Australian Autumn

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.


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

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

  6. sounds like a great day :D Wish I had a dishwasher but would have to give up the couch to fit one in the flat :p and I don't want to sit on the floor

  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.

  8. Lovely way to bring in the new season. Thank you so much for your kind and wise words on my blog today. I am so blessed ti have such dear cyber friends! So glad to know you!

  10. Family time can be such a joy. I love how y'all are upside down, or is that me :).

  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. :)
