it turned out to be quite a busy day....shopping, weeding, and mowing the lawn, being just a few chores i was able to cross off my list. we also went for another walk in the afternoon.....an attempt to lose some christmas calories. i took the camera and caught this golden beauty. it's a grevillea which is native to Australia....rainbow lorikeets LOVE the nectar....there are quite a few different types of grevillea and i think this one is called 'honey gem'.
while walking, we passed a group of ducks and i wondered if one of them may be the owner of the egg we found on our walk the other day.
you can visit the link shown under 2009 happenings in the sidebar to find out more about 'mantra monday' but, basically, it is about sharing an affirmation or mantra card that i have made myself OR that i have chosen from a published affirmation deck.
i had such good intentions of making my first mantra monday card but it turned out to be such a full and exhausting day that, i never got the chance to sit down and create. i was a little disappointed but i figure there will be many more mantra mondays so still lots of opportunities to make my own cards. for today, i picked a card from my deck of cheryl richardson's self care cards. i thought it funny, that the random card chosen turned out to be - rejuvenation.
i'm laughing at the uncanniness of it because, as with every set of school holidays, my body clock gets out of whack with no set daily routines and i seem to have a lot of late nights which is so not the norm for me. needless to say, it catches up with me through the day and i find myself feeling very tired. interesting that this card showed up today and i think i will follow the advice as soon as i have published this post.
