Appreciating Beauty and Bounty

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and I'm going to enjoy it in Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.  I'll be back in Australia next week.

Memphis and My Mom's Fudge

After a loooooonnnnnnnnnng journey that started in Daylesford at 9 a.m. on the 20th of December, I am in Memphis with my family and enjoying all that goes with that.  Jet lag forced me to sleep late in the day today, but once I was up I started snacking on fudge that my mom made......and then I was happy to get my requested homemade lasagna for dinner.  Yummmmmm!  This is what holidays are for, I think.  I am blessed to be able to spend time with my family, to eat extra-special treats, and to have high-speed wireless internet.

This is a Sign!

This week I helped Adrian set up a new sign for Tasma House.

I think it is beautiful!

Adrian hired a friend to paint the words onto a large piece of recycled iron which had been kept from another project.  For the base of the sign, we used an old garden-lounge chair, two old metal star-pickets, a few tent pegs, and some copper wire.

Lucky we both like to create things out of found objects, because this ended up being a very low-cost project that looks interesting, as well as inviting!

Constructing the sign is a sign that things are moving forward on Table Hill Road, and I am happy about that!

As 2010 comes to a close, I am wishing to be happily-busy in 2011.  I'm wanting to stir things up somewhere with Adrian.  Who knows where?  I don't.
