That proves it – life in a small town can get busy (in case you were wondering). There was a time when I too thought I’d never see the day.
RIGHT NOW I’m sitting outside on our back patio enjoying a lush 70 degrees with coffee while a teeny humming bird makes brave flights back and forth to our feeder, two of the neighborhood dogs are jouncing around in our yard with our dog, a rooster and his black hen from up the street are galiently pecking along our properity line and there are a couple mad cows bellowing furiously in the distance. And, boy do they sound distraught. We live in town people, but from our back yard you’d never know it.
This is my early morning ‘me-time’ before the toddler toddles into my day. I love my mornings now since I’ve convinced myself to get up early and miss them when Gavs decides to come join me earlier then normal. Quiet, me-time is the most refreshing way to start my day. Why haven’t I bought into it sooner?
FOUR THINGS FOR YOUR WEEKEND
- THIS BOOK about an orphan girl was a ‘get-nothing-else-done’ kinda read. A MUST read! A fascinating story on the life of a girl who exhausted the system and did what she knew; work with flowers and their meanings.
- I keep seeing THESE bags and am seriously coveting them. Not sure how practical it will be with baby gear. . . . .
- What impresses you and why? A GOOD READ from a blog I love to follow, Becoming Minimalist. Quote: “Let’s stop trying to impress others with the things that we own. And start trying to inspire them by the lives that we live.”
- THIS POST, by Ramshakle Glam has helped ease some of those worries of a soon to be mom of two.
