My husband has been making breakfast-haiku cards..They’re amazing - I think! So people-I-know-in-life can prepare their mailboxes for the joy of receiving one. You’ll love it, I swear. He makes me look bad sometimes, this husband of mine, with all his guitar-playing, baby-dress-making, tattoo-designing skills. I tell myself that I’m just too artistic to be so much of an..artist, my temperament is too carelessly bohemian, but I know it’s a lie. He’s just more talented. It comforts me that he’ll never be able to throw (partially because I’m a distracted teacher, and partially because he’s only tried a couple times..I’m keeping him far from my wheel!)
We’ve been burning through our brush piles (they are Legion). Holding ourselves to a (so far lonely) Thursday night bonfire has been kind of fun, Yarrow loves collecting sticks and potty-training herself as ‘naked-baby among the trees’. Last night we made popcorn and drank beer, sitting on old pallets and watching the flames dance. Next week, the guitar is coming out!
I’ve been sort of absent - blog-wise - recently..I need to cut myself off from the internet for a night or two to get some actual thoughts down on paper to write about. My days have been full of spring-work and lazing in the sunshine, my evenings have been fun, but unthoughtful, and my concentration is gone..who can concentrate when all the trees are laughing? I think I’ll just go for a walk in the woods..
A Christian friend recently introduced us to the enneagram way of personality-typing. We got super excited and delved into it (I’m a decided 4 with a 5 wing, apparently - which means I’m undisciplined, but I’m also probably smarter than you..haha. Really.) But then, looking around, I saw articles claiming the enneagram is not compatible with Catholic teaching..does anyone know why, or in what way? The book we had seemed not much different than Myers-Briggs or any other type of personality test. Is it actually not acceptable, or just ‘yoga/Harry Potter’ style not acceptable? Because I can handle the second type no problem.
I have the patterns. I have the fabric. I just haven’t put them together yet to make new clothes for myself. Lazy? Yes. Distracted? Yes. Fear of failure? For sure..eh. But this will be the week! Right?? Especially as I’ve decided to jump into the What I Wore Sunday crowd - mainly to motivate myself to break out of the rut I’m in Sunday-clothing-wise: Black skirt, Black shirt, Black shoes, colorful headscarf..Goth is just such a hard habit to break!
My blogging friends Jenna and Christie are joining me in a Harry Potter read through. I’m not a fan. Jenna is. Christie is reading them for the first time..and we like each other, so the conversation should be fun, and will occasionally include recipes. Yay! It’ll be over at Cyganeria if you’re interested!
This is what I want to do with our bed..amazing how hard it it to find foam pads that aren't crazy expensive though - especially for a full sized bed. But it'll happen, I'm looking really hard. Right now our mattress is pretty beat-up, and my back is feeling it!
