In this moment
reading... The One Hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. OMG. How outrageously funny is this book?! I can't wait to find out what happens in the end. And I definitely want to watch the movie when it comes out in DVD too.
excited about... our farmstay. That's right, guys! Today, we are heading down South to stay on a farm for a few days with my parents who are visiting from Singapore. Wonder how Alexander will react to the chooks and the cows?
planting... an apple tree. My father has always wanted to plant a fruit tree in our garden so when Alexander grows up, he'll be able to (literally) enjoy the fruits of his grandfather's labour. Fingers crossed the tree will grow big and strong.
watching... Alys Fowler's The Edible Garden. She is my new hero and source of inspiration. I love how she mixes the concepts poly culture and edible landscaping to create a beautiful yet useful garden. Makes a lot of sense, really.
dreaming about... hot sand under my feet, and taking dips in the ocean. And that's about to become a reality as we have just finalised our holiday to Fiji...woots!
wishing... I had Stainmaster carpet so I won't have to worry about the boy and the dog bringing half the garden into the house every single day.
celebrating... Our wedding anniversary. Our third!
collecting... lots of little pine cones from the garden. I plan to make garland with them for Christmas, so be sure to stay tuned.
feeling... loved and very blessed.
loving... my vegetable patch. It is absolutely thriving this year. I've gone a bit mad and sown a heap of seeds - leeks, rhubarb, sunflowers, coriander, zucchini, rocket and eggplant and lots of little seedlings have sprouted. Hope to be able to enjoy some homegrown vegetables this summer.
