This morning started with me doing some things I had no business doing on a day like today.
I am feeling snowed under with stuff these days. And most of it is little girl clothing. A particular little girl who had her dresser in my room and she insisted on pulling out all the clothing to sort through for ‘fairy’ gear. This happens let’s say, more than twice each day. I have reached the end of my tether and switched her dresser to her room. Relief.
So I made some. The idea came from the fact that we only had two eggs left. It is getting annoying that the hens are not laying yet. It is also a drag to buy eggs so we have eggs less often than we ever had. I am looking forward to the impending glut.
I am preparing fabric for a little dyeing project I will hopefully accomplish tomorrow. When the sewing machine is down one dyes, I guess. Also during toddler nap/10 year old lesson time I read through the book on the bottom there. Woman after my own heart. It includes notes on her year of not shopping and modifying the clothing she already has and fifty recipes on how others modify theirs. I am going to use some of the techniques from the tie dye book and a tea dyeing recipe from the Fashion Manifesto. Excited! Also in the Manifesto books are a couple of interesting braiding and knotting tee shirt and leggings modifications that I am going to try. Once this business of the mountain of laundry is dealt with.
I chatted on the phone with a fellow homeschooling mom this morning and was reminded to do a little tidying up and end of lessons chores*. Every year I clean the beeswax crayons with beeswax polish. This year I enlisted everyones help while I waxed a cabinet I found for Rika’s toys.
