Hello Summer!

by - Monday, July 28, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you all!

I've been a little absent this last week due to finishing my old job and preparing to start my new one tomorrow. As a result I've been enjoying a very nice 5-day 'summer holiday' in between the two jobs but inadvertently filled the days with huge amounts of 'stuff' to get done.

So as I'm checking off the last bits on my list I thought I'd make an appearance to simply announce: Summer is here!

I'm sure you'd already noticed but for me, summer's been taking a little while to get off the ground. A few hot days were followed by a few more wet ones and it just didn't feel like we were there yet all through June and most of July.

But, the last two weeks have been hot hot hot, as have my 5 days off! I've lived outside in dresses the whole time and have spent more time out than I have in.

And it's been glorious.

The photos here are a few snaps of my summer Sunday scene from yesterday. I set myself up with a pitcher of strawberry & kiwi fizz, my camera and my new crochet hook. I didn't quite come away from it being a crochet master (in fact the tangled wool is still attached to my hook somewhere) but I did come away from the afternoon feeling the most important thing ever...


Gratitude for beautiful summer days.

Gratitude for feeling the warmth of the sun on your face.

Gratitude for fresh air in your lungs.

Gratitude for floating around in skirts and sandals.

Gratitude for listening to the birds.

Gratitude for butterflies skipping on the breeze.

Gratitude for barbecues and blankets.

Gratitude for simply being alive.
