Five on Friday Blessings

Happy Friday Guys and Gals!

Life has been super busy at the moment so this week will be a brief one, here's some of the little things that I have not taken for granted recently:

Praying Mantis
Praying Mantis
This little visitor stopped by to say hello and I managed to get a snap of him perched on the mother-in-law's shoulder! We're blessed to have predators like this living on our land, a great natural pest controller and sign of a healthy eco system.

People & Permaculture 
People and Permaculture - A Brilliant Book
I was gifted a copy of People and Permaculture recently by a good friend that thought it would help me, she was totally right! The book is fantastic and working through the activities in the book has been an amazing experience so far, I look forward to finishing it soon.

Men & Motors
Wild and Free
I've had a bit more time out on the motorcycle recently doing "club things" which has done me the world of good, it is my favourite form of therapy as you can probably tell!

Play Time
The Pirates Life Is The Life For Me!
Spending time with my family, learning to be more present and living in the moment more has been the best! Here is a snap of us being pirates yesterday morning just because we could :) Apologies for the quality, the photo was taken in low light.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, Thanks for joining us once again for Five on Friday
