It was overcast yesterday when Blossom and the girls came to visit so the little ones spent most of the day in the backyard adventuring, riding the rocking horse we found at a garage sale recently, picking flowers (weeds actually, but we shan't tell them that), gathering 'favourite' rocks and exploring the 'forest' which is in fact the chicken enclosure. Their delight in everything is infectious and makes me appreciate all the more what we have within our 1/4 acre.
Blossom stayed outside the coop and took videos of the girls for their daddy to watch later.
What a wonderful way to spend a Monday and begin the new week!
We shared morning tea and lunch, the girls eventually coming inside to eat but then disappearing outside again. They absolutely love the old $5 rocking horse and kindly took turns riding it.
Before going home they joined us inside for a story and some colouring, milk and cookies. The perfect end to a beautiful day.
Over the weekend my dear husband finished setting up my new computer and transferring all the business files from my old laptop. I've only used a laptop for the last decade so it's taking some getting used to having an actual computer. Of course, as with anything new to the office or sewing room I do a bit of freshening up and this was no different. I'm very inspired by the lovely calm layout of my 'new' corner office and think the coming months may be rather creative in more ways than one.
I'd planned to share a few recipes today but as I'm still acquainting myself with this computer I'll leave that until Friday when I share the next double block of Joy To The World.
Hope you're doing alright and not letting things crowd out your peace? My husband often tells me "Breathe Jen, just breathe" and it's been the best advice he ever gave because as soon as he says it I respond by stopping what I'm doing and thinking about how to stop and slow down for a bit. Perhaps you need that advice today?
God bless you dear ones, and I shall see you again in a few days...
