Consumed and loving it.


I just live these red and white spotted mushrooms. There are hundreds of them around here this autumn. It must be the climate. It's cold and rainy. I found these under the pine trees at the place where I go to the indoor heated pool sauna and spa. (yep, its tough ...)



Our autumn table. Little messyfish loves it. It chock full of seed pods, seasonal crafts and found objects from our walks.



Made some Pear, Ginger and lemon jam. It's divine....



Little messyfish keeps a vase with flowers on his "work" desk. However he has surpassed himself this time. He loooooves yellow. Especially yellow flowers. He got his scissors and spent a good 40mins cutting them, choosing vases, arranging them, filling them with water, and then lining them up. I am so amazed and impressed I had to blog it!



My blog used to be called "messyfish illustrations" HA! Then I had a baby, then I found out about attachment parenting, co sleeping, extended breastfeeding, non violent communication, waldorf, montessori and eventually radical unschooling. Wow what a journey. I love my life so much I cry at it's beauty and gifts. I am blessed. I record it with photoes and words in this blog now. My creative energy is going into being a mum who can create a fun and happy and free life for my child. It's the most creative I've ever been. I have no resentments. I choose to do this. It makes me happy. There is a solution to everything that needs a solution if I am thinking creatively. Sometimes it's a drawing by me. Sometimes it's building Lego with my beautiful boy. Mostly it's about being open, honest and willing.
