As I sit here with my cup of Joe. mm delicious plunger coffee the smell the taste so good.
Anyway its 6.30am I’m up in a silent house bar the clock ticking very loudly behind me and the tap tap of the keyboard now. I wouldn’t usually start my computer and come on here this early for sure. But something about no one else being up yet and the urge to write.
I got up earlier with my husband but he’s gone off to work awhile ago. So its just me awake and its bliss because those little humans are relentless.
I have tried in the past to get up early to bet them to it so to speak but they always end up walking out and then I have to go through he motions of morning cuddles, breakfast and we start our day. I mean one day they will leave me in peace and It’ll be bitter sweet so I revel in it for now anyway. Just like the endless times I have to go down to their room at bedtime to hug them again and reassure them of something. One of them gets very worried about all the things and I mean all the random things when they get really tired. Those nights are luckily few and far between but we had one this week and it was exhausting and frustrating for me.
The first weekend in March and it feels like this year has been going so fast but this week has really extended in time. I wrote an instagram post on March 1st about what march smells like and it seems like a lifetime since I wrote it as my week was filled with reading, assessing, sharing so much of what is going on in the world and NZ right now. Are you feeling the weight of it all? The confusion. We need to trust in the higher that this will all pan out in our favour, in humanities favour. For our freedoms, human rights and our birthright to thrive on this earth.
Today I need to do another declutter in my room. My drawers are becoming so stuffed with clothes again. Im not sure how but I think I might have pulled out some thick winter clothes on cooler days over the last month and now things aren’t fitting like they were. ( I did a major house and room declutter earlier this year). Need to release more out into the secondhand realm. I also want to get into a book, like sit and read for a good amount of time. My attention span is getting worse and worse. I find it hard to really focus and hook into a book at the mo. Maybe its the books or maybe its me.
Yesterday we chilled at home – made homemade pizzas, washing because the weather was awesome, woodwork, dog walk, cooking, cleaning, reading, lego, sprinkler and…
Pokemon Go – kids have just got into it after one became interested in the books, then we watched some series, then we watched the Pokemon movie. We looked up to see what Pikachu evolves into ( Raichu), then we saw some cards and then some other stats of Pokemon online. I mentioned ‘oh yeah there’s an app you can collect Pokemon’. So now we collect virtual Pokemon, they are well into it. Side note I have a wee plastic pikachu from like 98-99? that when you touch the metal tabs on the feet at the same time it says “Pika Pika Pikachu.”
Anyway there’s some musings to start my day.
Have a beautiful day
