Today; I am reading The Secret Garden to the girls.
I am eating sun warmed, just picked apricots, plums and berries. Mmmmmm
I am wearing a sundress, jeans, thongs and a straw hat when outside.
I am threading elastic through the neckline of a little dress.
I am trying to remember to get to critical mass at 5 this afternoon.
I am marveling at how grown up my big girls are. This morning I dropped them off at a cafe where they ordered and drank hot chocolates. I met them half an hour later at the fruit shop when I'd finished my deliveries. I must say my heart almost burst when I drove past them crossing the road holding hands.
I am loving that the boys are laying irrigation lines and planting carrots and beetroots. Farmers need to farm and after the uncertainty of the last few weeks after the flood that's what they are doing. Hooray!!
I am looking forward to the weekend when our Farmer Boy will be ours and we'll go swimming and hang out by the dam.
I am smelling lavender. Jazzy has been making fairy cups full of sparkles and flowers and beads and lavender.
I am imagining what it will be like when my parents build and then live on the block opposite ours where these photos were taken.
I am listening to Pepper 'read' to me the pages and pages of stories she has 'written'. I must remember to film her.
I am marveling at Indi making eggs for the boys for lunch the past few days.
I am not shopping for school uniforms. A lovely lady stopped me in the street the other day to offer me three bags full. She saw I had girls and her girls are off to high school this year. Yay!
I am worrying about those communities trying to pick up the pieces of their lives after the floods. Like people have said all along, the recovery will be a marathon not a sprint, and we cannot forget about them now that the media circus has moved on.
I hope you are happy and I hope you have the most wonderful weekend.
Bye for now. X
