Last week we went walking in the woods together for a few hours. It was warm and sunny, and just heavenly. My girl is big enough to walk with me now instead of only being carried, and she was picking up all these tiny pinecones and putting them in the bag we brought. She also loved the milkweed we gathered at the edge of a field. She said: "OOOoooh!!" as they floated away on the breeze. (It is worth noting that wool pants are excellent even for kneeling on the forest floor, and repel dirt surprisingly well.) She likes the nature table, and points to it saying: "PINEcoh!" -so cute.
So today we have light snow:
It's time, I suppose. I love early winter, but detest late winter -which is understandable, since fully half our year is winter here. Oh well, time to get working on some more woolens -gotta fill up that Etsy shop.
