Nourish - Somehow I managed to keep my family alive throughout February! Despite feeling that I was never home, we created no rubbish with our school lunches and I managed to cook our meals from scratch. On a couple of nights that I couldn't manage it, we had takeaway and there were even a couple of nights that we resorted to brekky cereal for dinner.

I also did a lot of preparation in the garden. It desperately needed some soil improvement!
We hatched some chickens for future eggs and meat. They are so cute!
Grow - Hmmm! Not much. In fact hardly anything came from our garden. Thank goodness for generous family and friends. We were given tomatoes, silverbeet, beans, lettuce, zucchini....
Create - I've been working on a sock for Hubby. I've used the only plyed (plied?) wool I've ever spun. There isn't going to be enough for two socks so I will need to spin some more. I hope I can make it a similar thickness. It's been ages since I did any spinning so I'm not confident! I have informed Hubby that he will be wearing these socks anyway, regardless of matching thicknesses, scratchiness, errors in the knitting etc. Hours of labour have gone into them already and I'm not even halfway there!
I also had a wonderful experience this month. A lady nearby organised a group of women to get together and learn skills. She has a wonderful space for cooking, chatting and eating. We had our first get together and it was fantastic! We hope to be sharing skills on a monthly basis. You can read about our day here.
I enjoyed watching my last child start school. She has settled in beautifully!
