in the evening
Summer finally arrived a few weeks ago in our little corner of the world. Daylight saving, which had seemed a little odd mixed with cold weather, has now given us extended warm evenings, and if we're lucky a sea breeze makes its way through our valley. Odd, I know, considering we don't live anywhere near the sea. But there you have it.
So we've been eating a little earlier in the evenings. Cleaning up quickly because nobody likes to come back inside to dirty dishes (I know I don't). We've been watering the garden, planting seedlings in the vegie garden, and filling up some old pots that have been sitting around empty forever.
Last night when the kids went to bed we made a coffee and sat on the verandah. We watched the moon, the stars and listened to the frogs croaking. Sometimes it's the simple, quiet moments, the few still moments in the chaos of everyday life, that make you realize that life is indeed good.
