The days have been so incredible full this month its hard to believe its mid- October. I still want to put garlic in the ground and I haven’t even ordered bulbs. I am taking this “Do nothing extra” year to the extreme it seems and it turns out everything is completely okay. But still, I will find space for garlic later today and I will dig up my dahlias and maybe cut back a few perennials.
My kids activities were at an all time high with fall baseball taking the forefront, then there re is the always activities like music and 4h filling in the gaps- but mostly its baseball all day every day. We managed to build a Sukkah for Miles’ third grade Jewish Studies block, and it was a beautiful evening complete with a bonfire and soup and stories. We attended some of the many offerings our area has for homeschoolers, including the history museum’s architecture walk and Billing’s Farm’s “putting up food” day. We have also made our own fun with experiments of different plant fibers as well.
And finally, I knitted something! It’s a plain tunic by Heidi Pickles and I love how sweet Willow looks in it. It is so soft and warm and has, of course, cat buttons.
