On my mind ...

8 April 2011
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, 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. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. If you are wondering why no one has commented on your On my mind post, maybe it's because you haven't commented on anyone else's. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.

Is it any surprise that today I'm still thinking about Jamie?  They will all be here for lunch tomorrow; it will be Jamie's first outing and Tricia will be here.  I'm serving free range roast chicken, potato salad and a fresh garden salad. You all know we're in the middle of passionfruit season here so dessert will be passionfruit cheesecake.  Yesterday I made passionfruit yoyos.  No doubt our visitors will go home armed with enough passionfruit to sink a small battleship. 

Thank you for your visits this week.  I hope your weekend is a beautiful one.

  30. I hope your day is full of blessing. He really is lovely.

    On my mind today is simple living


  31. Sweet Treasure in my Mailbox....

  32. On my mind is "the second blooming" that author Agatha Christie speaks of in this quote from her autobiography. I can sense that time coming soon in my life.

    "I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly you find--at the age of fifty, say--that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about....It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you."

  33. Enjoy that lovely grandson!

  34. What a precious photograph! Passionfruit cheesecake?!? Oh my, that sounds like heaven. Have a wonderful visit.

    On my mind is the anniversary of kicking one of my bad habits...

  35. He really is a beautiful baby. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

  36. Oh that Jamie, of course we all expect you to mention the sweetest flower in your garden.

    All joys,

  37. My mind is on my tulips and my dying Maple tree today.


  38. New to your blog and I've delighted with all you have to offer - I'll be back that's for sure!

  39. Congratulations on your gorgeous Grandson.
    We've had my parents visiting our farm for the past few days and I just adore watching them as grandparents to my girls. It is such a wonderful relationship.
    Also, I need to remember to join in with this on a Friday. We've been busy, busy here with the honey collecting and spinning and all the preserving. Its a wonderful time of year.

  40. That is a beautiful pic! I can feel the love Hanno has for Jamie. I also noticed they both have the same haircut. :)


  41. what a beautiful child! I just love being a Grandma!

    I am anticipating the weekend, because I am going to make kitchen curtains, and try to finish up a healing shawl for my Grandma counterpart (my daughter's mother-in-law) who is having a mastectomy in two weeks.
