Weekly photo challenge: on the way (home)

Where to start with photos for interpreting this week’s challenge of ‘on the way’? I started by thinking of some of our recent trips and came up with these ideas: Our cycling trip in Croatia last year where every day gave us a new destination that we had to ride to with amazing stops and views along the way?  We…

Tea Time #11 – Birthday month

I read somewhere recently, (I can’t remember where though), that the mother should be congratulated on the birth-day of her children rather than the way we do it now, showering the birthday child with gifts and birthday wishes.    I presume because the mother has done all the work in producing said child.  I don’t mind this idea! I remember sending my mother flowers when…

Weekly Photo challenge: (Morning has) broken 

A different take on finding beauty in something broken – here’s my glasshouse/sunroom welcoming the start to a new day on a cold and frosty morning. I also want to re-use my favourite droplets of dew photo from my recent post  – just because I love it so much and because it fits in with my morning has broken theme for this week’s…

Droplets of Dew – Changing seasons 05

While having breakfast this morning, I looked outside and saw these droplets of dew sparkling in the early morning sunshine.  I felt compelled to walk out onto the wet dewy lawn to take some photos even though it meant I would be late for work! I took them (as usual) with my iPhone and am quite happy with how they have come up.  I call this…

Eclectic Corner #11, week 3, Momentarily – Favourite Quote

Eclectic Corner #11 week 3 is all about our favourite quotes, with the theme this month being Momentarily.  I love all sorts of quotes and have many little books full of inspirational quotes, messages and thoughts.  Quotes can help focus my thoughts and often sum up my feelings in just a few words, much better than I ever seem to be able to! I…

Weekly photo challenge: Enveloped – 2 examples

When I saw the prompt of Enveloped for this week’s photo challenge I knew what I wanted to write about. But how to find a photo to show this?  I then looked out the window and saw the sea of fog rising out of the valley below and decided to use this photo! Enveloped is to surround completely, to enclose, to wrap, to…

Eclectic Corner #11 – Week 2 – Momentarily

Momentarily In the scheme of things We are on this world but momentarily. How we leave the world is more important than the number of years we live in regards to what we’ve done and what we’ve achieved. What will we be remembered for? What will we leave behind as our legacy? What memories and stories will they tell? Momentarily is the…

Waving while running

Run, Debbie, run….

Today is Mother’s Day here in Australia and that means the annual Mother’s Day Classic. This is an event for walkers, runners, families, friends and people of all ages to come together in support of Breast Cancer research. Events are held all over Australia and usually include the colour pink in some form. My daughter & I entered our first…

Weekly photo challenge: nature is a force to be reckoned with

I love nature – it’s so alive and yet it can be so contradictory. It is capable of being beautiful yet devastating; colourful yet stark; simple yet so complicated. A bit like life itself really! This photo was taken at Mt Jagumba, where bushfires have ravaged the area over recent years. These trees are all dead, ghosts of their former…
