On My Mind Today...


Aren't these booties just gorgeous. So far I have made three pairs. Two babies are on the way. We are waiting with bated breath for THE CALL from my farm friend who is already a few days overdue. The second baby will be my long awaited nephew, due in April. I just love to knit and crochet. As a busy home educating mom, a TIME TAMING TECHNIQUE for me is to work my crafts sitting alongside my studious children. In this way I am available when they need help, and I am rested rather than restless when educating my precious people takes longer than I had hoped. If we have a glut of a harvest to process, I can also often be found chopping and stirring in the kitchen, sharing the kitchen table space with maths or language books as I pickle, process and teach at the same time.

Take a look at Rhonda's blog:  Down to Earth for loads of elastic living inspiration.
