Hello! Can you believe it’s October already? The year has flown by… one day seems to flow into the next and before we know it, it’ll be Christmas!
So much has been happening since I last wrote here, our children are growing up into young adults, Jen is 21 now, Erin 19, Caid 17 and our little one Kye is 12 🙂 I miss those days when they were all still so small and we’d pile into the car and go on adventures together.
They have grown into the most amazing people and we still have adventures, sometimes. I really do try to be present each day to appreciate this time I have with them. I remember, not long ago, a mom was writing about her child going off to university and how we should appreciate and ‘be’ in the moment with our children, as time is fleeting and just races by, often without us noticing.
Here we are, my girls have gone off to university already but they still live at home as their uni is close, so I’m grateful for that.
Well, as October marches on, some news from my side of the world:
Rich and I have been riding again. I really need to do this more often!
Bailey and Sandy are such wonderful pets. Bailey keeps Sandy young at heart and seems to also have kept Sandy’s epilepsy at bay for now. She’s much more active with Bailey around and I think this helps.
Last month was my birthday month, Rich was overseas and sent me this lovely bouquet of flowers 🙂
My little shadow, Delilah, she loves following me when I go to feed the chickens.
We also had a magnificent eclipse recently. It was freezing outside but so worth it!
Caid and Kye painted Proteas aren’t they gorgeous?
We still have our beautiful feathered girls and they gift us with the best eggs, daily ♥
Christmas Ornament Swap:
Is anyone interested in participating in a Christmas Ornament Swap?
Susan wrote to me to ask if there would be one this year.
If you are keen, please post in the comments and I will write a post about it if we have enough people 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your week ♥
