Life is so busy and full right now with planning the school year, harvesting from the garden, finishing up the fire wood, and trying to remember to embrace these beautiful August days with some special activities. In addition our business is busy with fall wedding orders.
So... knitting has been very scattered (kind of like my brain). My current projects are filling the fruit bowl - the two vests from last week and a cuddle doll that needs finishing.
Mike and I have been discussing more from The Resilient Farm and Homestead, in particular, growing rice. It also just so happens that a homestead friend mentioned the idea to me as well knowing we have a lot of wet land on our property. Shortly after we moved here, I took on the job as the librarian at our local library (open just 8 hours each week) and I was able to meet many of the "locals". Which resulted in becoming friends with some of the more hard core "living off the land" types as they still use the library computers:) I am thankful for their wisdom as most of them have been around since the 80's or so living up in the hills and have lots of experiences to share.
Joining in with Ginny.
