Sitting in the sheep shed is something I don't usually do. Normally I am hurrying off to complete the next task.
I've been hurrying a great deal too much lately. The little Echidna made me realise that if you don't take the time to slow down and stop, you'll likely miss out on the tiny details of life that make it so enjoyable.
The house may be messy and in need of a good scrubbing, the windows may still need cleaning from this summer's bug season, my potting area might be a disaster zone complete with dead seedlings, but reality is there are only so many hours in a day, and each day should be spent with some slow, quiet time where we can just pause and absorb the world around us.
Because if we don't, we might just miss out on a spiky little visitor like this one.
And what would be the point in living in such a beautiful place as this if we don't take the time to enjoy the extraordinary things surrounding us?
Have a lovely Sunday
