Mary, Bluebell, Berry, and the Wind.

Time to breathe for a moment I think... I'm talking abouy the whole family here and not just me! We've had one of those weeks - or few months really. (How did November get here so quickly!) Craziness! Car rides here and there, so many errands, so many plans to make, ideas to consider about the future, and so much to do. It's so easy to get lost in all the traffic of life without meaning to and eventually end up looking back at recent events needing one big long out breath! It is wonderful, though, to look back over the week in photos and to remember those moments of joy that came with all that activity - to be grateful for all that we have experienced and all that we are - to feel warm and safe in our little family unit that goes through the waves of life together (with cuddles!).

Halloween was another family affair with members of both sides getting into the spirit of our spring-flavoured celebrations.

Aria went as 'mary had a little lamb' after discovering the perfect sized crook at the craft store. This is my second attempt at asewing from pattern and she didn't want to take it off at the end of the day! Success!

We are continuing the traditions that we started last year - including the offerings from each person of lovely spring produce to be divided up for all at the end of the celebrations. What a display of abundance!

Aria and I enjoyed sitting in the sun. Aria chatted away while I made her some 'babies'. This one is named 'berry'...

This one is named 'bluebell', and she now lives with a little girl we met at the beach while having lunch with Aunty Kirsty. This little girl has asperger syndrome and was really taken with bluebell. It was incredibly touching. Aria chose bluebell to give to her and we could see that this little baby would be loved very much with lots of cuddles and kisses.

At our Steiner group we made a 'wind sock'. It just so happened that it was a very windy day - Aria had a lot of fun taking it out for a spin (as well as a spring coloured silk painted by some children at a local primary school to sell at their fete) while waiting for Dadda to come home on the train.

A perfect spring passtime! :)

With love, light, and peace
