MORE BACKYARD CAPERS

A blog post celebrating the beauty in the everyday. I have found this to be one of the most therapeutic things about blogging.

Enjoying a bit of sunshine out in the backyard today. Hanging the washing out on the line.

Enjoying some favourite regular rituals of
feeding the chickens.

collecting the eggs

shooing the chickens away from the vegies

and giving them a good talking to when they invade the sandpit!


What everyday rituals do you have?

Mind you, it doesn’t always happen so peacefully and many days have me racing to get the washing on and off the line so we can go out, or hanging the clothes all through the house over the ducted heating vents because it is too wet outside and children pulling them off the vent onto dirty floors well in need of a mop. This is why it is so therapeutic for me to see that sometimes it does work.

A quote I found the other day in The Divided Heart reminded me of why I blog

“If you want to really hear yourself, write. Because you will hear.”

It is important for me as I get bogged down in the everyday to find the snippets of sunshine amongst the rest. I can feel like everything is going into utter chaos, but I take one look at my blog and see all was well and I have created something (apart from a messy house) for at least 5 mins of the day.
