Hey. Since my last post we moved (twice). First to Greenfield, MA.
Where I homeschooled H for third grade and put C in part-time pre-school
Now he’s in his second year of preschool, full-time nowadays.
And H is in fourth grade, both at the local town elementary.
H joined Cub Scouts (he’s in his second year now),
so he did Pinewood Derby
Bought a house in Northfield, MA with outbuildings and land.
Painted the house blue.
Had a bunch of holidays and birthdays.
Went to visit Oregon and back to Wanakena.
Got about 65% through writing a thesis.
Brad has a job at Deerfield Academy.
I’m looking for one. A job, not an academy.
In the meantime, I started weaving like crazy on small looms like frame looms, tri-pin looms, backstrap and inkle. And some tatting. Did one craft show with it this past weekend, which didn’t go particularly well, but being a glutton for punishment, I’m signed up for three more and am looking to get into a fourth.
Hokay, that’s about the re-cap. All I’m likely to get to, anyway.
So, moving right along. Today I met Laverne, esteemed teacher of backstrap weaving. I bought her book, but remained nearly monosyllabic, as usual when meeting someone I “know” from online, failing to even help them make the connection with my own online identity. I’m very stupid that way.
