Monday's Multitudes

Finding joy in an overwhelming and scary world where nothing is as it should be....

movie night with the teens
an hour long phone call with a dear friend
fridge full of healthy food
granadilla blossoms daily
just picked ripe tomato
peppers growing in the garden
teens who do their chores without complaining
my dad's call
a wonderful evening out with friends
good reports from my son's employer, thankful that his work is going well
a gift from my girl, my favorite cookies
my sweet nephew on stage for his school concert, blessed to be there and witness the cuteness
coffee and chats with a friend
a good night's sleep
dinner with my oldest
Sunday worship
a walk with my youngest out in the fresh air
my girl's baking
my brother and his little family visiting for the evening

Weekly Wrap-Up: Back At It

It's been a while since a weekly wrap-up post.
 There has been a short school holiday and now we are in the fourth and final term of the year.
 It feels good to be on the final stretch. 

Much of Keren's time has been spent on art and she had her grade 11 exhibition. 

 It was lovely to see her work on display and see what others in her class have produced too. 

She has also dedicated time to her practicals for consumers and has been baking delicious desserts, much to her brother's delight! 

Jam and chutney were made too.

The task of completing the terms work and final exams lie ahead. 
I have no doubt that she will continue to excel. 

Zak has been focused on his work and we have enjoyed some nature study too.

 It's wonderful to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and all that spring has to offer. 

Flowers of the fields, 
insects collecting pollen, 
birds chirping and long grasses dancing in the breeze...
all food for the soul!

A good start to the fourth term.
