And just like that were half way through. Happy July friend !!. These parts we're deep into the coldest of the winter weather which makes getting out of bed even less of a thrill. Today though I'm awake sipping coffee in the early hours, the house still and quiet except for Loki, (my alarm clock), chewing on a plastic bottle at the end of the bed. There's light rain falling and a foggy grey sky instead of the usual vivid pink and orange sunrise that I never can capture the beauty of on my phone. That sort of pretty can drag you bleary eyed out on to a cold verandah early in the morning just to feel part of it for a minute. Today though just a blanket of grey but that has its comforts and beauties too. And what's that saying "good without the bad ain't no good at all".
Frinally friday friends ! That's got a ring to it doesn't it but in fact it's Saturday as I write because that's just what works better for me at the moment and if I’ve learnt anything it’s to do what works in the season I’m in even if it’s a bit out of kilter to the usual. So it’s Saturday for me when the sun has a way of wooing me and I’ve time to drink the second cup of coffee slow. Hoping there's plenty of coffee and sun and being at your ease in your Saturday and as always I hope these few words and reads will be fresh air and kind company to you as you enjoy your weekend xx
Hi fam, how are you? Is it sunny where you are? This morning there's a warmth in the air that feels luxurious after a shocker of a cold snap these last few weeks. Dealing with icy winds that go straight through you is kind of exhausting, getting to work everyday is also exhausting and keeping everyone fed and in reasonably clean clothes sure can be exhausting but here I am and the sun is out and it looks all beautiful. A long weekend here in Australia (sigh of joy and relief) feels pretty luxurious too. Whatever your doing this weekend I hope there's plenty of taking things at your own pace and in you own way on the agenda and as always I hope these few words and reads will be fresh air and kind company to you also xx
Happy weekending friends. This weeks reads have had me thinking about the things I'm teaching my children, the food I grew up eating (I still attribute my immune system to a seemingly endless supply of fresh oranges from a local orchard), and my lack of worldly travels yet my obsession with maps and people and places continues. Its been quite the ride. Climb aboard below. And after another week of unimaginable things, I hope this weekend you take time to do what's in your heart to do and to celebrate life in simple ways. As always I hope these few words and reads will be fresh air and kind company to you also xx
Happy weekend friends. After what felt like a trying week, Friday called for my comfiest work clothes, and a smidge of celebratory teal eyeliner that the 15 year old discarded. They say dress for success but today I dressed for rest and threw in a giant vanilla milkshake at lunch time for good measure. Whatever your doing I hope your celebrating life in simple ways and as always I hope these few words and reads will be fresh air and kind company - - -
Hi fam, how are you ? Hope the weeks been kind to you. The sun after another almost full week of heavy rain has been like good medicine today and a chance to throw the windows and doors open holiday like. Whatever your doing this weekend I hope as always these few words and reads will be kind company to you along the way – – –
Hey fam, how are you ? Not a public holiday in sight this week so it was a full weeks work for me but somehow it flew by anyway. Glad this morning though for the gorgeous sun streaming in, plentiful coffee, hot water for a longish shower (if I get in before the kids) and a chance to eat lunch outdoors. Your turn. What are you looking forward to today? As always I hope these few words and reads will be fresh air and kind company as you enjoy your weekend - - -
Hey fam, how are you ? With a three day working week this week the muddle up over what day it is continues so I'm a day out of kilter but glad to be here with you anyway. Any plans for the weekend ? Remember having nothing planned is a perfectly good plan too. I hope these few words and reads as always will be fresh air and kind company as you lean into the weekend - - -
