We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Ever had one of those days?....months (a bit of a vent)

Somedays here in cold Vermont seem like they are just here to spite me. Not a nice comment but I've had a spate of bad days for a while now. Not everyday but a lot more than not it seems. I feel unprepaired for parenting a toddler who is so active and has so much on his mind but no way of expressing it. I feel overwhelmed and short on time while starting our business. Communication on all fronts seems to be a forgein language for me.

Then there are the stupid technical things like how first I lost my camera and then when the awesome people at etsy got it back to me (with some additional pictures on it) and I go in to tell about my trip to New York the computer is crashed and has been residing for the last few days at the shop. Which leaves me writing this on our old laptop who is as tempermental as I am lately.

I have so many ideas of things I want to be working on, projects on so many fronts but instead of doing any of them I have spent the last two nights ironing fabric and trying to find the floor of my studio (which is still missing). I have finished all the designs for our first run of tee shirts, I'm going to put some on etsy when they are done. But I can't start thinking about printing any of them until the table is cleared and the shirts, which have been sitting in baskets and boxes for months are also ironed.

So if anyone has some spare hours that they don't use and want to send them to me so I can have a few 36 hour days that would be splendid.

oh honey I know exactly how you feel.

This is why I have a notebook full of ideas, for those times when other life things take over and I know I better write it down.

Your ironing will be done soon, and your tees will begin.

I won't say goodbye-just aloha.

Parenting a toddler is so hard! I don't miss those years of Logan's life. Things got so much easier around 4.
