What I see when I look out my window: Brown grass that crunches under foot (could do with some rain) weeds (could do with a gardener!) beautiful wrens (these beautiful wrens are fascinated by seeing themselves in the mirror of my car, this explains the poop in the side of my car...) double bar finches… Continue reading Eye Spy
Well, I have been out and about since about 6.30 this morning. Busy busy busy. It is such a beautiful day today. Hopefully the hottest days of summer are over. The skies are clear and there was a very slight chill in the air at 6ish. Welcomed relief. Went for a short walk with the… Continue reading Early Start
Some Very Active Summer Storms
Around 7000 lightning strikes in the storm that just went through. I was looking out the lounge room window when I saw a lightning strike about 500m away. Very impressive. This strike was followed by two others in almost the same place. Followed closely by massive thunder. Just such a crazy storm. Stradbroke Island has… Continue reading Some Very Active Summer Storms
Australia is Melting…
Well it just hit 45 degrees celcius...for those of you that don't use celcius, that would be 113!! Ouch. The roads are literally melting too. I had to take a trip to the shops earlier and there are some wacky clouds forming on the range (Great Dividing Range) hopefully no more hail though. And,… Continue reading Australia is Melting…
I just love these beautiful posters. Such great style. So uniquely Australian.

Yesterday I was saying goodbye to my little family, in the front yard, and just across our little street I… Continue reading Well Ya Don’t See That Everyday…

Where Are My Kangaroos?
So disappointed this morning 😦 Where are my kangaroos? My big mob of roos? Maybe it was just a little chilly for them this morning. Every morning, on the school run, we drive past a big mob of roos. Probably about 40 or 50ish. I drive down the hill and off to the right is… Continue reading Where Are My Kangaroos?
Here comes another one…
Out of one storm and into another. 🙂

And Happy Easter to you, that is if you believe in Easter...and if you don't, have a happy and relaxing Sunday xxx In Oz we have chocolate bilbies available for Easter. Because the bilby… Continue reading Chocolate Bilby for Easter?
“If not now, when?”
So I don't have any cute little toddlers to take photos of; I have found it quite difficult to get an 18 year old and a 15 year old to participate in cute finger painting photos for my blog. Really? Yes Really. And I don't have an abnormally fantastic and shabby chic kinda house; one… Continue reading “If not now, when?”
