Living Near the Water

Harbour Bridge

While hanging out in the Kirribilli area yesterday, I couldn't help but admire the great houses by the waterfront. No pictures because I didn't want to be intrusive. My husband said he'd love to live beside the sea; I think that would be nice, though I always loved the idea of a lakefront house instead of a coastal one.

We Started Our Balcony Garden

Ok, we just have six herbs, one type of flower, and three hanging planters, but we (especially the little boy) enjoyed it so much, we might add a few more over the next few months!

Herbs:
Basil
Rosemary
Thyme
Chives
Parsley
Coriander

Non-Herb
Marigold flowers

Caring for growing things is fun for the little guy, and I hope this augments his now evident love of nature and the outdoors. One of the first things he asked to do before breakfast this morning was, "Water plants?" , with a huge grin on his face. And so we did!

The Mitfords: Letters Between Six Sisters


Amusing. Proto-Kardashians in early 1900's Britain with more than any family's share of political extremes. (Though Kanye is running for US president, right? Is Kanye 2020 still a thing?)

I couldn't help but chuckle at the familiar sisters dynamic though. I can thoroughly relate to the love/craziness :)
