Easter 2011

Get-away... Blue Mountains
Much needed change of scene it was wet from the word 'go'
From the moment we left home
But it didn't bother as we jostled over prams and a good meal
An extra long table for too many couples seemed to disgruntle the waiter who brought our food

Along with the rain it didn't bother us as we discarded the prams to carry on our gathering
Back at the homestead where we were staying
The couples too many, ate the too plenty cake
And drank coffee and talked until the peak hour took most of them home
We then, with our neighbours alone
Dressed comfy, read comfy and made ourselves at home
A glass of wind-me-down and a home cooked meal
The clock took us past midnight and our rather liberal word quota
Wake to the sound of bacon and eggs pitter pattering with the rain again
He took the lead, our neighbouring friend
To dip our toes in to deep discussion
And this was the best, this slice of time

When the two, with their friends
Discussed 'abiding in the vine'
And then when all through, hearts on the table, thoughts off our chest
We walked, dreamed and got drizzling wet
And as the sun set to grey and then to black again

It didn't bother as we spent time with our neighbouring friends....

You might discover that I really liked the Zebra chair...

Remaining thoughts
"Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." - Jesus (John15:4-5)

Seasons at The Terrace

Well Folks, I've had this blog set aside for a while now. Great! I wrote nothing. Not one post! The notion of sharing the seasons of life from our little home 'The Terrace' with family and friends seemed to be a good one but I had trouble finding things I thought were worth sharing. So I forgot. Life happened, seasons passed (at The Terrace) and I moved on. I thought little of it, until now.

This morning a friend posed the simple idea, only hours ago, of sharing some photos of a recent get-away via a blog. At the very same time the suggestion came tumbling towards my ears, a lightbulb exploded inside! This is the sort of thing I could share and I already had the perfect platform to share it!

So here it is guys - a random collection of Seasons at the Terrace ~ unwrapped and perfectly platformed to share the joys of life with you - friends and family who are abroad, adventuring or simply sharing life together.
