In the moment

I love that moment when you can feel the change in the season coming. The sunlight streams in through the windows but the air is gentle and crisp, foretelling the coming autumn. Although many people love nothing more than a hot summer's day, it's not the time of year i enjoy the most. The generations of Scottish blood and the position of New Zealand under the hole in the ozone layer means the heat of the sun is a formidable foe.

But that crisp bite in the air fills me with glee. Autumn is coming! As i sit here with my knitting, which is finally taking shape, watching an episode of Larkrise to Candleford  ( thankyou Soulemama for introducing me!) i feel calm and peace wash over me. A change of season, time moving forward to new pleasures.

Time to head outside with the little one and get a few minutes of sun before this season passes me by.

Blessings to you and your family.


  1. yep I feel it too and just like you I love this time of year. In fact the QLD heat is one of the reasons hubby and I are moving back to NZ in the next year or so. We have a summer here that is so hot you cannot comfortably be outside between 9 and 4 for 3 months of the year.

    1. Oh goodness, i have very little to complain about compared to you! The temperatures over there seem crazy this year! I can't say it gets all that hot here in NZ but i'm just not one for the heat.
