A sense of “quiet” lately. Lots of fall projects I’m trying to get under my belt: scrapbooks, hopefully more painting (I’m still scarred from Spring), sewing.
Cleaning a bit at a time, a step at a time. Trying to lighten the load. Sometimes it feels I’m getting a lot done, but most days, a step at a time as the grace is there for it, with lots of coffee and tea breaks in between instead of that feeling of panicky “I’ll never get all this done”.
I’m almost finished with Boy Wonder’s last year of school album.
I’m pretty much finished with Red’s 1st grade year.
And I’m starting Goldilocks last year of school.
I still have the rest of the years to go! But, I’m plodding. Trying to keep each year 6-8 pages per child, per year only in their school albums.
I’ve gotten a lot of “spot organizing” done lately…not the whole things, but enough problem areas to feel encouraged.
Trying to remember and relish in the joy of hard work and simplicity and using what I have rather than longing for more.
Gently fighting the inherent loneliness of working at home alone all day — much to do to keep me busy though.
