7 pieces of randomness

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

  1. I start the new week prepared but not prepared. The essentials ~ grocery shopping and laundry ~ are done and Christmas shopping almost complete but I feel like I’ve forgotten something.
  2. This is a momentous week for us ~ the eldest is finishing primary school. On the other side of these summer holidays we will have a high-schooler and while being a little misty-eyed, we’re excited for this next chapter.
  3. Every week I clear off my desk, here where I sit now, and every week a new pile of random papers appear to my left. Where do they come from?!
  4. I can’t wait for Christmas ~ lazy days and presents. I’m ready.
  5. I can wait for the hot weather. We’ve been blessed with a somewhat mild start to the season but this week the temperatures are starting to climb. Thinking cool thoughts.
  6. Out of all the gifts I have to buy this year, I think Kris Kringle gifts for work colleagues are the hardest.
  7. The birds start chirping at a ridiculous hour but we are lucky to have many of them in our neighbourhood and it makes me happy to see them hopping around the garden looking for grubs. On a side note, I saw a family of plovers the other week complete with three little chicks. I hadn’t seen the babies before and they are the cutest balls of fluff!

    Gwen finishes her first year of P.S. It has been an excellent year for her and a holiday is definitely in order.
    We’ve also had the pleasure of watching baby [common black] birds hatch and grow on our property. Taking photos of their progress, I felt like a suburban David Attenborough.
    I am thinking about projects for the new year, as you do this time of year. Am I crazy to now want to learn jewellery making and working with metals?

      We have blackbirds, too, in our garden. We haven’t seen the nest but see mum and dad a lot. They are cunning – don’t let you see where they are going back to! New skills are always a good plan!
