bubbling ideas of making and creating
for me and also
Monkey craft projects
that bring a smile
that centres and stills
listening to rain
on little plants growing
simple food delights
remembering to breathe
dipping hands in dough
preserving the season
giggles with hide and seek
a kids party
tired little feet
which brings on
afternoon snuggly siestas
holding that moment
* Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my reconnecting with nature, city style post. Every comment was truly appreciated, thank you for taking that time. Some reminded me of things, some inspired me and some just prompted me to do more.
I love it when you do these sorts of posts 🙂 They leave me in a slightly sleep, dreamy state myself – in a good way. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
Thanks Kari 🙂 I hope you had a good weekend.
Just read the post you refer to above, sorry that I missed it earlier. Sounds like you’re having a lovely weekend right now – snuggly siestas – I could do with one of those, it’s damp and grey today here!
It was damp and grey here yesterday too, I think that’s what induced the snuggly siestas…
Oh strawberry jam. We’re coveting the few jars I made this year.
I need to make more, as it was only a small batch and those little jars are like gold aren’t they.
Have a happy week.
Thanks Mandy, you too.
lovely, evocative post, you are a beautiful writer.
Oh thank you Chutney and Spice, that’s really kind
I’m going to make strawberry jam this week – will have a go at yours for sure! I was all set to be brave and try a very basic bread on Friday and then spent the afternoon chasing cattle! Maybe one day this week…
Hmm, cattle chasing sounds much more important than bread!
I’m loving strawberry season at the moment.
Glad you found some sun, it was raining cats and dogs here yesterday! Looks like a fun weekend, Brydie! 🙂
No, it was decidedly soggy here yesterday as well Celia. Bet your garden loved it though 🙂
i read and reread your poem because it is so beautiful and evocative..and it prompted me to think about making strawberry jam..so thankyou brydie..
Thank you Jane. Anything that prompts a batch of strawberry jam making is good I think
Crafting and food – sounds like the ideal weekend to me! I made a batch of strawberry jam last weekend too. Surely beats the shop variety for taste doesn’t it? Your bread looks amazing too!
How lovely! Sounds perfect.
Love the little monkey’s eyes and hair behind those cardboard rolls!
And your fabrics are lovely in shades of blue and green.
Bread and jam are always high on my list of good things.
A truly satisfying post all around, Brydie.
I’m inspired to do SOMETHING!
