It has been less hot this week then last but I am a lot more comfortable due to the window air conditioner Proeun installed. Normally I would be all for naturally experiencing the change of seasons but pregnancy is a different case and I want to be cool. So after the farm work is done I like being inside. And what better to do when you are inside but
Even though it was a busy warm week we made a sojourn to our local library this afternoon. If I had thought of it I would have brought the camera to photograph the event but I am not used to bringing my camera everywhere. We have a great old neighborhood libary with classic architecture and a community room. Oh and a wonderful section of readers. It will be closed for the next 3 days so we had to get our weekend stash in.
Whenever I feel like I don’t have enough time for myself I realize a couple minutes journaling and reading a good book does wonders. Farm work has been really heavy right now so journaling and reading just to center myself is a must. I have been working my way through the most recent issue of Homeschooling Today magazine. Also my trip to the library brought home a copy of Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. I heard about this through Soule Mama. She wrote about making a smocked dress for her little girl and I knew my girls would love one as well. There are oh so many great patterns in it, I’ll have to pick one or two to try.
I also noticed a book I picked up at this spring’s MOSES conference called, Ecopreneuring by John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist. I heard them speak and was really impressed with their overall philosophy of life and business. Life has been so busy since then and this great tome has been neglected. Now it is calling to me, perhaps for this weekend’s reading? I am taking the weekend off, be back Tuesday.
