expensively stylish.


I could not…think of any place…

…to which the description of… 

…expensively stylish was more apt… 

…than Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab in

the United Arab Emirates.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Ritzy



Log cabin style accommodation

greeted us at…

…the Mike Wiegele Blue River Resort

in British Columbia.

Comfy and cozy is an apt description for this accommodation

which came equipped with a huge fireplace if required.

And note the view out the window.

it is real and not a painting.

Just stunning, gorgeous…or

a superlative of your choice..


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge: Comfortable-And-Cozy

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Orange-Pink


I have alternated colours this week.Bags of Australian grown oranges

in Melbourne.

Pink blossom closer to home.

The manufacturer calls this colour ‘Jaffa’.

Most people refer to it as orange.

It is one of the last cars manufactured in Australia,

by General Motors Holden.

A pink Galah.

Often people who do something silly

are called galahs also.


 Not sure where I found this

or what it is supposed to be,

however, it is orange.


Who cares what colour they are.

Macaroons are always yummy.

Just not healthy.

I believe this photo was taken in Florence.

Just cannot remember if the bag

was for sale or

owned by a fellow traveller.

The other option was that it fell into the:

‘...Darling this matches my shoes…

and it’s only 1,000 Euro...’


Captured in Lucerne, Switzerland.




a surprising and previously unknown fact,
especially one that is made known in a dramatic way.

Taji the pup was encouraged and enjoyed…

playing with water.

As winter rains arrived and hand watering

was no longer necessary, we did not realise

that Taji and Candi were

still playing with water.

It was only when hoses began to show signs

of leaking at random places, via very small holes

and noticed that most of the 50 sprinklers

(that white thing on black plastic pipe,

bottom left corner, above)

were missing that we realised that the

game was being played in our absence.

A revelation to us.

And an even greater revelation to the dogs

when they were told no more chewing on said fixtures.

And at $6.50 per fitting I really didn’t care

how sad they looked knowing there was

no more play time with the sprinklers.
