I am so grateful for the time this morning, rising early and sitting in the dark quiet before the day truly began.
I’m grateful for the year’s first seeds sown in the hoophouse, and two daikons harvested from a late fall planting (most of them got frozen).
Grateful that she wears either her stripey raglan or her red diamond raglan every. single. day. Those and the brown wool sweater pants I sewed. She is warm and I am thrilled.
Grateful that Gabriel got to wear that February baby sweater a few times at least before outgrowing it completely. And grateful that I’ve almost finished a new vest for him, since he’s growing much faster than I expected! Not sure why those last rows always seem to take so long.
Grateful to celebrate Ben’s birthday, and to have another amazing year ahead of us. We’ve been together for ten years now, and I am so immensely grateful for our life together.
Grateful for my old friend, the Ergo.
Grateful for a healthy baby, grateful that he often sleeps in the car (this is a miracle to us, since Ella screamed on each car ride for the first 2 1/2 years). Grateful to be eating dairy, wheat, and greens again, after a few weeks of taking them out of my diet to see if they would help his tummy, which sometimes seemed to trouble him. It didn’t seem to help, and boy am I loving every bite of cheese and sourdough bread!
Grateful for for friends, neighbors, and community. Grateful for our families, grateful for all the good work and farming to be done this year.
Blessings on your weekend, friends.
