Yesterday had a bit of gloom about it and so we dove in to a craft.
Batik Star Maps by Sarah of Imagine Childhood from the At-Home Nature Summer Camp.
These would be nice either as scarves with rolled sewn hems or maybe even making a pillow out of. The use is yet to be decided.
Yesterday afternoon Rika started running a fever and last night we were both of up most of the night with it. Her fever is so different from the toddler fever I had most recently been accustomed to, Sira’s which are fluttery and noncommittal, so different from her personality. This fever of Rikas is like a steam engine, it just keeps going. After tossing and turning with her for a while I started walking the floorboards to soothe her. On my patrol I was thinking of birth order and this book because her sickness so mirrors her eldest brothers fevers.
She is resting on my shoulder now after eating raspberries Gray picked this morning. I have a sneaky suspicion these little toddler toes will not touch the ground today.
