Five things to be cheerful about this Monday

Five things to be cheerful about this Monday

1 // Sand between my toes

We went for a walk on the beach after work today instead of coming straight home. It seems a little ridiculous that we don’t do this every day! We often scurry home after our work days without taking advantage of this beautiful place we call home.

2 // A newly borrowed library book

A Doubter’s Almanac by Ethan Canin.

3 // Warm nights

So warm we are sleeping with the bedroom doors wide open and our limbs flung out of the sides of the bed seeking cool air.

4 //Shooting film

I loaded the Holga 120n up with film (I have a crazy amount of it hoarded up) and started using it again today. Some of my favourite photos have been made with that little plastic camera. I’m looking forward to making some more.

5 // An owl in our garden

New Zealand has only one native owl and we have a couple that live nearby. Hearing their calls in the evenings and mornings makes me all kinds of happy.
