After almost two weeks at the Baltic Sea, the little one and I went to my parent’s place and spent some wonderfully relaxing days at our very own summer resort. Our normal rhythm each day: waking up, then reading books (the little one in her grandmother’s bed, and myself in my own bed…blessful moments with a chance to actually finish two or three books!). Then breakfast, followed by various activities such as trampolining, picking berries (strawberries, blueberries, black currants, white currants, cherries…), garden work, watering flowers, discovering the old barn, reading books, trampolining, water splashing, trampolining, relaxing on the sun bed, watching the bumblebee nest….After lunch a lunch nap for all of us (and more time to read), then trampolining, eating ice-cream, drinking juice, relaxing, more discovering of the old barn, swinging, water splashing, collecting snails, occasional drawing, playing with dolls, trampolining…..and some occassional trips to the city, the forest or the zoo. And at the end, dinner and bed time (only after reading two or three bedtime stories), finally falling asleep to the sound of birds and running water from the dwell. Heaven. And just the right rhythm for hot summer days.
While the trampolining was exclusively done by the little one, I tried to be a bit creative in the garden as all those flowers were just too tempting. You just need some wire, flowering lady’s mantle and four or five additional blossoms:
