claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
i am grateful for a space that is meant to get messy in
to explore, discover and create
and my soul grips with gratitude that i have done this work
with my own children next to me
(or running like wild ones everywhere else…
with me questioning my very choice to even do this gig…ahhhh)
a project this week was cracking nuts
then piling nut shells and pieces
drizzling on as much glue as we needed!
seriously, we used more than a bottle per person…
i’m saving those empty ones for another project!
and after a few days to dry, the beautiful result will be:
a solid pile of squirrel food. beautiful.
UPDATED: so i have to add that these projects work so well because of people like ms. shannon, who is at home with hand cramping from being the glue fairy…drizzling glue over mounds in hopes that it would stick…she worked endlessly…pushing hair out of her eyes, hunched over after all the kids had left…oh, the joy of being with someone who is also having fun is tremendous.
