weekend.

The weeks have sort of been like that lately, not much to report, just life happening, flowing smoothly (for the most part). I am working on a way to sort of do more with our days, focusing a bit more on homeschooling, I tend to do that occasionally... feel this need to move on and change what we have been doing. It seems to be working, the boys ask to do the new things. There is more reading going on, some math, learning about how rainbows happen, form drawing, working on our sad sad garden, feeding the hens, baking, sitting outside in the lovely sunshine. Days like these are just so precious, when you sit and think about it; slow, flowing days, that don't seem to take much effort, that just sort of happen.
Knitting has happened, I finally started on sock number 2, which is coming along, very slowly, but surely. For some reason I took a break to knit up some ankle cuffs for jingle bells to go on. They are super simple and fun, and sadly, waaaay too big for Miss Fiona Rosy's wee little legs, so they may just end up on the music basket and I will be forced to knit another pair (oh the hard ships I face). And reading, I have done a bit of that. I got a copy of Kindred in the mail the other day and have been savoring it, and like always, when I am feeling stuck and in need of mama inspiration I pull out my copy of Heaven On Earth and read through all the advice and become inspired again.
