I am just grateful we weren't in our tent with a sick guy in the torrential rain.
What we did do, was stay put, in Jed's second favourite place in the world. His godfather and family's lifestyle farm and horse HQ in the Taranaki.
Free range chickens, pet sheep, horses, baby rabbits, dog, birds, paddocks and bush... all that space to run and just well, occupy as only small folks can. Heaven for the small one. With all the animals to care for it's not often these folks get away so it was a good feeling to house sit for a few days too.
And of course, the chickens lay their eggs in all manner of places which means alot of fun for small people to find them every day.
There was alot of quiet (he is a gentle one with animals, such a blessing) stalking of the friendlier chickens .....
And now, Home. Not having had the rest or break i had wanted, or needed. Finding my peace with that and happy to be here. Hullo, hello! It's good to be back at the GrowMama frontlines again. Watching my homeboy unfurl into his homespace...'i love my home mama' and landing by de-cluttering, filling a few GrowMama orders while my nights are spent visioning the year to come.
My mind is awhir with the new years plans hatching...watch out world.
