Life is rolling. rolling. It’s like a wheel and I just wanna reach out and snatch it. Snatch it before it gets away from me.
Yet as I settle in here with the wood fire roaring, hot cuppa coffee in hand, finding time for fireside chats with you…….. boy do I <3 these kinda days.
Taking the good with the bad. The impatience. The frazzledness. (ok, apparently spell check says that’s not a word… it is in moi book!) Then BREATHE. Slowly slowly the mind heart body relaxes and I welcome all the good back.
Cause it’s nothing but good.
Road trips and coming home to my gardens. (Don’t look too closely, it is looking pretty sad… but I’m still hopeful!)
Delight in boys’ eyes. Setting traps and catching, skinning, and cooking their first rabbit. (ok, that last one’s on me. Rabbit stew anyone?)
Thinking I should really get the ole buns in gear and get cleaning and organizing…. but someone has a better idea. A stubborn toddler idea. She wants to snuggle all day on the couch. And who can blame her? We’ve got a stack of library books the size of Mt.Bohemia (and an equal number of them lost with fines accruing)….. and the fire is calling…….. the blinders are on to the dust dirt and grime……….. oh and the rabbit stew is probably burnt by now. But you are still welcome to have some if you would like! ;0
(and once again resorting to instagram pics… for now, that is ‘enough’)
p.s. ye ole soap shop is stocked and ready for your Christmas stocking! (ok, not yours…. cause really who is lame enough to stuff their own stocking? haha kidding on that one…. I totally would if I had to) But seriously, yummy, it is smelling good around here for a change………. lavender, lemongrass, and who can forget finnish sauna soap? Makes me wanna throw some steam and go jump in da lake or go pank some snow down, if you know what I mean
And thank you thank you thank you again for the amazing support, shares, and love with the new issue of Homebound Magazine… I am still getting through all of your kind and lovely comments…. beyond grateful for each of you.
