BITS + PIECES: Stills- a weekly collection {home happenings}

There has been a lot of creating at home. Our home lessons for Intentional learning have focused on indoor activities, nature scenes and stories of animals and sea adventures with pirates. Leading to a fun photo session with our pirates and my tribe posing in the pirate fox pants {they are for sale here}. 
Miss 4 made cookies in the afternoons while bread rose ready for baking. Cottons were organised in colours of the rainbow as l finished Sunday Pinnies for the online shop {you can see them all here}. She took to my phone to take photos of home life, you can see her bowl of cottons, the floor and coffee table and the candle in this week's Stills. It's a busy but wonderfully creative time. 
The garden is lush and green and we are starting to harvest young beans, lettuce, herbs and radishes for meals {you can read the Garden series here}. 
But most of all l have been trying to practise gratitude for the little moments where my kids are happy and mothering isn't so hard, having one of my best friends fighting cancer reminds me to be mindful in my life, loving fully, being grateful, being present in the here and now and taking the time to slow down when the opportunity arises and enjoy simple pleasures. I went shopping, shared a babychino/coffee with Little fox, read lots of books this week to the tribe, had crafternoons and made sure that there were lots of laughter. It's important that those things happen no matter how busy life gets.

I'm joining Em for Stills {late l know} and you can read all about the past Poppyfoxathome Stills here, there has been a few. Follow me over at bloglovin here and let me know what is happening in your world, I'd love to hear from you {yes really!!}.
