Weekend and Gratitude

nuala 6 weeks old

This has been such an amazing weekend. Blue skies, sunshine, lovely breezes. Errands run with the wee babe on Saturday turned out wonderfully. Happy people, surprises purchased, and someone bought my coffee at Starbucks. How awesome is that?? The day ended with a wonderful BBQ and dinner out on the back patio watching the sunset.
Sunday we got up early-ish, picked up bagels and headed to the lake for a walk.

I am grateful for:

~ A tidy back yard
~ BBQ and eating outside
~ Dear friends visiting
~ Cae and Row and all their drawings and stories
~ Sagan discovering a love of math
~ Texting
~ Sweet little Nuala
~ Hugs from my kids
~ Saying YES
~ A full pantry, fridge, and feezer
~ Yogurt

Crafting and reading

I haven't been blogging much, days have been flying by and there just doesn't seem to be time. My crafting (read that as knitting) has been placed on the waaaay back burner, although I have been feeling the pull to work  on something again. I promised Fiona a pair of socks to match the leg warmers I had knitted wee little Nuala and have been ever so slowly working on them. They are coming again slowly but surely. And in this amazing yarn which I can't remember what it is called, but I am pretty sure I got I from Knitpicks.
I have been reading Donna Ashton's book on Waldorf homeschooling, it is pretty good. I am enjoying it because I can read a bit and put it down and feel OK with that.

Truthful Tuesday

This is what I have been doing... gazing at my sweet babe. As much as I can. Holding her, smooching her, nursing her, sleeping with her. She is such a sweet little blessing. So happy she is here with us.

I have been meaning to blog more, but somehow the days just get away from me. Plus, I am honestly too lazy to down load all the pictures. I really haven't been doing much but nursing Nuala and watch Warehouse 13 on Netflix. I am feeling a bit more in the swing of life now, three weeks of chillin' was good for me. And I must say if you can, get your placenta turned into pills and take those. I have been feeling about 100 times better after Nuala's birth because of those magic pills.
This Saturday was spent cozy inside for the most part. The temps were in the low 60's and we had RAIN. Glorious, wonderful rain. It had been 71 days since our last drop of moisture. The kids went out in the rain just about every time the sky opened up with a burst of rain. I had extra laundry to do, but totally worth it.
Today, Sunday, shall be spent planning some fun stuff to do on the schooling front, and maybe a bit of sock knitting. I promised Fiona another pair of socks weeks ago.
