As usual our weekend got started on Friday with some Summer Solstice fun. There was jam making in the morning, a little gardening and lunch on the back deck, then a little family hike with butterfly net in hand. We chased butterflies, picked wild strawberries, red clover and wood sorrel, searched for monarch eggs and enjoyed a few moments just being still on a hill. Dinner on the back deck, a fire and enjoying the solstice sunset finished our day.
Justin and Reece had a father son day on Saturday, while I headed to Peterborough to spend the day with our community. We had a day of community mapping, working together to determine our strengths as a community, our areas for growth and development and as always, deepening our connection to each other. It was an inspiring day which left me feeling so very grateful to be a part of this wonderful community. Back at home, I shared my day with Justin while we made another batch of jam and enjoyed a quiet night at home.
Sunday found us lazing around and enjoying a very slow morning of playing, making food for a potluck, heading out for a family walk and checking in on the garden. After lunch it was off to my 8 Gifts from Nature course followed by a community potluck.
A weekend filled with wonderful things, leaving me filled with gratitude and feeling so very blessed.
How was your weekend?
