A silkworm cocoon! I was beginning to think they would never spin, but yay! — PLEASE NOTE... this account will be going “poof” so please read previous post.
I’m going to go down a narrow path here in the social media world - enter faceless.

New friends on the farm!
Silkworms - Day # 27 since hatching! Look at how big they have grown! I just moved them to a larger habitat and hope that they will soon begin the next stage of spinning their cocoons.
Remembering my sister today with flowers on the table that dear husband picked out. I miss her and today would have been her birthday. I live too far from the cemetery, so I always have bouquets on special occasions.
The beauty of wildflowers painting the hillsides in golden orange hues. I love this view!
Pattern # 13 - MATISSE. This pattern was fun and gave us a rabbit trail into a quick study on the artist. Looking back at my daughter in this set of photos, I can see the lasting effects of mono still in her face. She still tires very easily.
Approximately 10 days old and our silkworms seem to be thriving! They’ve at least doubled or more in size and have changed from a dark color to a grayish cream color and it’s easy to see their distinctive head area. [Food update: I mentioned in my last post that the food I made was not able to be grated... well, I froze it and hoped for the best, and it appears to be satisfactory. I would highly suggest that if this is the case - to cut the food into squares as best possible before freezing. I have a big solid piece and my husband had to chisel it so that I can grate the food.]
Hello April... you were beautiful and allowed me to open up many doors and windows, but you played a cruel start by striking my youngest with the stomach bug. Instead of dressing up for church and a sunrise service, I spent the day doing laundry, disinfecting everything, diffusing essential oils, and praying for my little one’s constant whimpers. I’m praying that tomorrow brings health restored and energies renewed. Tonight, I’m just weary and sleeping on the couch to be near my sickie and look forward to some much needed rest. 🌷I rejoice in His risen gift ... His love traded for my sin - humbled. May I wake with mercy for they are new every morning! Great is His faithfulness.
