making

The moon is a day away from full,
the edges crystal clear as the temperature
drops below the 20s.

We've spent the last few days busily
making...making...making...
lists, gifts, more lists...

Photobucket
Amelia's gift for Aven - a stuffed horse we drew then sewed - and wrapping paper/artwork with a wildflower (because Aven is a kind of wildflower, mama)


Photobucket
Aven's gift for 'May' is still a work in progress...

Photobucket
Making new friends...this is Sylvia.
Amelia has been asking for a cat
for about a year now. This lady
just started hanging around.
Smart cat.

Making time to rest after a long walk to the mailbox...

Photobucket
Making time to celebrate winter's approach...

Photobucket
and these days of gorgeous sun
we keep waking up to.

Photobucket
More gifts for friends,
using what we have around;

"Making our small light in the darkness."
I so feel that. Each warm delicious meal, art project, book read snuggled up, friend over to share food with feels like making our small light in the darkness. So important this time of year.
