a day in the life of June

It must have been true love when I met my husband. (I just didn't know it at the time - because it was eight years later before we finally got together). I've always been a person who loves to be busy - you know, fill in the days with good stuff. And he was the first guy who had a busier life than I did.

When we lived in Papua New Guinea we spent a lot of time dreaming of what we would do when we returned to Australia. It really helped count down those really hard/homesick days. And it sure did give me so much to look forward to when we got home.

And here we are. Four years back in our homeland, and sometimes our life is so mad busy we hardly get a chance to talk on some days. In fact, life can be so caught up in the routine and maintenance, we can lose sight of the big picture. Today, we re-grouped. It was one of those days where our hubby and I envisaged what our dreams were and made some more steps to make them a reality.

Our usual weekly planning involves a diary swap: we get out our diaries and I fill in what days he's going to be away, and what he has in store for the week. I let him know of anything relevant to him and the kids, and if I'm going to be out for the week.

So, back to our big plans... this week we have phone calls to make, things to sell, and plans to confirm.

And it makes me all excited all over again.

Do you share your dreams with your partner/friends? Do they become a reality?

(Oh, and the photo above? It's an old one I took because I didn't take a photograph yesterday. Call me silly, but there were just too many people around to take a photo. And even sillier, but how is it I can post a photo of me on my public blog to potentially a few hundred people, but not actually pose for it in front of my husband and two children? Even I'm perplexed. And I know you were dying to see me in my gardening gear, complete with work boots! Anyway... hasn't the persimmon come a long way? Oh, and as part of my blogging time, I googled "What to do with persimmons". More about that later.)


  1. Sssooooooo ....... ????

    Kell xxxx

  2. I was wondering... Where's Kymmie?? Much like Where's Wally? Maybe you could wear a red & white striped shirt and beanie in your next photo... for me?? ;o)
    It always nice to discuss plans/dreams/hopes for the future with hubby and friends. I do it often.
    Sounds like you've got some exciting things brewing. Good luck with it all xo

  3. Love it! The plans (whatever they may be), the photo...everything.

  4. It is hard to find time to connect about life dreams when life is such a whirlwind. Your plans sound exciting, can't wait until all is revealed.

  5. Boo hoo! You know it was ME that was dying to see you in your gardening gear!! Tis a beautiful tree though. And it sounds like you have some wonderful things ahead. Can't wait to hear more. xx

  6. I can feel the love between you and your husband. And it is so nice that it's not the usual mush and cheesy stuff but that which involves dreaming and planning and getting really immersed in each other's lives. Re the picture, it was disconcerting to not see you in your lovely garden. Hahaha.

  7. I love times for regrouping and prioritising. Everything becomes so clear again.

    You'll have to get out the gardening gear again to show us! ;)


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
