Right now I am …

in my life, Newsletter

  • Enjoying a quiet interlude after an early start … I went to the farmers market with a friend then we did our family house clean for an hour.
  • Loving that it is raining outside … just a drizzle and it won’t stop me from hanging the clothes on the line.
  • Waiting for a load of washing to finish so I can put the next one on … it’s washing day today … hoping to get all the towels and sheets washed, they’ll enjoy the rain too.
  • Listening to talkback radio on the ABC … actually just turned it off, it was a bit dry and I couldn’t concentrate properly.
  • Researching the next Action Pack {Family Apothecary … so luscious} … just hopped online to buy some seaweed powder, kaolin clay and some essential oils.
  • Eating strawberries and drinking fresh mandarin juice from the markets … such intense real flavour!
  • Sketching, scanning and fiddling in illustrator.
  • Hoping that two of our ducks are enjoying their new home … we still have two left and we need to find a home for them before next year.
  • Making silly faces at my daughter … and she is making faces at me.
  • Thinking and planning for next year {the link leads the Action Pack blog where I discuss our family’s plans for next year}.

Reading and watching

  • We watched the movie Eragon for the second time the other night, since we are all reading the series of books (separately –  and then discussing it in a book club sort of way) we felt we needed a refresher on the movie – just to see what was different {quite a bit actually}. We are all loving this series the Inheritance Cycle (some of us are further ahead in the series than others) - and are fascinated by the author Christopher Paolini, he wrote the first book in the series when he was just 15, his parents helped him to self publish it and it was picked up by a publisher a couple of years later.
  • One of our family read-aloud novels earlier this year was Holes by Louis Sachar, we loved this book — adventure, boys daring escapades plus a touch of the ridiculous, and so when we discovered that a movie had been made from the book a few years ago we had to watch it — it was pretty good (not as a good as the book though – but pretty close) — read the book!.

As much as I love winter… we are having our first snow here in Wisconsin, but I cannot help but be jealous of your first strawberries ! Have a nice week-end.

I love the rain. We have been having light rain most of the week though yesterday and today have dawned clear.
