Hi Everyone!

I've been busy trying to re-learn bookkeeping and accounting so I can deal with last year's taxes (in Australia our financial year ends on the 30th of June). I've tried so many different types of software it's not funny. As well, I'm prep... Read more
Juggling cats, sisters and my kids
Monday, June 03, 2019      6 comments

Saturday, believe it or not, was the first day of Winter here in Australia. It's definitely been chilly enough lately. Today was a blur of activity - one cat that shouldn't be out got out and had to be cajoled off the roof of a shed. Mea... Read more

Yesterday I had lunch with friends - we get together once a month and call it 'Lunch Group'. This month it was a small gathering - just me, Anne and Erik. But that was nice too because we had a leisurely lunch, did some grocery shopping and th... Read more

Last week wasn't an easy one for me. It ended with a trip to the hospital in case I was having a heart attack (my shoulder and neck developed very sudden intense pain that lasted ... well it's still here. Nothing wrong with my heart (thankfull... Read more
Monday Surprises
Monday, May 20, 2019      2 comments

This was definitely not an ordinary Monday. I got up early. An electrician was coming to install a new fan and light in the gym and removing the old one that I didn't trust to run anymore after seeing what the wiring was like a few months ago.... Read more
Finally, the rain has come!
Thursday, May 02, 2019      5 comments

We've been needing rain for months now and last night and today we finally have had plenty but not enough to cause flooding. The grass might turn green for the Winter again! (Yes I know that might sound weird to those of you in the Northern He... Read more

Sunday, April 28, 2019      2 comments

This was a weird week because Monday was a public holiday - Easter Monday - and Thursday was also a public holiday - Anzac Day. So Tuesday and Wednesday I had more tradespeople here working on the outside plumbing pipes. Tuesday the hole by my ... Read more
Back to it!

After last week bit of crazy with adopting a kitty (Moonshine) and having lots of repairs done to the house, I worked on just getting some normality back today even though it's Easter Monday and a holiday here. I did the things I do on Mondays ... Read more
That's one big clump of roots...
Thursday, April 18, 2019      2 comments

First, I'm still deciding on names for my new kitty, but so far Moonspark seems to be winning with me. And with a bit of Spark in her name, I'll always be reminded to keep on Sparking - some feline motivation! Now about the dirt and root... Read more
Lovely Moonshine...

I had planned to wait to adopt until I was back from the states but the RSPCA had a sale because they're so full right now. How could I not step in and help? When I got to the shelter and went to visit all the lovely inmates, this lovely g... Read more
I've had an interesting week...

This past week had some super wonderful highs, some majors lows and lots of in-between. As had been planned, one of my husband's close friends who works with motorcycles and has a bike trailer came and picked up my husband's 1984 Suzuki G... Read more
Busy day at home
Sunday, April 07, 2019      7 comments

I've been out running errands or keeping appointments every day this week. That's pretty unusual for me, and I was feeling a bit worn thin (and not in a good thin way) so I decided today I'd tackle things that were bugging me here at home that ... Read more
Bunches of Milestones today
Tuesday, April 02, 2019      5 comments

Today marks 500 days in a row of meeting my step goal. I made it to 2015 meters on the rowing machine! When I first read that as a daily goal on the SparkTeam page for Indoor / Outdoor Rowers I really thought that was quite impossible. T... Read more
Sunday Beach Highlight
Sunday, March 31, 2019      7 comments

I had a lovely walk by the beach this evening, and I'm not sure what magic made it happen, but when I got to the 10 minute mark where I've been turning around the last few weeks, I found I'd only stopped to take photos and not because my hips we... Read more
Wow!

I thought I'd do about 10 minutes on the rowing machine but ended up doing 20! I'm now feeling muscles I didn't even know existed!!... Read more
