Autumn Bounty and feeling motivated


Mikes back....and I'm back from Mum's
We're back as a family unit...atleast for now anyway.

Straight away Mike has started to tackle tasks that I've let slide......
I came back from taking the kids to tennis when I was greeted by a table full of pumpkins, chicken soup on the stove and bread rising in the oven..


There's nothing like a hot soup and buttered bread to really make you feel like hunkering down for the cold weather....


There's been a few nights where I've felt the need to get the knitting needles out again..... but everytime I visited the house to water the seedlings and check on the animals, I would look past the many flowers setting seed, and plants needing my attention...putting it off to another day.

With Mike here now...and having him already finished one of my things on my to do list....I felt the urge to get started on the sunflowers.....which after lunch became a whole family affair.....


and what started with the sunflowers soon followed with seed from the Hollyhocks, Cornflowers and Mike sowing more Coriander.

Mike and I really work well as a team....but apart? not so well.
Today's a good example, he jump started me out of my hiatus...and now my mind is full of plans for this new season.....meanwhile building is occupying Mikes every thought as the garage/office is near to becoming a reality.

Tonight we'll be dropping the kids off at Mums, and heading to friends for the night, it's a chance to wear my new dress (just finished), to show off my new hair do.....and a night away with no children ... something we haven't done since the two of us became 6...... ummmn bliss!
