Thoughts from a blank mind

Dear Readers, my mind is blank this week. So I bring you just a run down of the week here at Marsh Farm.

It’s been a quiet week here at Marsh Farm. Monday was a federal holiday so I got lots of time in the workshop and it was nice to get some things under my belt. I even tried to make cat toys but they were quickly destroyed by our playful Jack and Charlie, so I have to go back to the drawing board for those.

Tuesday we celebrated my Mom’s birthday at the Olive Garden and we had a wonderful time.

We had a glorious snowstorm on Wednesday. We got around 8 inches and a snow day at home. We even got to break out the snow blower. This snow blower is the best yard sale purchase ever. It was almost never used and only cost us $75. It has served us well and I feel like such an adult when I use it. It was a fun mid-week day off the day jobs.

Thursday and Friday were quiet days of day jobs and working in our workshops in the evening. We even started working together in the woodshop to work on some wood and wool pieces. I really enjoy working together on projects. I feel like I learn so much from Susan and it’s a fun way to spend time together.

Saturday brought us to the Maugansville Ruritan pancake breakfast. It is one of our favorite community things to do. After that I went to my most local yarn shop. Just up the road is the Knitting Cottage. It’s such a lovely little shop chock full of yarn and has a great wool yarn and roving selection. They were also having a sale!

In the evening we headed to a gathering of our friends that like to create things. For awhile I have wanted to get together with other creative people and be creative. I love seeing what other people create and I find such inspiration from that. So we gathered with a few of our creative friends and shared things we made and created some things together. It was so much fun and we are going to organize some more gatherings. I was so energized on the drive home last night. My heart was happy from all the great energy. I’m so looking forward to doing it again.

So that’s our week. It was a quiet week but cozy and wintery.

Snowflakes and glue sticks,
