I'm Still Here ...

Hi Everyone,

It has been another busy few weeks, which has left me little time to blog, again !!

We went away last weekend ... Friday afternoon until Tuesday evening. It was lovely ... we just went to our caravan at Bonnie Doon ... plenty of people to catch up with, and things to do. It is always nice, just to get away ... no matter where !!

It actually rained alot over the weekend ... Saturday afternoon, through to Sunday late. It was great, and very much needed.

We had friends come by for a visit on Sunday, they travelled from Kyabram, over near Shepparton, to Bonnie Doon (where we were). Didn't think they would end up coming after all, due to the torrential rain. They have just returned from 7 months travelling around this beautiful country of Australia ... lucky ducks ... that's something we hope to do sometime. It was rather cold, with the wind and rain, so we spent the day inside, looking through their photos, watching some photo dvd's of ours, and talking and eating. A perfectly wonderful day.

We went to the Mansfield Races on Tuesday afternoon, for a few hours. It was my cousins silver wedding anniversary, and they had hired a private marquee for the day. It was great fun, and we caught up with some friends there. Didn't win on the horses, though ... unfortunately ... although we only managed to spend $20 ... big spenders, that we are LOL.

I've been working Monday, Wednesday and often Fridays as well. The remainder of the week is full of chores and catching up with people. You know, there are still things on this wonderful new computer I haven't had time to explore ... can you believe that !?!?!

The upcoming weekend is fairly busy again ... I think the "silly season" has come early here !! I hope to have time to blog sometime this century LOL.

I just want to wish everyone a great weekend ... hope you get to spend lots of time with loved ones ... there is nothing nicer.

Catch up again as soon as I am able.

Take care, and big hugs to you all,

Hi Connie, good to hear you got some rain, we did too but not into the dams damn it.

Hi Connie. What a lovely time you had by the sound of it. Glad you got the rain, too. We've had quite a bit over the last couple of days, too. Yay!

Take care

fall is in full bloom here and the weather is 35-45F and frost on the windows in the morning.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying life.


Stinkypaw said...

Don't let work get in the way of you enjoying life!

That's what we should all be doing!

Have a great weekend! =^..^=

Just stopped by to check on you. So glad you are okay. Sounds like you are keeping yourself very busy. Take care of yourself and don't work to hard.

When I see so many lovely cats in one blog, I'm reminded of the movie
"Pink Panther" and the theme song,
"What's new, pussy cat...?"

Hope you'll continue with your poetry writing, especially if you have the skills & talents for it.

I now blog on daily motivational poems, etc in

Like Diane I am coming over to wish your a Happy Birthday! I see she is signed in on the 15th of the month. I don't know which day is correct but here in the US it is still the 14th. At least I guess we will not be late with our greetings.

Good Morning Connie,
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to you!!!!! I am coming over here by way of Green Eyes. She sent me over to help you celebrate. I just love how she wished you a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY". It is just too cute. I don't really know what day it is here where you are at, but it is November 15th here. If I'm early, well then, that is a good thing. LOL. At least I won't be late. I have my own blog called Karen's Korner. If you have the time sometime, you can stop by. I always like meeting new friends. Well take care my friend and have a great Thursday and "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" again.

That rain will be much appreciated I'm sure. we've been hearing about the dire situation in Australia as far as hot, dry weather is concerned. Not good news as bushfire season approaches.
