If We “Were Having Coffee” Firstly I’d say I was glad to meet you all. I have come via Deb from My Weary Mind and although, since going on the paleo diet around fourteen weeks ago, I only drink one cup of coffee per day there is nothing I like more than a chat with a cup of peppermint tea in hand whilst others have coffee. I breathe in the aroma of it and feel very satisfied and peaceful.
Then I’d tell you that I suddenly realised why we don’t call Autumn Fall in Australia. When I prepared my Silent Sunday photo Fallen Leaf I wanted to call it simply Fall but knew that this would make those in the Northern Hemisphere think it was autumn where here this is spring fall. In the colder parts of Australia leaves fall in preparation for winter hibernation but up here in the north it is the winds that come in Spring that create most of our leaf fall. We know summer is not far away once those winds hit.
I’d also tell you that finally, on the day due, I submitted my chapter for the book. I wasn’t happy with the end of it but boy was I filled with joy that finally (until it comes back to me with comments to address) it was out-of-the-way. I could finally get on with the next thing. I have felt a little buoyed all week as I also received back my exegesis and my supervisor has told me that although I am taking a risk she feels it works. Yeah! This means I can see an end in sight and that is reason to celebrate.
But the most exciting news I would tell you is today we picked up our new puppy, Muffin. Thanks to some advice from Deb we bought a crate and she slept happily in it for the journey home. Bundy welcomed the new puppy but was soon sick of how full on she was . Hopefully they will become good pals. Hopefully Roger and I will cope with a puppy. We had hoped to get another rescue dog that was older but for some reason the rescue agencies ignored our applications and from the local RSPCA all we could get were huge dogs, dogs that have a reputation for being pugnacious or little teeny dogs like chihuahas or yappy ones. Still I am (at the moment ) totally besotted by our new bundle of fur and am looking forward to puppy training sessions and lots of time playing with her.
Thanks for hosting the weekend coffee Diana.
