As you can see from the 'layering' on my sewing bench that it has been a while since I have done any sewing. In fact it has been about two weeks since I did anything worthwhile.
Life has just taken over.
Things have been busy house wise, yard wise, homeschool wise and kid wise. Everything takes time, and sometimes you just have to step back and concentrate on having the basics running smoothly for a time.
I have done a lot of quilt browsing though!
It is warming up here in Australia and the flannel sheets are overdue to be off the beds, shorts/tshirts need to be back in the cupboards; and on the dark side the snakes are starting to come out of their hibernation. It looks like we are heading for a dry spring, the news says no decent rain till Christmas. It is certainly dry.
This evening, in that beautiful cool semi-dark time, I watered some of our trees and shrubs in the house yard. It was very peaceful and relaxing.
The slow combustion stove went out today, I forgot to feed it, and it doesn't look like it will be re-lit. I am going to miss cooking on it, alot. However how that tiny kitchen of ours heats up with it, I am glad to not be in such heat.
Seasons are changing. We start swimming lessons next week, the children are very excited about that. I miss swimming but do not want a pool here yet, not with so many little ones about.
I will be back tomorrow with a special 'early' post as I won't be able to post this weekend.
I have missed catching up with my blogging friends and reading everyones lovely comments, know that every comment and email is special. Thanks!
