I'm slowly unpacking all my sewing/craft/knitting things. Yesterday I pulled out my knitting that I started what seems like so long ago.
I couldn't find the original pattern and I started to get a bit worried. So, I started going through some of the boxes that hold all my magazines. I was so excited to find it. Then I had to sit down and see if I could even remember where I left off on the pattern. It's a 16 row pattern and if I left off in the middle I was in deep trouble, because "smart" me didn't mark which row I ended on.
But, "smart" me did finish the pattern the last time I worked on it...Yeah!!!! It sure felt good to be knitting again.
Still busy around here. Jim's making wood now. Moving here we are trying to simplify and make do with what we have in some things. So, instead of buying wood to make the saw horses Jim made his own out of the wood he had cut. Some of the wood we can't burn yet, it will have to dry and some of it is dead and can be burned right away.
Look what's on our griddle almost every morning. Homemade Nisu french toast and pancakes.
The hens are doing good and we're still getting eggs everyday. We plan to get more chicks in the spring so we'll have to make a bigger chicken coop and area for them. I want them to really free range but we'll have to see about that. We have quite a few coyotes around here and I'm not too sure I want my hens to be their dinner.
Life here has done a lot of things for us and slowing down seems to be one of them. Yes we are still busy in some ways, like making wood, baking and knitting. But those are a fun busy.
I hope you all have an awesome day today.
