It’s been a rough week with my Bear injured in a car accident, me sick as can be with an awful flu, and caring for a very ill baby goat as the laundry piles higher and vacuuming goes undone.
It’s just been one of those weeks.
But in the midst of the pain and the illness there has been so much goodness.
Like deliciously warm sunshine on chilly winter days. I can’t get over how beautiful Australian winters are.
And learning how to make artisan bread in a cast iron pot. I confess I was giddy with happiness over how beautifully it turned out.
Is there anything more comforting than slices of warm bread slathered in creamy butter?
I love looking over from my sickbed and seeing Luna (my dog) sleeping beside the baby goat, licking her gently. So sweet.
Having life go topsy-turvy now and then makes me so grateful for all the little good things in my life: essential oils that make the house smell good, hot cups of tea and buttery toast soldiers, episodes of “Who Do You Think You Are” to keep me entertained.
I feel pretty darn lucky.
What little things are making your life good today?
