I have been so inspired this week by other homeschooling mothers who are also wonderful homemakers & specifically one blogger Mum Gae .
Her blog Cherished Hearts at Home is one of my all time fav blogs and most certainly is right at this moment.
I often get distracted by the things others are doing in their wonderful lives. Fell I too should be doing the same etc. I forget that many of my friends are working , some are single , some have only teens . The point is we are all unique and asked to work how best we can within our own family unit .
Once again I was reminded that I wished to focus on my homemaking skills , making crafts & reading & writing .
In particular Gramma Grace's letters which dh feels I am to somehow transform into book form .
I think this is a wonderful idea but my dh is also practical & he told me it could take a few yrs to go through all her writings , sort them and get them into print .
I also feel our children need me again to spend more time with them .
In fact our ds14 Wise Owl specifically has asked this .of me ! Now when a teenager asks Mum & Dad to spend more time with them that is a huge mature action for him to take . To both wish to be with his parents and also express he needs and wants time with them ☺
I'm hoping to make more meals together , get Wise Owl into bread making again . Adventure boy and I shall make some advent crafts & goodies I think .
I just wish to be Mum again ☺
I truly am most comfortable when doing these types of things . Baking , crafting , making things for others . Frankly at times I don't even want a shop to run I just wish I could give my crafty & herbal items to people .
I think I may join Gae's Hearts for Home to help me remain focused on my role as Mum .
Yes I did finish the curtains for the kitchen ! I do think they look very cottagy ☺
I also think they will look wonderful in a home in the woods when we finally do find a place ☺
So I am now off to make a nice warm batch of molasses ginger cookies for my sweetie pies .
