This morning I woke up in Indi's bed because she is at camp and my Farmer Boy was snoring. I was feeling cranky and impatient and late to bush kinder, but all of a sudden happy and grateful and glad when I was handed a coffee in a take away cup on the way out the door. Yay! Thanks Farmer boy/barrista.
I was feeling disappointed that the quince jelly I made last night had to be thrown out because it got overcooked when I got distracted by a crying child and then a washing pile that needed folding. Then the farmer boys come in and ate some of it on crackers for afternoon tea and declared it the best ever! They've each taken a jar home for their families. Happy again.
Casting of my latest knit. Loving how it looks on my big three year old but being disappointed that she is soooooooo over posing for me and having to snap a couple of photos of her on the go and mostly from behind. Maybe I'll have to travel with some treats in my pockets in the future. Raveled here.
Looking forward to the most gorgeous sunny, autumnal day. The best forecast day of the week. But becoming a bit cranky when the DSE start burning the bush at the back of us and so all my washing and all our outside play is filled with stinky smoke.
Getting my giveaway package in the post from Suse. Thanks Suse!! A wonderful knitting book, Knitting at Home and some of her gorgeous handmade soap. After a quick flick I am FULL of inspiration but I already have too many projects on the go to cast on a new one.
Loving that Jazzy and her friend have been playing for hours with their dolls. Not loving that Miss Pepper hasn't been able to keep up with the intricacies of their big girl game and was quite upset for a while. And then being happy again when she decided to stop whimpering and start helping me my popping all the bits of quince that I've cut up in the pot for me.
Feeling oh so embarrassed at the state of my house when guests come in but using it as the kick up the bum I needed to spend a bit of time cleaning.
I could go on but you get the gist. Up and down and roundabout.
Maybe I'll run a bath with some calming lavender oil.
