blessings big and small

It’s a lovely morning. Feels like fall’s coolness is really here. I don’t want to think about anything serious. lol I’ve decided to string beads for the fae and hang them in the tree this morning! I made some prayer ties on the newmoon to express my needs and thank yous. It feels heartening to walk out and see them – a physical reminder of blessings received.

We sold a few items on eBay and I’ve gotten everything ready to mail off this morning. G made enough to buy his game. He keeps trying to squeeze out an extra penny or two for a 99 cent auction and I won’t let him have it. lol Postage overage belongs to me for boxes and envelopes. I’m such a mean mommy. He says “no you’re not!” lol I love that boy!

I have one arm warmer made and need to finish the second sometime tomorrow, I can start the purple shawl my friend purchased the day after. Then it will be onto the next project!

I think we’ll be having some beautiful salad greens by the weekend. Not large amounts, but I’m so looking forward to them. The collards are about 6″ high. The spinach is 2″. Temps will plunge to the 40’s this weekend. So the growth will slow. I’m just glad we got them in in time for their beginning needs!

OK – it’s time to start this day. Hi-ho-hi-ho it’s off to knit I go! ;0)


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
