A morning spent baking a pecan pie thank-you.
An early afternoon spent planting hyacinths and digging earthworms with the girls.
A late afternoon of immense blessing – We have been given an enormous maple loom, made right here in Oregon.Â Â We spent about two hours getting it dissassembled, carried up our narrow stairway, and reassembled.
It will need a good bath, a shuttle, some new pegs, but it is a beautiful, beautiful thing – an amazingly generous and precious gift.Â The girls and I can’t wait to get her in working order and teach ourselves how to weave shawls and rugs and coverlets – our minds are full of anticipation and possibilities!Â (Firecracker would like a superhero cape!)
And now we are off to our homeschool co-op’s end of the semester Open House.Â Â We have been looking forward to it for weeks (Little Hen is in the theatre class, and Firecracker will be singing in the choir).Â Â We’re so glad Grandma and Aunties and Cousin can come down and join us.
Altogether, a truly blessed Saturday – every piece.
