I Love Carterton - The Simple Things
Here in this blog, this is where I like to share little tidbits about my days, but this space is also my reminder of steps in my journey. And in amidst the busy-ness that is life at this time of the year, I am all about enjoying the simple things.
So #3 on the list of 'why I love where we live' is The Vegie Garden. Back in our rentals in Melbourne we would daydream endlessly about what our backyard would be like when we moved and had our own home. All daydreams involved a vegie garden. I want to learn how to garden ~ how to not only grow pretty flowers that I can bring in and put in old milk bottle vases on the windowsills, but together with the kids how to grow our own vegies. And finally, this past week, we have our vegie garden. Nothing extravagent, just a few lettuces, tomatoes, peas, strawberries and marigolds to start with. I am in love with this garden. It represents so much to me, for our family. Every time I look at it out the kitchen window, I smile.
What simple things are you enjoying right now, as life gets busier?
