Lying in the garden with Dylan in mismatched floral bathers, watching clouds in the sky
Jade green avocado halves lavished with goats cheese and sprinkled with jalapeño slices
Heavy sheaves of wisteria unfurling along the eaves like a languorous yawn
Getting excited about baby animals on the farm
Early evening strolls with the dog to sniff out scurrilous fox holes. Four were found around the chicken coop today- this means war!
Reading Roald Dahl classics to two avidly listening little faces at night by the fire while it’s still cold enough to light it
Dreaming about summer days and buying a boat
Putting the roof down on the car for the first time and feeling the eucalyptus wind on your face while you drive, happy as a doggy
Planning, planning and more planning of paddock and vegetable patch configurations
Spring cleaning the library books of cobwebs and getting endlessly distracted by reading random pages
Stopping at the driveway to see if you can spy breaking waves on the beach
Airing out the camping tents in anticipation
Rabbit hunting with Sean and the local butcher at dusk
and last but not least…
Discovering Dylan in her bathers, fur vest and wellies because the weather outside changes every 5 minutes!
