Living in the moment.The ever changing scenes of a week gone.
A Diary of sorts
31 May being the last day of Autumn.
Remnants of Roses. A fleeting glimpse of Summer gone.
1 June the first day of Winter.
Braving the cold wind in the garden
Mending day with 60 year old faithful
3 June Saturday
Grey skies so I always go looking for colour in the garden
4 June. Sunday
Sharing Birthday lunch with family and friends.
Boys…Friends and cousins showing off their trampoline skills
Then hurrying off to fish in the dam over the hill
Driving home through the always beautiful countryside.
Worrombi and Cobbity- my favourites
Observing the low sun created shadows as it hastes to bed amongst the hills
5 June Monday
Taking deep into the soul brilliant blue skies and warm hued Autumn leaves
Finding sunny nooks amongst Winter shadows for a slow morning tea
Sitting in a warm sunroom before dusk approaches
Seeing a molten gold sun slip silently behind the western hills
6 June Tuesday
A mending, bed linen washing, soup making kind of day.
Starting off clear and windy for line drying but changing to cold and wet. Needing a cheerful fire and happy flowers kind of day recently enjoyed at our friends home.
My beloveds birthday
Wet and cold. Double bar gas heating start to damp morning
Boys in school uniforms to be picked up
Happy birthday to be sung to grandpa….we love our grandchildren. Big and small.
I love these sorts of weeks
The plain, the mundane, the grey, the ordinary mixed with the extraordinary
Find exquisite beauty where you can
However small or humble
Linking up with What Joy is mine

On the first day of August Which now seems light years away It being the last month of official Winter in Australia.

What do you see Your first impression When you compare First fleeting impressions hit the eye immediately. How plain How happy How tall she walks How sad they look How harried they appear How naughty that child Wow, beautiful or handsome Wish I had some of that But that is only an impression Not the […] Continue reading →
Wishing with all my heart that I could paint… Longing to paint and capture that emotion Holding our youngest grandson recently At one with the calm Australian bush scene before me Quietly standing sheltered from the rain Under the pattering metal roofed verandah Falling big plops of rain Dripping from the corrugated iron roof edge […] Continue reading →
Darting Swallows far away to our North. Where spring is underway. Busy, oh so busy, Building or repairing nests For shelter, nurture and home. Such has been life…. Moving into another house. Loving it here. A snip of a Rose here, finding a home for this. Food for a group , or just for one. […] Continue reading →
It has been so very long since my last post. So long that I cannot remember what I wrote about without checking back. If I do pause to reminisce and check my last article then the internet may drop out. The pause will be like discovering a drawer full of old photos. Memories. Ghosts. Sadness. […] Continue reading →

Hitting the Pause button… My kitchen table Bare feet Perfect for sitting and thinking Door open to the back garden Slight breeze from outside Slow whirling fan on the other side How blessed Washing on line showing off its drying flip flying dance I can just sit and ponder At nature, even in a small […] Continue reading →
