And aside from stuffing myself with silly with dumplings, I have
GORGEOUS roses from Amanda
A Moto G from my parents *squees*
Expect much better photos from now on! Much much better….
Arrrr me kitties… Adding this to my therapy wishlist!
Catching up with some girls from highschool for an update, one brought me some gorgeous flowers, with a Star of David fashioned out of bamboo and stuck inside by the florist. Are these for Hannukah?
I’ve just spent a couple of days in psych care at the hospital.
Yeah, I was a bit of a risk.
Putting things in place etc.
AND I GOT FOOD PHOTOS FOR YOU:
Yeah, I ate gluten this few days. I lived.
And check out all the plastic cutlery and crockery. Yep, no sharps in PECC. (the flowers are also in a ‘vase’ fashioned from an isowipes container)
Plans from here?
Take care of myself.
Oh and figure out where I want to live. Yeah, Rish and I kinda ‘separated’, too.
Just short of 15 years.
To see if that helps.
Careful what you wish for.
I can do this.
Lots of long, head-clearing walks.
Taking in the natural things around me.
The little insects.
They make me smile.
And breathe a little easier.
The bright red flower or its wilted friend?
I see the bright flower. With a smiling whisper of “ooh! What’s next?” .
See the colour :)
I read a lot of blogs.
Some are gorgeously superficial. Pretty, sparkly nail polish, or cupcakes that, while I can’t eat them, look awesome.
Others are deep.
Discussion of emotions, physical and mental pain.
And while I love those people.
I just sometimes can’t read that stuff.
For my own sake.
So I step back. And stick with the pretty flowers for a while.
What better way to spend a magnificent Sydney day?
Our plan for Saturday was to head to Circular Quay and hop on a ferry to Manly. Maybe have a picnic, some wine…
But on our way from Martin Place, where we hopped off the train, we wandered past some old buildings, and found ourselves at the Royal Botanic Gardens. A reasonable sized park in which to spend the day ;)
I suggested we take our shoes off an walk on the grass. A wonderful sensory experience! (I don’t recommend it on the hot bitumen though!!!)
These were almost spongy!
Some amazing colours! None of which I captured as well as I’d like. Still adjusting to the camera on the Sony Xperia Arc I’m trialling….
Into the herb garden, I was surprised to learn the shapes of some of the plants!
I didn’t know kaffir lime was a double leaf
