Observations from my office window

Staring thoughtfully (note not idly) out the window this morning and contemplating my lot in the universe over a steaming mug of tea, a creamy appendage caught my eye. Our offices have a little balcony that overlooks one of the parking lots and after much twisting and jiggling the door gave way and I was able to view it in more detail. Normally a rather dull brown, a mundane palm seed frond had morphed into a quirky piece of art.

    

A little later in the day, the changing light gave it a slightly different look ………

    

“The secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life, and in elevating them to art.”

Because some days are diamonds and some days are coal

Its been a crappy week after a fabulous weekend (we “chilled” and bonded and laughed, a lot).

We walked (very dull postboxes owned by folk in our part of town)

We gardened on Sunday (foto out of the bedroom window courtesy of trust old cell phone). Sunday was hot – we steamed like a well done plate of vegies as the constant recent rains came back to bite with a vengeance). Did fit in a quick breakfast at a local eatery and a hasty spin past the bookshop to acquire some reading material on sale ……………

Frivolous froth and a glass of Tall Horse Merlot (the blue one) must lie on my horizon somewhere ………….. please!

My place of torture looks like this today

           

You will notice there is no evidence of what lies on the floor, it is a deliberate omission, it’s not a pretty sight – paper EVERYWHERE. Himself aka the name on the letterhead has landed himself in hospital with a bout of pneumonia – he still has his cell phone with him – he is making really bad business decisions 😦

There is the prospect of a chicken, butternut and feta bake with pumpkin seeds for dinner – mmmmmmmm delish, does merlot go with chicken???? Well it does tonight, culinary rules be damned.
