Hello my friends, it's Sunday once again and I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
For those of you in cooler climates I thought a little look at another beach in our lovely area might cheer you and give you hope that your summer will come around again; and for my friends over here in Australia, well, it's rather hot isn't it, and you're quite possibly enjoying the beautiful blue skies and cooling waves at a beach somewhere in your area, even as I type!
Just a few kms. from our home is a lovely little spot called Cosy Corner! The entrance to this beach area provides a lovely relaxing atmosphere with its shady vegetation and barbecues with picnic tables for those who feel inclined, and is a beautiful spot to spend a few hours whiling away a summer's day.
We spent some time there yesterday, and as you can see from the pics, our little Pika just loved her run around in the sand - oh it's okay - any 'mess' left by doggies is picked up and removed by responsible owners, and as it happens we usually exercise her before visiting such places so that we have that situation under control! Well, as much as one can judge the unpredictability of little four-legged-furry-friends!!!
Afterwards we drove into Albany and visited this park which is a favourite haunt of ours.
Those homes are across the street from the park and don't they have a wonderful outlook!
I mentioned last time about new books so here are a couple of pics of those I've been fortunate enough to gather over the past few weeks . . . . most of these have been mentioned at some time or another by you lovely inspiring fellow bloggers and you know how it is - sometimes one just has to have a particular title - and so it goes on . . . . and in fact, the same thing has gone on for so long that my bookcases were crammed full and quite untidy which necessitated the purchase of more - bookcases that is!!!
So Thursday saw J and I go off shopping and how fortunate were we - just the things we wanted were waiting for us so bought on the spot cause we don't waste time, and delivered the next morning! Now you know what I'm going to say don't you: I have spent a lot of time sorting and shuffling and to-ing and fro-ing between two rooms, trying to get all those books sorted in such a way that I'd be able to find what I'm looking for at any given time. It was tiring but oh so enjoyable! I'm quite thrilled to have everything organised again - I have trouble living with mess!
Below I am showing you the original shelves in my little room, now tidied up and displaying my special books and a few of my precious belongings . . . .
. . . . . gifts from family and friends, some recent and others from many moons ago, are displayed here and treasured!
The new bookcases and their contents can wait for their ta-dah moment!
You know that summer time is a wonderful time for fresh fruit, and so after shopping the other day my lovely Hubby J quickly did his thing with arranging the fruit platter - didn't he do a lovely job - it was a pity to spoil it by eating the fruit but I'm afraid that platter has been spoiled somewhat, but oh such juicy tasty morsels, and so so healthy!
And just a wee bit of colour from the garden . . . .
I would like to welcome new followers and also thank you all so much for your sweet messages and comments - I am always so happy to receive them and love the interaction that we blogging friends have amongst ourselves - it's a wonderful world!
I do hope that this post finds you all well and happy and able to spend time doing the things you love to do! I'm wishing you peace and relaxation as well as the very best of health for yourselves and your loved ones!
Lots of love and good cheer!
