Here I Am Again ... Finally ....

Good morning, everyone ... it sure has been awhile !!

I apologise profusely for not being around, but work and a long weekend has kept me away.

So .... how have you all been ?? I will be dropping by all your blogs in the next day or two ... gosh, you have been mega busy, judging by all the posts on my Google Reader that are waiting for me to read LOL

As for me ... well, as I said, I have been working 2 days a week lately ... just enough, without being too much !! Also, last weekend was a long weekend here (Queens Birthday weekend), and we left on Friday, returning home Monday afternoon. We went to our caravan at Bonnie Doon (of course), and had a lovely time.

The weather was lovely ... blue skies and sunshine (although quite cool ... well, it is Winter !!). The nights were very cold ... thank goodness for heating.

We didn't do much, other than chat with our friends. There was a PJ party on the Saturday night ... I'd bought the cutest flanelette PJs ... bright green with bright pink pussy cats all over them (how original !!). It was fun, lots of dancing (oh, and drinking ... hmmm !!), and a great night.

On the Sunday, we went for a 4WD in the Strathbogie Ranges ... it was nice up there, with lots of lovely views. Shame, though ... I didn't go mad with the camera at all this weekend.

However, here are some photos that I would like to share with you ...

The photo above is a view across the lake (without water, still), from the deck of our site ... the cloud hadn't lifted ... it was quite foggy earlier.

Above ... another one from our deck.

The photo above is of some trees on our drive through the Strathbogies ... check out the sky .. it was a lovely day.

Above ... discovered this fungus thingy growing ... they were all over the place. From a distance, they looked like little UFO's jammed in the tree trunk !


This one, above, is just a small portion of all the rocks that are located around the Strathbogies.

Anyway, that was just a small sample of my weekend.

Hope your week has been going well.

I am off shortly to have lunch with Val and Gina, fellow Melbournian bloggers. We will be visiting a lovely cafe in Eltham, which is also part bookshop, cd shop, giftshow ... should be wonderful. I'll let you know later, how it goes.

Enjoy the remainder of the week, and the upcoming weekend.

Take care,
