On my mind ...

This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through 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 TODAY. If you're in another country you should join in when you read this, even if it's still Thursday.

To take part, all you have to do is post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, come back and add a comment below, with a link to your blog photo so we can all find you. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.


On my mind today is giving our recently purchased picnic set a good clean.  On Sunday, Sarndra and Shane have organised a family picnic and we're really looking forward to it. As well as family, a few friends have been invited, so it should be a lovely day. Tomorrow I'll roast a chicken, and make potato salad and a whole orange cake to place on the shared table. Today I have to get that picnic set spic and span.

  6. My son recently became engaged, and while trying to think what to get them for an engagement gift, I remembered your picnic basket...not a bargain like yours, but still a very well received gift, and has been used quite a few times already.

    Enjoy your picnic...more cuddles with Mr Gorgeous!

  10. Your picnic set is lovely. I've always wanted to purchase one. Somehow they hold a romantic aspect with them :) :) Enjoy the set ;) :) I'm thinking about homemade avocado ice cream today. I'm participating in a series with another blog. However, it's perfect for your "On my mind..." series :) :) I photographed the whole process. You can scroll to the end of the blog to see the photo of the finished product :) :) Have a lovely day :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  15. We're off on a picnic too tomorrow Rhonda. We're heading off to the Lowood Show. Always takes the kids to a country show every year. We try to avoid the 'Ekka' like the plague (even though I went every year when I was young).

    I'll be taking some of those Pear & Coconut Mini Muffins I made.

  23. A picnic sounds such a lovely idea especially with the wonderful weather SE Qld is having at the moment.
    On my mind today is just a little tinge of regret of how my first 'swap' turned out. But on reflection I think I like the way things turned out after all!

  31. Hi, there....
    A picnic sounds wonderful!
    Sadly, our picnic area is currently on fire.....
    We are anticipating evacuation notices....so terrible!

    We would appreciate your prayers..not only for our beloved forest, but, the BRAVE firefighters doing their best to protect life and limb!
