The Other Half just finished his holidays. He spent much of that time building a fabulous pergola which we are enjoying far too much. This is only half of it! It is almost impossible to get a good photo of it, but I will spend some time trying over the next week or so.
Sitting out there with the chooks and kitties is my idea of perfection. I’ve not taken a holiday from the blog for a little while now, and I would like to get some posts written ahead of time and scheduled, so I’m going to take a time out. I’ll take the laptop out the back and enjoy the magnificent space we have built. Not sure if it will be one or two weeks, I will see how I go. ;)
We had a super cold front blast through here yesterday and I had to go out and grocery shop in 6 degree weather. I’m sitting here with the gas heater on, a beanie, a hoodie, a rug, and many many other layers. And it seems I totally forgot to blog yesterday like I had planned. My bad! I will catch you up next week. :) Hopefully it will be warmer as it is meant to be spring soon or something.
blog housekeeping, Home, movies
Sometimes you just need to de-clutter and reorganise. This process is happening all over my house at the moment. Everything from getting a new fridge to cleaning out the cupboards to reorganizing my wardrobes and letting go of a lot of clothes that no longer fit me, and welcoming in new clothes, shoes, even underwear that does fit.
Part of this process which came to me as a surprise on a recent Saturday was organising our movies. There are a lot of movies which The Other Half likes which I do not enjoy, and vice versa. We went through the list to organise my movies into two groups – watched, and to be watched.
After the sorting, I now have a directory on the server with over 70 movies that are marked “to be watched”. These are movies I have never seen that somehow got lost in our movies directory. When I would go in there to pick something to watch I would often get tempted by something I have already seen and love, or there would be so much choice I could not choose.
My plan now is to work through these movies one by one. After I watched the first one, I thought maybe I would keep a little list, maybe once a fortnight – or once a week depending on how much watching I get done – and post it here on the blog. I might organise it similarly to how Zandria does her book posts, but maybe with loved, liked, disliked.
Here is a fridge preview – on Monday next week I have a post where you get a closer look.
Movies and maybe some music will be Wednesday posts for a while, going forwards. I am slowly getting my blogging mojo back. ;)
Usually around this time of year I take a couple of weeks to recharge now that Jervis Bay has been returned to the residents, for the most part.. So I’m out for a bit – as in getting out and walking.. It might be three weeks as I have a colonoscopy scheduled as a surprise. See you on the other side!
Now that is my idea of a Christmas tree. :)
Taking a break until Friday!
I just say no to Halloween. It is Un-Australian.
The supermarkets will not miss an opportunity to sell us crap we don’t need, especially sugary crap. PS Coles the fact that you have to tell us which day Halloween is on, perhaps this gives you a clue? ;)
I find trick or treating deeply annoying, as well! Join me and just say NO to Halloween in Australia.
blog housekeeping, travel
I’ve had a lovely little blog holiday, part of which was spent planning our upcoming actual holiday to the Gold Coast, Tamworth, Bathurst, the Blue Mountains and Canberra.
I’m the kind of person who wants to research everything very thoroughly before leaving. If we are going somewhere to eat, I will have already read the menu. For places to stay or visit, I will read the reviews on Tripadvisor and various other places.
I have many stories to type up, for you! SOON!
Just a short time out to recharge my batteries and write some posts.
Sorry guys, I ran out of time this week. Way too much going on here. We will return to the Vincentia path next week!
