weekend reads and a thing I did.

I did a thing, and it is pretty cool.

Sitting down and reading all the wonderful articles over breakfast. 

Small, green habits that add up

I have been reading a bit about climate change anxiety recently and with it's with good reason people feel anxious about our environment.  When we look at the state of our world and the rate of which we are trashing it, it can feel like we are watching a train wreck in motion, powerless to do anything about it.

Our new compost heap!  

Weekend Reads and pizza pockets

I'm getting the hang of baking in the wood Aga, after a couple of spectacular failures.  I have moved back to baking an ordinary bread over sourdough for a while, I'm frustrated I can't consistently make an excellent loaf, so I have moved back to what I can do well.  

Finding our new normal

Life is getting so much easier now we are in the yurt, and as a family, we are far more settled and relaxed.  Each night as I tuck the boys in, I am so thankful they are in warm, clean, dry beds surrounded by their beloved stuffed toys.  It is such a small and ordinary thing but by golly, it makes me happy. 

A close encounter

There have been a few comings and goings in our family recently.  My beautiful Max the cat is gone without a trace.  I suspect a snake might have got him as he was such a homebody and never strayed far.  Gosh, I loved that cat, he was the friendliest most patient cat I have ever met.  The boys miss him terribly, especially Henry.   

Max, the sweetest cat I have ever known. 

Getting the Aga working

The boys caught this morning for the first time and goodness it was lovely to quickly nip down the driveway and back again.  I was home an hour and twenty minutes earlier than usual. 

I can't believe the difference having the yurt up has made.  We are no longer constantly running into each other and everyone has their own little space.  It rained all Friday night and Saturday, and I was so very thankful that we were tucked up warm and dry in the yurt, able to watch movies and play board games.  If we had of been camping, it would have been utterly miserable, cold and muddy.  This place is slowly beginning to feel like home.  Routines are becoming established and that feels really good.
