some weeks are just freshly squeezed fantasticalness
Another week done & dusted as the year races towards the finish line. This year has been full on, with my husband in Afghanistan for the first half, countless children's activities & slowly closing down my business. Wrapping up this year is tying up a lot of loose ends on a long list.
A big ticket item on that list was the 12-month-check-up at the optometrist to see if this far sighted girl needed to continue wearing glasses to read. She literally burst out of the chair with the news that her eyes have adjusted & she no longer requires them. After following the optometrist's instructions on when to wear them & why, it has totally paid off.
Mid week i took my high schooler to a VIP Country Road soiree in the city, it was lovely to have personal shoppers & spy the new range. We picked up new coloured jeans, Summer tops & a pair of pretty yellow stitched linen pillow cases. Yellow = happiness.
In Canberra, we have a lot of logging, hay & cattle trucks passing through this regional city (albeit, the nation's capital!!) I posted this image on Instagram this morning & sparked quite the interested debate on logging.
Summer to me is platters & lunch boxes loaded up with watermelon. All 4 of our children were born in the tropics, so this brings happy memories of our wonderful life in Darwin. I know we eat watermelon ALL over Australia, however, mangoes, watermelon, pineapple (& frangipanis) just scream Darwin to us.
Often Fridays find me madly juicing up all the fruit left in the house before the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings!! Apples, pears, carrots, tomatoes (we'd eaten all the celery) with some chia seeds, delicious!!
Other fantasticalness things this week include . . . discovering our chickens have been wandering into our German Shepherd's yard & they all get along swimmingly . . . i started swimming . . . i saw Sky Fall . . . a delicious lunch with my husband . . . pavlova triumph . . . we planned a fun Christmas party . . . i've been running up a storm . . . i'm still losing weight . . . some surprise gifts from lovely friends . . . great shopping & just a general overwhelming feeling of happiness.
Gosh i'm loving the colours in my photographs lately. Thank you iPhone 5, you make me so happy. Have fantasticalness weekends folks & don't forget all the great giveaways currently on the blog. Love Posie
