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

Home late after a full Sunday out House is dark.

Far too windy today to do any gardening as can be seen by my grown from a cutting Lavender bush. It is sailing to the left. The plan had been to spray the Roses again for scale to really kill those suckers before all the new leaves appear on my for now Winter hibernating bushes. […] Continue reading →
Last night just thinking of myself and craving a snack I found a recipe for Chocolate Chia pudding. I pottered about in a hum drum sort of way and put the prepared healthy pudding in the fridge to soak ready for the next morning. Morning arrives and with much anticipation I prepare to be delighted […] Continue reading →

From Wikipedia… “Lavandula (common name lavender) is a genus of 39 species of flowering plants in the […] Continue reading →
