all the good things

Life is very rich right now, full of all the good things:  faith, family, friends, and meaningful work.  As always, trying to keep it in that order, though I sometimes find myself getting mixed up.  I’m exhausted at the end of the day, but in a mostly good way.  This week Jonny put in a few hours on the portable chicken coop and I made purple yarn.  Jonny climbed high on a ladder to reach the muscadines for dyeing for me, and Beatrix helped squish them.

Job is starting to say things.  He’s got “No,” “Mine,” and “Stop” down, all necessary when you’re the youngest.  He also says “See it,” while pointing, and he’s starting to say the names of his brothers, sisters, and even our friends.  It’s hard to believe that his second birthday is less than a month away.  We still call him “The Baby,” all the while his weight in my arms reminds me that he’s becoming less baby and more child.

We sometimes lament the fact that our life and schedules don’t allow for as many adventures as we used to take:  the mountains and meadows, the trees, the water.  But as we work and grow together I am reminded that life is an adventure even when you spend most of it near home.

Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

Yarn Along-4274

It’s starting to get chilly so I am finally feeling anxious to finish my barn sweater!  I have reached the pockets along the bottom of the body, so I am making some progress.

Jonny and I have been staying up a little too late watching The Crimson Field so I haven’t been reading much, just the first couple chapters of No Life for a Lady, which I do believe I will enjoy.  I love stories of pioneers, probably my favorite genre of fiction.
