October 2013

October was moody as it tends to be with it’s dramatic and changing colors, blue skies, fog and at the very last, rain. The boot room is showing transition as the season is cooling and i think there is a very large spider living in the corner who i really must get rid of.  I haven’t told the kids but soon they might ask why i’m banging out our shoes each time before we put them on and i know 1 boy in particular who will be particularly unsettled. There have been many after school scoots around the hood and to the park, beach explorations, baseball and neighborhood wanders with Little M, much dressing up and to that extent i have returned to my sewing projects, finally, after a great hiatus. The owl costumes got me started and the studio is a grand mess of projects now that need my time and attention. First craft fair is in 2 weeks! More on than in weeks to come.

adventuring & exploring,beaches,seasons | Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

it’s been a long while since i contributed to mosey and plod…blue skies, changing colors, long shadows, gnome hat season, laughing ducks, honking herons, leaf hunting, stone throwing, low tide exploring…absorbing the shift of things.

sillies

Post aquarium -sea-creature-seeking we ate snacks on a park bench overlooking the ocean, watched the fog lift and wondered if fog horns were some sort of creature. ah such sweet wonder, especially coming from the land where eels are rooted in the sand and the moon grows jelly… Little M talks about how he used to swim and play with a ball on his belly when he was a sea otter before he turned into Munroe. These 2 were rather silly this afternoon.

September 2013

beaches,brothers,day to day,home,monthly,seasons | Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Little A is back to school and in good time i think. He was ready to reconnect with friends after our long summer and the brothers are really going through some rivalries these days so the space is good. i wish i could say that i am full of projects and busyness but i’m just not feeling it these days. At the tail end of recovery from a mild concussion & benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, i’m all about single tasking and doing little. The winds are blowing, conkers falling, leaves piling, rhythms shifting…September is always huge;
