To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My first post for over a month! This is the longest time I have gone between posts since I started blogging 3 years ago. I've been a bit brain-dead.
Winter has finally set in. Although sometimes it is bleak, I still love the view out my back window. I love living in the trees.

I go down to my daughter's house- just a few minutes away - on Mondays, to put out her garbage bin. She is away for three months, travelling around Australia in a 4WD and caravan. I put her bin out every week so it looks as if there is somebody there, and take it in on Tuesday.
Even though it is winter the hibiscus in her yard have beautiful bright blooms.
P:-) and I attended a funeral on Friday - down near Nowra. I was amused to see this sign in the cemetery gardens.

It was a fairly new area, with lots of bushland around, but we didn't manage to see a snake. I do think it was too cold. Snakes are cold-blooded and need warmth to become active.
It was a pleasant drive down to Nowra as it always is.
We followed the expressway around the outskirts of Kiama.
Then turned off the highway to travel through the sleepy town of Geringong.
We continued on from Geringong, past the golf course....

I am pleased to be back on track with my blog. Writing each post helps me to see the positives in life.
