The Beauty of the Woodland

On Sunday, after the small one had woken from her afternoon nap, we went for a walk at a nearby reserve. I’m not a great fan of walking as a pass time, but my opportunities for exercise are currently limited  so off we went. And I’m so glad we did because it gave me the opportunity to slow down and open my eyes, look around me, at the ground and above my head. It’s nice to be reminded of  life beyond my own existence!

The woodland was beautiful. Green is such an undervalued colour! We took a camera and a foraging pocket book and just enjoyed our surroundings. A wood is an incredibly serene place considering the sheer amount of life it sustains.

And of course, a pram is not ideal for negotiating narrow muddy paths, steep tracks, steps or stiles, so the small one was happily worn on my back in the Melkaj where she was comfortably carried for 2 hours. How else would we be able to share the pleasue of these places with her?

Stiles? No problem!

We really enjoyed our walk, I’m looking forward to returning, especially in the autumn when the leaves will be turning…

Embracing the Everyday Stuff

Wow, what can I say, lots going on! Now I just have to work on my time management skills if I want to get much done…

I’ve been sleeping better this past week, I’ve spent a bit of time every day with the ponies, and even ridden a handful of times. My little girl is worn by her Daddy and really enjoys the walk down the lane together. It was a bit of a shock to the system to be back in the saddle after a two and a half year break but it was like I’d never been away.

Our gorgeous toddler Melkaj carrier arrived and its gorgeous, I LOVE the funky modern blue and black paisley even more than the embroidered hummingbird design. And its incredibly comfortable as well as being a much better shape and design for our little one compared to the very basic mei tai we were using before. On the subject of design I’ve got something in mind that I’m working on when I can snatch 10 minutes hands free time. Details to follow, probably in the next month or so.

Overall I’m feeling good. We are rolling along slowly but surely which is all I can ask for. I’m trying to find time to do some aura and intuitive readings but its hard to find the headspace and it can be tiring, especially interpreting the information. Guess I need to loosen my grip and stuff will just flow…
