November


Autumn has been an uneven season so far.

Too many things are happening and as I said before, I constantly feel the need to slow down but somehow ain't managing.

In view of this, I decided to build a weekly calendar of activities and other things that need be doing.  A schedule to help balance the need of everyone.  The only unforeseeable is my clients as a Breastfeeding Counselor - as they come in fits and can take a lot of hours and days out of my week.  It is good that I am having clients but I am  still first and foremost the mother of 2 very young children and so I need to give them their routine and schedule.  Heck I need it myself!

Towards living the season: pumpkin carving, All Soul's Day cookies, St Martin's feast and of course Advent will soon start.

Towards nurturing the bodies: more time outside, warming healthy foods to keep the sickness at bay and warm clothing - even though our weather doesn't seem much cold right now.

Towards tending the home: another Spring cleaning session is soon due....its mainly just me holding back in view of waiting for new tiles to come and be laid.

Towards nurturing the spirit: learning Religion through activities, stories and trying to be of the best example possible.  I have to say that for the past month I have been very pleased with my own results on temper holding and discipline giving.  I am so thankful for all the guides I have been having to help me along the way.

Towards giving grace:

211. hearing I love you many times
212. lots of hugs and kisses to his younger sister
213. progress at our house
214. clients for me
215. being sick - a reminder to slow down
216. lots of fun things to look forward to
217. lots of help
218. time alone with hubs
219. cosy duvets
220. bargaining while playing

I need to do some scheduling myself. Settling into a new place and a new routine is leaving a bit of chaos in my life. We'll get there together ;-)
