Worth a Word Wednesday: Did someone say winter?

Beach on a Winter's day

 Wordless Wednesday - has now been renamed 'Worth a Word' Wednesday simply because I can't stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂 Another beach scene on a winter's day in the southern hemisphere!  A glorious day revisiting haunts of our past and enjoying time with family. This beach is called Currarong and is on the …

Worth a Word Wednesday: Blending in

Sheep in the paddock blending in with the colour of the grass

 Wordless Wednesday - now renamed Worth a Word Wednesday   These sheep have taken on the fashion advice of 'blending in'....they match their surroundings very well. One of the joys of living where I live is seeing the lambs start off as snowy white and gamboling all over the paddock, then growing older and losing their …

Worth a Word Wednesday: What a wonderful world!

Interesting cloud formation over Tumbarumba

 Wordless Wednesday - now renamed Worth a Word Wednesday Keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds!

Worth a Word Wednesday: the tracks of my life

Forest tracks on a winter's day in Tumbarumba

 Wordless Wednesday - winter and the tracks of my life No more 'jealousy/wish you were here' shots of beaches from me for the moment, I'm back home into full-on winter mode - it's wet, grey, cold and just a tad miserable outside. These tracks are throughout the forest at the rear of our property and over …

Wordless Wednesday: 28 June 2017

Looking up through the trees

 Wordless Wednesday - winter not winter While staying with my mother, I attended her weekly exercise class in the park.

It was a beautiful sight and so I snapped a pic.  I'm good at multitasking 😊 Wordless Wednesday....with some …

iPhriday – fun on the tractor

It's Phriday - tractor fun After a busy week at work and weeks of wet, cold days complete with snow (see my Wordless Wednesday post if you don't believe me) it was nice to come home today to a sunny, but still chilly, afternoon. My husband has been on school holidays, working on jobs around the …

iPhriday – Winter has arrived

Winter tree

It's Phriday - winter is here! Last week I enjoyed a few quiet days at home and the weather was just perfect for it. It was foggy, wet, cold, miserable and grey and I loved it! I lay in front of the fire, I read a book, I went sploshing in the rain, I watched …

OWPC – Snow and flip flops!

The subject of snow is quite timely for me - just last week we had snow falling in our neck of the woods (see Day 60 and Day 61) and this week I'm up north visiting my parents and the sun is warm and the temperatures are almost tropical. What a difference a week makes.  …

Changing seasons 07 – winter is hanging on

Magnolia

Winter is still with us down here in the land of Oz but I can see spring on the horizon. Our garden is quite bare at first glance but when you look a bit closer there is still life and new beginnings.  I think that is the best thing about this monthly challenge it makes …
