* soaking and cooking white beans

* making Carrot and Ginger Soup

* sorting seeds ready for planting

* breakfast outside on both days.....soaking up the sun and it's beautiful warmth......watching and listening to our girls (chooks)......listening to the birds.......enjoying the view......checking on the newly planted seeds and feeling happy that a couple of rocket seeds are up.....thankful for rocket, the seeds sprout and pop up in only a few days after planting, always reliable, tasty and so good for you.....watching my husband and youngest son get ready for a morning of cutting and delivering wood......feeling thankful that my big boy gets his plaster off tomorrow and hoping he is back on both feet very soon, he is missing his daily walk

* perennial basil

* planting seeds in these boxes.....they don't dry out as much, it's less fiddly and it's quick

* carrying my favourite cup around with me.....sipping on water...... always sipping on makes me feel  good

* made Broccoli Pesto

* enjoying the rhythm of my days.....a little bit of work, a little bit of rest......some time inside, some time outside

Hope your weekend was a lovely one.

xxoo Julie
