Sharing blogs …

We all need new blogs to follow … don’t we? 😉 Every now and then, I weed through my list of blogs on Google Reader and unsubscribe from blogs that are no longer updated on a regular basis. It always makes me sad to do this, but in the interests of a neat blog list, […]

Spring colour …

I was very specific … I ordered a fine day for visiting Hunter Valley Gardens. What I didn’t order was a wind-free day! When you are photographing flowers, you need no wind. Sigh. It was warm, sunny and  blowing a gale at the Gardens, and we had lots of trouble trying to photography buzzy bees […]

Early morning visitors …

The kookaburra on the left was feeding the fatter kookaburra on the right, which I am guessing is the baby … or lazy teenager! I took some great shots of the ‘worm feeding’ then realized my memory card was in my laptop, so by the time I got organized and back to the window, breakfast […]

I like lists …

Not sure why I like lists, but I do. Often I can’t find them, after I have written them up, especially shopping lists, but it seems that just writing them up pops them into my short-term memory, and I can usually remember what I have written. Today I officially start a few days holiday, which […]

I think spring has sprung … :)

One day you are wearing a winter coat to work, and the next wool suddenly seems overkill, and closed-in shoes feel stifling! Last night I came home from work at 10 pm wearing a cardi with three-quarter sleeves … and here’s the kicker, I didn’t even notice! Yup, I think spring might have arrived … […]

Splashes of colour …

Just outside my door at work is a border of these beautiful flowers … my (gardening) mother would be mortified, but I have no idea what they are called. I just know that they are good camera fodder!!! A teeny weeny little blue flower, just outside my window, jewel-like. If you weren’t looking, you would […]

Off road again …

Hit the dusty trail again today, so restful to be driving with DH and one offspring (parked waaaaay away up the back of the 4WD, almost like not having a kid with us … except that he could hear me talking softly to DH! How does that happen?) We wandered up and down the trails, […]

simple things 101

I’ve been meaning to comment about the lovely surroundings I work in. I’m based in a higher ed library, and this is the view just outside my office. I work on the ground floor of a three-story library in a teeny tiny office, just by the back door. It is just the prettiest rural campus, […]

On the road …

And what a muddy road it was too! DH said as he was washing the car today, he may as well make his effort worthwhile! That’s a guys’ logic for you!!! When he asked if I would like to go for a drive up in the hills, I forgot that it had been raining recently […]

[Credits: Simple Sets PAD Weeks 32-35, paper from [heartfelt] paper pack by [ksharonkdesigns] … ] I’ve had a busy day … I wore my jeans to work today to help clean out ‘the dungeon’ in the bottom of our big library. I wrestled two big pink filing cabinets (fortunately empty!) from one side of the […]
