365 Grateful – Day 22

I’m grateful for my new glasses!  I only just picked them up today.  From the left we have my new stylish and snazzy glasses for long distance (never needed these before *sigh*) – to be used mainly for night driving, maybe watching TV and if I go to a […]

365 Grateful – Day 21

I’m grateful for Chelsea’s bath times when afterwards she has a burst of energy and we see a glimpse of the puppy of yesterday.  Chelsea is a 12 1/2 year old tri-colour Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  Apart from when there is food around, these days she mostly sleeps […]

365 Grateful – Day 20

I’m grateful for weekend chill out time – away from the computer – reading by the pool!  This is where I spent a portion of this afternoon and it’s one of my favourite things to do.  Beautiful day here today in Brisbane!  Hmm do you notice that bit […]

365 Grateful – Day 19

I’m grateful for sisters!  Sisters are the best friends you could ever have.  Today one of my sisters and I went out to lunch and then a movie.  We went to see ‘Mental‘.  If you haven’t seen it – you must!  It was fantastic – one of the […]

365 Grateful – Day 18

I’m grateful for the rain we are getting in Brisbane today!  It’s been a long time since our last rainy day and everywhere you look is dry and brown.  There have been many gusty and windy days of late and high fire risk warnings, so this rain is […]

365 Grateful – Day 17

I’m grateful for my Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera.  It was a birthday present last May from MrMM and the kids.  Though I don’t yet know how to use it to its potential, on 21 October I’m attending a 4 hour SLR Course and plan to attend an […]

365 Grateful – Day 16

I’m grateful for Jacaranda trees!  They are currently in flower all over Brisbane and they are my favourite tree.  This tree was one I found in Manly when out and about today.  It looked so beautiful, I pulled over my car and took a photo.  Ok – several […]

365 Grateful – Day 15

I’m grateful that I am a little bit creative.  Being creative is very therapeutic and very satisfying when you get good results!  The photograph today is of an abstract acrylic painting I did a couple of years ago.  Whilst it is far from a masterpiece, I was quite […]

365 Grateful – Day 14

I’m grateful for pine cones!  We have many pine trees nearby to us and they drop a lot of pine cones.  We often collect them to put around our pot plants.  As you can see in today’s photograph, I have a plant in a plastic pot sitting inside […]

365 Grateful – Day 13

I am very grateful for books!  As I pointed out in a recent post, I have always loved to read.  Reading not only can educate you, but can transport you to another place and another time.  Reading can reduce stress, provide tranquility and solace, increase your vocabulary and […]
