Very happy with the mailman today! Hopefully this will inspire me to write more!!!

I promised myself ONE camera lens before I finish paid work... now the hard part is deciding which one I really want ;)
Do I go a macro...
or a 35mm...
perhaps the 28mm...
then the wide angle lens appeal a little too...
Too many to choose from, maybe I shouldn't be leaving work just yet ;)
It's Sunday and today (being a boat widow day) means that I got the time to get out during Miss 3's naptime to get my scavenger items! Sunshine Shots - a rarity!!!
I haven't had a chance to get out & collect the fallen passionfruit of late and those fallen are now starting to decay (and be eaten by birds ;)
2. Groups of 3
I love how my lime tree grows it's fruit in groups of three (yes these are LIMES! huge aren't they?)
4. Things that make you go hmmm....
5. Me Time
Books, Music, Crochet, Coffee and Chocolate! Good fun ME time!
A day at the craft fair yesterday and my parents purchased this set of cool inks for my daughter! The idea is you clip the pen onto this blowing device( on an angle) then blow really hard while moving slowly. It gives a really cool paint splatter effect! Cool fun!
You can also use the many stencils included or go back and colour over with a magic white pen that makes the original colour go a different colour!
The toddler and I spent the morning playing, that's all her work on the right hand side, I helped with the left side!
Although I took this photo on Monday morning, I completely ran out of time to actually submit it to the weekly competition... oh well, I'm still posting it here because I love how vibrant it looks!
Word: The Letter L
This is my daughters daycare lunch (yes this was a good, after shopping day ;) they have recently introduced 'brain break' where they have to have healthy snacks. Apples, cheese and crackers, yoghurt, fruit. Luckily I had already been packing these ;)
This is a nightly (and every morning) occurence at our place! The child sits and eats dinner (pretending to be) unaware of a certain dog sitting patiently waiting his 5th meal of the day ;)
Until I leave my job later this year... the crafting in this household is at a bare minimum. I have been keeping the motto "small squares" as I know eventually small squares will become big squares. It seems to be working, my crochet "bette" is flowing along nicely. I've also pulled out my old Wreck this journal and have started Wrecking once again.
Dreaming of the next 2 months floating by FAST so I can get stuck into all things Crafty!!!
My girl and I have been going on adventures together and today was an adventure day! We decided on the beach and realised last minute that we weren't exactly dressed appropriately as we were heading to the shops after our adventure. But we had FUN and that was the main thing. The best thing about these types of days, is lots of photos and I have been playing around with iPhoto as well as Picnik. I am still undecided as to what program I want to eventually run (I figure I will eventually get the full Adobe Suite as I can utilise it for work too) but for the time being, I'm having fun playing with the post editing and though I do much prefer all natural photos ~ I'm learning that sometimes that totally overexposed photo can be tweaked into something sort of cool!
Which one do you like? Of course I may be biased - I think the model is pretty cute, so they are all firm favs!!
The girl and I went on another adventure today... this time to the beach on Bribie Island! There were a fair few people there, so we took a walk and played on a stretch of beach that had no-one nearby!
Loving our Adventure days!
This is the delightful grin I come home to each day. Monday she was playing dress ups and was using one of my fabrics as her scarf (give the girl 100 toys and she keeps coming back to my fabric stash... what can I say ~ she's her mothers daughter!)
Well it's that time again, but I am a day late for this weeks Scavenger Hunt (though my photos were all done and uploaded on Sunday... I just ran out of time blogging and linking them up yesterday!)
1. Vanishing Point
This one was easy! My Vanishing point is a Sunday afternoon after 5pm... generally the time I realise that I haven't finished my photos for the scavenger Hunt :o
2. Square Crop
I wasn't sure how to interpret this, so I took a photo of one of my beautiful red flowers and did square crop on her ;)
Look what I found under this leaf in the vegetable garden, new little lettuce shoots, yummy!
4. Welcome to the Jungle
Sunday afternoon "honey do you have a Guns and Roses shirt?" Nah, I used to have one. Damn... next best thing was the jungle in the garden ~ it's pretty overgrown and scary, not game to go weeding in there - especially as hubby had a little visitor earlier today of the green tree snake family - ick!
This was my calming point of the week. 10 minutes spent sitting on a towel on the back patio as the sun came up through the trees. Sleeping Child. Sleeping Dog. Sleeping Husband (just a shame about the noise from the highway :( )
