Joining in at Virginia’s place where I am sharing my rocking moments of the past week.
It has been school holidays and the weather has mostly been really good which I am very grateful for.
Giant Autumn leaves were also discovered, and added to the magic of autumn. Victoria in particular was entranced and we came home with a little collection which we did rubbings with.
In amongst the bickering the children have had moments where they have played together well and I am SOOOOO grateful for those moments. Like this nest building that went on…it seemed to grow bigger and bigger!
I made resin paper!!! I saw a reference to someone who had used it and I thought that would make a good stone (:)) so I googled how to make it and OH MY GOSH. It is magical. You can see in this photo that the text from the other side glows through to the side you are seeing, the book text is almost translucent.
Feijoas have arrived. Our tree has dropped the first lot of feijoas which is one of the crowning jewels of Autumn to me. So far they have all being eaten, but feijoa and apricot jam will be made in a few weeks, and probably a feijoa cake or loaf, but for right now there is excitement every morning as the children rush out to check for new feijoas, how I imagine it would be if we were to have chickens.
We have done so much painting this week, and we have been painting even before breakfast…I will be a bit sad when school goes back.
Other than that, we have all had colds this week, and I am grateful for hot lemon and honey drinks and the ability to hibernate with the children and not get even worse than it could have been. I am also MOST grateful that the cold did not morph into asthma for Victoria.
And always for my Beloved for making me laugh even when I thought I was too tired and grumpy to even contemplate laughing. The man has a talent and knows me so incredibly well I am very blessed.
