Lunchtime Daydreams

Today during my lunch break I went and lay on the grass under a tree and daydreamed for a while. I really need to do it more often.

A Eureka Moment

Waiting for that Eureka moment when the light bulb goes on and everything thing clicks. For now I'll have to be content with this Eureka instead.

Aloe Vera

We're currently in the process of moving house which is exhausting. Tonight we moved all the plants and I found my aloe vera has had so many babies over the past years that I have more than I could possibly use. I put these spare pots out on the front fence with this sign and within an hour or so they were gone. I'm glad that they went with people who wanted them, I hope they enjoy them.

Raining, raining, raining

We have been getting crazy weather this week. Hot and wet and quite tropical which is not like Melbourne. I can't complain though considering Brisbane is currently under water and a lot of Queenland is flooded.

Local Cider

I'm in the country this weekend for a friend's wedding and the perfect Friday afternoon is a local cider with good mates. The cider was delicious too.

I almost walked into this web this morning as it was right outside our back door. The spiders are so busy at the moment there seem to be webs everywhere.

Street Art Wednesday

I found this guy down a side street. Funny that it's quite near where I live yet I've never walked down there. It was a good surprise to find this.

Sick Day

I'm home today, not feeling great. It's shame on such a beautiful day to spend it mainly in bed but I did manage to get to the park and read a book for a while.

I have decided to give away my "Five Things" lists for 2011, it's time for a change. Instead I thought that on a Monday I might share with you quotes that I love. I mean, who doesn't need some inspiration on a Monday?
Anyway as an aside, last year I was inspired by Susannah to chose a word for my year and 2010's word was FOCUS. It served me well and, excuse the pun, helped me to stay focussed on what really mattered to me. As a result I am going to chose a word again for 2011 and this year I have chosen BELIEVE. I want to practice believing in my dreams, believing in possibility and most of all believing in myself.
So my fist quote I want to share with you is one I read recently on Karen's blog....

"Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe."

~ Gail Devers

I aim to live by this in 2011. I hope you'll stick around and see how I go.
