Hello, yes, I'm still in the land of the living, just been taking it easy for a week or so.
We have celebrated Mother's Day here in Australia -
note the little white posy Mr C brought home from church.
And the pot of chrysanthemums he gave me...
(there was a pink one too)
Sunday morning brought more delights -
the Perfect Skype with our dear daughter in Ottawa
Her two little boys entertained us with various renditions of Twinkle Twinkle.
The Little Bebe said his word for us: 'Mama', and gave us an adorable smile.
Then we flew over to our younger son's place, where he produced waffles on his new waffle iron...
followed by this perfect example of Eggs Benedict.
(He certainly did not learn to cook so well from his Mum)
Isn't it wonderful when your children grow up to become accomplished and pleasant adults?
Our daughter sent this pretty card with a fashion theme,
cute blue bird napkin holder,
and a make-up bag with my initial.
She is very good at choosing gifts I love.
Thank you all so much for your lovely and supportive comments on my last post, following my recent trip to hospital.
I am feeling much better now, and regaining my strength and fitness.
Back on the pleasant daily walk routine, where I found these trails of bougainvillia this morning.
Mr C and I have been for coffee at the Wild Canary, a great new cafe recently opened in a plant nursery in our area.
With a bird-name like that, they can't go far wrong.
The food is mouth-watering - so good that I forgot to take picture!
There is a large kitchen garden adjacent to the cafe, and we saw a chef go out to harvest herbs - fresh to the plate...
The area is semi-rural, and has a lovely relaxed country feeling..
Love all the garden ornaments for sale, but they are mighty expensive.
I suspect they want to keep them all for themselves!
Off to the Art Gallery this week...
