Although Autumn begins today l thought you might enjoy seeing a few pics l took a couple of weeks ago on a lovely Summers' afternoon.
l think everyone appreciates some quiet time every now and then, and what better way to enjoy it than to grab some mags, a few comforts and head out into the sun to lay about for an hour or so....l admit l do often get distracted listening to the birds and trying to figure out what kind they are by their songs and cheeps....l have to say though..... my pink flamingo's pretty quiet :-))
These warm and dreamy days encourage my thoughts to wander a bit...when hubby and l were young (pre kids) we lived for many years on the (Gold) coast....l remember some mornings before work l'd stroll along the beach to yoga classes at the surf lifesavers club.....half the time l'd accidently drift off while l was supposed to be oomming and have a little kip..... but hey l wasn't the only one.....our teacher had a VERY calming voice.....anyway it was a nice relaxing way to start the day:-))
We once rented (half) a house just a stones' throw from the beach...the place had a bit of a beach party vibe 'cos at the time we also lived with my brother and the guys next door were mates...
Back then l really believed awesome home decor was a (feature) wall of surfboards, towels over the balcony and flippers on the floor :-))
Having just moved out of home, l wasn't much of a cook either (oh wait...l'm still not haha!!) and once l almost set our little place on fire. l popped the roast in the oven and (ironically:-)) covered it with foil to stop it from burning and off l went to the shops.....On the way out l had a quick chat with the neighbor, and was about to drive off when l realised l'd forgotton something and ran back inside....only to discover the kitchen full of smoke and flames pouring from the oven.....somehow the foil had caught alight ....by some miracle l was able to put it out....but it was a lesson learned and l've never gone out while cooking again.
A few pics l've taken over the last few months.....books!!! always a great source of inspiration.
These wooden dolls are used by artists to position so they can get the body anatomy correct....l've tried using them a few times....never very successfully:-))
Last weekend son competed in a 10 k run in Geelong, as it required a VERY early start he was heading there alone...that is until l realised that the start line was within walking distance of the Geelong market.....l somehow managed to convince him that it would be to his benefit to have me come along too:-)) WIN WIN***
Son took this photo about 7.00 am...overlooking Eastern beach...it's not been edited in any way.
Hope you've all had a wonderful week and enjoy a beautiful weekend coming up...hubby reminded me last night that we'll celebrate 29 years of marriage on Sunday...it's a fair effort haha!!
Til next time.
