CAPES, MARSHMALLOWS, WATERFALLS... EACH MOMENT'S A GIFT

This is the only moment of your life.
There is no past or future moment, 
only this one continuing moment...
Be here in this moment (author unknown)

Each moment's a gift...

  
Experience moments as a child does...


Ten days ago, J.B. and I spent a fabulous weekend of moments with our two wonderful sons and their beautiful families - a Winter Gathering - this time in a 90 year old farmhouse adjacent to Mapleton National Park in the hinterland north of Brisbane. (Every year we gather - somewhere, it changes every time because we all live hundreds of kilometres apart - to be together, to share the gifts of life, nature and love).

Mapleton Falls


Never forget how to fly...

My beautiful grandchildren, Edana and her gorgeous brother Ewan. 



 Kondalilla Falls - (Kondalilla is an Aboriginal word for rushing water) - pools
at the top, pools at the bottom of the 80 metre falls. 

Never forget how to dress for yourself...it's always 
the right outfit...

My fabulous grandson, Lochlan, on an adventure
in the forest with Ewan.

The Capes...
I made the boys their superhero capes nearly
three years ago and they wear them wherever and whenever. They bring 
smiles to the faces of strangers who see their fun and joy... 
A Princess Anna cape for Paige, a Princess Elsa one for Edana...
 Then, just when I thought the cape factory had closed, I 
received a special request from Paige for her birthday this year for a Superman cape so that she could fly with Lochlan (but it had to be blue).
Fire pit comfort...pre loved pink Pashmina (a great find for $4), my hand dyed 
head wrap which I've had for decades, Indian turquoise and silver earrings, Indian wool wrap over J.B.'s track pants and well walked Merrells...

 
 
Toasting marshmallows...
 Burning marshmallows...
Getting them just right 
in the middle...





Ewan...
Marshmallow cooling
with J.B. and the 
dinosaurs.

Paige, my youngest
beautiful grandchild...
which stick shall I do
first...




Each moment's
a delicious gift...



Love, it's contagious...
