A Winter's Nap

NappingSo far, I feel like hibernating this Winter.  There's no snow to make us excited to be outside and the wind is just so windy.  I am so sleepy, too.  We have been in bed by eight, with me falling asleep on the couch, most every night.  I have been up by 4:30, too, so I guess it all evens out.  I'd love to sleep later, but I need some time each day to just be me.

Mike has been gone all week and next week will be more of the same.  I guess I just need to find my stride with the season, but I am having trouble.  I've been on my feet so much, that my right big toenail looks as though it is probably going to fall off.  Needless to say, I have taken that as a sign to sit more and waste less time on the computer.  I can say that I can't help it, that the communities I need are here, and that is true to a degree.  It's either books or computers for me in this season of hibernation.

Our schoolwork is going well and I am looking forward to sharing more about it soon.  We've done our first word family story and the digestion and artistic output has been fun.  We'll do another next week and then move to math, I think.  I don't get a whole lot of time for planning these days, when a plan would be so helpful.  My meal plan for the month is just a list of different main dishes, which is clearly not enough for me.  But, it will work out.  The days will pass just the same.

I had a lot of crafting things to share this week (and from last week, too!), but uploading pictures wasn't working.  So, there will be a whole heap to share next week.  I wish I had more knitting in that, but maybe my More Sitting strategy will help that along.  I'd like to get past some big projects and move on to smaller things that are, for me, more fun.

Well, it's almost nine.  Time for school!

Yikes! Definitely sit more! You know, with all your leisure time ;)

My kids have been hibernating this winter, too. Suddenly they're waking up after 8, often after 8:30, after YEARS of 7-7:30. We don't start school until 10:30 because that's what time it is by the time we're done with breakfast and getting dressed, and the whole day just shifted later. Except bedtime! It's so weird.

Yes, when I'm eating the bonbons. I'll have to sit while I eat bonbons from here on out.

This morning was a very early wake-up (before 6:00!) and we had stayed up later. Sleeping. Those were the days.

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.
