Cross Stitch,  Journal,  Reading

It’s Decorative Gourd Season

I took a break from sock knitting to do a little cross stitch and it was heavenly.  I very quickly stitched this cheeky one from Subversive Cross Stitch (you can click on the photo to go to the site). I giggle every time I see it. One of the little things I’ve enjoyed post-separation and divorce is putting any decoration I please out. I’ve kept it hidden during house showings but I’ll be blocking and framing it soon so it can live on the mantel.

School is in its third week. It’s hard.  I vaguely remember last year’s fifth graders being a rowdy lot but they are a wonderful group of sixth graders. I need to keep reminding myself this is just a phase but I am exhausted at the end of each day.  And my ankle is very swollen at the end of the day.

I’ve been reading Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman, the prequel to Practical Magic. I like it, I think.  I’m hoping to finish it this week so I’ll add a review onto GoodReads once I have a chance to reflect.
