There is so much making me happy today I don't know where to start. Perhaps I will start with this morning. We had a plan. We hit the road early. We stopped for coffee. We took the scenic route. We made our way round to every lions shed garage sale in the area. Margaret river, Cowaramup, Busselton... We found a few treasures. The mirrors, the wire teapot, some crab baskets and a few new fabrics. We ate yummy bacon and egg sandwiches.
This afternoon we came back to the sugar shack and moseyed across the road to the beach. The sun was shining and the beach was deserted so I followed Zavian's lead and stripped off my gear and enjoyed soaking up the vitamin D. I laid on my tummy as Zavian shovelled sand on my back. Occasionally stopping to rub the sand into my skin. I closed my eyes and pretended I was at the day spa.
After we washed all of the sand from our hair and bodies we laid down for an afternoon nap on the daybed, where my person is still sleeping now. In this moment I know I have so much to be grateful for. Sometimes I feel like the luckiest lady in the world...
The sugar shack is taking shape. I love the way it feels here and I am so happy with what we have managed to achieve with practically no furniture. Of course I have plans, but I am content to let things come together over time. For now I just want to throw open the windows and fill this cottage with the scent of vanilla, coconut and sunscreen.
