With sick lingering here for longer than I would have thought {much longer than I'm happy about}, there's been a whole lot of home time and pretty much no script to our days.

I wake up and wonder what the day will bring, and I throw up a couple of options out and see what the little misses like best.

Sometimes we do a whole lot of nothing. Lying on the ground reading books, and lying on the ground with them lying on me.

We bake our bread together. I plan nutritious immune-boosing meals for our days, and my girls make soup {to make us all feel better} in their play kitchen.

But often we make our way to the beach. Miss three requests visits to the water, almost as much as my heart does.

When it rains we watch the waves from the car. And when it's windy, we make our way to the lookout. If it's sunny, we'll run on the sand or watch the sun dancing on the water from afar.

On Wednesdays we keep heading to the market, and wander rugged up down the street.
We buy daffodils and jonquils, and I sip hot chocolate while the girls play at the park.

And every night {after reading their two favourite books} my angels fall asleep in my arms.

And then I find myself getting out of bed to finish work commitments, but not getting to write from {and for} my heart.

We haven't seen much of the people we love to see this past month, we haven't had the out-and-about rushed that comes with normal weeks and I haven't been afforded the time to hit the publish button when I do write.

But always before I fall asleep I notice how our unscripted days of late are filled with heart moments.

And while at times I feel like I haven't been able to catch my breath, I think in a way it's what I needed.

Because in the not-knowing and the lack of planning, I've been propelled to move further out of my comfort zone, be even more selective with my time, to trust and move further in the direction of my heart.

So many things have been thrown up in the air this month, but it's starting to feel like that only happened so things could land the right way up.


How have your days been of late? Do you stop to notice all the heart moments collected throughout your week?


  1. It is lovely to hear what you have been doing with your darling daughters! And you know this time is so fleeting, before you know it they will be in school, well on their way to becoming beautiful women just like their Mother. You are laying such good grounding for them to be fulfilled as you are. xoxox

  2. You're making the best of the sick days...doing things you love. To me it sounds calm and joyous and lovely.

  3. Your sick days sound lovely :) We have been trying to notice and collect those moments all summer long. Trying to live in the moment, and going with the flow. It has been truly wonderful.

    Hope everyone is feeling much better soon.

  4. I hope everyone is feeling better Elisa. Your heart moments sound lovely ;) xx

  5. I hope the sickness takes it's leave soon x

    I've been stumbling around my unscripted days in a blur of unfinished jobs and mounting stress about it all!

  6. It's so hard when things aren't how they should be. You are right to just let it flow and not over think it too much. Just go with the flow and see where you end up. x


Thank you for your words and support. I'm so glad you stopped by xx
