My 14 year old is a bit into photography at the moment. I love it when I upload my photos onto the computer and there are some of his there.
These ones were taken over the road from our house.
These were taken on one of his walks.
Now for Saturday's post.....
I started the day with a bit of blog reading.
Loving Kim's new kitchen. I'm a bit envious actually. When we built our home we had a second hand kitchen put in and I've never liked it. I don't like the colours or the design. It annoys me a bit because I spend so much time in there. I think I might open a new bank account and call it "The Kitchen Fund Account". I'll say to my boys "Imagine the food you'll get when I have a kitchen that I actually like?" A great plan, I think.
Click on the link above to have a better look. Kim is an Interior Designer and is super talented. She is an expert nest featherer. I can't wait to see the kitchen when it's finished.
Writing in one of my journals. The one where I plan my day.
In this bin we have liquid fertiliser. Water plus weeds, horse manure, worm wee, a bit of chook poo. Whatever you have available. I'll also add some seaweed. We keep it in the vege patch yard so it's nice and handy. Jackie french has some great info on making your own brew. I'll do a post on it one day.
The 'brew', sorry if you're in the middle of breakfast.
The compost bays that the boys set up. We're using the compost on the right at the moment. I can't believe all the worms in it.
The calendula plants we had in last spring have self seeded. This is our first flower for the season. I grow them for their beauty, to attract bees and I use the petals in my soap making.
The little patch I worked on today. It contains calendula, celery and lettuce. I am using the pots as snail and slug collectors. Each morning I go out and check them. There is usually a slug or two in them. I am going to buy some more pots to put around the garden. I love the look of them too.
Some calendula that has self seeded. I find it very difficult to thin them out. I might put the left overs in little pots to give away or scatter through the garden, both I think.
Then it's inside for a smoothie. Milk, cacao powder, honey and spinach. I saute the spinach in a bit of coconut oil before blending it.
I bought the mini tramp back inside this morning. In my efforts to reduce clutter I put it out the back, but I found I was forgetting to use it. So it's back inside. Sometimes I don't feel like going for a walk, whereas I don't mind doing 5-10 mins on the tramp, here and there through the day. It's amazing how those 5-10 mins here and there all add up. I also find it gives me a burst of energy to then get a few tasks done. Love the endorphins too.
Some washing, there's always washing. Can you tell I live with three boys?
I'm working on my first mood board, as an adult. When I was growing up I use to make posters with pictures on it that I liked. It made me feel good. I'm not too keen on cutting into those Country Style magazines. I've only picked a few of my older ones.
A glass of wine to go with a lovely task. Nice and relaxing on a Saturday afternoon.
This was followed by some study. I'm finding it a bit hard to keep the momentum going at the moment. I'm half way there though and I do love what I'm learning. A lecture by Dr Mark Hyman today.
I need to remember to put our kale seedlings up though or they would soon disappear.
I found these beauties while I was out there.
Some celery waiting to be planted in the garden.
I'm enjoying this rocket.
Some more beauties.
I hope your Saturday was a lovely one. What did you get up to?
