...this week of...

...happiness a wonderful walk with the children, time with friends, a quiet week, knitting and sewing time

...sadness the behaviour of a child which has crossed a line from exuberance to intent and another child getting hurt in the process, but its the mothers reaction that has made me sad, the child has no boundaries and cannot deal with all his power and control

...creating a hat, my first appliqué, lists for packing, lists of food, a few rows on a scarf

...reading The Secret Life of Trees by Colin Tudge, to the children  The Hut-Man's Book by G.D. Fisher and these picture books* you can read a short review of them here, 257. We Gather Together by Wendy Pfeffer, 258. Christopher's Harvest Time by Elsa Beskow.

...learning about the water table, groundwater and aquifers, rhythm, spiders, Central American cultures, Sukkot and Judaism

...thinking about a friend of mine whose Husband is very ill

...wondering about a day out being organised in December and whether we should go 

...hoping I can get all the preparation to go away sorted in time

...looking forward to a Canoe expedition we are starting on Saturday
