    1. Mine too, although I feel like I haven't read anything except trashy novels since the 1 year old was born!

    1. So good to meet a fellow gardener. Not many people understand when I say I am off to mulch the garden with a big smile on my face.

  3. Love these! The grass pic makes me want to run outside right now... but I guess I'll go make dinner instead. Also, I think I need to hear what a kookaburra sounds like now!

    1. A friend visiting Australia for the first time asked me what the mad monkey noises were. That's not a bad description of the kookaburra, but its lovely not ugly.

    1. I remember the days before children when reading and coffee was possible, it feels very long ago. Now I settle for cuddles and coffee which is different but good too.

  6. I love your list!! :) It's so nice to meet you!! :)

    p.s. when I lived in Sydney as a girl, we had a whole flock of kookaburras that lived on our street! it's such a magical sound!

    1. How nice to bump into somebody who knows Sydney. I sometimes feel quite far away from a lot of my readers and wonder if they think its all red dust and kangaroos in Sydney! It is a magical sound isn't it. When I hear them in the morning I know I am really home.

  7. Great list! I like birds too but no kookaburras here. We have laughing robins : )

    1. Seriously a laughing robin? or do they just look like they are laughing. If you like birds you would love the little rainbow lorikeets that we also have. They get some tame they will eat seed out of your hand and they are so pretty. Have a look here

      for a picture.

  8. great list, eva! a good cup of coffee in the morning is key… and i wish i had a little grassy area to walk around barefoot. living in an apartment building in an industrial area certainly has its downfalls! nice to meet you! :)

    1. Now you see an apartment in an industrial area sounds rather cool and loft like to me, always wanted to live in an inner city loft! But I do like the grass. Ofcourse if you have a park nearby you have grass to walk in that you don't need to mow.

  9. Oh - first morning coffee for SURE! There is something so special about that morning ritual, that my day is just not the same without it!

  10. That first morning coffee IS always the best!!! :) I can't get movin' without mine!

  11. Hi Eva! I'm late to comment, but I love the part about kookaburras laughing - something you can't get here in Chicago! About to have my first morning coffee - a must for me too. ;) So nice to meet you and do this link-up together.

  12. Hi Eva! Nice to meet you! I love to be barefoot too. Growing up in Miami, FL. We spend a lot of time in flip flops. I remember being a little girl and getting trouble for messing up my socks because I would run around with no shoes on lol. I still find pleasure in it today. Why do we need shoes again? haha
