Golden days.


This was the sunrise coming up from the East of Albany this morning. The colours are so beautiful. It’s like a promise that whatever hellish weather may come further on in the day, the sun will still be there behind the clouds waiting.


This photo was taken at the same time just to the left a bit, looking out over Oyster Harbour/Bayonet Head area.  We are very blessed here as we get gorgeous sunrises and gorgeous sunsets too. Will post some sunsets another day.


Here is a lovely shot of a White Tail Carnabys Black Cockatoo that Jason took a few days ago. They love the Eucalyptus gumnut seeds that grow from the trees around our house. Those huge beaks could cut off a finger in no time but look how delicate they are in cracking off the tops of these nuts and using that weird stubby tongue to get at the seeds.

I’ve had the joy of having my youngest daughter staying with us for a week while she recuperates from having her knee reconstructed/re-aligned. Old ballet injury that was better fixed before it got too hard to fix laprascopically (?). They had to cut the patella tendon that holds down her kneecap and screw it back in the correct position and she also had a fissure in the cartilidge behind it. Poor thing has been hobbling around on crutches and we’ve had to help her do the most basic of things we all take for granted.

Thank you google images for the drawing above 😀

I shall be taking her back to Perth tomorrow  😦

I made some lemon curd a few weeks back and have decided to make a gluten free Lemon Curd swirl cheesecake with a jar of it today. I will swirl it into the cheesecake mix just before I pour it into the crumb base. Will post a photo of it 😀

Have a lovely day wherever you may be. May your day be golden too.

Red sky in the morning, Shepherds warning!



This was the sky when I was first up this morning.

The radio announcer was saying the barometer was dropping like a stone and we are in for some gusty old weather. I then went out and chopped a couple of loads of wood to carry me through the next couple of days. I don’t want to be finishing work in the laboratory at 6pm dark time and have to chop some wood then. “Chucky” has to drive to Perth to pick up our youngest daughter who will be having some keyhole knee surgery on the 10th and is coming home (JOY!) to recuperate for a few days. I’ll take her back to Perth on my week off next week having attempted to put some weight on her skinny frame.

Have a lovely safe Tuesday everyone.
