Welcome to a warm, windy Noosaville morning. Our normal coffee stop is closed for the day so we were forced to drink elsewhere but now coffee is ready for serving at our house if you care to drop in. You’ll be welcomed by all of us, including our four legged family members.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that it is coming to the end of BILS and SILS Australian stay. Two months has gone so quickly and it has been so much fun having them as they looked after themselves most days riding to the beach or to the river, up the hill to the Civic or catching the bus to the beaches to the south. They were perfect guests considering my preoccupation with getting my work done. We also did some trips and I always enjoy these. We had our last Friday lunch with them at Alexandra Headland at a place where I always feel as though I too am on holiday.
With new proprietors I loved the fun menu they had prepared.
We then put BILS and SILS on the walking track to Mooloolabah along the beach and we drove and parked my Mum on a park bench in the shade and walked back and met them half way. The weather was perfect for a wander but possibly still too hot for those used to German temperatures.
Our last Wasgij has been completed.What can the parson see? Was the question arising from the picture on the front cover
Last night we went to a play ‘Australia Day’. It was very funny and full of social messages that had impact because of the brilliant way they were presented. It made me think this morning of the impact of Harriet Beecher Stowe and Harper Lee. The overarching message however was that we are all the same and a line by the son of a Vietnamese boat person was that it is not what is said but how you deal with it that matters. I have always felt that this is very true. The company is touring regional Australia with the play and if it comes to a theatre near you I really would highly recommend it.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that Muffin had her first hair cut this week. She no longer looks like a puppy but an adolescent. When I picked her up from the groomer she looked like a toy dog that should be wound up.
I hardly recognised her but later at home and then today after our morning walk she was unmistakeably Muffin.
Bundy is doing well on his new medecines and we are cautiously hopeful that this will continue.
Contributions to Times Past are still being taken with a new prompt due out on the 1st March.
So how has your week been? What have you been up to? Is it getting warmer for those of you in winter? Thanks to Diana who hosts our weekend coffee. Get over there and see if you can come up with a name for her new little critter. I am hopeless at naming things and once had a pair of cats called big cat and little cat. Whilst you are there you can check out others who share coffee.
