Baking, sewing, flowers, netball, shopping and Furby.
A rollercoaster week. I started out cruising down the hills then struggled with a mid week climb. Bumped along for a couple of days and then cruised back home at the end.
I had this pretty passenger on board this week.
I have always involved the kids with one of my loves, cooking.
Miss 8 has been my right hand girl for a couple of years now and has a few meals and biscuit recipes almost mastered.
This week Master 6 decided to find a scone recipe and asked me to help him make it .
I was over the moon spending one on one kitchen time with him. They were delicious by the way and eaten too fast for me to even get a photo.
Netball has finally made its way back into my life.
I was an avid player, coach and umpire back in the day, I just love the game.
This week Phoenix started in her first team and she loves it.
I wonder how long I will remain on the side lines before I don my skirt and find a senior team with a spot.
I just love the expressions in this photo.
My awesome sister, Deb,taking the soon to be Miss 9, on a special Aunty Birthday shopping trip.
How happy do they both look?
Look what they came home with.
Fabulous Links I Love
This week I spent a lot of time catching up with my online reading and I would love to share some of the interesting, exciting and fun links I found.
A gorgeous read and stunning photos to celebrate the awakenings of Spring or prepare for the glory of Autumn.
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the heavens.
I enjoyed a breakfast catch up for a very dear friends birthday this week. One of the girls leaned over and asked me how I find the time to write my blog.
I felt this incredible surge of excitiement as a grin spread across my face….she reads it was all I could think.
This explains it all I Don’t Read your Blog.
Ready for some deep thinking, check this out The Myth of Enough.
I love this and I am making one.
A Guest Room Cart. Oops I don’t have a guest room.
Are you renovating, thinking of renovating, love watching renovating shows?
Check out The Nester. I love her belief that a home does not have to be perfect to be beautiful.
Costume Making Fabulous Fun
Today I got to play with a group of very talented ladies. They were working on costumes for the upcoming school production, Aladdin.
I do so love to be around all things creative and was very eager to help in any way I could.
How colourful are these fabrics?
This is the elastic, WOW.
You can see the talented ladies working away in the background while I play with my camera.
This is the powerhouse
This was my special job…..ironing the seams ready for them to sew.
I was very precise.
It couldn’t be all work and no play.
I hope you find something here to inspire you to take a moment to enjoy a moment or many as you notice some of the unexpected bliss surrounding you this week.
