I fell in love with the painting below and cried at the thought of being unable to gaze upon it again.
My love gave up a few things he had so he could surprise me with this beautiful painting.
Admiring this gorgeous piece of art and hugging love even closer to my heart is now a daily ritual for me. Reminds me of how lucky I am. Even when I’m flat out and can’t move, back injuries heal so slowly!
Although much of our home is new, most of it is still exactly the same…just with sturdy floors, a leak proof roof and hydronic heating! Our girl will turn 100 yrs old in a few years and she is still very much herself, just refreshed. Hard to believe it’s now the end of Summer and we are looking forward to being warm and cosy in our home this Winter (last Winter was FREEZING as we started renovations in bitter weather). A few pics below.
I look forward to planting up the garden in late Winter, our garden isn’t complete without our old vegie garden. Still, the little planter is doing quite well! I’ve made endless jars of pesto with the crazy basil of both purple and emerald varieties.
In January we visited Heron Island – it was like stepping into a David Attenborough (my hero) documentary…
We swam with sharks, rays, turtles, schools of fish…watched baby turtles erupt from the sand at our feet and mumma turtles come to shore to lay at night. Truly a beautiful place.
