Depleted from nursing a toddler for 5 days straight I still count my blessings.

The neighbors don’t complain about how much Indigo cries. The plum tree is blooming and I get to see her outside the bedroom window every time we are in there. Fresh eggs from the chickens. Community that doesn’t quit. Strong, fierce, wise women I’m akin to, bonded. A partner who tries. Quality gelatin for when the yogurt fails, AGAIN! Ability to express myself and my responsibilities to this place of expression. My responsibilities to all of this is a blessing.

Recognizing that it will not always be this way is so good and so is venting…

Keep taking care of each other!

It was another hard day. Too many things to do and among other things, subjecting my kid to another appointment with an X-ray. He’s had so many X-rays in his short little life. It’s so hard on my mama heart…tomorrow has got to get better.

Thank goodness for my hubby, for my Sis and for friends who get us through it all <3

We have been so sick and just hanging on but we are starting to turn the corner on this flu virus that is making its way through our valley.

Indigo healed up the fastest then my Hubby. I unfortunately have the persistent respiratory cough that doesn’t allow for much sleep and is very slow to heal. Thank the goddess for good friends!!!

Our friends and community continue to surround us with love and care. I’m not surprised, we have all invested in each other. It’s not easy being community because we all come from different places yet we find our way through all the and support each other.

I am continually humbled by the generosity of others.

Keep taking care of each other!

I’m almost done with my hubby’s mitts. They are long over due, like most of my knitting <3 They are also a tester for some mitts for some really awesome teens!

I’m thinking about making some book buddies. Anyone local want to do a book trade with Indigo? I want it to be local to cut down on mailing/packaging costs.

I’m also thinking about preschool/pre-K curriculum and all the art I want to make this year.

Cheers!!!
