a heavy week, bring on a new one
Gosh that was a heavy week, something major happened (good, bad, exhausting, fantastic) every single day, i'm glad it's done & dusted, as this week is going to be spectacular, for no other reason than it's a new one filled with promise.
Today is Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, celebrating the end of World War I. This is an image of allied soldiers, taken in France on 11.11.1918 (in the Australian War Memorial.) I hope they knew we'd be remembering & appreciating their efforts & incredible sacrifices with our hearts, minds & souls, forever!!
I made a mobile for our bedroom this week, yes i'm 37 but i had these ceramic clouds to use, somehow. Then i was day dreaming, looking at some Christmas decorations on my desk . . . rain drops . . . the penny dropped & da dah, i created some rain clouds. They fit in perfectly with my metal sign on the wall. The mobile was near impossible to photograph but the way the shadows landed created an interesting effect.
Now all our hens are laying, we have an abundance of eggs each day, which is fantastic, so we're making ice-cream & baking up a storm, like tonight i made lemon meringue pies, six individual ones. Plus we have some cartons to share with my husband's soldiers.
I've finally deleted all the images off my phone & filed them on my desk top. This was one of the last from Floriade, pretty non?? I'm slowly working my way around the iPhone, all the functions, it's fabulous. I also sorted out my InBox, felt like all the weight in the world was lifted off my shoulders.
I put a dent in the Christmas shopping last week, felt like i hadn't been to my favourite stores in ages. I couldn't resist this neon pink tree, nice contrast against the afternoon sky on Friday.
Wishing you all lovely weeks filled with wonderful opportunities & happiness. I have a few giveaways live (listed on the right) & more launching soon. Follow & stay tuned, good luck, love Posie
