It Goes On

I guess it’s a little odd to title my post and find an image that mirrors my blog name however I’m living this right now. I’ve had to teach myself once again that each day is a new day and that I am not a failure if I don’t reach the ideals that I set for myself. Continue reading

I have a dream…

I’ve had it for a while.  The dream I mean.
You know the one? The dream of writing a book.
The words are there inside me, tumbling over and over in my mind. It’s like a tiny little alien predator just waiting to break forth some days.
I’ve wavered about what to write. I’ve picked up one idea, examined it and then discarded it for another. I have jotted ideas and notes in notebooks laying all over the house but struggle to find EXACTLY what it is that I want to share with the world. Continue reading

Would you Rather

Miss Joey from joeyfullystated answered a challenge/interview the other day about her reading. She chose not to nominate anyone to carry it on, however left it open to those of us who haven’t done a blog post in like, forever wish to answer the same questions to do so.
I figured it was a perfect way to get myself somewhat back into this blogging gig. (I truly can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last post). So here goes….. Continue reading

One of those days

I read this humorous post the other day and thought “Nah. That’s not me”. However I have to admit today that I’ve had a day that has been very much like this so far. Well to a certain extent. I have stopped and actually finished a few things as I flitted from place to place although you wouldn’t know it to look at the house. Continue reading

Yowie Hunters

I have a guilty secret. I love watching Animal Planet. In particular I love watching Mountain Monsters and Finding Bigfoot. I have to admit that watching Mountain Monsters is more for the entertainment value than from a desire to see whether creatures of folklore actually exist. Anyone who has managed to sit through a whole hour of this show would have to agree that it is pure side-splitting comedy….Or, that could be just me and my warped sense of humour. However, I also enjoy Finding Bigfoot even if it has copped it’s share of bad press as well. So imagine my delight when channel surfing a couple of days ago and I came across the Finding Bigfoot ‘Down Under’ episode.  Continue reading

Are cats psychic or just empathetic?

I’m sure there are many of you who read the title and either scoffed or laughed.
After all, there are many memes around that laud the ability of a cat to snub their noses at the world. I believe words such as ‘opportunist’ and ‘narcissistic’ have been used to describe the more negative aspects of our pets.
There is no doubt that cats have a very different outlook on life than we do. However…. Continue reading

Stay safe coastal Queensland

As I write this, Tropical Cyclone Marcia has just crossed the coast of Queensland.
Where I am, it is safe. By the time it reaches us, it will have blown out and we will only have some strong wind gusts and heavy rain.
It’s already raining here and has been most of the night however.

I have friends in the cyclone’s path and I am concerned for their safety though. Schools have been closed and people are being evacuated in the immediate storm path. Our area does suffer from localised flooding so we are being told to prepare. Thankfully, we live on the side of a hill and the Teen’s school texted me this morning to advise that they are still open today.
In other news, I am well. Extremely busy and I have the best intentions to write a blog post and then life happens. I have many comments on my last post to answer however this morning, I have other commitments so will get to answering them when I can. Perhaps later this afternoon or possibly tomorrow.
We have to travel into Brisbane in this rain this morning. I’m not looking forward to it but I’m pleased that the Garden Gnome is an excellent driver.
We should be home before the worst of the weather arrives.

Funny how the world is in extremes right now isn’t it? I’m thinking of all of you in the Northern Hemisphere who are snowbound whilst we are anticipating flooding.

Take care all. Be safe.
Many blessings.
