It is school and work holidays and it is lovely. The days have a real gentle rhythm. I am really enjoying my time in the morning when it is just me, a cup of tea and some quiet meditation. I would like to sleep in but it is not in my make up, never has been.
The weekend was hot but there has been a slight reprieve the last two day. Mid-thirties instead of 39℃ which doesn't sound like much at all really. On sunny, hot Sunday I got out the sewing machine and some vintage sheer fabric my great-uncle gave me. I made 8 produce bags of various sizes so when the garden isn't feeding us then I'll be prepared. I'm hoping to give them a trial run soon and then I can take some pictures of them in action. I've also been stitching a few stitches each day on my cross stitch until the evening light outside gets too low. Yarns are sorted for the big crochet project so it can start in earnest now.
When I did my morning gardening yesterday I disturbed some sort of conversation between these two noisy miners. They were probably plotting how best to steal something from the garden.
I had company while I gardened. Happily said company was on the other side of the fence. The sheep always get a few bits and pieces when I'm working. I have a Chou Moellier kale growing which is a particular favourite along with dahlia flowers/leaves and any tomatoes I can spare. The chickens get the weeds and they are happy for that too.
I had a lovely surprise today. Amy from Love Made my Home popped back up in my reading list. It looks like 2019 might be the year for getting back to blogging across the board. I know I am glad to be back. Amy's blog has always been a friendly place and a good read too. Her Instagram feed is beautiful too.
Well, I have finished my tea and have work to do. Hope you have an interesting day.
Bye for now,
