I took up the womankind nature challenge last week, in the hope that my writing would be accepted for publication in their next edition. So, I did my three days of spending time in nature, observing and writing my diary of how what I experienced. My bestie offered to proof read it for me and made some great suggestions. I took her up on all of them and it looked beautifully polished. Logged on this morning to submit my application and was reading the terms of the challenge.
Once you have completed your five days, send your response to us at award ‘@’ womankindmag.com
The most suitable responses will be published in the next issue of Womankind magazine.
Starts: Wednesday, 24 August 2016
Ends: Sunday, 28 August 2016.
Yes read this again, and oh what a moron, it says FIVE days. THANK GOD I re-read this before my keen little self, sent off my THREE days of writing. Also very lucky that we are an outdoorsy family and could easily, write about time spent in nature over the weekend. Great start to Monday.
This little hiccup lead to a really great day. There was an impromptu lunch thrown in with my bestie, where we sat crossed legged on her lawn, and ate salad wraps with red wine, and chatted in the way that we do. I spent time in the backyard with the family this afternoon, my two little cricket fanatics start training on Wednesday, so thought they would get a head start and practice today as well. We planted a mandarin tree, while sipping red wine and collecting eggs from my crazy chickens. While standing under the mulberry tree, we debated the ripeness of the berries and laughed our heads off at my husband’s extremely poor attempt at lighting a bon fire. (I am the arsonist in this family).
End of day 11
Went for a drive to Maccas in our pj’s and splurged on $2, choc top cones after dinner.
Debating if we should replace our hot water system or buy rain water tanks.
