The deck had a large table, chairs, and BBQ which we loved to use, but the area was crying out for some colour and leafy plants.
So over a couple of weekends we made some trips to hardware stores and nurseries searching for plants and a stand.
The girls loved helping us pick out plants with lovely flowers, and interesting foliage. We also picked up some strawberry plants and an olive tree which they helped plant. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we get some fruit from them.
Its been so nice sitting outside with the sunshine on my back either eating lunch or reading a magazine.
Most of our household is sick with hand foot & mouth at the moment, so yesterday I treated myself to an hour (might have been more, the time got away from me!) of drawing all the things that are making me feel happy. I think it was something I needed and will be doing more of. I am thankful that Hubby has taken a couple days of work to help me out, as I've been feeling sore and not 100% with mouth ulcers!
|My little drawing of what is making me happy|
Lately I have been trying to focus more on things that make me happy rather than stuff that is out of my control. I thought of having a weekly post, with maybe a sketch or drawing to go with it. If you like this idea, I'd love for you to join me each week. Maybe we could share the hashtag #whatismakingmehappy
What has been making you feel happy?
