We have a bit of a mixed bag of weather this week, from cool bleak mornings to incredible sunshine, then overshadowed by clouds and the possibility of rain. Right now, the sun is shining and I can see the 2/3 moon from my window. Here are some pics from a recent 'cup of tea in the back garden'.
|some freestyle art on a little corner of the back fence. |
this was a group effort soon after we moved to this home
seven years ago. I like the faded look, at the same time as thinking
it's time to add to it.

|oh, you magnificent magnolia|
Wishing you sunshine today. Have a great weekend.

I've finally got my blogging energy back. It's been weeks. I've still been browsing some of my favourite sites, just a little lost for words myself. Last weekend my little family and I relaxed at the coast for a few nights. As we sat down to lunch on the balcony on the first day, I saw something out of the corner of my eye. Yes, whales! Thank you Universe for putting my in the right place at the right time. When I am by the sea, I breath deeper, I sleep soundly, I go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean, I am at peace. And me being me, I look forward to the sunrise.
Check out this very cool (i think) photo of a seagull.
The setting sun. This is a colour photo. Almost look B&W doesn't it.
I've been wandering around with my camera this morning, snapping things I love about home....

|Favourite teacup and saucer. "Dawn Flight" by Royal Grafton|
|Introducing Hairy and Whiskas! They reside on the table of our outdoor setting. |
They love a good BBQ and generally smile at all who enters.
|The ancient daybed, wonderful for an afternoon snooze.|
|Favourite shabby stool. When it's not holding a teapot, |
my big enamel bowl of shells live there.
I've enjoyed some lovely pleasures over the last few days. Lunch and a spa pedicure with a friend, followed by a browse at a favourite new shop, Karma Living. I couldn't resist these bath salts, go out and get some, they are worth it. They even include a little packet of rose petals for you to really create the mood.

I hope you've had some happy times over the weekend. Wishing you well into the new week.
