This has been a great weekend we have been enjoying the last few days of our summer, autumn is almost here. There is a chill in the air in the mornings and it’s taking longer for the dark to turn to light each day. I am so looking forward to autumn, I love how the leaves turn golden, orange and brown and fall from the trees… It’s a time of slowing down for me, to be introspective about our life and to plan for the rest of the year…
I was given some time to myself this weekend, by my very sweet hubby, he took all the children off to a mountain bike race on Sunday. The house was quiet, so strange, it’s usually quite noisy, and now, silent. At first I didn’t know what to do, hmmmm but don’t worry, I soon found my way. I went straight to my knitting basket and knitted a few rows on the shrug and then I started reading the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, I am enjoying it so far. On Saturday Richard took Caiden and Kye to the bunny park for a short while and I worked on a few new pattern designs.
Jenna earned her first aid badge for Sea Scouts this weekend, she is sewing on the badge at the moment, hence the pin. I am so proud of her, this badge allows her to help anyone that’s in need of first aid for the next three years and then she will do a refresher course.
I was also sad to find Harrietta, one of our chicken’s, ill yesterday, she is one of the oldest of our girls and looked so tired and just not well. This morning, I found her sleeping in the owl box, I was so relieved, I noticed that she had not gone out of the chicken house with the others. I dreaded going to look for her, fearing the worst. When I found her, she stood up, walked over to the feeding tray and started to eat. We are checking on her often and making her comfortable and hoping for the best.
Oh yes, before I forget, Natural Suburbia is now on Facebook too, I have put the link right up on the left hand sidebar, or you can find the page here.
