Around here ....
Havesting beautiful homegrown produce lovingly tended to by my Mum, so far we have enjoyed snow peas, tomatoes, beans, lettuce, dill, parsley, basil, lemons and potatoes. As quick as she can harvest we are consuming!
Reading BIG MAGIC by Elizabeth Gilbert and Rising Strong by Brene Brown (actually re reading)
Planning the most wonderful Christmas possibly ever! My elderly Mum will have her first Christmas in 17 years surrounded and encompassed with love from her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, no one that she holds dearest will be missing!
Prepping for how those precious December 2015 memories will be documented, so fun
(of course I am using the kit I designed specifically warmer/southern hemisphere climates, you can find yours here)
Listening to a bunch of podcasts. Including but not limited to Sean McCabe, Scrap Gals, Elise Gets Crafty, Jess Lively, Good Life Project, Paperclipping Roundtable (stalking Noell for Novembers episode)
Cleaning house in anticipation of special guests arriving during the Silly Season, the house is always clean but I want it to be perfect!
Watching The Dressmaker, I enjoyed it as clearly Dressmaking is in my blood! and I enjoyed my beautiful companions company just as much!
Feeling content that my dear Mum is here with us, where she is the happiest I have seen her in 17 years, her bloodwork is the best it has been, she is gardening, she is reading, she is sewing, she is painting... a loving environment can do that! I did it Dad!
Extending kindness to my 13 - 15 year old self, amen for organisations that can guide you even when it's historical, I am doing it Dad!
Excited to attend another family gathering soon, a big extended family means lots of birthdays, engagements and other milestones... and any ol' excuse for a barbeque now that we are in the warmer months. Mum is especially enjoying this crazy social merry-go-round she has jumped on with us.
Blessed to have the most amazing support from my partner, what he does for me and mine is beyond words of thanks.
Clocking up an amazing amount of steps with my fitbit, only taken off for sleep, I just cannot get used to it being on during the night.
Researching LCHF - Low carb Healthy Fat and the rabbit hole I jump down regularly... so interesting
