Blogging thoughts

Apparently I registered my Deb's World blog 4 years ago - who would have thought I'd still be here?!  I have no reason to doubt the scrupulous record keeping of WordPress but gee whiz that time has really flown by! I do remember writing some early posts and deleting them a short time later so …

Mundane Monday Challenge – road trip

Road trip

A mundane drive of just over 5 hours with views like this along the way - minimal traffic, good company, music, sunshine, fluffy white clouds - not too shabby a way to spend a few hours on a Monday. The drive was long but also beautiful, mainly because we had just collected out eldest daughter …

Mundane Monday Challenge – let’s light up the world!

Solar lights are very clever but not something I tend to photograph very often. I decided I'd feature one of my humble, yet colourful, solar lights to show it in a different light for Mundane Monday this week. I just love the crackle texture of these lights. The Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger and is a challenge created to …

Mundane Monday Challenge – getting busy!

It's not just us humans who get busy on a Monday - here are some little visitors who decided my potted plants were a perfect spot to have some breakfast! The Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger and is a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture …

Mundane Monday Challenge – to be or knot to be?

I like the sound of the Mundane Monday Challenge hosted by PhoTrablogger - a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs. Here's my first contribution for Mundane Monday - it's a knot in the timber decking on my …

Every day is an adventure – Day 100

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! I have had a fun time playing around with a new editing app and ended up with this interesting take on a selfie. I have decided to take a break from my Every day is an adventure project for a little while.  I …

Every day is an adventure – 99/365 – more magnolias

Magnolia tree

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure - from little things, big things grow ! I love this time of year when my magnolia tree delivers.  It is a huge tree and full of flowers in all stages of life.  My Day 79 photo was taken just a few short …

Every day is an adventure – 98/365

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! This photo was taken over the weekend and  shows Lynda, the winner of Tumba's Fun 5 - a 5km fun run which was held in conjunction with the Tumbarumba Gym & Fitness centre's Health Expo.  It's also a photo of my massage therapist who …

Every day is an adventure – 97/365

It's all the little moments that make life a very big adventure! Only in my small town could you ride your bike to a fun run event, (plus markets and health expo at the local gym), leave your unlocked bike and helmet leaning against the wall and have it still there when you get back! …

Every day is an adventure – 96/365 – magazine adventure

Every day is as an adventure in my world - Women's Running magazine ! This is very exciting - I replied to a request in a women's running magazine recently, they were looking for women who took up running over the age of 40.  They asked for 100 words and a photo and I sent something in as …

Every day is an adventure – 95/365 – my room with a view

View from sunroom

Every day is as an adventure in my world - even when I'm lazing around looking at the view! Spring has sprung! My room with a view is the perfect place to relax. We always seem too busy to notice the little everyday things but I think it's these things that help us to slow down …

Every day is an adventure – 94/365

What adventure awaits us if we go through the gate? Are you game? Is the grass always greener on the other side? You can click here for all my Every day photo project photos in one place. I’d love to hear from you. Have you had any good adventures lately? Deb 🙂

Every day is an adventure – 93/365

Always choose the adventure! This is a very shy echidna - actually it's his backside - as he has his snout in the dirt digging for ants to eat. I was riding my bike the other day and noticed this echidna wandering along the fence line.  They are very private animals and tend to roll …

Every day is an adventure – 92/365

Every day is an adventure – 91/365 – Father’s Day

With my dad in 2015

Happy Father's Day! It's Father's Day today so I have posted this lovely photo of us.  I was visiting with my parents recently and we had a few delightful outings together, this being just one of them.  I wish I lived closer to my parents but I know that we can connect very easily and …

Every day is an adventure – 90/365

Every day is as an adventure in my world! How to get the day started on a cold frosty morning - go to the gym! It was 6.30am on Friday morning, the sun was just up, the temperature was only 1 degree with a light frost settling on the grass and the gym was obviously the place …

Every day is an adventure – 89/365

A  snowdrop adventure! These gorgeous delicate little snowdrops are flowering all over the garden at the moment.  They are so delicate and pretty but quite hard to capture. I took a few shots while walking around the garden and these are my favourites. It is amazing how differently you see the world when you actively look …

Flying into Sydney, view from the plane window

A sky high adventure! Flying into Sydney - what a lovely view I had from my little plane. "Both optimists and pessimists contribute to the society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, the pessimist the parachute." — George Bernard Shaw All is going well with my 365 day photo challenge and there always seems to be …

Every day is an adventure – 87/365

This girl can't run! I have been resting my sore calf muscle for two weeks now and it was feeling good, even normal, so I decided to go for a light run this afternoon.  Big mistake!  It hurts again and I had only jogged (very slowly) for 1.5kms after a warm up walk. Not happy! …

Happy days....spring has sprung! It's officially the first day of spring here in the land of Oz - and what a welcome day it is! I love spring and have written about it quite a bit in my blog. I just love the way everything seems to wake up and come alive after the winter.  We …
