Sunshine and planning...

Though our winter days in the tropics are glorious, there is a decided chill in the air at morn's first light.
Yesterday, with our street still quiet and most residents not yet roused, I sat out on the front steps to warm myself as the sun rose over our house; and a little fellow decided he'd keep me company...

 Bob-the-dog rolled around by my side...

...then headed down under the carport to chew the remains of a lamb bone.

I had my camera on standby, hoping to see some Rainbow Lorikeets in the fruity chandeliers that hang from our palm trees, but none came visiting...

Afterwards I realised that with the fruit not yet red and ripe it will be another couple of weeks before their loud screech will be heard outside the bedroom window...

The familiar footsteps of Mr E echoed from inside, so with Bob-the-dog in tow I turned my thoughts to breakfast, and planning the day ahead...

 I'm rather rapt in a surprise gift that Heather left on my porch the other night and wonder if this pretty creature may find it's way into a design. You just never know what ideas may take form on Mondays...

Have a lovely week...



  1. A lovely start to your day. And what a surprise to find on your doorstep!

  2. Jenny I love the birds on the blue & mustard material. So pretty. Also the surprise is just gorgeous & asking to be immortalised in material design. hugs Sandra P

  3. What a cute gift...and what glorious winter weather you have. Come to Northern Ohio in the winter and you will appreciate yours even more.


  4. What a beautiful start to the day :) Bob-the-dog is adorable! What a cute gift - wondering what you may end up creating this week!

  5. Lovely post Jenny. I'm sure your gift will find a way into one of your designs, it's too nice not too. Have a great week. Hugs.....

  6. Nice relaxing start to your day...
    Love your surprise gift..

  7. What a lovely surprise gift. I never get good surprises like that. Mine are usually unwanted gifts from the neighbors dog. or wild o possom's in attack mode

  8. What a great way to start your day. Love your companion - and SURPRISE! Can hardly wait to see what creative idea grows from the gift.

  9. That little cow statue is so cute! And I love your dog companion. Can't wait to see what's in the next e-zine!

  10. Lovely slow start. That's a great way to begin any day.

I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
