This morning I forgot how to make oatmeal.
I poured 6 cups of water + 6 cups of oats into the pot and only then realized something was not quite right.
Our CSA this week saved me from making a trip to the grocery store and has provided us with nourishing healthy meals all week. Standby easy food. Roasted Veggies & Chicken. Stir Fried Veggies and Rice. Smoothies. Soup. Speaking of which, if you're local you can sign up for the fall share here.
I've been up late everyday this week. Sewing. Dyeing. Sewing. See those new bags? And the fantastic sample packs from Stubby Pencil Studio? I reached out to Kate for business cards to share, Stubby Pencil Studio is our favorite art supply source, and she sent me those. Fantastic, right? I love them.
But, it's been busy. My to-do list is larger than my time list, as always. This time around I'm being a little wiser. Giving myself a midnight curfew and letting go of things that just can't be done. There are still books to read, and math to do, children to hug, animals to feed, birthdays to celebrate. A lot of balancing to be done to keep things going as steady as possible in a busy time.
Yes, birthdays. See that huge "kid" in the last photo? He turned 17 this week. Seventeen….. oh my.
