A New Leaf

What a stinker last week was!  Summer was hanging around and muscling in on Autumn and I could think was “why? WHY????!!!!”  I am pretty sure I got heat stroke hanging the washing out on one particular day.  

 Scorched.  

This morning there is definite change in the air. For the first time in what seems forever, I am not covered in sweat by 8am.  Ew gross, I know, but it’s worth celebrating in my book!

Autumn (when it FINALLY arrives) is my favourite time of the year. It’s cool enough to be incredibly productive and change is visible everywhere you look.  Life feels gentler. 

My list of things to do include:

  • Weed the yard
  • Explore our rainforest
  • Plant a herb garden
  • Paint the laundry door
  • Chop firewood

The kids are settling in really well to our new home.  Our youngest is a confident explorer and we’ve had to retrieve him from down the street and from the neighbours verandah several times.  The next major project to tackle is definitely a fence! 

  

We’ve been busy in the kitchen too!  It’s hard to believe what a difference this kitchen has made to cooking. The kitchen at our Sea Change home was tiny and crammed.  

 

Little chef in the making!

 

Time to go enjoy this fine weather!
