365 Grateful – Day 130

This is an Agave in a pot by my pool.  I love the shapes, the colours, the smooth lines.  They are such hardy plants.  Drought tolerant in fact, which is perfect here in Queensland where we can go long periods without rain (though we sure got our fair […]

365 Grateful – Day 129

I’ve been having a bit of a flat day today.  I’m disappointed in how unmotivated and unorganised I’m feeling and I’m also suffering huge amounts of guilt.  Though I’m paying for it, I haven’t been to gym in ages.  I just don’t feel like it.  Why do I […]

365 Grateful – Day 128

Oh look….I can see blue sky!! As much as I love rainy days, I am very grateful to see blue sky and calmly swaying palm trees again now that the very scary weather system has finally passed over.   A bit of trivia:  I am so getting into this […]

365 Grateful – Day 127

I’m grateful that we have come through the severe weather system experienced in South East Queensland, as a result of ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald, unscathed.  Our house is in tact and we have power and water.  All we have is some debris to clean up and we lost one […]

365 Grateful – Day 126

When I posted my 365 Grateful – Day 124 photo, I had no idea what was to come.  I still love rainy days!  However, the exteme weather caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald that began in the North East Coastal area of Queensland and which is now moving through […]

365 Grateful – Day 125

Photo above:  Arriving at the church – 26 January 1985 Photo below:  Photographs before the reception.  This was taken at the University of Queensland. 28 years ago today, MrMM and I were married.  Today is our wedding anniversary.  I can’t say the last 28 years have always been […]

365 Grateful – Day 124

I’m grateful for rainy days!  For one thing, during a hot summer they usually offer some cool relief (like today).  They also make you feel cosy and grateful for your home.  I love going to bed at night with the sound of rain to drift off to, and […]

Flashback Friday: The Honeymoon

For last week’s Flashback Friday, I talked about how MrMM and I met (see HERE).   As it approaches our 28th wedding anniversary (26 January – Australia Day – tomorrow!!), I thought I would keep with the theme this week and flashback to our honeymoon. We honeymooned at Norfolk […]

365 Grateful – Day 123

I’m grateful for the gorgeous relaxing soak in the bath I had tonight, surrounded in candlelight and with beautiful classical music playing softly to add to the relaxation.  I really must do this more often! Linking up today with Leigh of Six by the Bay for Thankful Thursday […]
