I am surprised to think back over April and realise how much I have done. I felt as though I hadn't done much lately.
Nourish - I really enjoyed the colours in food over the last month. The summer crops are much more colourful than the winter ones.
Prepare - I'm pleased to say that I've actually done something in this category. I made tomato sauce with some tomatoes from a local-ish tomato grower and..... for the first time I dehydrated some fruit with a dehydrator I was given. I dehydrated tomatoes, banana, orange, mandarin and watermelon. It was such fun trying out all the different results!

|Some are a bit wonky because the soap reached trace more quickly than I expected|

Enjoy - I suppose I'm cheating if I just say 'all of the above' but it's true. If I have to be specific, I enjoyed visiting my two older girls, meeting my friend's new baby and I have really enjoyed the change in the weather. I feel as though I have been given my life and energy back. I found it impossible to achieve anything over our hot summer and found it depressing. Yay for Autumn!!!
