following @crystalmoody …

[crystal moody] Isn’t this a gorgeous collection of creativity? I discovered the Instagram feed of @crystalmoody this morning and was blown away. I clicked back to her website and read about her work … I used to spend way too much time admiring others and not doing anything creative myself. I often found myself looking at cool stuff […]

all is quiet …

Not much happening around here, folks! It’s the middle of the week, and things are quiet. I thought I would share a photo of our front courtyard area, which I have a love/hate relationship with. It’s a lovely spot to sit in the sunshine and enjoy a little morning tea break, but it also seems […]

hello, weekend …

This was our sunset last night … stunning, huh? I’m always locking my phone in the car, then having to hike back up the hill to the garage to retrieve it! You would think I would find a better spot for my phone, wouldn’t you? I arrive through the front door, then realize my phone […]

big weekend …

Last weekend, I flew home … by . myself! All alone! It was fabulous visiting my home state and city, soaking up the spring sunshine, catching up with family and friends. Of course, I slipped in a visit to the dentist and optometrist, so it wasn’t all frivolity and fun! Spring flowers were out, so […]

my dusty SLR …

Do you have one of those? A dusty SLR tucked away somewhere in corner, out of sight, neglected, unused? My once ‘pride & joy’ hardly makes it out of its camera case these days. I would say that 95% of my photos are now taken with my iPhone 4s, and I don’t see this changing […]

It really is all about the location, isn’t it? Tuesday night I have to put the rubbish bins out for collection on Wednesday morning. So off I go, dragging two big bins behind me, down the length of our long driveway. And then I make my way down to the back of our property which […]
