Today is the first day of the school holidays here. Yay! I am looking forward to a lovely relaxing two weeks, squeezing in five days away as well.
On the weather front
Autumn is here! It has been raining on and off, so I haven't needed to water every day. The temperatures have cooled down and I lit the wood heater for the first time last week. Looking forward to some gorgeous autumn days.
I am currently reading The Illiad by Homer as part of my long-running hope to re-read classics.
Very excited that my turn FINALLY came to have Victoria Series One from the library. I watched two episodes last night. I was very tempted to keep going, but it was after midnight. I find that a real problem with watching series - it is SO difficult to turn it off!
I recently read the book by Daisy Goodwin (who also wrote the series) and loved it. I am a real Anglophile and British royal history is a real love of mine.
That we all have a lovely, relaxing school break and a blessed Easter.
To bloom where I am planted. This seems to have taken me a VERY long time to accept and act on. But I am really trying now to live in the everyday moments and not wish my life away, hoping for things that it is fairly certain will never happen.
I always vacillate between trying to accept where I am and wondering why all the positive affirmation stuff, like 'dream big and it will happen' never does seem to happen. Does anyone else feel this way?
So I am trying to adopt this as my new motto!
Mainly knitting projects at the moment - and attempting to sort out my yarn stash and finish stashing it on Ravelry.
A very special day spent on the weekend, celebrating my granddaughter's first birthday. It was a very precious day.
All the huge plans I have for the garden/farm, now that the weather has cooled down enough to get stuck into some hard work without melting! There are lots of tree planting plans in the works.
It will have to be a birthday one, won't it?!
