What day is it?

I’m certain I am not the only one wondering this, my children aren’t doing school work which means it must be the weekend, but what day? All the days seem to be melding together and like most people we have not been leaving the farm.

With two jobs lost this month (Myself first and then Toph) and both kids homeschooling, we are trying to live as normally as possible for their sake. Trying to keep in touch with family and friends via phone, email, and a tiny bit of Instagram here and there.

Coffee dates now happen over facetime and we try to keep up with the news without letting it overwhelm us.

We lounge around on cold rainy days

and watch seeds pop up

I’ve been playing with my new cricut

and tackling wool from last years sheep and wool festival

I have two tubs of romney among the several other tubs of shetland, alpaca, coopworth, finn, angora, corriedale, cotswold, and well whatever else I have. All needing to be combed, carded, maybe dyed, and spun up.

Projects have been finished (Half an hour ago)

and we are all just trying to keep ourselves cherry and look forward to the future. We continue to keep the world in our thoughts during this crazy time and hope that this will soon be over.

Stay Safe Folks!

Scarves & Cast

So I figured, rather than continuing to write ‘my husband, my daughter, my son’ (you get it, you know they are mine), I would just start using names for them.

However, as I’m not big on putting names & front view pictures of my children in a public blog I’m going to do it a little different. Let’s just call them the names that they almost ended up with.

Toph (nickname) – is my husband, he grew up going to rendezvous with his parents. His ancestors were Vikings.

Raea (nickname from my cousin) – that would be myself. I grew up on a farm, read as many books as I could growing up, I could look at knitting patterns all day.

This was from last summer, Toph has let his hair & beard grow out since then.

Lorelai (6) – yes, when I was pregnant with my daughter I had seen every episode of Gilmore Girls and was dead set on her name (until my 4th month). She loves all things pink, Pokemon, history puzzles, & my little ponies.

Leif (3) – I wanted so badly to give this name to my son, however my husband won out in the end. Leif loves motorcycles, chickens, & Curious George. He gets into more trouble then I care to share.

Of course you know the real names of our critters, but that is us. Hi!

Anywho, I’m working on another project , are you going to finish this one?! …yes.

I’m working on a scarf at the moment, which I am hoping to finish by the end of tomorrow.

Have a great day folks!
