Working on more wash cloths for gift giving and knitting up little gnomes in plant dyed wool yarn from Peace Fleece, and crocheting some more herbal bug spray cozies in preparation for the Farmer's Market.
I borrowed Goat Song by Brad Kessler from the library the other day and am really enjoying it. The author can be a bit crass, but now that we have had our does for one year, I can relate to much that the author writes and am enjoying learning bits and pieces along the way.
For Sarah (first/second grade), we are enjoying the simple poems from the book, All the small Poems and Fourteen More by Valerie Worth and illustrated by Natalie Babbitt.
The poems are nice for copywork and the illustrations are done in ink which is my favorite.
Here is one -
Grinds its teeth
Over the grass,
Spitting out a thick
Its head is too full
Of iron and oil
What it throws
The lawn's whole
Crop of chopped
Joining in this week with Ginny and so many others this Wednesday for the Yarn Along.
