Weekend reading

6 May 2016
We took a photo of this larger than life Marilyn Monroe statue when we were in Bendigo in March. It's part of an exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery that runs until mid-July.

I haven't been in the garden much with rain earlier in the week and Hanno's health taking up the end of the week. No need to worry. He has a referral to a specialist and physiotherapist and is coping at the moment. I hope to get back to the garden on the weekend. I have more time now but always seem to be behind. I think this is a common feeling but I'm looking for ways to get around it because I don't like playing catchup all the time.

I hope you enjoy the weekend and put aside time to relax.  I'll see you again next week. ♥︎

  1. Hope Hanno will be feeling better very soon and is not having too much pain. I'm trying to get some gardening time in this weekend before the rains come. Please share if you find a way to avert the catching up feeling, I'm most often in that place myself ;)

  2. Hi Rhonda, interesting article about food on road trips. It's always s big part of my planning if we go away. We probably only treat ourselves to one restaurant dinner per week, as a family of 5, when away. Meal planning is a necessity!
    I recently went camping over Easter, we managed never to leave the campsite! We had the MOST DELICIOUS dinners over the campfire. It was a mish mash of potatoes, carrots, corn, onion, garlic, Olive oil, wrapped tightly in foil, then literally thrown over the coals. Combine that with some steak, cooked over the fire. My girlfriend and all our children, were in food heaven! And, we saved a great chunk of money not eating out! Jade X

  3. Sorry to hear Hanno is still not well...difficult times for us with our husbands at the moment :-(
    Those To Do apps might be very clever and convenient. Until your battery goes flat. I'll stick to pen and paper!

    1. Nothing beats pen and paper, and the satisfaction of crossing items off those lists!
