September always sees us emerging out of the cold of winter and enjoying the longer days and (slightly) warmer weather. The garden has sprung into life, and you can almost see the grass growing.
Making: plans for my new kitchen in the extension.
Cooking: Sausages, lots of sausages after we made our own a few weeks back.
Drinking: Still more hot milo… the days may be warming up, but the nights are still cool.
Reading: The Kings Curse by Phillipa Greggory.
Looking: at stoves, oven, sinks, fridges, windows, doors, floor coverings etc.
Playing: the guitar with Hannah.
Deciding: not much.
Wishing: school holidays lasted forever.
Enjoying: the slower pace.
Waiting: for our guests to arrive.
Liking: the new set of presets I bought from pretty presets for Lightroom. You might notice them in my photos over the coming weeks!
Wondering: if my kids will ever learn to pick up after themselves.
Loving: the photo’s my sister took of our family recently. You can check out her photos here.
Pondering: the best way to sort out the Lego – our current ‘system’ is not working. Ideas please!
Considering: going to The Forage in Canberra this weekend – looks yummy!
Watching: Downton Abbey seasons 3 and 4.
Hoping: for some more rain. It’s a farm thing.
Marveling: at how quickly the years come around, and how quickly the seeds grow into little plants.
Needing: nothing at the moment.
Smelling: The buddleia blooming.
Wearing: Short sleeves and no socks – bring on spring!
Noticing: the days are getting longer.
Knowing: the longer days mean that we often forget what time it is, until we are eating way too late and the kids are tired. This year it is going to be better!!!
Thinking: about taking the kids to Europe – it’s nice to dream.
Sorting: kids summer clothing, filing cabinets, and so much more.
Buying: A little shelf for the guest room from the local markets. A gaming computer for Country Boy.
Bookmarking: Canva – so easy and fun to make graphics for printing or popping on line.
Disliking: Hayfever – from now until the canola finishes, I’m itchy and sniffly.
Opening: the bathroom cabinet and smiling. Still.
Giggling: at my kids – they say so many funny things.
Helping: around the farm – a little.
Hearing: Hannah practice the guitar and piano.
I’m taking stock with Pip
What are you up to this September?
