Summer is about being outside. Busy or still, it’s about feeling the warmth on your skin.
I tend to think of Summer and Winter as still months, while Autumn and Spring are busy.
Spring is sowing and organising, it’s all about tidying up inside and throwing all of the windows open. Autumn is about gathering the bounty, but the months before and after are about enjoying the peace.
We are in Summer now; we are feeling the benefits of the work in Spring. We are clear and clean inside. We are already tidied away and at peace in the house. The clutter has been cleared-the very best a hoarder can clear away things.
Right now I feel I need the peace and the quiet and the flowers in the garden. Right now I need to sit, bare foot staring out at the bumble bees. I need the still, still summer. The long days, the bright mornings.
Things are changing-the seasons as well as in our home. We’re making decisions and facing tough choices so we are welcoming all that can bring calm.
I hope you are surrounded by the ones you love and having a much more peaceful existence in your own homes.
