From my desk...
When I sit down to write this portion of the newsletter, I usually scan through recent photos on my phone for inspiration. This week, my recent photos are mostly of food (I've been teaching the kids to cook), quotes from books the children or I have been reading, or silly photos of or with the children. Not much in the way of textile arts recently.
But the days have been full, and very good. We are plugging away at school work, and making progress on the multiplication table. I'm thankful that we still get to have skating lessons each week to get out and moving. Our library has curbside pick up available, a real blessing to us (though the 75-book limit on placing holds keeps bringing me up short - my son told me yesterday that he thinks that limit was created *because* of me, ha-ha!). The ability to cook yummy meals with my children has been satisfying, though also exhausting at times (still getting used to everything taking 3-4 times longer when they do it).
I've reached the point of winter in Wisconsin where I just want sunshine and warm weather again. Trying not to focus on the negatives, though, but on the positives.
Feeling blessed and thankful,
