At The Cottage
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We spent the weekend hanging lights, decorating the tree, baking cookies and drinking hot chocolate. The decorations look great, now I just have to put up the boxes that they were stored in.
Handwork Season is in full swing. I've been working on a set of dolls for Will and will post them on Wednesday's WIP post. I've also been trying to put together batik napkins for Christmas gifts, but time in the studio seems to be at a premium these days. In addition, while it's more of preserving season activity than a handwork season activity, I made some lotion bars this weekend as well.
The garden is looking tired with only a few plants hanging on here and there. The chicks from this summer have grown into 5 roosters and 2 hens and have become difficult, if not impossible, to contain. Thus, they have decimated all of my fall vegetables, except for the parsnips, which they can't get to. I'm hoping to get the roosters butchered soon, but there is never enough time in the day.
On The Website
I've been plugging away at the website, albeit slowly. I just put up a page for Family Rhythm. At the bottom of the page you will see a sign up for our Family Rhythm newsletter. This newsletter will be sent out at the beginning of the season as listed on Seasonal Rhythm page. It will include ideas for celebrating all 4 types of rhythm and focus on seasonal activities that you can do at home.
We will also be sending out a monthly urban farming newsletter as well. You can sign up for it on any of the website pages using the sign up form in the right hand column.
I think that pretty much sums it up! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
