Today the kids started back at school so I went to visit mum for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful Autumn day so I took her out into the courtyard to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. I noticed that the gardener had pulled out all the flowers that were dying. There was fresh dirt and space for new growth. When I got home I checked our own vegie patch which has been a bit neglected lately. To my surprise I found a couple of large zucchinis amongst the mass of nothingness. New growth always heartens me.
Yesterday we came home from camping hence why I’ve been quiet on the blogging and reading front. I will get back to it very soon. During our weekend away we tackled a particularly challenging walk that I’ll be writing about soon. It was strenuous, probably one of the steepest climbs I’ve done for a while and the photo below shows us at the end of the day around the camp fire.
We were exhausted hence the shoes were off as we relaxed and warmed our weary feet.
And the next morning the grate turned the fire into our breakfast cooktop. Hubbs cooked up a hearty start to the day with bacon and eggs and an assortment of side dishes.
Sometimes all we need in life are the basics which is why I love camping and getting back to nature so much. Warmth, food and drink and good company.
This is part of the Mundane Monday Challenge #54 a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful week ahead. Amidst all the mundane and busy routines of life I hope you get a chance to put your feet up and rest.
