Happy S-u-n-furling

I've joined in with the August Break project hosted by Susannah Conway (see the badge) and my happiness this week has been to capture the sunflower in my garden as it gently unfurls, (one pic per day).

The rest of the week has been a bit higgledy piggledy, I've been psyching-up all summer to start the massive job of painting the exterior of our house, finally got down to it this week promising ourselves a holiday in our beloved chariot when completed.  Well it has rained on and off all week hasn't it!  Finally finished yesterday only to be denied the get-away today as the chariot's wing mirror got broken two weeks ago, my love ordered one immediately off ebay, they promised it to be here in ten days and isn't!!!!

Oh, kettle, computer and toilet cistern all on the blink this week too, all necessities, been very frustrating!
But
Today is our wedding anniversary and even if we don't get off on holiday, can't have a hot drink or go to the loo I can always take another shot of the S-u-n-furling flower and if my computer doesn't freeze on me post!!!:)


Wishing many happy moments to all of you.

Sunflowers are just the happiest of flowers. I love it when you stumble upon a whole field of them smiling and winking at you in the sunshine :)
Hope you get away and a wonderful time. Happy Anniversary.

Have a wonderful anniversary. I love your picture of the sunflower. Your post is such a wonderful picture of life and how we can find happiness in spite of all the irritations that present themselves.

I hope you're off in your chariot by now and celebrating! Sounds like you really deserve a break. Have a happy weekend!

Happy anniversary! I love the idea of photographing the unfurling of your sunflowers. May your weekend unfurl beautifully and happily.

Happy Anniversary!! We are currently painting the exterior of our house - ugh! What a process! Now I see why the pros charge so much. It is a ton of work. I hope you get to drive off somewhere soon and enjoy a day to yourselves. Cheers!

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
