We came back from a mini break in Southern France, my husband and me. It was 3 days of only the two of us and a true blessing. If there is something I regret throughout the last 15 years, it is that we haven't taken time for ourselves enough. But when living abroad and not having family around, it isn't the easiest thing to organize. So those getaways have been far down on our priority list for many years, but now we are starting to make it happen.
The kids are back to school and I through myself into cleaning the whole house and run 4 loads of laundry yesterday while the sun was out. Because that is what you do when you return with enormous energy from a few days away with your love. Today is a different story with rain and overcast, the yellow tree by the shed is the only thing shining when I look out the window. And the cats, they are always such a joy to watch. They are incredible pretty too, I have to admit. Maya with her wide stripes looking a bit like a Bengal cat and Izzy with her tall posture and intense eyes. Many have asked if they are breeded cats, but no. Maya and Izzy are farmer cats from the same litter. I do suspect the father might have a bit of a Bengal in him though...
I've spent most day indoors, making colorful Tilda circles for a color chart and working on a new exciting project. So far I've finished 24 Tilda circles while enjoying tea and home baked Chocolate Chip Cookies that Nelly Bo made. And the new project is still in early years... I will share more about it later when it starts to take form.
