SUMMERTIME THOUGHTS

I have had a few coloured silhouettes this week with the Sun blazing as bushfires burn. I saw whales, as well. Off the Beach on my birthday.

THE YAAN : I am seriously thinking  that its time to opt out of all the challenges I have been involved in for the last year or two. I have truly lost the feeling sitting on the eBENCH and enjoying myself. Each week I am caught up in directed plans and posts and I think they may have served their purpose for now. I shall sit myself down on the eBENCH and do some more Yaaning and some more pondering. I had my 2nd swim of the season today. Come on Summertime.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : HAPPY. PART 1.

MADELINE’S DINOSAUR.

I’ve used my Madeline’s dinosaur as placeholder while I take a look at the other bloggers. I work my posts through Windows Live Writer and haven’t yet found a way to use the photo galleries on it. It looks like I will be driven to using WordPress own unwieldy post format but first I shall take a look at what makes the other people happy. The Dinosaur makes me happy because it is my granddaughter’s winning entry in a competition for the Children’s Hospital and will be hung in a regional hospital. It brought her to Sydney for a visit and a couple of days of city life. Her Dad made sure she visited the Museum and met a reconstructed dinosaur at full scale.

OTHER HAPPY BLOGGERS – WITH GALLERIES.
