winter days. . .





listening
to rain heavy and steady for almost a week now

wearing
gum boots and raincoats and mittens and beanies

catching up
with my little brother visiting from canada

making
simple fingerless mittens for the daddy-o and me

picking
mandarins and oranges and pomegranates too

eating
delicious mamabaked meals from the freezer

marking
the winter solstice with a lantern walk

appreciating
my mum and how much she does for me

buying
locally made uggies to keep tiny toes warm

realising
it really does take a village

discussing
tiles and taps and tanks and tradies

reconnecting
with my beloved over fine food and wine

cheering
as my baby boy takes his first wobbly steps

: :

...and thank you all for your concern.
the house on the hill stood strong
in the wild and windy weather.
