Not to jinx anything

Everything has been going smoothly since I last wrote. We had a small harvest this year, despite the large garden. The drought complicated things. We had a third of the amount of potatoes, some zucchini, turnips, and well radishes that no one in the house cares for.

I’m trying not to stress about it, I’m working really hard to just relax and chill out. I ended up with a stress induced ulcer, which means no coffee, bacon, chocolate, among other things 😭 so I need to be zen all the time so I can heal up and coffee can come back into my life 😂

We have a new family member who arrived yesterday

Welcome to the farm Soot! Everyone is still trying to adjust, Ailey just doesn’t care.

Soot enjoys my mini Christmas tree. He usually can be found near it.

I’ve made some headway on my knitting and crochet while I’ve been relaxing

Foxy-Fox Mittens from Winter Knits from Scandinavia

A surprise that I am working on, I’ll tell you the pattern name when it is finished 😉 sadly this is going to be too small for me *ahem* up there. However I’ve enjoyed working on it so much I will definitely make another and go up a size or two in hook and yarn size.

Also look what finally made its way into my craft room from the barn

Now I can really start to play with it. Yes, that is bags of raw wool in the greenhouse. Alpaca, Finn, there is some Shetland in there.

More in here (expect the bottom, that tub is full of my kids baby clothes), plus I have four more tubs on shelves. I figured if I publicly shamed myself, I’d have to spend more time spinning it up.

Well folks, I hope you are having a wonderful week. Stay safe and healthy!
