Another slow day...

Aaah holidays! The chance to take things slowly and savour the moments and today was such a day.
A little bit of planing for work, the morning or what was left of it after a latish breakfast and then a chat and a bit of sitting around. Then a latish lunch and finally some time on my art journals trying to find my style- mucking around with techniques and ideas.

Then after dinner meeting Bernadette and Alex at Ellen's Stardust Diner and enjoying their company (Alex and Bernadette's that is) and a few drinks and a few songs. Now home in the warm and the prospect of not much other than what happened today as a repeat for tomorrow- ain't holidays grand!

If you haven't visited Tami's blog and seen the gorgeous Zach talking to Santa check it out via the link on the right- Tami is scrapping or even try it here.

Nearing Year's End

It seems not only has this month flown but the entire year! Looked back what I was doing this time last year and I realize I was home in Footscray so here are some of the photos interspersed through this.....The back yard in Footscray
I've been looking at photos to try and throw a photo book together and keep thinking- "oh yes that was this year".
Gum blossom
Today has been probably the most lazy unproductive day of the whole year! The main accomplishment other than getting out of bed was cleaning out the only cupboard that could be called our "pantry" cupboard. Took all of thirty minutes to sort the out of date things, wipe the shelves and then decide what and how to organize the items retained.

Kangaroo Paw
The rest of the day has been.... napping and checking out blogs.
A caffe latte

Perhaps some visitors this evening will get me moving a little more!

Walking in a Winter wonderland

After the snowstorm, earylish on Sunday morning I went for a walk... here are some of the photos.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Later on, we'll conspire,
As we dream by the fire

To face unafraid,
The plans that we've made,

Walking in a winter wonderland.

When it snows, ain't it thrilling,

Though your nose gets a chilling

We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,

Walking in a winter wonderland.
