things i learned through august
Another month has ended and for us it means the end of winter. Yay! Bring on spring!
So what did I learn this month? Emily P. Freeman always reminds me to reflect, so here we go…
- A sensational attic room can be built, painted and carpeted in less than 4 weeks. It’s so much fun having a hideaway full of books, puzzles, games & activities.
- We have a lot of books. Okay, I’ve always known this, but moving just the fiction portion into the attic room made it very clear… we have a lot of books.
- There are some things that are much easier before children – trampolining is one of them… 🙂
- 30m from our front door are neighbours that we’ve never met. I should have already realised this since we live in a small cul-de-sac. However, the busyness of life meant I hadn’t. We really need to meet them.
- Macramé is therapeutic. My mum was passionately into macramé in the late seventies/early eighties and after whipping up a wall hanging this month for our lounge room I can understand why. 🙂
- Cherry blossoms mark this season for me. I’ve always loved cherry blossoms, but when our neighbour’s tree bloomed this month I realised I count on that tree to remind me spring is on its way.
- Some months have way too much on the calendar. Fortunately, we have made it through and I will do my best not to schedule as much into 31 days again!
I hope you’ve had a beautiful month and are looking forward to September whatever it may bring.
