I am feeling:
Overwhelmed, at peace, frustrated, melancholy, joyful, excited, prayerful, grateful...and a wee bit tired. throughout these, busy, full days of motherhood. All intermittent except the tired part :)
For dinner tonight:
Pasta with simple garlic, chili and olive oil.
I'd like to share:
Some pictures from today... Spent mainly in the garden.
|Rainbow window stars still up from a certain small someone's rainbow themed birthday.|
|Our Springish window star!|
|Can you see our new little pets? Yes they really are shrimps!|
|Poppy fell out of her pushchair today, she needed a paper towel bandage and lots of cuddles and tea ( and cake :) Thankfully she is feeling much better now.|
|I can't beleive how well loved our waldorf dolls are! Although after a day of garden play I'm thinking they are looking a little grubby and could do with a bath.|
|Green is such a healing colour. Sometimes I'll just spend time gazing at my garden boards on pinterest and I'll come away feeling all revived and renewed. Green is very cleansing.|
|Our fairy garden|
|I sewed this pinafore for Emmy years ago! It has been worn by each child in turn so I have certainly got my efforts worth in :) I think this is the way with homemade clothing. It is valued so much more. This dress is covered in repair jobs!|
|As soon as Seraphina knows I'm taking photos of her she poses in the most amusing ways. I love her "natural" pensive poses best of all I think :)|
|Seraphina loves to pick bay leaves for me to put in stews and soups.|
|A simple bird feeder the girls made at rainbows!|
|Old fashioned Primulas and cowslips, my favourites (including aquilegias) One day when I'm an old purple wearing lady, I'll have a small nursery that you'll only be able to find down some obscure country lane and it'll sell nothing but pots and pots of primula's cowslips and aquilegias :)|
|A little silence and Seraphina's posy littering the loveliest pollen all over the table.|
