Christmas Concerts

December 14th

Many years ago, when we first set up our Advent Activity calendar we were preparing to head up north to spend Christmas with the grandparents and all the cousins at the farm. We included this activity and it has come in handy every few years depending on where we are going to spend Christmas day. On the years that we aren't heading north (like this year) this little card is a pause in the Advent calendar. It is a 'take a deep breath' card. A 'do whatever feels right today' card. I think the thing that feels right today will be a long afternoon swim.
I hope your Christmas preparations and end of year busyness are going well and that you can take a few minutes to rest today if you need it before diving back in for the final stretch.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Heart full.

Making Rainbows

The swings at the playground leave a rubbery, black residue on my hands. We're here a lot so I often look like this. Did I just change a tyre? Am I a part-time blacksmith? No, I am a pusher of ducklings. One little duckling in particular.

I Found a Rainbow

A cheerful bench from my neighbourhood for all my American friends who are feeling a little shellshocked today.

Ti Amo

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Siracusa was spectacular. A heart-singing, soul-springing place for a cloudwatcher and blue sky lover like me. All the duyvkens, walking together, enjoying the blue, chatting, laughing, playing, eating. It was quite a day. Ti amo indeed!

Looking Up

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

I can't help wondering what kinds of lives are people living in the rooms behind those windows.
