I was going through a bit of a funk in the last couple of weeks. It was cold, wet and miserable – and pretty much so was I. I expect this of myself because I REALLY DON’T like winter, but still I was thinking, “Just pull your socks up and get going!” I wanted to be feeling good to get things done inside the house and in the garden – but it just wasn’t in me…
Then a bit of a reality check hit me. And it said to me, “Traditionally winter is a time of rest. The garden gets a bit of rest and so do the humans”.
I’m good with that thought! J
But, what a difference some sunshine can make! Today has been most productive – a lovely morning walk; washing galore; gathering chook tucker (=weeding); and then a little bit of cleaning inside, which - since Michael has steadily been working on building the extra shelves we needed in the pantry – turned into a full pantry clean – gotta be happy with that J.
Don’t the shelves just do the trick?!
And he put in a few hooks so we could hang these lovelies too J.
My vintage cutting board collection (two…so far). The one on the left (paper lanterns and cherry blossom) was a wedding gift to my parents and the one on the right I found at an op shop – it has Australian native flowers.
