November Clicks!

Doll BasketThere aren't as many clicks this month as others.  That's okay, though, as the days are about to become quiet full of making and wrapping and being merry.  We are so ready for Advent to begin in a week.

*The Harvest :: A lovely poem that would make a wonderful blessing, too.
*The Luxury of Solitude :: This is me.  It would take me a long time to begin to feel bored.  People often say that they didn't know what they did with their time before they had children.  I do.
*Christmas Morning cards :: These are so sweet.  Willow makes our cards, but if I had the luxury, I would get these.
*Christmas Joy cards :: Or maybe I would get these.
*When Toys Take Over :: I can feel the Christmas pile looming in the background, even things I suggested when prodded.  It's too much.
*On The Trail To Preserve Appalachia's Bounty Of Heirloom Crops
*Beaver Tails :: Maybe I'll make these in place of doughnuts on a cold Winter day.
*Mushrooms ::  A wonderful poem.
*A Waldorf View of Thanksgiving :: I've struggled a lot with what kind of meaning to give this day.  We will learn songs, for sure, and our meal is (since that one with the 13 side dishes) always simple.  We might work on some sort of gratitude project this week.
*The Magic Fairy Lady ::  This creations here are just lovely.  I love how she brings stories to life in small dolls.  Willow and Roan wish I would make them for our family.
*This is the key of the kingdom :: A nesting story much older than Goodnight Moon.  There's a book called The House in the Night that draws its inspiration from this verse. Wonderful and comforting to young children.

The sun is rising now, so I'm off to sneak in a few minutes of reading. Happy Sunday!

I'm also feeling the Christmas toy loom, which I really hate. I don't like that Christmas turned into a holiday with so much stress and distraction!

I think Christmas was always that way, in one form or another, unfortunately. I'd rather just hole up in my house and never come out, but I know that's not socially acceptable or well-mannered. ;-) Upside is that the most annoying toys have a way of taking care of themselves fairly quickly.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
