I never feel like blogging brave new ideas or experiments on the weekend. In fact, I like to get away from my computer if I can. What I feel like doing today is sharing things I’m grateful for, a la Three Beautiful Things.
- Snoozing on a bouldering mat, deep in Tallaganda National Park. I can feel the breeze, hear the birds and the insects, and the boys in the backround, gleefully tackling a new bouldering problem. It’s so much cooler away from the city.
- A calmbirth meditation CD and the worlds most uncomfortable couch. The secret is that it is only uncomfortable if you sit on it. If you lie down with a pillow and blanket it hugs your whole body, and I drift off to peaceful murmurs about a joyful birth.
- It’s 5.30 in the morning but the baby is restless and I have to get up. I can hear no traffic noise, only the loudest cacophony of birdcalls. A cool breeze pushes into the still of the house, and I’m glad I’m awake to notice it.
