The past fortnight has been topsy-turvy and full of highs and lows.
Autumn has felt more like early summer and I am longing for warm fires, slow cooked meals and crisper mornings.
Our community has lost a young friend in a heartbreaking accident. In reflecting on this tragedy I think we are all trying to make more time to appreciate the small things.
Mum is in Paris as I write this and it feels completely surreal. Mum has lived in a different state to me for years but I can hardly comprehend that she is on the other side of the world at the moment.
My children recently spent a day with their other grandmother. In one day they killed roosters, rode horses, baked scones, took care of the farm chores, cooked dinner and squeezed in some very creative painting. My little people are lucky to have two strong, independent grandmothers in their lives.
Plans are underway for our second Fire and Flour Day. I am wondering what I need to adjust, what I need to keep or take out and how best I can prepare for another community cooking day.
What is happening at your place?
Are you reflecting or travelling or planning?
Wishing you a lovely Friday x
