these days it's been a lot of homemade bread, hot tea, and apologies.
luckily the first two help rather a lot, smoothing out the way to the third. we're all a bit touchy and fragile feeling, particularly us girls. but we're mucking through and coming out stronger. I mean, that's the way it's supposed to work, right?
I'm thinking we're in need of a bit more structure to our mornings now~ especially as it's getting colder and we aren't heading out to the garden and yard for large chunks of time every day. I love our slow, easy mornings together before heading in to meet the kids coming off the bus for art class, but I think where she's at now is someplace where she'd thrive with more of a set rhythm. no doubt it'd do mama good, too. so, looking at that. maybe have a couple 'explorations' in mind for each week, more cooking together, more walks and hikes...... and even start setting aside a chunk of time dedicated to 'school' each morning.
