I’m still recovering from my cold. The cold symptoms have all but gone away (just a cough left) but I now need to rebuild my energy levels before I’m capable of doing much else so once again only one short post this week focusing on Share Your World.

Because of Memorial Day in America, Cee has focused on holiday related questions for the Share Your World challenge this week.

Share Your World – Week 22

  1. Every country in the world has lost men and women in some kind of Armed Forces.  When does your country celebrate or morn their deaths? (Optional)In Australia, we remember our fallen on Anzac Day which occurs on the 25th of April each year.
  2. What is your favorite holiday or holidays?

    I’ve always enjoyed the holidays that bring our family together. That generally means Christmas and Easter. Around Easter we usually celebrate Passover as well (although we haven’t the last few years).
  3. How do you celebrate that holiday?We celebrate these holidays with family gatherings. Because of the way our family is structured we tend to have at least 3 celebrations for each holiday; one with E’s family, one with my dad, and one with my mum and the extended family on her side.

This week, Cee didn’t ask what we’ve been grateful for and what we’re looking forward to but I still want to let you know.

I’m grateful for my improving health. Last week I literally did nothing all week, this week I’ve been able to do a small amount of work. I’m looking forward to my birthday on Monday and spending time with family and friends to celebrate.


Connecting with Nature…

E and I had a wonderful weekend away connecting with nature!

As well as catching up with friends on the first night, we spent a fair bit of time alone on the beach near our Ecopod accomodation. I was glad I had the energy for walks along the beach and really enjoyed just sitting there listening to the waves and watching the birds go by.

 

We had wonderful weather while we were travelling on the Friday but the weather started turning on the Saturday, with most the day being drizzles, clouds, and wind. Before it got too wet we walked along the beach and then spent most the afternoon playing games and listening to audio books in our accomodation while listening to, and watching, the weather change outside.

I was grateful to come home on Sunday though as the weather took a nasty turn that night with plenty of rain over the last few days!

Just a short post today, as I’m recovering from the business of the weekend! Enjoy some nice photos from our trip. These are just ones I took with my phone, I’ll share some of the ones E took with the camera in future posts.

It’s Good Friday today. The start of the Easter long weekend.

Here in Australia, many people are taking an extra EXTRA long weekend because ANZAC day is the following Friday so by taking 3 days off work you can have a 10 day weekend.

So if you’re doing this and having an extra long break, enjoy it!

Happy Easter Long Weekend

What ever is happening for you this weekend, have fun. Spend time with family and/or friends, do something you enjoy and find some time to relax.

I plan to do all of these things. I’ll be spending time with family, enjoying some time outside, drawing, reading, and relaxing.

Do you celebrate Easter?

What are your plans for this weekend?
