Linking up with Hawthorn and Julie for the Advent Calendar.

DAY 16.

A wayside marker, taken whilst we were walking the Skipton to Ballarat Rail Trail  I did quite a few posts about this trail back in 2014.
Another  great archive find.


I do not seem to have any inspiration or motivation at the moment for anything other than keeping the house clean, garden tidy, husband fed & worrying about my brother.  Not sure whether it is because Xmas is coming up or what?  
BUT....... I have been picking these and it took me close to an hour this morning (before it got too hot) to pick around 600g and think I'll be doing it nearly every day for a while.  Must get some down to our local green grocer and also start freezing some for ourselves.  Been having fresh ones with my porridge of a morning.

Just wee part of one bush.  The other hasn't even started colouring up yet.
Whilst running some errands yesterday, I noticed these reflections on a building and thought, wow, a great photo.  And here it is.  

Isn't this great, even though I've left on some writing.  I just didn't think you'd get the same effect if I started chopping it up too much.  Must clean that lense a bit better too.
Will I craft tomorrow.  Don't know, but I've all my numbers now, so that is a bonus.
Have a great weekend all, take care & lots of huggles from me.


  1. Nice one Susan! Lovely reflection photo :) I am not surprised you are not crafting at the moment, you sound busy - don't put any pressure on yourself, I will email you later today xx

    1. Thanks Hawthorn. I'm now wondering how it will look when there are no flowers. No, I'm not really busy, just faffing around generally.

  2. Yum, blueberries. It seems funny you picking them at Christmas time when my little bushes are completely bare.

    1. Yes, blueberries, but then it is summer here. Have found a nice recipe for an orange/blueberry cake, so might try it next week.

  3. I know what you mean about wondering when you will get to the end of picking all the blueberries! Even though I was almost swamped by the this year I'll be planting more bushes in 2017 :)

    Don't worry about not crafting, you will get back to it when the time is right :)

    1. Thanks Jayne. Must pick again this morning, though it rained over night & I'll probably get a bit damp. I've so much running around in my brain at the moment, I don't know where to start.

  4. Love the reflections in the windows of that building. Clever to notice them. Don't worry about not feeling like crafting, you will get you mojo back when all the Christmas rush is over, I am sure. xx
