i think this pic was taken in one of our southern states as, up here in queensland, we really don't see the obvious seasonal changes at all.



52 WEEKS OF ME - WEEK EIGHT

this pic was taken on monday, in the cinema, where brad and i went to see the movie, twilight.


SACRED LIFE SUNDAY

it's been another hectic week for me so, again, i found myself with very little time at the computer. michelle, my daughter, stayed over for a couple of days too which was lovely as always. then, today, my mum and dad visited for lunch and a fun afternoon of playing cards and general family chit-chat.

today, i was grateful for -


  • a beautiful fine day

  • quality time spent with my family

  • yummy food and sated appetites - mum brought a salmon loaf and a veggie loaf while i did the garlic cream potatoes, sweet potato, pumpkin and brussels sprouts

  • music - brad was in charge of the music playlist and it went down very well. I've always loved background music as I think it helps set a relaxed and happy mood

  • the dishwasher - what a blessing! to think, at one point, i never wanted a dishwasher....what was i thinking??!!!

  • the nana nap i had late afternoon

  • my nice, cosy bed where i'll be headed to shortly

love, light and peace

  7. Simple days with family are always great. Sounds like you rang in the Autumn with wonderful intentions. I love going to the movies. . . nothing better than getting lost in a film and munching on popcorn.
    Peace~

  11. At least if you had to walk it was ambling thru all those beautiful areas! Spring is a long way off up here in Fargo--hehe! More like April/May. So I love to see the pictures of the land down there in Australia. :)
