This week I have been slowly getting back into some sort of a routine after our little adventure to Bali...
I forgot to tell you that my darling Pippi puppy went on her own little adventure to my auntie's house for 2 weeks. Well, I have to tell you, we came home to a very well-mannered little lady - it's like she grew up in 2 weeks! She had such a lovely time with my gorgeous auntie and her Poppy angel (a King Charles Cavalier).
I was afraid that Pippi would not remember me, but she gave me such beautiful cuddles when I went to pick her up, and my Auntie Sandra had painted this beautiful portrait of her that it made me cry!
I am so happy to have her home with me again - she really is a sweetheart...I know, I'm awful, but this does crack me up!
Anyway, I took her for a long walk yesterday and it was a beautiful sunny day...I bumped into a neighbour, and we chatted for almost an hour. I began to feel incredibly blessed and grateful for so many little things. When I got home, I tidied up a bit, then went outside and wandered around my garden. I marvelled at the little lettuces that I grew from seedlings and which the possums have decided to leave alone - no such luck with the silverbeet though - the little rascals have been nibbling the leaves!
The foxgloves I planted are also coming along nicely - I am beyond excited for them to bloom over summer - can't wait! See, little things...
This orchid is my pride and joy, and a source of much orchid envy from my parents, ha ha...it was a gift to us when Georgia was born, and I am ashamed to say, I do neglect it somewhat, but every year it rewards us with a spectacular show of these gorgeous blooms! Dad says it's not fair, because I don't look after it properly. But, there you go, sometimes things just are...
I also wanted to tell you I went to the movies to see EAT PRAY LOVE - oh, I loved every minute of it! I just 'got' it...if you know what I mean. And Julia Roberts is so very beautiful and that smile!
Ooh, do pop over to this blog http://www.ordinarycourage.com/ and see why perfectionism sucks! Creativity and living authentically is so much more fun and twice as interesting!
