Finding that winter sunshine, again

We've had such a great winter really, lots of rain, but when it's not raining we've been having these lovely sunny days, and we've been making the most of all that lovely winter sunshine and getting out into the fresh air.
I have two sets of almost identical photos here, taken about a week apart. All busy with our own little tasks, happily busy, soaking in the sun. I love times like this, and I'm so glad I captured these little bits of loveliness. It's good to look at these photos when we're having a crazy busy day and the kids are all grumpy :)
(Notice the knitting had not progressed much, but I'm happy to say now that it is almost finished, so she might get to wear it this winter afterall!).

Love all of this. Especially the use of power tools and Isla's outfit in the last photo.

I understand what you are writing about when you say your soaking up the sun and loving times like these... it seems there are small moments like these that everything aligns and feels right.

I LOVE seeing your kids work with tools. We don't have too many tools as long-term renters, but the value of working with tools at such a young age is just so important. So much learning! Thanks again for the gentle reminder your photos convey.

So funny. Blog hopping. You just commented on my blog and I thought about how much I love reading your blog. Its one that always makes me smile. Simple. Beautiful. Life. And then I realized I haven't updated my blogroll thingy since I got started here in blog land. So, done. Just added your blog to my side bar. I hope you enjoy the molasses oats. I think you will. :)

I love that your kids are barefoot, and glad to find that mine aren't the only barefooted kids in Auckland in winter!
