This week has been peg people, climbing, crochet, puzzles, stories, crafts, glitter, flowers, rainbows and tie-dye. This week has been breathing in peace and breathing out joy.This week has seen spring cleaning, gardening, and glorious sunshine. It has brought our first ladybirds of the season, our first harvests of salad, the first peekings up of calendula, and the beginnings of the end of our last-years medicines harvest!This week has involved jam. This week has had a fair bit of birthday crafting in it. There is always room (and time) for one more present. Rowan has been showing an interest in the girls' dolls, so I made her very own - I named it Poppy, once I'd crocheted the crazy hair to go with the gorgeous fabric I chose just for her on the market.This week has been full of blessings - desperately needed shoes and food shopping, and the bill that had caused our internet to be cut off, all paid for by friends without us ever having told them of our needs. Oh, and wool again (Ashleigh you are such a love)!This week has been remembrance and the lighting of candles. A sweet mama and her family have been in our hearts very much.This week has been full of things that look oddly like school, as well. Jenna has been writing away busily most days, and drawing endless *beautiful* pictures with the Waldorf Lyra pencils. There has been child-sized birthday crafting also - Jenna has finished her embroidery and declared that I must make it up into a blanket for Rowan's dolly. And then she crocheted a bracelet too, for good measure. We spent a busy day at the library and museum, looking at animals, making rockets and bug houses and bookmarks and pictures. And life for the girls has been, well, full and happy.This week has been fun!
