The fact that I am sharing our weekend wanderings with you and it is already Tuesday here in Oz should give you some idea of how my week is going so far!
I’m still trying really hard to fit blogging in with all the extra work of actually returning to work as an educator. I thought about giving it up for a bit but I really do love blogging, it is my escape and hobby …and my time even if it is normally at midnight each night! My apologies if I haven’t answered the comment you have left recently, I really do appreciate them and am trying to get there I promise.
This weekend was a bit of a challenge on the behaviour front if I am to be honest…but keeping the girls busy outside did help distract from the wrong clothing, wrong colour drink cup and wrong plate and socks drama. Personally, I needed a glass of wine to ease the aforementioned drama 😉
We did have a productive weekend though with 3 big projects finished…I think we may be working Daddy a little hard but I promise I help too!
My lightbulb moment for the weekend occurred when I was feeding the chooks and spied this dead log sitting in the corner. His patient self has grown to dread these moments of inspiration!
Imagine me standing up the top of the hill in the chook pen yelling down to him in the yard to look what I had found….would be perfect for a music tree I said! He looked at me for a minute and I could see the question forming and then he sighed and trudged up the hill to help me bring it down.
I know he doubted me but look what we created!
The next project was also inspired by a pile of branches we have sitting in the top paddock (because we want to make something with them of course!). I knew they would be perfect for building a quick and easy teepee….
After preparing the logs we had some bark left over…it made a perfect little ‘fire’ outside the teepee!
