I am so happy to finally be able to sit down and chit chat with all of you. I thought I would give you an update on what has been happening this month at the farmhouse.
I started homeschooling my 5 year old son last month and it has been the most exciting, interesting, rewarding, and challenging journey so far. I am still processing it all and learning and growing every day.
This topic has become even more relevant since I started homeschooling. I am still trying to find a balance between homeschooling my son, teaching and playing piano, and blogging. It is a work in progress and I hope to get back to a more regular blogging schedule in November.
Trying to juggle different roles has taken a bit of a toll on my health lately. I am now more conscious and serious about the importance of rest and relaxation for a healthy body, mind, and soul. I also adopted a few new habits that are helping me heal and rejuvenate.
We have been busy getting our gardens ready for winter, which involves a lot of mulching, pruning, and cutting back perennials. We also planted a variety of bulbs (tulips, daffodils, crocus, and alliums) and I can’t wait for all the colors to pop up next Spring. I spent some time writing notes in my garden journal about this past gardening season and I also jotted down a few ideas and projects for next year.
Wheat, white pumpkins, and grain sack! This pretty much sums up my fall decorating this year.
I also made a hanging botanical print for our living room.
I bought a sewing machine last year and it has been sitting in a box ever since until this month. I finally mustered the courage to learn how to sew and I can’t believe I did not do it sooner. My first project was a throw pillow that I made out of some grain sack fabric I purchased on Ebay.
I am now hooked and I have a pile of fabric waiting to be played with…
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful season and thank you so much for visiting Kingsbury Brook Farm today.
