Around Me Now

I thought I’d share a few, unrelated, photos today.

Some of these photos were taken with my “real” camera, and some are from my iPhone.

When I take “real camera” photos, I use my good arm only  . . . as I’ve had to for the last decade.

I can’t wait to hear the doc say I can begin shooting for real!

I’m getting very restless for some camera adventures.

It’s definitely spring here now … even if the calendar doesn’t officially say so.

Mountain view from my backyard deck on a puffy cloud day.

My favorite scent in the entire world is the smell of fresh orange blossoms.

It’s intoxicating.

When the breeze blows the scent through the windows of my house, or when I’m in my backyard ….

I want to bottle it up and save it to enjoy year round.

Orange blossoms on my backyard orange tree – the best scent in the entire world.


Fred is around me always … even when he’s just napping.

Honestly, he’s the sweetest, kindest, soul I’ve ever encountered.

A comfortable, napping, Fred … on “his” couch.

We had a long, wet, winter here … and I imagine we might have a few more storms to come before we’re done with it.

After several years of extreme drought, we needed the rain desperately.

The hills behind my house are almost neon green in their “we got rain!!” joy.

I’m also happy we got rain, but let’s be honest …

I’m over it.

I’m ready for lots of days filled with sunshine.

As I’m gradually healing and feeling more like my normal self,

I’m returning more and more to real life.

That includes, of course, walks on the beach.


I’ll try to take a few nice beach photos for you soon … most likely with my iPhone until my arm gets a little stronger.

    Glad to hear your arm is on the improve, and your weather as well… we are still having pleasant enough fays but you can tell the evenings are getting cooler :-/

    Aw we would love you to do that! I think I might have mentioned but our next US trip is in November now, compared to the original April, but we are doing the east coast this time so not sure if we can work anything out… so you might just ‘have’ to come to Oz 😉 x
