This is not what I was planning on writing about today, but it is what I've been thinking about allot. So here it is... My resolutions ( I know it's May!)
Over the next 6 months:
things I would like to stop buying from a mainstream store:
disposable diapers/ wipes
Over the next year (maybe 2)
things to stop buying from mainstream stores:
any dairy products
bread making supplies
Things I want to and need to learn to help this happen:
perfect my bread making and buy a grain mill
caring for chickens :)
growing what we can
eating with the seasons ( don't eat what's not in season, meat and other things)
Well my list could go on and will continue I'm sure but life outside my computer still goes on... :)
5 happy children await me in their freshly filled sand box. their laughter is calling me.
All my resolutions are for those 5 shining happy faces, some resolutions may change and grow over time but the reasons are still the same. I want to teach what ever I can to my little ones and show how to enjoy every minute of life that God has for them. Thank you God for my precious family!
This next pic is a wool felted ball I made for Dag the other day. It started out from a mistake.
Some of the best things start out that way, don't they!
It started with a beautifull skein of baby blue mohair/wool blend getting in with a load of wash :(.
While taking the clothes out to go in the dryer there it was. There was no undoing it. So I stop for a minute to think... it was already round... why not make a ball with it. So I used a rattle recycled from an old toy :) stuffed it in the center stuffed it in the toe of a clean sock(to help keep it round), threw it in the dryer with everything else. After that I thought I would make it look nicer by needle felting some agua and red felting wool that I had to the outside.
I am pleased with it and he enjoys rolling it around. :)
This is our two oldest boys with a few of there friends this same time last year in Texas. My how time does fly.
