I have a dream: Inspire me Monday


Inspire Me Monday #69 – Week Of April 29, 2013

Inspire Me Monday



This time of the year the fairies and elves have a ball at night!





I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream

Bridge over Hutt River


This is the bridge that connects me with my family.

Due to some heartbreaking misunderstandings

I don’t feel free to cross this bridge again.




I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down


The road Trompie and I take every day.

We go for walks on this pavement at least 3 times a day.

Inspire me Monday


Inspire Me Monday #68 – Week Of April 22, 2013

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

It’s write Easy!

Last Friday we had to describe a room. Any room you like or dislike.

I wrote the following.

My room

Entering my unit or flat could shock your brain!

The room is not an ordinary open plan kitchen and lounge it is a huge open space for a small flat like mine. Coming in at the front door and looking to the left there are four chairs. Not classy and all different sizes and colours. No ways!

They are four lazy boys. Two are blue and go together. The other two are green. One a lighter kind of off green and the other (well warn and used by me) is a dark green. There is a wooden TV cabinet with an old-fashioned TV in it against the one wall. Against the other wall is a wooden book shelve with lots of craft  and doggy books. In front of the TV is a small glass coffee table with three  copper sun birds  looking up to catch the sun.

In the one corner is a plant stand with three small pots with succulents in it trying to grow.

The curtains are red-brown and cream in a stripy pattern.

Looking at the space behind one blue chair is a small dining table with 4 chairs.

All the furniture is second-hand stuff. Not classy, nothing grand, just easy to use.

The most important object in the room is a lovely dark red dog bed with a yellow  and  also a red baby blanket. When everything is quiet inside the room you could even sometimes find the owner of the bed taking a nap during the day.

This is a description of my favourite room where I usually while away most of my indoor time.








Rain, beautiful rain!




The rain is here to stay for at least some more days!

Last night there were very heavy rain pours.

This morning walking Trompie I saw that it must have been a lot of rain.

The leaves on the side of the road were pushed away from the kerb.

I took the following photos to show!

I went down to the river and

It is flowing!

Something green : Friendship Friday

Friendship Friday

Just something green and beautiful



All Things Bright and Beautiful | Cecil F. Alexander


    • Refrain:
      All things bright and beautiful,
      All creatures great and small,
      All things wise and wonderful:
      The Lord God made them all.
  1. Each little flow’r that opens,
    Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colors,
    He made their tiny wings.
  2. The purple-headed mountains,
    The river running by,
    The sunset and the morning
    That brightens up the sky.
  3. The cold wind in the winter,
    The pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruits in the garden,
    He made them every one.
  4. The tall trees in the greenwood,
    The meadows where we play,
    The rushes by the water,
    To gather every day.
  5. He gave us eyes to see them,
    And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty,
    Who has made all things well.
