We've been making a few changes to our weekly schedule, adding some needed structure. It has been a very good thing. We are slowly creating times and places for all the things that need to be done, as well as the things we want to do. The changes specifically revolve around homeschooling, but as homeschooling is really a lifestyle for our family, the changes we've made have affected our lives.
I'll share more on our homeschooling choices later, but today I'd like to share what I've been making, for built into our new structure is more time for making things, which for me is ultimately making happiness.
Making more applesauce from our neighbor's apples.
Melting beeswax to pour into walnut shells I carefully cracked last year for this very project. Giving these sweet little candles to our new homeschooling friends (definitely more about that later!).
Crocheting lace from vintage thread that once belonged to my husband's grandmother.
Giving a gift to a new friend in the making. I can just imagine this jug cover over the top of her fermenting kombucha mother.
Making changes. Making room. Making friends. Making the life we desire.
