22/2 lazy sunday morning

It wasn't exactly a 'sleep-in', as I have been awake since 4.09am, but it's been a beautiful lazy morning in bed with several cups of tea, some toast with peanut paste, favourite magazines, a visit from Dusty, then, to top it off, my love cooked my breakfast (which I hopped out of bed to eat!).  I can't remember the last time I took this kind of lazy time for myself.  Ought to be more of it I reckon!  Hope your day is off to a peaceful, lazy start.

16-21 Feb

Hi there.  Well, thank heavens for the weekend and some slightly cooler weather.  I thought I would go mad with the heat, more so the humidity this week and having to work in it!  I was too exhausted when I got home to even go outside with the camera. 

I've been taking some inside, and have done a lovely big walk with Miss Dusty this morning and took the camera with us.  A really nice thing happened.  As we were walking across the park near home, we came across a lady with her camera.  We laughed at the co-incidence of meeting in the park with our cameras, when most people in the surrounding houses were probably still sleeping. 

I love the early morning, I truly think it is the best part of the day.  What is your favourite time of the day?

Here goes...

These first few pics are so exciting, because I won a prize.  Not just any prize either.  You must know Koralee from    She has THE sweetest blog, beautiful quotes, simple, meaningful.  It's a blog I retreat to for nourishing my weary soul.  Well, I won her card giveaway!!!!!  I was soooo excited and it's arrived.  Loooooook.......

It was such a delight to receive my parcel, so beautifully wrapped and special!  Thank you Koralee.  I think I will have to frame them because I could never part with them.  Maybe one day when you start selling your collection, I can stock up!  xxxx

Here's how the rest of the week looked through the lens.....

Reminders are good!  I sprinkle them
around the house.
The very beautiful Louise.  As she ages, her new feathers
are longer, with so much more red coming through.

One for each human in the house!

Always stunning, flowering gum
Where will we go today?
I hope you have a great weekend whatever you are up to.

Hello world!

I haven't forgotten my commitment to my project 365, just a bit weary and busy.  Here's one I took the other day of one of our garden ornaments.  The rest coming soon...

Plenty of it here.  Happy weekend.  It's going to be hot, damn hot, where I am this weekend.  How do you stay cool on a hot day?

Believe in your dreams.

Nearly full.  One more sleep.
It's been a bit of a funny old week for me, hence my accumulation of photos!   As positive as we can try and be, some weeks are crappy.  But I do have some really happy things to share in my next post.  Stay tuned, and please stop long enough to leave me a message and say hello!  I need the love right now.

Vintage outdoor setting.
Old, special (belonged to my grandparents).
Well worth a revamp I think.

Another one of those early morning photos!
sweet.  Sitting quietly, looking pretty.

It's a fresh clear morning here today, so I was out early with the camera.  I so love the cooler change, it lifts me to a higher consciousness.  I think clearer, I'm happier.  That can only be good!!! 

I hope you have a happy, smiley day!

I hope you've had a good day.  Thanks for stopping by.  Before you go, I'd love you to leave a comment.  I'm getting lots of views, but no-one is saying anything.  Don't be shy!
