From little things, big things grow...What? There's 600 million reasons I could think of to explain the name of this blog. I'll mention them sometime.Who? Jen. 32. Female. Melbourne, Australia.When? Here, since 03.03.09. Online in general, since '97. Online ramblings, since 24.05.99 in various incarnations.Where else?Grow It, Eat It - where I put most of the stuff about my gardening, cooking and attempts at reaching out at a dream of self-sufficiency.
Made some down time last night - sat on the couch with the husband, held hands (instead of sitting at opposite ends of the couch), got off the internet, drank chai, ate chocolate fudge (was meant to be a brownie but I overlooked it), and watched this week’s episode of Offspring.
It was good.
Feeling so flat. It kicked in last night, but I’m not sure what’s triggered it - could just be a general lack of sleep, which makes everything seem so much worse than it is. Usually once I can pinpoint the reason for my down mood, it’s easy to get out of the hole, but before that, a lot of other stuff stacks on top and gets in the way. Meh.
The picture of the three Australian kids (I’m guessing all under age 10) that were killed in the MH17 plane is headlining one of Melbourne’s major newspapers today, I’m surrounded by their smiling faces on this morning’s train and it’s breaking my heart.
