High on the priority list - cosy spots, comfort food, family and fun.
(As it should be all year round but for some reason seems magnified in Winter)
We have been housesitting for siblings - which gave us access to a wood fire oven,
a Great Dane and two very cute kiddies.
How lovely to have the usual routine shaken up a little.
To be in a loving home and permeate the space with your own brand of fun and care.
To help out family and have a wonderful time doing it.
(Hubby decided to welcome them back with some homemade Gnocchi - he's perfected it for sure)
Home now, and there is washing to tend to, ironing to
curse lovingly finish
(I started two weeks ago) and a multitude of domestic tasks which appear far from glamorous and have me shuffling my feet more than usual. I've lit a few candles, prepped an oil burner (lemongrass thank you very much) & turned on the bush radio. I still need to find vines for tonight's class - a reverse proportioned, light and airy cascading arrangement - eek! I've fed & tended to the chickens - rewarded with a MAHOOSIVE bum nut today(!) and I have only had one cup of tea... I promise.
Life is moving along at a snails pace today peoples.... but that's ok.
PS - Bucket list item #27 ticked off... Swan Lake.... Sigh
