I really can’t believe that summer is unofficially over! The season zipped by in a blink. The warm weather is still upon us but I’ve spotted trees doing their magic by transforming from green sporting spots of red and gold.
The kids are back to school tomorrow and I guess it’s really time to say goodbye to all the things I love about summer. Most importantly the time spent with my kids. 🙁
I’m up to day 251 already in my daily sketchbook. I kinda can’t believe I’m still with. It’s kept me creatively connected during the busy days of summer at Camp Mom. Lol.
Knitting has also been right here with me throughout the summer. I finished this scarf just today. It’s traveled with me to many places and I can’t wait to send it off to a friend.
I also want to mention #peytonheartproject. Basically it’s a project that knitters and crocheters can participate in by knitting or crocheting small hearts and attaching positive messages to them and scattering them around where someone will find it. It was started as a way to raise awareness of bullying and teen suicide after a young boy took his life. Here is the link to the facebook page to learn more about the project and request the tag file if you are interested.
I’ve also been reading some. I LOVED this book so much. I read Fall of Marigolds earlier this year and then The Shape of Mercy right before this one. I loved them all.
I also wanted to jam some other good things into this already full post.
–Craft in the Middle of Motherhood: I was led to this post (thanks Anne) and I have to say there are so many things I can relate to and I’m sure you can too.
-I’ve said it before but I love podcasts. I love listening to them while I’m cooking dinner, cleaning, folding laundry, so basically a lot!
This one is so good so far. First Day Back. It chronicles a mom who wants to get back to her career after staying home with her boys for the past 6 years. I’m on episode 4 but it’s very well done and I can’t wait to find out what happens.
Did you know that Elizabeth Gilbert has a podcast? It’s called Magic Lessons. It sorta goes along with her forth coming book, Big Magic. I can’t wait for mine to show up any day.
Kelly Rae Roberts also has a podcast that is lovely. There are only three and you can find them here.
That was a lot. Phew. I would love to hear any book/movie/podcast recommendations if you want to share or even if you just want to say hi!
