Things has slowed down around here. For the first time in my life I have been experiencing Braxton hicks contractions causing me to rest and relax more. I normally don't feel contractions until just a couple of hours before birth so this is new to me. Rest? Relax? How does one do that?! Nesting, homeschooling and urban homesteading don't really bring about idle time but I am learning to embrace it. The girls have been great sports about doing schoolwork with me in bed, even if it is less than ideal. K and I did manage to get a bit of yarn dyeing in. We made a dye bath from some yellow dock seed stocks we harvested a couple of years ago down the road from our house in Oregon. The baby will get something special knit with this Oregon love yarn.
