First Lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
two strong and interesting women,
presented International Women of Courage Awards to 10 women who have shown exceptional courage and leadership as advocates for Womens rights and empowerment
on International Womens Day this week.
My efforts are very slight, but I do like the cushion I embroidered for the day a few years ago:
Women Can Do Anything.
Little Aussie visited - Bliss!
Swimming with his Dad in "Pa Pa's'' Pool,
he said he wanted to go on the Rainbow!
It took a while, but we realised he meant this section with the curved steps going into the pool.
Isn't that adorable?
The child has the mind and soul of a poet!

Princess Charlene of Monaco is visiting our shores.
She opened a wonderful Exhibition at the Bendigo, Victoria, Art Gallery:
"Grace Kelly: Style Icon"
direct from the V&A Museum, London.
Featuring 100 items belonging to her late mother-in-law Princess Grace of Monaco,
the exhibition includes costumes from Alfred Hitchcock's film Rear Window, and haute couture from Dior, Balenciaga, Chanel, and Givenchy. Sigh....
I would so love to go to see it!
The exhibition runs from 11 March to 17 June.
What a coup for a regional Art Gallery!
Younger Son and Delightful Daughter-in-law called in to socialise with nephew Little Aussie.
And they brought lunch:
A beautiful salad, and a variety of individual quiches from
I hope the coming week is excellent for you xx
