Help me to always remember that because I am a child of the God of the universe, I have  destiny that is good.

This is Officeworks, one of my favorite shops. It sells everything for the office from, furniture, to computers, to staples to rubber bands. I go here every week to photo copy puzzles that I do for Manna House. Today was Manna House at my church, where we provide a free dinner for people who come in off the street.

R's street
After Manna House my daughter R and I went for a walk around the block. This photo is of her street looking towards the mountains. I love the way the clouds hang around the top of the mountain.

These flowers are a Pandorea species, native to Australia. We spotted them on our walk and loved the star shape of the buds.

I love the way the raindrop clings to the bud in this picture. I wish I could make out the reflection in it.

As we walked home we walked past a fence covered in jasmine with a beautiful perfume.

Jasper is my Daughter R's dog. He always enjoys our walks.

I just adore him. He is very funny. There are certain types of grass he doesn't like to walk on. He is a real city dog. He much prefers the concrete.

 Failure after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striving good enough to be called a failure.”
--George Eliot, Middlemarch

This quote above is actually a quote from a few blogs back, but I came across an article entitled Ways To Master The Art Of Perseverance. Click here if you are interested.

This Eco-retreat in the Himalayas looks beautiful. Click here to read more.

I love this outside office made of recycled bits and pieces and covered in old car tyres.  Click here to read more about it and see what it is like inside.

I want one of these terrariums that you control with an I pad. Click here to read more.
