On my mind ...

This is on my mind is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives with these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about. It could be something already done but still on your mind, something you're about to do and you're working out how to do it, or a place at home where you've spent a lot of time during the past week. It could be anything.

To take part in this, all you have to do is post your photo and write a short caption explaining it. When your photo is published, come back here and add a comment, with a link to your blog photo. We will all be able to follow the breadcrumbs in the woods that lead to each new photo. Who know where these trails will lead us.


Every day, and several times every day, I'm thinking about the exquisite soft skin of babies and what to put next it. This leads me on to the trail of people we leave behind us, and the trail we are already part of. I'm grateful to have such thoughts to carry with me through the days.

  5. Good morning Rhonda,

    Just harking back to yesterdays post. I meant to say that I thought you looked younger in that natural photo than the one on the side of your blog. I think those little babies have added a beautiful new dimention to your life. I am so happy for you and Hanno. Have a great week end.

    Blessings Gail

  8. On my mind today is the plight of those people who have been affected by the flooding in Queensland. It's almost surreal how the events have unfolded and that we are witnessing floods that will be 'written in the annals of timehttp://thenextstage-maria.blogspot.com/2011/01/on-my-mind.html and Qld history'.

  32. Wanting to reach out to other women in peace and love. Sometimes life can be very lonely and it's comforting to know there are women around the world thinking the same thoughts about life and family!

  35. Moments of joy are often fleeting, but doing things that matter to me, makes me happy - not just at the time, but also in anticipation and in retrospect. Some things I did in the last few days that continue to feed my happiness and sense of well-being:

  41. Babies ... aaaah! You have so much to look forward to this year.

    I just wanted to let you know that I made my first batch of soap today. Thank you so much for your tutorial, I don't think I would ever have attempted it if you hadn't made it so clear and easy to follow, especially with photographs at each step. I can't wait to find out how it turns out now.
