~ feeling so grateful for the green that surrounds me in the form of trees and hills and new plant life.
~ enjoying reading Eldest to the two older ones..I don't think I will ever tire of reading aloud and thankfully at eleven and ten they still love to snuggle and listen.
~ listening to the wind in the trees
~ wondering how to be all that I feel is within amidst all that needs to be done without
~ surviving the heat by reading in a cool bath whilst eating the divine Burnt Fig ice cream by Maggie Beer and sipping a glass of red.
~ loving seeing the passion my eleven year old for his garden
~ planning where to plant my ghost gums, jasmine and banksia vines, lemon and lime trees and a bunch of flowers.
~ watching the way my seven year old is adjusting to the new routines of school life and feeling so proud.
~ anticipating a day with the best friends a girl could have eating, celebrating and making.
~ thinking about how to navigate the ups and downs of a young girls emotions and moods as she transitions through to double digits, school cliques, new responsibilities, sharing a room with a four old, pushing and pulling needs and wants... I'm chanting to myself 'connection and boundaries'.
~ accepting my limitations and trying to live in the gift of this moment not in the disappointments of yesterday or the worry of tomorrow
