It's rather late for a gnome but I only realized as I started to drift off to sleep on the couch that I hadn't made a gnome yet! Usually it is in my morning rhythm to make a gnome but owing to some shifts in our household dynamics and schedule, my morning was slightly wonky today and that had a domino effect. Then there was the blaring sinus headache that kept me distracted and light headed and a full work schedule and by the time 9:00pm had rolled around I was ready for some serious shut eye. That's when it hit me- no gnome of the day. So I had a choice: I could write off the day and say that it was too full and overwhelming (which is valid) for me to gnome it up or I could try to pull together enough energy to make a gnome and add that small accomplishment to this odd, slightly disjointed day.
You can tell by this post what I chose. I didn't go full force and make a full grown gnome. No way. I made a gnomeling. He is spunky and sweet and eager to learn the way of forest, meadow and garden but for now he will tuck in for cuddles and observe the world around him.
