BLACKBIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT
TAKE THOSE BROKEN WINGS AND LEARN TO FLY
ALL YOUR LIFE
YOU WERE ONLY WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT TO ARISE

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY EIGHT



MY NEPHEW'S SECRET HIDEOUT.

IT MUST RUN IN THE FAMILY. WHEN I WAS A KID, MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO PLAY AND READ WAS UNDER THE TABLE. 

GENETICS ARE FUN LIKE THAT.

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY SEVEN



FIRST INCURSION INTO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF FRUIT POPSICLES. THIS ONE IS MADE OF MANGO AND YOGHOURT.  YUMMY AND HEALTHY. AND SO, SO PRETTY!

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY THREE



THE DOOR TO THE COUNTRY HOUSE LOOKS LIKE THE ENTRANCE OF A MAGIC GARDEN. 

IF I HAVE TO BE HONEST, SOMETIMES THE WHOLE PLACE ALSO FEELS LIKE A DREAMY RETREAT, A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN HIDE AND BE APART FROM EVERYTHING. I'M LEARNING TO VALUE IT MORE AND MORE, AS I GROW OLDER. (AND WISER, I HOPE!)

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY NINE


IT'S TIME TO FINISH THE CLOSET!  I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT WHEN IT'S FINALLY READY. I LOVE THE WAY IT LOOKS NOW.

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SEVEN



THERE'S SOMETHING INCREDIBLY APPEALING TO ME IN OLD STONE WALLS. THEY'RE SO EVOCATIVE...

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SIX



SO, A CAT HAPPENED. 

THIS FELLOW SUDDENLY APPEARED OUT OF NOWHERE WHILE WE WERE CHILLING OUT AT THE SWIMMING POOL AND THE DOGS WERE UNDER HOUSE ARREST DUE TO SOME SHENANIGANS. LONG STORY SHORT, THE CAT DECIDED THAT IT WAS THE PERFECT TIME TO TAKE A STROLL AROUND THE PLACE AND TOTALLY WIN OUR HEARTS. 

IT'S A STRAY, I DOUBT IT WANTS TO BE ADOPTED, BUT UNTIL IT PARTS FOR GREENER PASTURES, I'M GOING TO FOOL MYSELF INTO BELIEVING I HAVE A CAT!

WISHFUL THINKING IS THE WAY TO GO!

I WONDER HOW, I WONDER WHY
YESTERDAY YOU TOLD ME ABOUT THE BLUE, BLUE SKY,
AND ALL THAT I CAN SEE IS JUST ANOTHER LEMON TREE

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT



YOU ONLY LIVE FOREVER IN THE LIGHTS YOU MAKE.
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG WE USED TO SAY
THAT YOU ONLY HEAR THE MUSIC WHEN YOU HEART BEGINS TO BREAK
WE ARE THE KIDS FROM YESTERDAY

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX



OK, I'M CHEATING. 

THIS IS NOT MY ACTUAL HOUSE. (THOUGH, IT ALSO... KIND OF IS?)  TRUTH IS, I DON'T LIVE HERE ALL YEAR ROUND, BUT IT'S MY PARENTS' HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY, THE PLACE WE SPEND OUR HOLIDAYS. IT'S AN AMAZING PLACE,  FULL OF CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, AND THIS SUMMER I'M INTENDING TO SPEND LOTS AND LOTS OF QUALITY TIME THERE.

SO, LONG STORY SHOT, I HOPE YOU LIKE OLD COUNTRY HOUSES, BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO GET A LOT OF PICTURES OF THIS ONE IN THE NEXT WEEKS!

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THREE

SORRY GUYS!

I'VE BEEN OUT OF TOWN FOR A FEW DAYS. IMPROMPTU VACATIONS ARE THE BEST KIND OF VACATION, IN MY OPINION, AND I'M NEVER GOING TO SAY NO TO ONE OF THOSE. 

ANYWAYS, HERE I HAVE MY LOVELY BUTTERFLIES. THE HUSBAND KIND OF HATES THEM,  (HE HAS A CONFLICTIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH YELLOW AND ORANGE, LONG STORY)  AND THEY FEEL LIKE A DAILY SLAP ON THE FACE TO HIM. 

THEY MAKE ME SMILE, THOUGH,  SO I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO STAY UP THERE FOR A LITTLE WHILE!

365 CHALLENGE: DAY ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SEVEN




TRY TO LEAVE A LIGHT ON WHEN I'M GONE
SOMETHING I RELY ON TO GET HOME
ONE I CAN FEEL AT NIGHT, A NAKED LIGHT
A FIRE TO KEEP ME WARM.

LIGHT ON
