“Then the singing enveloped me. It was furry and resonant, coming from everyone’s very heart. There was no sense of performance or judgment, only that the music was breath and food.”
~ Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith
It’s been a magical few days here at our little farm.
We had a relaxing and love-filled Christmas; a sunny day with ocean swims, followed by swims in the pool and lots of delicious food.
The good weather lasted another day and then rain came. Rather a lot of rain. In fact, it flooded us in, and we lost power for an afternoon and evening.
No matter, we read books, lit candles and went to sleep really early. After which we slept in really late! Oh, it was heavenly.
It’s still overcast this morning, with little scudding showers, although the creek over the causeway is back down again. All of the frogs have gone totally crazy with this constant rain, and the sudden drop in temperature. We have more green tree frogs than I’ve ever seen. They sing constantly, and the air is alive with their croaking. What’s more, they’ve spawned in every bucket, water trough, flooded pot-plant and even the swimming pool.
It’s been a wonderful break – I disconnected from the internet, my phone, blog and emails for four glorious days. All I’ve done is rest, nap and sleep. (Yes – they are different activities!) Just what the doctor ordered!
Stay tuned – over the next few days I’ll have some planning exercises and meditations to get your ready for an awesome 2015.
Are you ready for your best year yet? I know I surely am!
Lots of love, Nicole xx

Much love to you & yours! Glad you had a wonderful, relaxing holiday season! & looking forward to the coming exercises and meditations!
Ohh envious of all your beautiful tree frogs. We used to see them around our previous house as it was in a semi rural location. I love the smiley faces. It’s been perfect weather for napping and resting. Lovely to hear you have had a good break xxx
