Isla's Daybook

For today...a beautiful warm autumn day

Outside my is raining now. It is also dark as it is late in the evening.

I am is time for a new Daybook-post. :-P Once a month, I promised. But I almost forgot.
I am also thinking about how life always seems to bring the things I need in order to grow as a person, to gain valuable experience and to broaden my horizon. Yes, sometimes situations seem hard and difficult at first. I struggle, I pity myself, I want to give up. But somehow when I change my perspective and try to learn something even from the bad situations I can move forwards. Sometimes in a great leap. Sometimes slowly but surely. That gives me faith. I feel that life is challenging me. And if we accept the challenges instead of fighting against them we can truly grow and succeed.

I am thankful for...the strength of my oldest daughter, the thoughtfulness of my son and the humour and wit of my little one!

From the kitchen...what shall I say...? There's a washing-up pile waiting for me, pears that want to be turned into compote, and apple's that will soon be puree. :-) My dehydrater is humming away and I am looking forward to those dried pear and apple pieces!

I am wearing...cordoroy trousers and an orange long-sleeve shirt.

I am reading...The Three Investigators and The Creative Family by Amanda Blake Soule. Very nice book! I recommend everyone to read it.

I am hearing...the rain, and Lisa watching 'All creatures great and small'. It has become our nightly ritual to watch at least on episode whilst drinking a mug of tea (and me knitting).

One of my favorite things...Walnut-Marzipan-loaf. Soooo yummy!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Month...
well, maybe I shouldn't be too ambitious. Most of last month's plans didn't work out.
I still don't have a bike and my car got sold...I hardly wrote and I didn't finish my BabyBorn-knitting. At least I practiced some new songs and got new strings for my fiddle. :-)
This month I'll keep it simple. My plan is to go day by day, enjoy my children, be creative and get done what I can get done.

A picture I'd like to share with you...
