SIMPLE LITTLE THINGS MADE ME HAPPY TODAY.......

I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME WE LAID BACK ON THE GRASS AND LOOKED AT THE SKY THROUGH A GREEN CANOPY OF TREES.....

Just one of those glorious days, where we caught up on "stuff" around the property. We didn't rush around at breakneck speed..... I took the time to savour all those special little things around me. We had a pretty big week and were both feeling mentally tired. The weather was warm....insects buzzed lazily past.....birds flitted around us....

Pierre finally sat and relaxed and gave me one of "those" looks that melt your heart.....I spend so much of my time trying to discipline him and sometimes I just miss out on enjoying him. That was a nice moment........till he got up and decided to dig a hole in the grass...PIERRE!!!

Our son called this morning and we had a long, long chat on the phone......he didn't have to work today, and it was what I call " A quality call"...... not a rush job, not a text. Do you get annoyed by only getting texts and not hearing a voice? Or is it just me........

Our girls and boys have settled in and are so tame.....they ate out of my hand today.....egg production has begun..........

Fennel is being harvested......broad beans that were flattened by the Tuesday storm have recovered and the pods are almost ready to be picked......great recipe on its way....

The golden marjoram looked so gold this afternoon and all I can think of when I smell it, is..... pizza!

I'm in love with our Dogwood tree......

And what about my new Marimekko Tea Towels!  I got these at a favourite store of mine called Made By Others  they also stock gorgeous Marimekko clothing. Trouble is I don't want to use the tea towels for drying up...I just love them hanging around in my trees......

How did you spend your Sunday....did you savour special little moments? I hope so.......
