I have been having a bit of a Facebook detox of late.
Just getting back to basics, taking a step back and simplifying things a bit more.
I do it at least once a year, when my mind starts feeling a bit mentally drained.
As we all know, the little moments continue to tick by, to appear at any given time, on any given day, so here I share with you some of my recent little moments.
All of these photographs have been taken in the last few weeks.
Kiara collecting shells on a visit to the beach. I love seeing how the beach calms my kids as much as it calms and soothes my soul. The beach is really my happy place.
Noah found the meditation app I had downloaded to my phone.
He went on it and proceeded to follow all the instructions, it was beautiful to watch!
Took the kids to the local zoo, the Bearded Dragon kept putting it’s paw against the glass as if to say “Hi!”
Noah was concerned with the fact this lizard had “Dragon” in it’s name and was waiting for it to breathe fire at us!
We got to see some other lovely animals, including Koalas, Cassowaries and Kookaburras, all wonderful Australian animals.
The zoo also has the biggest snake I have ever seen!
It is a python that can grow up to 200kg in weight! arrghhhhhh!
Made me feel a bit uneasy after I found a snake skin in our backyard the other day……….. thankfully the skin was no where near as big as the one on this baby though!
Pinterest inspired me to try out this funky hair style on Kiara and myself.
I recreated it for her for school today, along with some funky hair clips.
Kiara came home happy to announce that her friends think her Mummy is pretty clever, that made my day, seeing I usually lack any hair styling skills.
Storm smiling at me through the dirty door.
Whilst chilling out on the hammock, our dog Zen decided to join me for a cuddle!
My dreams for a lovely backyard garden seem to be constantly hindered by two digging loving dogs, so I was pretty impressed to find this Desert Rose flowering in our backyard, saved by the dogs, beauty in among a huge mass of destruction.
I got to ride in the back of the car with my kids recently.
It gave me a whole new perspective of travelling, seems like forever since I have been in the back of the car.
Kiara and Noah held my hands along the way, it was lovely.
As I prepare to publish this post, this is the sight at my feet.
A short time ago a loud, unknown explosion went off in our neighborhood.
When I went out in the backyard to investigate, our two dogs raced inside, scared and shaking.
They have found a spot at my feet, and as I rubbed their tummies to make them know all is ok, they slowly calmed down.
It is not just them that are comfy right now!
I hope things are well in your world right now,
and no mater what is going on,
may you find a moment in your day to take some time out
to think of the little moments in your life.
( Can I count on someone to remind me of this too?!)
