Welcome to my weekly Monday Musings
A week of good news:
In case you missed the news, the required legislation to close the disused Rail Corridor between Tumbarumba and Rosewood finally passed through the NSW Parliament during the week. This is fantastic news for those of us who have been patiently working behind the scenes to enable a rail trail for cyclists, walkers, runners, wheelchairs, prams… to be built. Funding was granted to the local Council over 2 years ago and now the work on construction can start! It was a day of great relief and celebration to all of us. I wrote this post last week in response to Transient, the weekly photo prompt – How the transient nature of transport has turned.
Rotary – good fun:
Our local Rotary Club celebrated another great year on Friday, with its annual Changeover Dinner. This is a night to look at the year that was and induct the new President and the Board for 2017/18. This is a great photo of our new team – good luck President Therese in keeping us under control!! We also farewelled our beautiful German Exchange Student as she leaves for home next weekend. She’s been a real asset to the club and her confidence, good nature and willingness to be involved in a small community has won her many friends. It was a fun night!
Travel – always good:
After a busy week at home, I was soon winging my way to visit my mother for her birthday. The early morning fog nearly had other ideas but I made it in time to meet my connecting flight and arrived into a very warm Queensland. I left home at 6am with the temperature at 0 degrees and arrived in Queensland to a temperature of 24 degrees. This meant I was only a bit overdressed for the day!! It was a lovely feeling of warmth though. My sister and I had coordinated our arrival times within 15 minutes of each other and all went according to plan. We visited our father in his aged care facility and went out to dinner with mum and a friend, before seeing a show together. It was a fun, but very late, night! We met up with our brother and other family members the next day for mum’s birthday lunch and had a great day catching up. Mum enjoyed her weekend with her three children around her and we all got to catch up with dad and all the news. I love taking photos from the air and the day was just so perfect and clear. I’m pleased with how they turned out.
Recently I read a post about the necessity of a blog logo and as I had been thinking of updating things I investigated the option of a customised logo. This is the post by SheryL – 5 reasons why you should make a blog logo. I decided to look into this option. I went through Etsy and found someone who was offering a suitable service, messaged her, sent her a photo with some comments, and within a week I had my very own logo. She was great to work with and made the changes I requested very quickly and I’m very happy with my new logo – I’d love to know what you think of it too? I am now using this logo on all my social media accounts. Does it remind you of anything/anyone?
From other Bloggers:
Lots of great blogs were read during the week, I really love the blogging community and the talented bloggers from all around the world, who I get to communicate with on a regular basis.
Mondays are for musing and mulling over the week so feel free to join me.
I’d love to know what you’ve been up to. How are you changing the world??
