We have had a beautiful summer. We had some lovely walks (this photo is from one such walk)
There has been significant progress made with the state of the garden.
We have cleared and reorganised the whole house. I have come to understand it so much more as a 'home'.
I have discovered that if I keep things simple and take care of only a small number of plants I too can have a 'green thumb'!
Rea has returned from Greece full of good memories.
Lucy and I baked the yummiest whole-wheat shortbread cookies!
It has been proven true that all can be achieved in small steps. I often get so overwhelmed -probably because of my own expectations more than anything else-but the cure is to focus on small, on simple, on one-two-three, on the beginning, then the middle, then the end. The whole idea of reorganinsing my whole house begun a couple of months ago when I emptied my closet and put everything in 'its place'. The idea must have worked in my mind for some time before I yearned to do this everywhere in our home. It was the tinniest of steps and it eventualy created a massive desire for change.
These are some of the blessings this summer has given us.
