We've been drinking delicious coffee, wassail, making tasty food, knitting, reading, getting work done, playing with Scout, and watching netflix streaming. Feels like second Christmas.
My sister posted this hilarious video (it's at the end of the post), you have to watch it to the very end. I feel mean that I still laugh hysterically. In my defense, we all did.
Scout is perfecting a speedy little scoot.
Stumbled across this post from a special education teacher, loved it.
When we can get to our dirt again (it will happen right?) we want to try these in our yard. An awesome use of all of our pruned branches! I'm excited to build our gardens up.
A friend of Josh's wrote this song in his honor. I'm surprised and touched that so many people, outside of our family, still think about him regularly. I'm glad he hasn't been forgotten.
Not only does this website have delicious recipes, I love her style of writing. And I loved this post, the first on her page right now. I need these reminders that all of life does not need to be documented, that it's ok to leave things out. I struggle to explain this when people ask why I don't use Twitter and Pintrest. This is my outlet where I document what I am willing to share, the things I am reading, the events we photograph, and the projects we are working on. Facebook and blogreading is the extent of my social networking. And even those are too much at times. It's good to step away and live in the real life connections, in the real life moments, in the quiet and stillness of life. This New York Times Article was excellent, but I especially loved this quote from Marshall McLuhan, “When things come at you very fast, naturally you lose touch with yourself.” Another reminder to live slow, to enjoy each moment and each connection.
