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 Heady Afternoon

All the Queen's men  and women were invited,  this was just such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Partying with the Royals no less,  right outside their font door, a heady occasion! This will feature strongly in my 'Joy Portfolio' Sending to  Sharing the Joy Thursday Meri's Musings

All day long we'd be nursing baby and bunny, dress on, dress off, wrapping baby up, washing baby, changing nappies, swaddling her in a blanket, laying her in bed.... I mean the whole day! Then when it was bedtime for granddaughter Connie, of course baby and bunny had to go too... No one has taught her this deep nurturing behavior, it is as natural as breathing... I think this might be why these female doll-like creative expressions keep popping up, why I so enjoy playing with my images, expanding them in the digital playground. As a child I remember the books that had the perforated pull out paper dolls with interchangeable mix and match wardrobes, where the dresses hooked onto the dolls by tabs at the back, this fascinated me. I have the natural desire to nurture, this seems to be deeply seated within the feminine. When looking around 'blogsphere' a profusion of nurturing sister circles have appeared, nourishing and flourishing!  I have come to the real

Continuum

A Continuum ~> continual sequence of ~> elemental change ~> By far this is the most difficult post written by myself, ever. I have not visited this place for sometime... I have been 'lying low' as an old friend used to put it, not low through depression or anything like that but since my love passed away parts of my known world have passed too. I have difficulty recognizing the landscape around me, I'm lying low so that I can absorb some of the new terrain. I am still quite dizzy, it's going to take some time... Much of what I wrote about here in this space would involve a brief glimpse of 'my love' and our life together. I had thought of closing 'Finding my Bliss', for a pivotal part of everything this blog has stood for seemed on the surface of things to be missing! But as the days have come and gone I am beginning to look at things in a different light and although I am grieving for my love I find I am l feeling his prese
