6 Things I’m Loving Right Now #WWandPics


It’s Wednesday again and I’m delighted to share 6 things I’m loving right now.


I’ve tried to make Wednesdays a day for sharing some amazing moments and you’re welcome to join in #wakeupandbeamazingwednesday. Sometimes I do a Wordless Wednesday post just to mix it up.

As I’ve said many times, it’s not always big things that take my fancy, it can be simple things like a swinging in the hammock on a hot day or the views on a morning walk.

Thistles and Kiwis does a similar thing each week with her Small Pleasures and she features lots of other posts she’s enjoyed – it’s always interesting to see what others are enjoying.

The way I see it, looking for the amazing in a day can always make me smile.

What 6 things am I loving at the moment?

1. I LOVE swinging in the hammock

We’ve had some lovely HOT days lately, think mid 30+ temperatures, and under the trees in the backyard swinging in the hammock is the coolest place to be.

2. Walking in the forest in the early morning

I forgot just how lovely it is to get up early-ish and go for a walk in the forest before the day gets too hot – especially after an overnight storm. So refreshing and peaceful – a great way to start the day!

3. An evening walk

An evening walk after dinner when the temperature finally starts to drop is just as lovely! The colours in the sky were beautiful.

4. Walking with the Kangaroos

As I walked up the back paddock I scared a few kangaroos and off they went. Loved catching this one as he jumped away!

5. That Golden light!

This beautiful light and the clouds as I walked home was too lovely not to share!

6. Sometimes I love breaking the rules!

This a track I regularly walk and it’s also a one way mountain bike track – but I ignore the sign and walk it the wrong way! I don’t often meet a bike rider 🙂

    1. Hi Janis, the hammock really is comfy and a great spot to read on a hot afternoon. I put a lot of trust in the knots holding it up!

      Not a stupid question at all about the kangaroos – it’s a hard one to explain though. Let me try…where we live (in the country) they are commonplace and can be a pest in that they cause lots of car accidents as they get quite flighty and you can never tell which way they’ll jump (but it’s usually right into your space and can do a lot of damage to vehicles). They are probably like your deer in many ways. In cities if there’s bush around they can be found but not jumping down the main thoroughfare as seems to be portrayed. In some outback areas they have to do culls of them as they cause damage to crops and there are just too many of them. Apparently they are also farmed for their meat which has gained popularity over the years.

      We like having them in our back paddock and the forest and they never threaten us but take flight whenever we are nearby. It’s a great pastime when our grandkids are here to go looking for them and try to be as quiet as possible. I like them! Hope that helps a bit 🙂


  1. I love your be amazing Wednesday posts! All those photos are wonderful. Isn’t it great to have a non urban area to walk in. Puts us in nature and a happy mental spot so much easier. Bernie

    1. Yes Bernie walk in nature ticks all my boxes too!! Glad to hear you enjoyed my post I love that my words and photos can impact on others, something I never imagined would happen!


  2. I love these small happy things Deb – like the quote in my post the other week about the tiny happy things that we sometimes overlook. I laughed at you being such a rule breaker and going the wrong way up the path – I think it’s smart because you can see the bikes hurtling towards you and get out of the way – instead of getting bowled over from behind!

    1. Thanks Leanne, we need to look for the small things sometimes and I’m pretty good at finding them these days. Yes now everyone knows my rule breaking side of my personality but I agree it makes sense as there’s nothing worse than a bike coming up unheard behind you on a secluded track in the bush!


    1. Yes Susanne we’ve had some lovely warm days this month with more to come, having said that it’s raining today. It’s OK though as we need some rain on the garden.


  3. What gorgeous six things Deb! I go starry eyed when I see the landscapes around where you live! To be able to go for a walk in a forrest would be lovely and with kangaroos even better! I’m still loving the fact I don’t have to get up, get ready, catch the train and go to work in the city each day. Still grateful for that. I miss some of the social aspects of it but not the daily commute and long days working, getting home at dark, walking in straight to the kitchen to cook dinner. I LOVE that my day to day life does not look like that now! xo

    1. I’m much the same Min, the morning routine is so much easier and relaxing than when I worked. I’m grateful too!
      I love my home and area, I try not to take it for granted. Thanks for your lovely words.


  4. That was such a joyful and happy post Deb. Love, love the nature surrounding you. And I occasionally break a rule like that too…when it is not dangerous!! Thank you for your blog post shared on Wednesday’s Words and Pics this week. I do appreciate your support. I hope to see you next week too. Denyse.

  5. I had never been in a hammock until we were stationed in the Republic of Panama. I fell in love!! Something about the gentle swaying while being in nature just chases your cares away.

    We have some lovely hikes that have been closed up because the Army used the areas years ago for arms testing. And there are undetonated things…grenades? bombs? along those mountain trails. I wish they would go in and clean them up. But then some contractor would start building strip malls there.
