But I need a break from real life.
Blogging gives me that break, and helps me to focus on the really beautiful and funny moments in my life as a mother/teacher/gardener/knitter/hobby farmer/wife/sister/daughter.
It's a full and busy life I lead. I won't bore you with details, because I know the busyness of my life is
a) mostly of my own creation
b) not that unique, seeing as how I'm a modern woman
Life goes on, whether I'm busy or not. My kids dress themselves beautifully.
The chicks and gardens are growing. The moulting hens' feathers are (thankfully) growing in, too. Our cat has chosen the wheelbarrow full of weeds (waiting to be taken to the compost pile) as her favourite sleeping spot. She often wears a fascinator, just 'cause it looks so darn classy.
When I need a break from report cars, I've been stamping. Two hundred plus tags, to be exact. They're beautiful. They took hours to make. They're for my brother's wedding this weekend, and he was delighted with their quirkiness, which delighted me.
I'm crossing off the days of June, looking forward to the coming days when I can weed my garden without thinking about what ELSE I should be doing, hang out with my feet in the wading pool without guilt, and watch a movie with my kids...the whole thing!
Okay, that's it...break time's over. Back to report cards. Back to reality.
