Thank goodness for we are all most certainly ready for a break.
I don't beat myself up too much about the things I 'would have liked to' do as opposed to 'the thing I actually did' any more. Its not healthy. I did get to make Jam from Berries in our garden for the teachers and I added in something from the shops instead of something home baked.
The first picture is the prettier one and this is a wider view of the end of the bench.
It was crazy this morning with gifts, last day of School party supplies, things left over from yesterday.
So above you see the gifts behind them some extra jars of jam and maybe a shopping list. Further back are the berries I picked yesterday and the Apricots I collected yesterday a paint chip and my plant. A partially cleared table in the background. The rest of the bench that I wasn't photographing was a busy messy place.
I decided this will be a perfect gift wrapping station later today.
Still a few things to wind up to be ready for 'the day' but glad to have a few more things behind me too.
Remember to take a pause and see something beautiful in your chaos. Be kind to yourselves
Don't beat yourself up about the 'I would have liked to' statements. Its a busy time of the year but it doesn't have to be crazy too.
