365 Grateful – Day 135

The beach house at Caloundra where we are currently staying for our holiday belongs to MrMM’s brother and his wife.  We have been coming here for many years. The photograph today is looking up to the loft in the back bedroom.  The ground level has four single beds […]

365 Grateful – Day 134

We’re on holidays at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.  Today Ava went to the beach for the very first time and Chelsea revisited the beach which she loves so much.  Chelsea will be 13 on March 3rd and has bad arthritis in her back legs, so this was […]

365 Grateful – Day 133

I love holidays, but I really dislike the preparations and packing required to go away.  Now that all our kids are finished with schooling, we’re taking our annual holiday outside of the school holiday period.  We’re heading up to Caloundra at the Sunshine Coast.  MrMM, Twin2 and Chelsea […]

365 Grateful – Day 132

Thank goodness for our Kreepy Krauly!  After the recent severe weather conditions experienced here as a result of ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald, the bottom of our pool was filled will debris (leaves, twigs, branches, dirt and goodness knows what else) and the water was dirty after the pool’s surrounding […]

365 Grateful – Day 131

Tonight I am very much looking forward to having a shower and washing my hair.  It’s been a long, hot day!  As you saw in my 365 Grateful – Day 123 post, I really enjoy the occasional soak in a tub (by candlelight!) but I also love my […]

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 […]
