Ahoy there me hearties.

A photo a day as part of this. here's the last week. xox
music. You can't beat the energy of a live gig. The shins, Festival Hall.

time spent with friends and the colour they add to our lives. The connections, generosity and humor of these friendships is so, so gratefully accepted.

the reminder that with doing something everyday, comes strength. Meditation, gratitude, exercise, ..... What's your prayer?

gifts and afternoons spent building Lego with my little man. My Dad returned from his trip to Vietnam with 'Pirate' Lego for z & a gorgeous bag and scarf for me. Love them, thank you.

beautiful fabric. I dressed in my brightest outfit to give me some oomph. Gastro! Blah.

playfulness. Our library has installed a self scanning check out and one of the the language options is 'Pirate speak'.... Shiver me timbers!

Z's determination. He carried this big stick all the way home. After strategising the fastest route, two rest stops and a lot of panting, he made it.

Just bust a move.... you want it..... you got it

Among the ever expanding list.... here's what made it to my Gratitude Project this week.
starting the day with a smile.

a soundly sleeping lad at the end of the day. So peaceful. My heart melts every single time.

a night out with the girls, in a beautiful building to support a great cause.

to be home after a long day. Late + tired = Bed is calling. Just waiting for the kettle to boil.

a slow morning. A walk to the cafe. A few friends. A stop at the sandpit, conservatory & pond. Then a slow amble home in time for kinder preparations. A perfect way to spend the morning. I cherish these mornings knowing they really wont last forever.

some time alone...one may even call it a date... with the LF and a little road trip to Red Hill.

a balmy 16 degree winters day by the bay with my boys.

What made your list this week?

Things I am thankful for....

kindness & being able to express it. Not only to others but also myself. I opened a book and read a page randomly today and it was about kindness towards oneself...it was the perfect page to be on. A little reminder, on days when I can be super critical of myself, helps.
It was a paragraph from Susannah Conway's book " This i know":.... 'So many of the difficult parts of our lives can be helped with a little kindness, and nowhere is that needed more than the way we view ourselves. If we cannot be kind to ourselves, how can we be kind to anyone else? It's easy to give love to my family and friends, but to then turn around and ridicule my own reflection so heartlessly surely takes the power out of the love I give.'

time to do some upholstery today while Z was off on a play date.

kid friendly entertainment, especially when it's fun for all. Fox & Sui played a crybaby session at RRR... 11.30am!

my Dad.

the beauty of age. These Morton Bay Fig trees are so beautiful. They remind me that just like our own natural beauty, if nurtured, we have the potential for exceptional beauty in old age.

the silly things in life. I was reading an article about feeding children preservative free, organic etc etc and at the bottom they recommended a lady who specialized in 'panty' makeovers... A simple typo... panty/ pantry.... I see how it happened and I am so thankful it did because it totally cracked up.... Childish humor is so underrated.
Anyone for a little panty makeover ....or some organic fruit??

completing jobs! I love the sense of achievement that comes when I complete a job. Especially one that's been on my mind....

I know I said no words for July...but all of these words go into my Gratitude project so it's just as easy to share them here too. I'd love to know what made you grateful last week. x
