I’m afraid there’s no Harvest Monday for me today, everything’s started to slow down in my garden since the cool change came in. As much as I miss finding new things ready to eat on a daily basis, I haven’t missed the heat – I’ve been able to wear a jumper and had to go hunting for a heavier weight sleeping bag for Olivia this morning! The cold could explain why she didn’t sleep well last night, but she’s five months old, who knows why these things happen.
Our Easter weekend has been pretty low key; we celebrated a friends birthday at a boardgame cafe in the city on Thursday, had a barbecue at my sister’s on Friday and dinner with Pete’s family on Sunday night for his and his father’s birthdays.
Now I’m nestled on our couch with Olivia asleep snuggled up to me, and Pete re-arranging the living room around us. We’re hoping the new set up will be more baby-friendly since she’ll start crawling at some point soon and after that, it’s a steep learning curve through walking, climbing and securing furniture to walls.
Dinner is on the stove and I’m looking forward to a nice warming bowl of chilli, hopefully with enough leftovers for tomorrow.
Last week for me was a bit of a flurry of activity and I’m looking forward to a bit of downtime this week – I might get another one of these guys made!
