Sometimes as I think about what I am going to write about for a blog post, I am struck with how truly uneventful our life seems to be and maybe it would seem a bit boring to others. The daily chores, homelearning, cleaning, baking, and handwork take up more than a full day for sure.
Over the past several days we have ~
Had a play date with a friend that lives on an organic farm who just happens to have a daughter born the exact same day and year as our Sarah. This is in a town with just about 500 residents. Quite remarkable, I think and they so enjoy their time together.
This past Friday we went over and it was a beautiful November day. The girls made fairy houses, while our Abby enjoyed rolling in a blown up inner tube and Abraham engaged himself with hoses.
On Sundays we have Meeting at our house and this past Sunday we had a potluck after which was just so nice. It was especially enjoyable talking while washing dishes after enjoying our meal together.
Although the days have been dark, we have still been spending time outside.
And bringing in the wood to fill up our woodpiles on our porch has become more frequent.
I am grateful that the chickens have begun to lay again after about a month of very low production. I moved them to our smaller coop since it gets light all day. We have also added crushed oyster shells to help with calcium and scratch to supplement their grain, food scraps, and free ranging.
Thank you for all joining in on the handmade holiday and for sharing.
Warm wishes, Tonya
