Barbie time...

Well, when I get my digital camera fixed I will take pics of our fab work we did out in the garden this morning. It is a lovely 24 Degree day here in Melbourne and the Sun is a shining!! Great Spring Racing Carnival weather for sure.
The BBQ above is just to die for dontcha reckon? I love our Barbie too, it is almost as big as that one there...I will take a pic of it when the cam is a goin' again.
Today began at 6am for me. I woke, got shitty at myself because I couldn't get back to sleep. So I hauled me lard butt outta bed, got dressed, got my runners on and stepped out into the cold morning air. The Sun was beginning to rise, and I walked half way down the street before I even woke up properly!
I could see the hot air balloons lifting up into the sky in the city of Melbourne. When I drive into work for a morning shift I am lucky to see them then also. They are so majestic looking.
I walked for 40 minutes, got the paper, read this in the Herlad Sun, and thought to myself, "Yeah, on whose terms did Rummy leave?" Guessin' we will never know.... anyhoo...
I got home from my walk, got the kids up and off to school, went shopping, got home, did a bit of Spring gardening out under the pergola...now we can see the fish pond without having to seperate the ferns and Iris'.
I caught up with my lovely friend Stefanie from Sydney by telephone. Although we haven't spoken in a while due to such busy lives we lead it just is to affirming that your true friends are like family, family that never even grew up under the same roof yet have an amazing connection all the same.
So, it is Barbie weather and I am going to make some nice salads and cook some scrumptious food for tea tonight, but not before I take the kids for a bike ride.
Have a fun weekend. Tomorrow is Rememberance Day- Lest We Forget.
