Hi. Hope you had a Happy New Year Celebration. I have a very good feeling about 2016. It is giving off good vibes and I’m looking forward to progressing further into it. Hope you feel the same. Anyway, come in, sit down and have a beverage to your choosing. We have coffee, tea or hot chocolate. We don’t have bonnox but I imagine vegemite covered in boiling water may have a similar effect although vegemite, I am told, is an acquired taste.
If we ‘were having coffee” I’d tell you that as expected I did not see the New Year in. We had a lovely meal and wander along the river but arrived home around 9pm. We both went to sleep on the lounge in front of the television (too much food) and dragged ourselves off to bed before 11pm.
If we ‘were having coffee” I’d tell you that my new challenge, Times Past, has commenced. In this challenge I give a prompt to which you respond, link to my post and put what generation you belong to and where the event took place such as rural NSW Australia or New York city USA. I am hoping that if I get enough people responding we will be able to have a snapshot of the changes that have occurred between generations and by location. Above all I hope it is fun thinking of events that you normally probably wouldn’t be bothered thinking of. A new prompt will be given on the 1st of each month and as long as you respond within that month there is no time limit.
If we ‘were having coffee” I’d tell you Muffin continues to grow and become more delightful each day. She comes very quickly when called although occasionally (only occasionally) when she is playing with another dog she chooses not to hear.
The top photo was taken yesterday 15 wks. The bottom from right to left 4 weeks, 6 weeks, and I can’t remember whether it was 8 or 10 weeks but you can see the growth.
If we ‘were having coffee” I’d tell you that on Wednesday Roger’s sister and her husband arrive from Germany to spend a couple of months with us. They are escaping the cold winter for our hot summer so I hope it is not too much of a shock to them. We have stocked up on Wasgij puzzles and hopefully the good weather will continue. We love these puzzles which are a jigsaw puzzle but the picture on the front is a clue only . There are three types mystery, destiny and eyes in the back of your head. You have no idea of the picture that you will be constructing but they are great fun and the creator has a real sense of humour in the funny details he puts into them.
If we ‘were having coffee” I’d tell you that I hope your weeks have been good. I will catch up with you over the next few days but right now I have to go and continue working. I am going to get my thesis finished by the end of January and I have a lot to do if I am going to succeed in this aim and with house guests arriving I have to do as much as possible when I can.
Have a good week everyone. Hope it is good for you. Looking forward to 2016 and getting to know you all better. Thanks to Diana for hosting our coffee mornings
