LITTLE JOYS: 19th September 2022

Because it’s not the big goals and successes in life that bring true happiness, but the little joys that you choose to notice each day.

It’s been a week of slow work, self care, and nesting. I love this time of year but I can tend to feel a bit fragile and aimless too. I’ve got some time off coming up, to focus on personal projects and making some changes, but I fear feeling adrift and unproductive – I know I must work hard to keep my focus! Little joys keep me grounded and grateful when my task list is long.

I adore how the late morning sun shines through this croton, like stained glass.

Autumn feelings prompted tomato soup for lunch!

Morning reading.

Mystery feathers.

Spider alert! We’ve found a few noble false widows in the house lately. I’m not one to freak out about it, and am quite happy for them to eat other intruders, but I gently show each one to the door.

First conkers.

The colour of this neon pothos makes my heart happy.

My Mum crocheted this fabulous blanket for my baby niece. She’s amazing like that.

Added this gorgeous carnelian pebble to my gemstone collection. I am in love!

The courgettes in the garden keeping yellowing and giving up before they reach what I call a good size, so I’ve started harvesting them as tender young things instead.
