Well this winter has gone by faster than I could blog it, so I've been meaning to have a catch up. Pip and Kate and a bunch of other lovely peeps thought this list was a great idea and I do too. Here's what's been happening:
Making : The most amazing chook fortress from found bits. We sewed it together and used bricks. Crafty. Cooking : Kimchi. Best. Drinking : My old fave - dandelion root coffee with raw milk and a drop of maple syrup. Reading:Quiet. Learning so much about me and Little Owlet and how we move through this world. Amazing. Wanting: More mulch than I can get my hands on. Looking: Out the window at the big green patch where the mulch should be. Playing: At darkmofo - Hobart got awesome for a while there. Wasting: Not much. It's surprising what you can reuse if you think craftily about it. Sewing: Nothing. There's been no time. Plus when I sit down I become food. Not happening anytime soon. Sad. Wishing: There were more hours in the day and I didn't need sleep. Or that Tiny would sleep more. Not fussy. Enjoying: Sunny days at our homeschool co-op and weekends with Huz. Waiting: For Tiny's rotten teeth to fall out in their own time. So far so good. Just. Liking: That the chooks are laying and Tiny's excitement over it. Wondering: When Big Owlet will be my height. And if Little Owlet will ever sleep in her room (she says no). Loving: How our owlets look out for each other and love each other. They really are besties. And decent sorts. Hoping: I can get more fruit trees in the ground before it's too late. Marvelling: At Huz and his new found love for running. Awesome and inspiring. Needing: Just a little bit more time out in my week. Still chasing that perfect balance. Smelling: Something in the fridge. It smells fermented. I think it might be kimchi. Wearing:Keshet. Our unschooling mums uniform at co-op. Hilarious! We're thinking of asking for sponsorship. Following: Tiny's little paths of destruction. She's quick. And cheeky. And stronger than me. Noticing: The days are getting longer. Yay! Knowing: I'll always have more that I'd like to do than I'm able to achieve. I'm like that. Thinking: I really need to plan my time better so I can get to at least half of it. And I need to go to bed earlier. Feeling: Tired. And a little overwhelmed. And like I've been saying that for a long while. Bookmarking: Everything. My computer died. I'm starting again. Opening: Parcels full of gorgeous stuff for Spiral Garden. The novelty still hasn't worn off. Giggling: At cheesy jokes with Huz. We've been together for so long now we pretty much communicate that way. Feeling: Excited by new ideas... but first sleep.
