:. A new thrifted story book from days past....Harry likes the illustrations
:. Speaking of books....imagine the boys delight when I found a box of books that had not been unpacked from our return. They spent much of last night and this morning pouring over their much loved friends.
:. I attempted my first solo sewing project. I bought a kit for a simple bag and well, it actually looks like a bag. Mum and Cath, you need to know that if it had not been for your wonderful tuition in Australia I would never have got through this project. There is one flaw, if I was going to be picky you know, the handles aren't on correctly BUT they are on and they work great :)
:. I had a day shopping with a friend and it felt great. I rarely spend money on myself and I still find it difficult. However, it was a successful trip with my major purchase being new riding boots. I also managed to get 2 pairs of riding jeans from a thrift store for $2!!! I am looking forward to 'breaking' them in.
:. I also found this wonderful sign that I was unable to walk past. It is in keeping with my theme of late and is a constant reminder to slow down, enjoy the moment and live simply. Some days the simple life feels so natural, so easy. Other days I feel like I am fighting myself. That is when this sign will come in handy. To help remind me it is one step at a time, one day at a time. Change is good and gradual!
:. More camping! This time down to the States to Sullivan Lake. We weren't able to camp right on the lake but ended up out at the Mill Pond. We had a lot of fun amidst the rain, hail and stormy weather. We were only able to go to the beach twice in the 4 days but we made our own fun at the campsite. Sam insisted on having his training wheels taken off and of course, later that afternoon he was riding a two wheeler!
