Life is changing at Serendipity.
- Eat (largely soy-free and gluten-free, since I don’t eat those things, and I’m the cook)
- Keep chickens (since I’d have to avoid eggs too, if we were limited to store-bought)
- Manage meat rabbits (while I’ll eat cheap chicken, I don’t like supporting the conditions they’re raised in)
- We’re down to one wool rabbit (English angora) for her fiber. Still have bags of fiber from the last year of collecting
- Do just a bit of the fiber arts– spinning and knitting when my hands need something away from home, but rarely at home right now
The big change is that our children are transitioning this school year from homeschool to “away” school, joining Far North Christian School. I hope this down-tick in detail-management (teaching) will provide for a more-relaxed home life. And the chance to finish my novel (goal) before the end of this year.
The coolest part (for me) is that my kids are just as excited about that goal as I am: They’ve heard sections of my story, and so when the topic comes up in company they gush for me, and generally provide a glowing endorsement for the way I plan to spend my time.
Once we get back into a family rhythm, any combination of the above may be touched on at Serendipity Scrapbook, except for Novel stuff, since that’s covered on Untangling Tales.
Regular content here tries to stay focused on family updates, life-untangling (stuff I learn that makes my life easier– or at least better) and teaching a bit about living gluten free for the newcomer to the lifestyle.
