hello school It has been a very long two weeks here. The kids haven't been able to entertain themselves at all, and have spent most of the last week bickering and fighting. And the second Douglas got home, he joined in. I'm looking forward to some quiet today.
hello baking school is back, so we need food for the lunch boxes. And a friend shared this link to dog treats, so I'm going to get stuck in and bake for the kids and the dog.
hello morning pages I decided on Saturday that I was going to start morning pages again. It's been years since I've actually sat down and done them, but I need to get some of the noise out of my head, and this feels like a great way to get started. [Morning pages as written about by Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way are about stream of conscious writing first thing each morning "called a brain dump, as that is one of their main functions" (pg10)]
hello walking So we've been a bit slack, not taking Daisy out of the house for walks (but spending lots of time in the back yard throwing balls and letting her chase the neighbour's dog along the fence line), but Steve managed to get out early this morning and take her around the block a few times and she loved it, so we're going to try to do it more regularly.
hello Monday, a new start every week
