~ Right now ~
*I am praying for my Mum who has been unwell. She is on the road to recovery now but we had a big scare on the weekend. It makes you realise just how fragile life can be. I love you, Mum and I am so grateful that you are okay.
*I am looking out to my garden and realising that I need to get out there and weed it. Not fun but it needs to be done (10 Minutes!)
*I have a pile of paper work that needs to get sorted. I have been ignoring it but today is the day that I attack it.
*I have cast on a cardigan for Gracie. I love having something on my needles again.
*I have my fingers crossed for this competition at Lisa Leonard . The bag that I would love to win is called Gracie. I think that it's a good sign.
* I am grateful that the sun is setting a little later. It is awful when it starts getting dark before Paddy arrives home from school. Bring on warmer weather and more light in our days...come on, Melbourne!
*I am looking forward to my in-laws visiting in a few weeks. We love having family with us.
*I am missing our vegetable garden in Sydney. I always loved cooking with our winter vegetables. Unfortunately we don't get enough sun in our garden here to warrant a veggie patch.
*I am loving that everything feels good here. The kids seem happy to get back into their school routine and to be back playing with their school mates.
*I am enjoying playing Words With Friends. I play with a lot of my friends from Sydney. It is such a great way to keep in touch and play a game of Scrabble, too (It's my favourite game from way back. We had some great family competitions when I was growing up)
*I can't get enough of hearing the kids say "I love you!" to each other. Yes, they have their moments, but they are great friends and I feel darn lucky (I am sure this will change in the teenage years - but I hope that it doesn't)
