We are sick yet again. It's Miss G's grade 6 graduation dinner this week. I have to finish the place cards.
I adjusted my dress as I felt it was a bit 'showy'. Some antique and vintage lace, new shiny patent heels and a black necklace should do the trick.
The transition from school to school to school for Miss G in the last 18 months has been huge. She has been so strong, but still I worry about her. She reminds me of me, holds it together and then seems to show a bit of anxiety. We talk lots and I pray she has good role models and some new friends come into her life. She is blessed to have a kindred little spirit at her school They actually really remind me of Anne Shirley and Diana!
My first ever harvest of organic garlic has turned out well, I should have planted some more. This might last us about three months!
Master S and his best mate Master T went fossicking on Sunday after church.... They came home with treasures for me to sell at my stall! How sweet! They found some amazing things too! They will definitely have to take a cut for these! I will wrap some jute around these legs to give it a new lift.
And a gloss red table - cute and quirky.
I am in love with making miniature gardens... the dreams of little wonderlands is never ending. I made some little nests this morning.
Squiggly Rainbow is on the waiting list for two big local markets.... but this Saturday we are going to be at a smaller community market in Monbulk. It is at St Georges Church, on the main street, by the roundabout.... Maybe you will come and visit me and have a trip to the hills!
Lots has been happening, we lost Mr DCT's great grandmother and fare-welled her yesterday. The boys attended their first funeral and handled it so well. Family drama flaws me at times. Greed and selfishness lead to such pain and destruction.
This past week many contemplative thoughts have been running around my head. It is not new to come to conclusions about destruction, pain and loss. I think my conclusion is that selfishness and greed overshadow what is right and what is good and what is love.
Sometimes I love reading blogs when I can get to know the blogger and relate to their thoughts and feel that connection. I am wary to discuss these major thoughts I have had of late as it really will open huge cans of worms. Why do we sweep aside passionate issues and shrug our shoulders and mandate that we all have an opinion and what is right is given no worth - because in the end they are just opinions. What about integrity?
What do you think? Is it important to blog and discuss what we are passionate about? Or do you readers prefer skimmed surfaces?
Much Love Rach xx
