welcome, dent. it's inspiring
wonderful celebrations + preparations, yay!
we celebrate christmas but we love to observe the solstice, and this is our first year really doing something for it - candle making, hurrah. happy solstice!
ijooj, i too look forward to more light. i love the heights of summer and i always feel as if i've been plunged into the deep this time of year. it is past 8 here when the sun comes up (er, sort of! it is so dark out even now!) and 3.30 when it is disappearing, and i pretty much want to stay in bed
i love the stories of animals loving to play outside!
my sweet arrives from london today, and we have a billion preparations to make for the holiday, i'm very, very nervous now. oops
we'll be picking up a violin for my tall girl to play holiday songs for us, and i hope to do some serious work on the second sock i'm making...i have a lot of sewing + baking to do but must leave it til tomorrow.
i just don't have a gift for my tall one!! she has asked for something old fashioned and i am at a loss
i tried to find double dutch skipping ropes, no luck so far, though i may just make some
and i was thinking of getting her a dress pattern + fabric...but what?!
she's nine...any suggestions for me?
