Weekly photo challenge: A vibrant man on his birthday and 500 posts for me

An especially vibrant day – my husband’s birthday and my 500th post! I like the definition of vibrant – full of energy and life –  it describes my husband perfectly! My blog also tries to be full of energy and life 🙂 My photo shows the birthday boy modelling his special birthday sign, just for me to use in my blog (although he…

iPhriday – Clouds in my phone

Clouds in my phone (not my coffee) It’s Phriday again and time for a photo from my phone.  Here’s a lovely shot of the clouds taken early one morning just for you! Lisa from GrayDaysandCoffee started iPhriday where she shares photos taken with her mobile phone, on a Friday and asks us to join in. You can see my previous iPhriday posts…

Mundane Monday Challenge – Muddy and mundane

A muddy mundane Monday! Just another mundane muddy footprint you might think but to me it represents two important things: It’s rained enough to make it muddy and I’m out running! Yep – I’m back out there running, putting one foot after another (although only one footprint is featured, rest assured I have another foot!) I love the texture of…

Weekly photo challenge: The hills are alive with optimism

Optimism is the only way forward for our Tumbarumba Shire! This week’s photo challenge is all about Optimism. This week show us something you’re optimistic about….. Our town maybe small but our Shire is huge in both area and spirit.  We have only a few short weeks to let the State politicians know that we do not want to amalgamate with another…

iPhriday – spontaneity at its best

It’s late on a Saturday afternoon when she asks the question – will we go?  He answers unhesitatingly – yes, why not? And so they go – they spend a few minutes packing an overnight bag of essentials, the bikes go onto the back of the car and within a few minutes they’re off.  Accommodation is sourced along the way, when…

Mundane Monday Challenge – The view through the fence

Come look at the view through the fence…..what do you see? The paddock of dry yellowing grass is my everyday view and so could be seen as mundane, but I still get pleasure looking through the fence. So in some ways yes it is mundane but in other ways it is anything but mundane! Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger on a Monday.  There are…

Weekly photo challenge: Alphabet fun

Having fun with letters of the alphabet and a light box! This week’s photo challenge is all about the Alphabet and I’ve gone for a very literal take on the theme, which is most unlike me. This week, let the alphabet be your inspiration: find a string of letters….. I found my daughter’s light box this morning, still with the…

From the plane window

Weekly photo challenge: Weightless in the sky

Gravity and weightlessness are things I just don’t understand very well but I am left in awe of the end results. I took this photo from the window seat on a recent flight.  I love clouds and being above the clouds in a plane gives them a whole new perspective. I usually stand on the ground looking up and marvelling…
