Family Sunday today. Or as the kids call it ‘No Computer Sunday’.
Today we took a drive out to the forest to get some more wood for winter. It’s usually a big day – pack a picnic, drive, cut wood, eat, load up & home. About 6 hours today…. & when we get home we have to unload, unpack the esky & everyone is generally exhausted.
But we love it!!
Small boy always finds a stick (or staff, as the small wizard prefers to call it), & then overturns logs, uproots mushrooms, whacks trees & fights all sorts of imaginary battles.
Daughter usually finds a shady spot & keeps reading whatever book she is going on at the moment. She’ll get herself a ‘staff’ as well, & sometimes does battle with her brother.
& I watch him like a hawk. Call me paranoid, but chainsaws can be nasty.
Today I found a shady tree as well. It was lovely. I had a view to die for – out over the valley to the forested hills on the other side. I did a bit of reading & a bit of gazing – all the while keeping my eye on the chainsawing!!
And I thought I’d share our favourite picnic spot with you…..
How was your Sunday?
