a good at home kind of day
I've made a few changes to the routine of my day. I've never been one for routines, but if I think about it my days at home do follow a loose kind of routine. I've stopped blogging early in the morning. I'm slowing down a little for breakfast. I take the kids to school and then I make a coffee and sit down to blog. Knowing that the dishes are done and the bed made.
Yesterday after hanging the washing out, I noticed that Violet didn't want to come back inside. So I did something I don't usually do. I grabbed my knitting and sat outside while she played. Soaked in a bit of the Wintery sun and listened to the stillness. I think it's something I need to do more of.
Lunch has always been a hurried kind of meal for me. But yesterday I started sitting at the table just my food and I (no reading allowed!). I enjoyed that leftovers meal of baked bread, cold scrambled egg (I never knew you could eat it cold and it would actually taste quite good) and kale, ricotta and roast pumpkin salad. I was glad I'd saved it the night before.
It was a good at home kind of day.
