serene sundays...

Sundays are a time for sleeping in, having late, long and wholesome breakfasts, sipping tea, reading the paper, planning the meals for the week, trips to the market, mending, cleaning, reorganizing, recharging, spending time with family and friends, reading books, playing in parks, taking naps in the sun, baking bread or any of the above in combination.
In light of this, I will categorize my Sunday entries as “serene sundays” and put up photos that describe my mood, thoughts, ideas, inspiration or general weekend goings-on, instead of writing an entire entry.


Things to do with a very bored and stir-crazy 15 month-old toddler on a
RAINY SUNDAY with NO CAR and NO HUSBAND:


1. Watch the rain on your couch with a friend



2. Have a snack and share it with a friend


4. Play some instruments and DANCE!


3. Draw with crayons on big pieces of paper


5. Hand the toddler over to grandparents for a few hours while Mama has a cup of tea, sews up the last of the Christmas presents and enjoys a little bit of piece of quiet...

(this is me sighing with relief... but the sick and twisted part is- he's been gone 10 minutes and I already miss him)

I just found your blog through the Samadhi website and I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading it. Also, are you Canadian? I'm a Canadian transplant living in Sydney :)

Hi Fern,

Glad you're enjoying looking around this funny space of mine. Yes, I am Canadian- east coast toronto- have been living here just over 3 years (spent my first 2 in sydney). And I love Oz... but boy do I miss home sometimes- especially when the holiday season hits- I'd kill to be able to dress in a warm "sweater", drink some soynog, and sit by a huge fireplace! xox m.

So no go there and Hubby doing a 24hr guard duty at the barracks...I did bake another cheesecake and made another hat. Other then that tried to stay off my feet, the swelling has kicked in..NOT FUN..

Hi! It's "fern" from the 1st comment, I just wasn't signed in. I'm from Vancouver but I have family in Toronto. I know exactly what you mean about missing home, which is why I'm so excited to be going home for christmas next week! I hope you have a lovely, warm Christmas in Melbourne.
