I am so late this month but here it is! This is my account of what I achieved (or not) for December.
Nourish - I didn't make much sourdough this month. I was a bit overwhelmed by Christmas.
Grow - Kale. That's about it. A couple of beetroots and a few onions. The strawberries were terrible despite my re-organising the bed and then something ate the lot when we took a four day holiday. The garden is not well and I am spending this month working on all sorts of different ideas. We are re-digging some of our garden beds and resting them. We're putting together a wicking bed and I hope this coming December I will have a more productive garden. I intend to just keep at it until I get it right.

Green - I made soap for Chrissy presents and (this is UN-green) I've been wearing my old perfumes. I decided that it was silly to let them go off while I was using essential oils instead. The oils will keep indefinitely so I'll finish the old perfume first. I have a story about wearing it though. We haven't used chemicals around the house for so long that we are becoming very sensitive to smell. Hubby sat with me after work one night complaining that he could smell a weird smoke smell. He went on for about fifteen minutes about how it smelt and finally said, "I know! It smells like a mosquito coil." That's when the penny dropped for me and I asked if it was my perfume. Yup! It was. He is still living it down. It was a very good perfume but when you are unused to artificial fragrances you smell them very differently.
Enhance - Nope. Not much happening here. Oh well, I have heaps of stuff coming up this year for this category.
Enjoy - Surely this will be the same for all of us but I really enjoyed Christmas. I love the day itself though the preparation gets me stressed. How lovely to put a day aside to catch up with the people we love. It was wonderful! And we had a ball on a camping trip with the kids and my parents came too. We camped by the Murray and relaxed.
