Simple Pleasures Post that I received some questions about.
Stephen and our older boys made this for our use quite a few years ago. The cross arms are made from Macrocarpa pine and the posts are white gum tree posts from our property.
Obviously it can carry a lot of washing. /but believe it or not we do run out of space sometimes.....our major problem is keeping up with the amount of pegs we need.
Even so the time just seemed to fly by so quickly and it was time to drive him back to the airport.
Really we did nothing special on the weekend with Kynan, we just enjoyed the feeling of completeness within our family with him home.
Of course this usually involves dancing and singing together as we do this chore and our older children can remember this from when they were little.
Some of our children enjoy this more than others at times and of course if you need a broom to sweep with you can play the guitar as well.
I really love this bush/tree. It grows to such wonderful heights and I have seen it trimmed into a hedge. In summer it has the most glorious white blossoms and now in Autumn it has red berries on the branches.
So our weekend came to an end and we had a wonderful family time, but certainly those plans I indicated I was going to do for Lent this year .......well I am still doing those tonight. In fact we may even start Lent this year with out them written out properly. I do have a rough idea but just need to focus on making the charts and plans still.
We did make our Mardi Gras Masks, using my models from Friday, today and this was a long process that took longer than I thought.
Expect a post on this tomorrow too. Until then goodnight.....
