It is days like this I most treasure. Quiet, unassuming days, filled with normal, everyday things. Activities that mark the foundation of our family, that lend a comforting and wholesome atmosphere. The little things that my kids will hopefully one day look back on with a warm fondness and a lightness in their hearts.
Afternoon baking cupcakes with the kids, watching their little hands busy at work -sprinkling "hundreds and thousands", choc-mint vermicelli, starts, polka dots... eager to take a bite into their cupcake...
Me..I love to wait....first clean up the mess, stack the dishwasher, get the counters nice and tidy and clean again, a quick sweep...wait while they run off to go and play Lego. Then I put the kettle on and make a cup of Earl Grey tea, grab my cupcake and my book and sneak off to my room to savor the few moments of peace...delving into a book I am so enjoying,
savoring the yummy warm cupcake and glace icing and enjoying the aroma of the citrus in the tea...sigh....heaven♥
Another Domestic bliss today was after cleaning my bedroom, I lay my crocheted blanket I am working on across my bed. (yes, the reveal!) It is not finished. In fact it is probably just shy of half way. I want it to cover most of my bed and hang down at the sides and bottom at least half a meter....so a lot of work to go still and THIS time, I WILL finish it in time for winter. I work on it a bit everyday and do at least a row or two a day, so it goes quickly.
See you tomorrow!
