There is nothing quite like the spring sunshine after the winter and the promise of a new season ahead. Easter is well and truly on its way which is always a special time of year and reminds us of how blessed we really are.
When the dark clouds lift and you feel the warmth of the sun once again it seems that everything touched by its rays speak of new life and good things to come…. Summer!
This is a particularly special Spring for us as a family as we are awaiting the arrival of the latest addition to our nest. I am 39 weeks pregnant and although I appreciate what my body has been doing to grow this little person inside my belly I am pretty exhausted now and very ready for birth to come and pregnancy to finish.
My hospital bag is packed, which I was reluctant to put too much in as last time I remember not using much of it, however I have still managed to fill a bag, probably again with too much stuff!
Shilo has been soaking up some rays through the kitchen window and I can honestly say these sunny mornings lift my spirits. We haven’t been to visit the lambs this year as it is not recommended for pregnant mothers, however we are hoping to welcome some chickens into our coop later this year, so watch this space!!
We dont often need an excuse for a good walk but now the baby is ready to arrive we thought some walking might coax my body into labour and with a sunny but cool afternoon yesterday we took a trek up to the top of the valley and Josh my other half tried out his new/second hand lense for his camera.
I love watching Ayla in the outdoors, there is so much joy and freedom, we are truly blessed to live where we do.
I hope the sun has shown its face where ever you are and with the promise of Summer on its way there is such expectation in the air, I am really excited to see what lies ahead and for some fun outside.
Looking forward to getting the garden sorted, there is lots to be done, we are hoping to build a shed, do up Ayla’s wendy house, put the poly tunnel up and plant some fresh fruit and veg.
So watch this space! … I will also be looking out for some elderflowers again this year from our tree and perhaps have a go at making some elderflower champagne for the grown ups 🙂 as well as the cordial!
Hopefully next blog there will be four of us to photograph!
In the meantime if you get a chance to escape into the sunshine and walk somewhere you feel free, try putting your worries aside and escape for a moment! We could all learn a thing or too from children they really have a great out look on the world.
Jesus said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.”
