So many things lately to be grateful for. Little things, big things, ALL OF THE THINGS! It’s been a good week. Sometimes I’ve felt a bit strange about blogging (like why the hell do I write stuff on the internet? Who do I think I am??), but sometimes I’ve gotten lost in kneading dough and realised I’m very grateful to be able to have the time for such things. Man, my head has been a busy place to be this week!
Tiny guy has learned to roll over and is mighty pleased with herself. She is such a bundle of happy flappy joy these days. Her grin lights up her whole head and she is divinely edible.
I’ve decided on a little luxury (alongside good quality food, travel and expensive hotels) as one of life’s non-negotiables, and that’s more regular flowers. Just simple ones, because Veggie Dad goes all out on special occasions and I’d like them to stay special, but a little posy of blooms here and there on a more regular basis. I just like them so much. I can cut corners (and will!) everywhere else if it means it makes the other things happen.
Finding that Abby is reading all over the house, and the books she chooses are just so cute.
Buying up lots of Australian garlic because we are right in the middle of the season, and Tricia told me to. I can store these for future use, or make garlic paste. I’m excited.
Speaking of storing for future use, I bought a kilo each of pears, plums, and peaches; and half a kilo of figs, and made jam. SO MUCH JAM. And then, of course, I had to make scones.
There are oh so many babies to be born this year, so I’ve been busy. lots of little projects on the go! Trying to figure out who’s due first and what they all need. naaawwwwww.
And on Sunday, I took Pepper for a stroll in the afternoon and realised I’d had such a nice day. We’d gone to Bunnings, planted some more herbs, pottered around outside tidying up (it has been raining for, like, a month), I made bread and pasta and generally felt very productive and good. And that night there was Mexican for dinner, on the couch, with my husband. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better.
What are you loving this week? Do you sometimes feel like a bit of an idiot for blogging?
