This Moment

:: This Moment ::

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple,special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny of Small Things

Nothing new to report this week. I have finished the back panel to the baby heirloom sweater and I am making slow progress on my hubby's scarf. Still reading the same stuff but I did pick up the Christmas Cookie edition of Better Homes and Gardens in the checkout line. It is lovely and I can't wait to make Christmas cookies! I was a little slow on knitting this week because I am finishing up Halloween costumes. Hope all is well in your world! 

Happy Knitting! 

Thank you for stopping by!

Our Learning Time...

:: Our Learning Time ::

We have begun what I call the second quarter of homeschooling preschool with Miss E. We took a week break so I could reorganize our space and develop a new plan for the upcoming weeks. We only do about 6 hours a week structured "work" a week but throughout the day we are always learning, playing, and growing. She is only three years old so playing is the most important. 

Here is a peek into the afternoon....

This week is "Ee" week!

Monday Mornings

:: Monday Mornings :: 

*enjoying: up extra early with the hubby but we are enjoying some quiet moments before the day starts

* drinking: coffee. please. thank you. 

* reading:The Lost Hours by Karen White and just started Apollo's Angels: A history of Ballet. I was feeling some nonfiction. I have plenty to read these days with a shelf full of library books. I think it is my favorite place to visit. 

*baking: bread day and maybe some apple dumplings

*creating: Halloween costumes (one done, one to go), a few more items for more Etsy shop, and knitting. Always knitting. 

*thinking: that with this week comes a renewed spirit of homeschooling and memory making with my girls. I am also contemplating continuing my education and starting work on a Master's Degree. It is a big decision to start schooling again and I don't know if I am up to the challenge at this point but if not now, when? Sometimes I wish decisions would make themselves up for me. 

*praying: for a healthy, happy week. 

Good Morning to you and yours! Here is a little Northern Renaissance to start the day. 

"The Arnolfini Wedding" by Flemish painter, Jan Van Eyck. 
My personal favorite.
