After a hot lunch, we went for a browse down the Gallery Walk which is basically a street with lots of stores selling handmade crafts and souvenirs. Soooooo many goodies and sooooooooo tempting!
After the gallery walk, we followed a trail through the rainforest. The drop in temperature was incredible as the tall, rainforest canopy (below) kept things very cool.
The trees are huge and amazing! Aaron posed beside/inside this one which had quite an unusual base. Almost like a comforting arm beckoning one to enter it's secret cave within. To the right of Aaron, there was a large alcove.....almost cavelike.
I mentioned to the kids that I was on the look out for 'hearts in nature' and Beau spotted this upside down heart almost immediately. Notice the heart shaped leaves surrounding it?
Then Beau's girlfriend, Tiffany, spotted a heart-shaped leaf on the forest floor. Neat!
I spotted this heart-shaped leaf vine too.
We walked on to Curtis Falls - Very soothing......
All in all, it was a lovely day well spent.
Today (Monday), I managed to paint a little more on the Rainbow Lorikeet. I will post a pic tomorrow. I even managed another Zentangle. Some time in nature was just was I needed to feel rejuvenated again.

Michelle and Alex came to visit today and we had such a lovely time. We assembled our own homemade pizzas for lunch which were absolutely delicious! We watched family videos back to when the kids were all little and reminisced about good times. We also had a good laugh at some of the funny moments and, of course, my tight curl, 'helmet' perm (what was I thinking?! lol).
Michelle and Alex gave me a beautiful pink dressing gown for Mother's Day which I am currently wearing as I type. A storm moved through last night and left behind some cold, icy winds for today so my dressing gown is perfect for keeping me cosy and warm. I think I will go to bed early tonight and snuggle up with a good book and a hot mug of chai tea.

I meant to post these pics a week ago. When Michelle and Alex stayed overnight for Skye's 18th party, we had extra mattresses spread out on the floor. Aaron decided to make good use of them the next day. Here he is in his 'tent'. lol

Here is a pic of the new slippers Aaron bought for me. They are so comfortable and sure to keep my tootsies warm as toast in winter.
I leave you with a saying I like by Elizabeth Stone -
Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go on
walking around outside your body.

I did manage to get a little more done on the Lorikeet painting and will post that tomorrow so stay tuned.
PURELAND Organic HOMMUS
I've been a vegan for nearly three months now so I'm trying out all the non-dairy, non-animal foods that are available and it's been quite a treat so far. I have never tried Hommus before and I can tell you this taste sensation is going to be a staple in my fridge from now on. It is DELICIOUS!!! I have to force myself to stay away from it. I'm serious....it is THAT good!
I've tried the Nandos Extra Hot Peri-peri sauce before but I've never tried the Cholula hot sauce so I'm looking forward to it. I LOVE the cute, little bottles!
I'm still not feeling 100% so I'm taking things easy at the moment. I will try to get back on track with my posting though plus I have heaps of my fave blogs to catch up with too.
Blessings and hugs to all of you and I hope you are all fit and well.
