Contemplation – Week 11: Reading

Hello I love reading! Do you? A few other words I could use to describe myself as a reader are: avid, compulsive, dedicated, devoted, insatiable and voracious. So it's very timely that this week's prompt for desleyjane's Contemplation post is: What's the next book you're going to read? I am part of a book club which meets every month for …

iPhriday – Awesomeness

Mug

It's Phriday - that's awesome! I love Fridays and having an afternoon cup of tea in my favourite mug is an awesome way to start the weekend.  Relax, unwind, breathe...... It doesn't hurt to remind ourselves just how awesome we are either! iPhriday is where we get to share a photo taken with a mobile phone. Thanks to Lisa …

Weekly photo challenge: Fuzzy around the edges – abstract

I clearly remember taking this photo last year - I was experimenting with trying to get closeup shots and it didn't turn out quite as I wanted it to, but I kept it just in case it could be used sometime down the track.  And its time is now! Just in case you can't tell …

Contemplation – Week 8: Who are you going to call?

Hello! I have been busy contemplating desleyjane's latest prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal.   This week the prompt is: Who do you want to talk to right now? I thought of lots of people I'd like to talk to; I've talked with my mum already today, with one of my daughters and messaged the …

Dam!

Day 7 of the Seven Day Nature Challenge Today's final photos for my Seven Days of Nature challenge are from a recent trip to my home town.  We went for a bush walk and came upon the dam looking serene and peaceful. Here's a quick recap for you on how my seven day nature challenge unfolded: …

Sweet orange Zinnias

Day 6 of the Seven Day Nature Challenge Today's photos for my Seven Days of Nature challenge are common old garden variety Zinnias. Perfectly formed and perfectly orange. It took me ages and many practise shots until I was happy with my final photos. Remember I'm only using my iphone! Here's a quick recap for you …

Sunshine on my trees

Early morning sun hits the trees - Day 4 of Seven Day Nature Challenge This is my day 4 entry in the Seven Days of Nature challenge - my first entry was a solitary image of a tree in the paddock, my second photo was an early morning shot (probably one of my favourite photos) and my third photo …

Contemplation – Week 6: six things worth saving

Hello again! While out doing hill sprint intervals this morning at sunrise (I know I'm mad but I am in training so I need to get it done) I contemplated desleyjane's latest prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal.   This week the prompt is: What are you saving for? I'm going to turn this …

Contemplation – Week 5: what smells?

Hello again! I'm participating in desleyjane's blogging challenge Contemplation, where we share our responses to a prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal. This week's prompt is: What can you smell right now? Wild orange, citrus bliss, lemon - these are the lovely smells emanating from my diffuser at the moment.  I have taken to using the diffuser …

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 …

Deselyjane explains the idea behind this challenge: Each week, I answer a prompt from the Kikki.K A Sentence A Day Journal. I’ve been …

Weekly photo challenge: one love, one view

one love.... I realized that the universe is constantly whispering words of love: expressions of pure joy, respect, loyalty, and sacrifice for someone other than ourselves, and instructions on letting go and focusing on what is most important in this world -  so says Anne in this week's one love photo challenge. No matter where we …

Lights, camera….but no action

No entry! Danger!! Authorised personnel only. So say the signs as I approach my usual tracks in the forest for my afternoon walk.  Change of plans with my safety as the main issue! I'm amazed at how much extra light there is already with just a day or two of harvesting action. The tree munchers must …
