We are in our third week of studies with school and keeping much with the basics, until I am feeling better. The weather outside has been scorching hot but we still sneak out here and there. We greeted a lovely monarch who flew into our pool. We let her rest a while in our jar while she dried off her wings, and then we sent her back on her merry way. What a beauty she was though. And the first monarch we have seen up close all summer. We had no idea they enjoyed a dip in the pool!
I have been digging back into my beads and trying to remember all the knots that I used to know when I was a young girl. When I was in my teens I had taught myself how to do many things with beads. I had a bead loom that I enjoyed as well as big pile of embroidery thread for making hair wraps in my friends hair and for knotting into friendship bracelets. These are things I think Anna would enjoy and I would love to pass on to her. It is such a wonderful gift to be able to do such handwork, all of it is so enjoyable.
Figuring out the knots and trying to remember.
Anna gets a hair wrap!
This week I have also been doing some more of this and that! I changed the curtains in my living room and as you can see in the picture I seem to be waiting around a lot for my tea to brew. The curtains are ones I had from another apartment we lived in. That is the funny thing about moving as much as we have it seems like every place has different sized windows and needs different curtains. I have passed on all but this extra pair. It was nice switching them out it gave the room a fresh new look. Sometimes a little change can be nice.
And I am enjoying an early birthday present. I have grown rather fond of these moccasins they remind me of the bead work I used to do when I was a young girl.
They are super comfortable and they are pretty much glued to my feet, I may never take them off hehehe! And since they have a hard sole I can wear them outside as well as in! Thankfully the bohemian look has come back in fashion again so I do not even seem out of style and I have somehow now become fashion forward lol!! Funny how fashion works I guess when your style is out if you wait long enough just don't worry about it because it will come back in style again hehehehe!!
