If you dare

Crack me up, you know your day is just gonna be fabulous when it starts like this

Can you see it, I don’t know if I have just created a new way of making coffee? Is this even a thing? The suns not even up yet, really?

You may or may not want to join me for coffee this morning, I doubt tea will go any better. If you ever visit, it’s probably safer to make your own cuppa at this point. hahahahaha

Anywhoo, I wondered the other day as I watched the wild ducks fly into the dam & all the different colour & sized feathered sky frolickers, flitting & swooping & gliding about the place; Do they ever play airplanes? It was stunning & hilarious to watch, all the birds zooming around & suddenly my imagination just went with it. There was a whole repertoire of vroom, wheee, bang, plop, screeching brakes “Look out Russel I’m coming in for landing”!. A young Pheasant Coucal fell off the banana tree(the large leaf not as sturdy as it thought). Mum & I having a great old giggle. Honestly it is so fun.

mmmm & I wonder why I put milk in the coffee grounds.

Here’s the latest project pretty much completed, but first! it has been raining like, really well, for the last couple of months, check out the garden.

Lets have a peek out the back

The ride on mower decided there is such a thing as too much greenery & blew both belts, poor Betty. So Sam scythe & Susie sickle mower to the rescue.

Out the front

Lets go inside for a moment

Really Mum inside?

I love French renaissance, provincial anything grand & of course way beyond the average budget. Here goes…my thrifty compromise, interpretation?

I hope you all, my wonderful blogger family, can do what brings you joy, (hopefully not to stress out the four legged family members, lol) & thankyou for being you.

No animals were harmed during the making of this project. Sticks were tossed that Walter fetched with great enthusiasm even a swim in the dam was included for extra fun.

  2. That bed head idea looks amazing Linda! What a flashy bedroom now! Like something I would see on Home Design shows.
    I was wondering how you are given the big wet is headed down south? Did you survive okay?
    Maybe that is why you were disrupted with your morning cuppa? I couldn’t make out what was wrong from the photo – too dark on my screen and I thought there may have been a frog in there??!! Lol.. glad it was only milk!
    Take care.

    1. Hi neighbour, thankyou I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to show a ladies bedroom, but I was just so excited. Mum often says the garden & house should be on a home show. Although at the moment there are tools scattered around the house as I am renovating. Such fun. I have been thinking of you with all this rain. We had it the last 3 days straight non stop. a few bridges closed nothing out of the ordinary for us & a bit of rain. Really feel for the people of Lismore. How did you all fare with the wet.


      1. We were high and dry but were a bit stuck in for a while. No dramas though. The half constructed lake was close to overflowing as they hadn’t finished the overflow outlets to the sea. The sun is shinging now.

  3. Hi, Your climate is clearly a whole lot wetter than here in Central Victoria. The sky tap was turned off in early summer but now, I am enjoying the novelty of sitting here listening to the sound of gentle rain falling. I admired the abundance of your passion fruit vine.

    1. We don’t often get to enjoy this much greenery. I am so glad you have gotten some rain it is a comforting sound. I so wish we could share our abundance with you,(I make cordial & ice cream topping) we have 2 vines & I found another one that has popped up in the vegie patch, lol. I hope it continues to rain just the right amount for you. Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
