Everyday life . . . in photos
My perfect scene in life!! If only I could do it all day long!!
Painting by Vladimir Volegov
I have been on extended leave (6 weeks - I took leave that is called Long Service Leave in Australia) and these are some of the photos I took during my time at home. I do hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!
Here is one of our favourite spots to sit, its cool, peaceful and quite serene among all the trees. Our garden is full of trees, including a very large gum tree that provides shade and a sanctuary for the many birds that visit or live among the branches. The other day I was sitting quietly reading, enjoying my mug of tea when the birds decided it was time to all "talk" at once - what a noise they made, Charlie (the cat) thought it was so exciting to see so many birds around - fortunately they were all very big birds and she can't catch them.
|More little things in the garden. My husband and I like to add little things of interest to our garden, usually hidden in places you least expect.|
|Our garden isn't full of flowers at present, its perhaps more rustic and wild than a cottage garden - but these Agapanthus do add colour in the summer months.|
|To add to my quirkiness what do you think of the decor artwork above the light-switch? I love it and plan to get a few more to put around the house.|
Did you think you could look at all these photos and not see one of Ruby!! She just loves baskets and boxes and if you put one on the floor she is bound to climb in. I am told its a cat thing!
|I have had this free pattern for ages and never got around to making it, but I decided it was time to "bit the bullet" and give it a go. It isn't hard to make and I am happy with the results however it does need sleeves which I struggled to add (or more correctly, I need sleeves) But with a cardigan it looks very nice. Here is the pattern if you want to give it a go: LINK. If you visit Pinterest you will find many variations to this pattern. I have made two of these thus far, I wore the green and pink one on Christmas Dat.|
|I think I will end with another one of Vladimir Volegov's paintings of a woman reading. This is a favourite painting of mine, perhaps because I do love the dress and its colour and she is doing something I love - yes, reading.|
