Linky Loves...

Hello and WELCOME to another week of...

1. I am super excited about the new December Daily Kit by Ali Edwards! I watched the unboxing video and OH MY GOSH -- I love everything that's in it. Can't wait to create with it!

2. I don't mean to be drab but depression is real and it does not discriminate on who it attacks. I really connected with this article and wanted to share it here.

3. How often do we sanitise our stories in order to spare the perceived discomfort or disinterest in the whole truth? THIS POST by Sarah Bessey had me captured and challenged the whole way through! I just had to share it here too.

4. Sometimes we have cooked rice left-over and I came across THIS POST that gives some recipes for left over rice. I'm loving the look of that cacao-maple rice pudding!

5. I adore THIS LAYOUT that Kim Archer shared on the Jot blog. I just love her style!!

What Linky Loves can you share with us this week?

A farewell coffee date. Take some time to breath, sip a warm drink, and share with your new blogging buddies. How did the Blogtember challenge go for you? Any surprises? What was your favourite prompt, or what would you like to see included next time?

I was browsing my photos and came across a layout I'd photographed that I haven't actually shared anywhere yet.
Thought it would fit in well with today.
So, since my beverage of choice is coffee it's only fitting I document it ;-)
now you know how I have my coffee ;-) hehe

So this is the end of the Blogtember Challenge.
And it's been great - it has been a slight challenge at times, I did miss a few days there in a busy part of the month - I've always loved a set blogging schedule with prompts which is why I always jump at the chance to go along with a blog challenge.
Now I just have to keep up the routine.

I love blogging.
I've always wanted to write.
This outlet has been great for me. 
I've loved where this little part of the online world has brought me so far, and look forward to wherever it will take me.

I hope you will continue to drop on by with your cuppa in hand and share the journey together.
And make life One Big Sunshine Spritzer!

Write your own list of 10 blog topics to inspire us for next month.

It has been on my list to do some forward planning into October for some blog posts so this prompt is great to get me going on that.
Should hopefully keep me accountable to it too ;-)

So thinking cap on...

1. Sweet Treats - what are your faves?
2. What is currently on your bedside table?
3. Songs that really get you grooving.
4. Travel destinations. Places you've been or that you want to go.
5. What would be the greatest surprise you could get?
6. Your favourite Instagram accounts.
7. Talk about 3 of your favourite book characters.
8. What are you wearing today? Do a fashion post.
9. If today could be described in one word, what would that word be? Explain why.
10. Your favourite store to visit/shop at?

Let's see where that takes me in October.
Feel free to join me if you like :-)

A day in the life. 

Well, a day in my life is usually about kids, hungry kids, housework, hungry kids, laughs, breaking up fights, hugs, i love you's, family, entertaining kids, cleaning kids, hungry kids, hungry husband, cooking, snuggles, and if I'm lucky some crafting and some TV time.

In a nutshell anyway ;-)
Unless, it's a town day. Or I've got meetings. Or I've gotta work in the shop. Or there's a school thing happening for the kids.
Then the day looks a little different.

But today...
Today was the start of school holidays for two weeks AND it was a public holiday here.
So the kids didn't have to go to school AND the hubby didn't have to go to work.
So I'll give a snippet of what today was like for us.

It was a beautiful day today.
So we made the most of it and got outside.
I had lots of laundry to catch up with so while I was hanging out clothes and such the kids played in the backyard chasing the dog, totem tennis, and in the sandpit.
Later on in the day, we all went for a bike ride around town. Together.

In the evening, after baths and while we were eating tea, Finding Nemo was the movie selection for the evening. The kids love to watch a movie before bed.

And most nights, I end up here. On the couch. With my lappy, cuppa tea (and tonight some chocolate snuck in there), and the latest TV series I'm watching on DVD.
At the moment, it's McLeods Daughters.
Loved it when it was on telly years ago, still love it now!!

Has been an alright day all round really!
How bout yours?

What's on your wish list? 

Well, there's always things that we all wish for!
Here are a few of mine...

** I want a desk like that for my craft room - I'm hoping to shift some things around and make my creative space more workable

** I would like the shelves for my kitchen to store all my loose leaf tea containers instead of clogging my benches. I use them everyday so would like them easily accessible, not stashed in a cupboard.

** When I get my entrance way cleared, this is the hall table I would like to grace the welcoming area of our home :-)

** Hammock for outside (on the deck maybe), and the bean bag for indoor relaxing!

** I've been super keen to buy a Samantha Wills ring. I'm totes loving the chunky ring look!

And there you have wish list right now.
What's yours??

What's on your to-read list, and what have you recently read?

Well, my most sort-of recent reads have been the books - Take One, Take Two, and Take Three in the Above The Line series by Karen Kingsbury.
Karen Kingsbury would have to be one of my most fave authors - she writes the best Christian fiction and always addresses so many issues we deal with today.

What I am reading right now?
Well I have always got a few books on the go at once so here is what I have on my bedside table right now that I am currently reading...

I have only read a chapter and a bit of this book yet. Many people can read it practically in one sitting and get started on their journey to using the #kondomari method in their own home. I don't get to read as often as I used to anymore so it takes me forever to get a book started let alone getting it read in any short amount of time.
I'm quite enjoying's interesting and I know that some of Marie's thoughts and concepts will be useful. It's probably the most popular and talked-about book in its market at the moment - who would have thought that tidying up is something we need to be taught to do properly that it warrants a book to be written about it!! LOL!

Just keeping on with the series.
It's always such an uplifting and feel-good experience reading anything written by Karen. I always feel so engaged and connected to the characters in each of her novels.

I must admit, I'm not very far into this book. The Karen Kingsbury book always wins when choosing what to read ;-)
I have heard great things about it, which is why I purchased it. I love Ann's quotes she writes. Such honest, straight to the heart of the matter kinda stuff - love that!

On my to-read list?
Well, that pile is rather large so I'll just share a few of the top ones...
>> All three books by Lisa Messenger of The Collective mag (Daring & Disruptive, Life & Love, Money & Mindfulness)
>> Fringe Hours by Jessica N Turner
>> The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
and many more.

What are you reading or would like to read?
