Isla's Daybook

For of those slow and lazy sundays...

Outside my looks like a nice day. But...we didn't manage to get out of the house, yet. Probably later this afternoon. We slept in today because we had a late night last night.

I am thinking...I have been a bit blog-lazy durin the last week. But I have been busy otherwise, and as unschoolers we are always open for new ideas and inspirations and learning opportunities.
I was thinking about a great deal of things. Why I had a lot of struggles with the kids during the summer, why I was so tired and almost ill, and why and how I wanted to change things for the better. How I had neglected certain areas of my life and had lost sight of my former gentle way of parenting. Often enough I wasn't that gentle and felt rather frustrated and tired.
I also noticed that my children mirrored my inner self. They always do.
But fortunately there is always room for change, room for improvements, a new beginning. :-) As I change myself the outside world will change, too.

I am thankful for...the programme about the Duggar-family. I know many people find them weird and odd and can't relate to them. But even though I don't share their views on many things, I found great inspiration and motivation in the programme. The more I watched it the more I liked it and them. :-) (The programme is '17 kids and counting') It's interesting what kind of people are out there - I am thankful for the internet, youtube and blogs! :-D

From the kitchen...making a potato-vegetable-lentils-casserole right now. We are all hungry and waiting eagerly for it to be ready. ;-P

I am wearing...jeans, socks knitted by my mom and a woolen jumper

I am reading...'Watching the English' by Kate Fox - very funny and entertaining, and 'Awaken the Giant within' by Anthony Robbins.

I am playing (the MacCalmans) and kids at play.

One of my favorite things...watching old episodes of the 'Famous Five' with my kids. :-) I love travelling back on memory lane and remember my own childhood.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Month...
- getting back to my financial saving programme. Somehow lost track of it...and believe me it is well-noticable.
- trying to establish new customers.
- finishing my knitting/sewing projects
- preparing for Christmas enough to have an easy time in December ;-)
- tbc
