Back On The Wagon.

Well readers its been a crazy week.
My poor computer has been reformatted and seems to be running ok so fingers crossed things are fixed now.
In some brief point forms I will run through the week that was…

* Started week 3 of the cold/flu/chest/throat/sinus infection that wouldn’t go away. Almost over it now thankfully.
* Was picked to take part in 612ABC radios Swapper program. I am a part of the Trim Tims (Tim Cox from the drive program) along with 12 other people. We are all trying to lose the most amount of cm’s from our waists over 12 weeks but I will go into this tomorrow night.
* I actually worked out Twitter! Yes after having an account for what seems like forever I am finally using it and getting it. Oh I am ElizabethWB if you are interested.
* Decided to go vegetarian for (at least) a week. Have been getting a lot of great information from some wonderful ladies and while I am not sure I could ever completely stop eating animal products we will certainly be cutting down and being very selective about what we eat (The Husband is more than happy with this since before me he was a vegetarian)
* I have started a daily Mount Mee photo posting. I am looking at it as a way of sharing the different views, weather, beauty and just life on the mountain. Currently its only on instagram and twitter but may possibly move it to either here or facebook depending on if people are interested.
* The chickens (well one of them) are laying daily!
* I attended the dawn service on ANZAC day on Wednesday. As always it was a moving morning, cold and beautiful.

In other news… I think I need a change, a move, something. I just dont know what.
Am feeling not at ease and not sure why. Well I lie, I know why but I dont know how to fix or change it.

So until tomorrow night….

Snoozing for Sanity

Last week I was feeling… Off.
By Friday the head was killing me and ended up leaving work about lunch time and heading towards the city so that I could pick The Husband up after he finished work (and have a snooze on the beds)
Before going to his work though I decided that I needed fresh air, sun shine and just some calm… So I stopped off at New Farm park for a bit.
It really is lovely there, lots of people around but not in the annoying way and I actually fell asleep for about 30mins or so between the roses. When I woke up other than feeling like a bit of a dick, my head ache had finally gone and I was feeling wonderfully relaxed.
Decided I should make the most of my time there as well so I grabbed the camera out of the car and went for a short wander…
This is what I managed to capture.

I think that it was a very worthwhile afternoon for both my health, sanity and photos.

Day 8 is a bad bad habit

So I didnt know what habit to do as my bad habit since to be honestย I do have a fair few. A visit to OfficeWorks made me decide on which bad habit I would pick. I promise that I was only going there to check out the prices of printers, ink etc for a business idea that I have and that I didnt mean to buy things, but in my defence it was only about $20 worth and I needed all of it, especially the camera cleaner!

Because I am freezing and want to curl back up under my blanket here is my next challenge photo.

Day 8 – A Bad Habit

Day 3: Clouds on a Cloudless day!

So wake up this morning and what do you know… perfect blue sky and not a cloud in it! Of course it was like that because today I needed to get a photo of clouds. I though maybe some might roll in tonight and I could get some cloud/moon shots but of course not (oh and there was no moon either)
So this is my night shot where I was thinking I could find a cloud.
Let me see who can see the constellation I have managed to capture…

So back on the cloud hunt…
I did get a very dodgy one on the way to get some dinner after work through the windscreen at the speck of clouds that we did have.

However in an attempt to create some clouds to make up with the poor display today I gathered the sick and dying man flu husband to assist me. So without further delay let me present my challenge photo.

Day 3 – Clouds

How are the other challenge photographers going?
