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…

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. There are some things that are much easier before children – trampolining is one of them… 🙂
  4. 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.
  5. 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. 🙂
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
