Weekly photo challenge: Welcome to my ‘Happy Place’

happy place

Krista asks us to show us our Happy Place in this week’s photo challenge….

Where do you go when you need to think? What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? How do you get your sense of humor back? How do you recharge your groove? 

A book to read

A cup of tea

Some delicious lunch

A cool breeze

A sunshiny day

Spring growth in my garden

Lots of open space

Quiet, peace, undemanding, accepting


That’s my happy place.

How about you, where’s your happy place that lets you recharge?

I’m reminded of the John Williamson classic song ‘Home among the Gumtrees’:

I’ve been around the world
A couple of times or maybe more
I’ve seen the sights, I’ve had delights
On every foreign shore
But when my mates all ask me
The place that I adore
I tell them right away

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

That sums it up quite nicely!

Deb 🙂

  1. Love it! And love the song. I was asked to sing a song that epitomised Australia when I was OS a while ago – I sang that song!

  2. I could easily time travel to join you in your happy place! Beautiful, Debbie.

  3. I’m right there with you, especially with that cup of tea and the book. Outdoors? Even better.
