It is February 1st and I really haven't "blogged" in a while, but that's ok. It happens.
We have been enjoying, and sometimes not enjoying, the ups and downs of the North Texas winter. 70's one day and 30's the next will drive anyone's nose to drip at an alarming rate. We have chickens. We love them. Really, they are awesome and you should get some too.
Our girls love them. And they lay eggs... giant eggs. Did I mention that the girls love them?
We made cards for Thanksgiving.
I spun some yarn... dyed by the lovely Dawn of Daybreak Dyeworks.
The girls colored pictures of chickens.
I spun some more.... Daybreak :)
And I bought some fiber... from Daybreak Dyeworks!
I cut up a quilt.
The girls busted out their water colors.
And I spun more Daybreak - surprise!
I washed a fleece.
Crocheted one of these crazy hats.
Made Helen cry by trying to take a picture of her new sweater... a Bulle.
And some other stuff... including...
Starting to read a couple books.
The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child's Heart of Eternity by Sally Clarkson
Our Lady of Fatima by William T. Walsh
Ordering a bunch of seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, so that we can pretend to be real farmers.
I also roasted a pretty darn good chicken last week (from the store, not the backyard)!
That is about it, welcome February!
