Gratitude Sunday..

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}


This Sunday I'm grateful mainly for this wonderful sunshine , which I feel we've all been desperate for after the wettest winter ever ..

The sun on my back as I work in the garden

The slow emergence of shoots bring a smile to my face

And A lay in .. Oh bliss !

Burning hands ... and ginger and lime

We celebrated Chinese New Year on Friday .. In a little way .. The year of the Horse brings promise of fortune and fun .. I changed the seasons table to reflect the day and we read our stories .. We then attempted some fortune cookies ..we managed but wow , what a faff , burnt hands for this mama .. They were tasty though .. I then cooked a simple vegetarian Chinese meal for tea and reu enjoyed smelling the ginger and the lime .. I love marking special days in the year .. X
