A much needed reminder.

Such a beautiful autumn morning for a daughter date with my first born. We played Pooh Bear amongst the pine trees, marvelled at the impressive fungi specimens and spotted new-to-us birds. We then made it back home in time to beat the rain, or rather dance in it and then enjoyed a cosy afternoon indoors.

I’m a little late getting my (not quite) ten shots online, but better late than never!

On the 10th of the month I was mainly busy prepping for the next school year, but it was also a very happy mail day with 4 incoming pieces from 4 different countries and I even managed to squeeze in a couple of replies amongst the usual hustle and bustle of family life.

One more pot to go.

It’s been a while since I did a Ten on Ten on here and I’ve missed it, and this month I found I really needed it. The heat has been getting to us a little over this past week and between us there have been some short tempers and grumpy attitudes that highlighted to me that I really needed to intentionally work on seeking the beauty and goodness of life.

Well today was a good day to be a beauty seeker. Sunshine, friends, flowers and frogs, followed by some free play, rest time and a even more fresh air.
