ABSOLUTELY NOTHING


Hello, Dear Readers, and Fellow Bloggers...
After a week spent de-briefing myself from my legal experience,
Red Cardinal is Back to Business...


which is writing a blog about Absolutely Nothing, really...


Found a new piece for the milk glass collection, while we were out adventuring with my Dad, the 92 year old Superstar!


He found a friendly dog in the cafe, and had the best time petting it..


Dad likes nothing better than a Cappuccino and a scone & jam.
Easily pleased, is Dad.


Mr C, on the other hand, is partial to these, and makes quite a welter of it during Lent.
Ha, they'll be gone next week.


Nameless Yellow bush is putting on an Easter Show, and attracting the lorikeets.
Crazy birds not the least bit disturbed by the loss of a family member to that snake the other week.

Snake has not been seen again, although there have been a few odd thuds in the roof space.. hmmm



Swatting up on my Fractured French...


Adios, Amigos!!

Oops, Non, that would be Spanish, it would ..

Bonsoir! :)

    1. Dear Val, glad you like my random post. I have been in a blogging block for a week - sensitive souls, aren't we? Sometimes a bit of a downer in the weather does that, I find. I do hope the English buns arrive for Easter - they will be Yummy! Happy Blessed Easter to you too. I'll be singing with the choir this year - Wonderful!

  4. Enjoyed your "nothings". Kind of like stopping in for coffee, no reason, just visiting a friend. I really like your milk glass, I have a small collection myself.

    1. Dear Darla, I like your thinking - yes, drop in for a visit - that is how we operate :) Milk glass is highly stylish, you must show your collection to us one day.

  5. Patricia, I love your idea of nothing and you deserve it after all the legal business. Your Dad is a person of taste. :-) I have a husband who loves hot cross buns too and is without until I make him some in time for Friday.

    1. I do like my nothings to be pretty, Perpetua. Surrounded by a few cheap pieces of coloured glass and I am a happy little birdy. Possibly a magpie. You make hot cross buns? That is seriously impressive - ours most definitely come from a supermarket.

    2. So do ours normally, Patricia, but needs must when one is snowed-in at Easter. :-) I make the dough in the bread machine and then knead in the fruit before proving and baking.

  6. Blogging about what makes you happy makes us happy too. Speaking of which I am off to eat a Cadbury's studded hot cross bun. Yum.

  8. Patricia, I really like this kind of post! Randomness is good at times; sharing another side of ourselves Glad to see your Dad is doing well and I know he must have enjoyed the outing with you. And you know I love that dog he's petting. Enjoy your hot cross buns and have a wonderful Easter.

  9. Thank you Sanda, embracing Randomness for Easter. We will take Dad out again on Easter Sunday which is likely to be very random! You have a wonderful Easter, too.

    1. Hi Beryl, thank, we have a few roses blooming for Easter. Dad has a way with animals, and charms most of them. He had a pet possum which he hand fed when he lived at home. And of course, he feeds birds too, even at the retirement home, having bird seed tucked away in his room. He has dementia, but this has not dimmed his love of all creatures! Happy Easter!
