I had a quiet and fairly normal weekend. It was quite uneventful except for the fact that it was uneventful. That actually made it an event because I haven't had a quiet weekend for months on end!
It made me realise how nice my life has become. I just did the ordinary mundane stuff that is our life. The weekend began with a catch-up with friends from the school we used to go to. It was lovely to see them again. Then on Saturday we went to our swap/community market in the morning. Here we caught up with many friends and met some new people. We had a gentle afternoon which involved some easy, slow gardening.
Sunday morning was a delivery of organic chook feed (blogger is playing up today. I can't highlight or link. The feed is from Hollyburton farm) which is grown in Victoria. A group of us ordered together to make the delivery a shared cost. The feed looks good. Do you know what I like about it the best? It smells good! And also says on the label no restricted animal materials. I said to Hubby, " We could eat this, you know!" Got to love giving your animals food that is healthy. Fancy I've been feeding them stuff that isn't fit for human consumption!
The lady who delivered was the owner of the farm. While chatting, she asked my daughter which school she went to. I could feel my Belle brace herself to answer the dreaded question. (This question is asked SO often and the reply brings many negative face-pulling responses!) However, not this time! Belle was delighted to discover our chook feed lady was also homeschooling her son and has completed homeschooling her older children. It turned out to be a lovely visit (I could have chatted all day) and I hope to go and see them one day soon.
It was nice to have the time to realise that my life is gentle and feels meaningful. Our kind of 'normal' feels good.
Do you live a different kind of normal?
