It’s transition time for me again as my Beloved and I are coming to the end of our idyllic house sit in the bush, knowing that we will be gone soon sharpens my appreciation of the beauty we are surrounded by here. I will miss the wallabies and the birds and the horses, although I won’t miss having to feed them every morning at 8am! Once again I have another piece of the puzzle that is making up the picture of where I will eventually settle, being in the bush seems like an essential part of that.
As I sit here writing the wind is howling outside and winter has finally closed her cold fist over the landscape, moving back into town into a brick house might not be such a bad idea after all! I spoke in my last post about the immediacy of nature that we experience here in Australia, the wind is practically yelling and it is a little bit unsettling to say the least. I have learned to like winter but at this moment I’m longing for that summer warmth to return, makes me a typical human being, always wanting what we don’t have.
So it’s time to focus on what’s good about cold weather, sitting in front of a roaring fire and snuggling with my Beloved would probably head my list.Two hot water bottles in bed also used to be a winter essential but now I have a human hot water bottle, nothing like cuddling up with a fiery Leo to raise the temperature! Hearty soups with yummy gluten-free toast dripping with organic butter, woolen hats and gloves, and of course sexy long boots make the season much more fun. And finally simply surrendering to the fact that its bloody cold and there ain’t a damn thing I can do about it!
