Did you know you say that when you are sitting near a fire and the smoke is getting in your eyes? You say “I don’t like white rabbits” and it changes directions? It really does! Who knew? Well Rob did, of course.
A new addition to the homestead and a fabulous one at that…a fire pit! We sat outside the other night, under the stars, wine in hand and nattered as the fire crackled and warmed our toes. As much as our inside fire is great for warming the house behind it’s combustion door, there ain’t nothing like an open fire.
I can’t quite believe that it’s Friday already! Friday?! I can’t quite believe the state of my washing pile that has just gotten bigger as the week has gone on and that the weather hasn’t changed. It’s been sunny for approx 3.5 seconds then misty rain and clouds and cold for 45 mins and then sunny for another 3.5 seconds. Rinse and repeat. All week. Quite boring really. I can’t quite believe that Daisy has missed 2 days of school this week after she has been sick with some kind of viral flu/croup thing. I can’t quite believe that it has been over a week or perhaps even longer since I went to bed, stayed in my bed all night, and did not have someone small come in and join us. Will there ever be a time again? I also can’t quite believe that we have more visitors tonight and I have barely thought about anything – the menu for the Royal Wedding extravaganza, what we will wear, do etc. I better get cracking. At least we can be sure that we can spend some time by the fire pit!
See you on the other side.
