anticipation


That's a freshly carded batt of exceptionally soft corriedale, lounging on the back of my spinning chair and waiting to be spun on my delightful new spinning wheel. It will wait until after laundry and dishes, and some schooling for the little guy.

Little and I have really shifted gears in the last week. I'm having what I hope will be a minor health crisis, and he has had several minor meltdowns, and all of that is pointing us in the direction of fewer scheduled activities. We're going to be home, and we're only going to go out when there's something we've just thought of that we really want to do.

This means we're opting out of some great organized activities and projects this fall, but it also means we'll have time for the library, the museum, trips to see his grandparents and his papa at work, not to mention time to play at home. We need our daydreaming time, and starting this week, we're going to get it. We're both excited and pleased about this change.

Sounds like you are getting into a great rhythm for you both. It is hard to shift from all the needs of the teen, to one that suites the needs of Little One. Add in plenty of Snuggle time in there!

Oh!! the New Wheel came in!! It looks lovely!!! Do hope I get to see it in person some time. My goodness that batt looks soooo soft!!
Great job!
hugs, Jody
