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
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 →
Whilst having a quiet day home today I came upon an interesting article. It made me think. About life, people and things. But let’s take a few steps back some years to when my son and his wife came visiting from Texas. Texas shares it’s border with Mexico, so naturally there is quite a connection […] Continue reading →
Australia is indeed a spacious land. A safe Haven mainly, where we can explore and wander and discover, if we are so inclined. In the 1950′s Australia was billed as a Land of Milk and Honey to migrants. A land of untapped wealth and needing workers. So they came, to help build the infrastructure and […] Continue reading →

Today I share with you an email received from our son in Texas Mum Thought you’d like this time lapse video of the plant called the Rose of Jericho. With water it goes from a dried up tumbleweed to a beautiful fern over a couple of hours. I watched it and was thinking that people […] Continue reading →
Thoughts from this day Yesterday the shortest day for us Down Under Today a grey and dismal dawning Yet…Later graced by sun to warm and skies of blue Hearing of dear old friend passing Yet…Remembering about his many deeds and kindnesses Realizing that the years roll on for all, young and old alike One moment […] Continue reading →
Change… “To make something different. You can cause something to change, or you can bring change upon yourself.”… Google Business Dictionary Change When change is as good as a holiday Dust out those gorgeous china cups and use them more Change enlightens the spirit You are aching for a holiday, a change to the everyday […] Continue reading →
The power of networking Sharing, supporting each other, extending oneself, opening new horizons, searching out new ways to help yourself by connecting with another My example of networking came to me randomly as I was reading about the struggles farmers go through. We support a butcher who is I guess is semi rural. When I […] Continue reading →
Lavender is one of my favourite flowers and once established in a friendly spot is as tough as old boots, as you can see in my photo! Lavender a symbol of an old worldy age, a simple life. From Wikipedia… “Lavandula (common name lavender) is a genus of 39 species of flowering plants in the […] Continue reading →
