Like magic

It was a..


sweet lovin',


breaky in bed type,


chooky,

soup making,



bunny creating,


Abba singing,


jonquil growing,



chalk drawing,


outdoorsy, wood collecting



egg gathering type of
Sunday.


A relaxing, family Sunday which was just what I needed as Friday was a blur of tears and feeling low, for no particular reason. Hormones? Melancholy..who knows. I didn't feel like making anything, talking to anyone, blogging. I felt overwhelmed by the household chaos, the cleaning, the cooking, the looking after of others. A blind came down and stayed down. Sometime during Saturday it eased up a little and by Sunday the sun was shining through my window again and we had a special, wonderful, lovely day. The house was full of happy sounds & smells, kids singing, soup bubbling away, Swedish gingerbread biccies were baking, our lovely neighbours visited. Spring was in the air & Rosie & Sunday went to the park, splashed in puddles and came home to a hot bath and spaghetti for dinner. As we were eating Rosie said quietly, "I love all of you, and Charlotte & Nan." Things don't always run smoothly do they?.. but when they do it's magic. Days you want to keep forever.

Lovely pictures and lovely thoughts - that's what memories are made of. Glad you had a good day - I am feeling too dozy to achieve anything! Maybe the answer is to sit on the sofa and knit!

I love the chook pic Beck. It is nice when you have a day where the sun is shining and makes your life feel like living, better than those horrible awful days. I do know exactly how you feel about them as I suffer them too. I hope you have many more bright days with your family and all those wonderful kids of yours to brighten things up!

low days help us realise how much better things can get I suppose...
but still they're no fun!
Glad to see your weekend ended on such a positive note -all lovely memories to treasure.

u sure know how to make the most of those up days, looks like a beautiful colourful creative whirlwind! i know what u mean about thoses ups & downs - seems like the domestic either totally overwhelms me with mess and clutter and chaos everywhere i look, followed by another day when all i see is attractive vistas around me and opportunities (usually when on a coffee buzz i must admit!)

I have had days like that were nothing seems right...but they do turn around and the sun comes out...
so glad it shone so bright for you cause those pics are gorgeous...

Well, I have been reading your blog on and off for a while now, but this post, because of its tenacious loveliness, affirmed that I should follow you. And so I will.

A beautiful post - so honest and real. You have a real gift for living (and blogging), Beck.

PS I just tagged you but it's completely optional. No pressure at all.
