So many books in the to-read pile! I’ve been reading some, but between bears, work, moving, and life, I haven’t made as much time as I’d like. Ten minutes before bed feels like a treat. My plan is to read longer, but sleep is the greater need of the moment and I don’t last too long. That is all right. I trust my body knows what it needs. And so I rest and rest more. And soon the moving will be done and work will be in a less-busy phase of the cycle and I’ll have the chance to read chapters instead of paragraphs. Soon. For now, it’s more like pretending to read while dreaming of the real thing. Soon.
We must be doing something right – tonight she wanted to stay up just a little bit to finish copying out a Keats poem she found. And as if that wasn’t enough to warm this mama’s heart, she looked up two words in the dictionary all on her own! Shoon and ingle. Good looking up words. She’s going to turn out just fine.
I unpacked most of the fabric tonight. There wasn’t too much I’d forgotten about, but WOW there are so many things I want to make! We’d better hurry up and finish moving so I can start sewing again.
There is fabric for two more quilts in the closet still. Can’t wait to get back to it!
I uncovered one of my childhood treasures.
My Grammy embroidered this for me when I was a baby. Besides these five pages, I have two extra pictures she made of these bears hanging in my hallway.
Look at her stitches! Her work inspires me to do good work too.
