ups and downs.

Standard

 

you know that feeling

when you fall down

on the trampoline

and keep trying to get up

but everyone keeps jumping

and you keep bouncing

and then all of you

start belly-laughing

and keep belly-laughing

and cannot stop?

 

“life has its ups and downs, but you can only look forward.”

building a giant sleep nest

no one is at all tired yet

the perfect time to bake brownies

and eat them as a late night snack

with some ice cream on top

their parents will never know.

surprises.

Standard

I spent some time this morning 

creating the beginnings of a fairy village

in the front garden

of a friend’s little girl

who liked to come and visit my garden

when she got home

she discovered the surprise

saw the fairies had moved in

right in her very own front yard

and gave it her full endorsement

 

“the whole point of life was you couldn’t ever be sure what would happen next.

sometimes what happened was good, sometimes not,

but there were always surprises.”
