Back in My Big Backyard

I returned to Australia in September, and I'm enjoying the small-country-town-life in Daylesford again, along with lots of attention from Miss Jelly Bean.

Today was a day for household chores at Tasma House and Gardens with Adrian.  Housework is not something I enjoy doing, but I appreciate the ability to do it.  It has been just over one year since I had a tumour removed and dealt with the fears that go along with such a surgery.  I am thankful that everything went well and that I am healthy enough to travel and to do the kind of work that I need to be doing, as I return to Daylesford.

My Husband Is Now a Permanent Resident of the U.S.A.

Yay! After many, many, jumps through numerous hoops, Adrian has been awarded permanent residency in the U.S.A.  We are very thankful for this.

Visitors from Memphis!

Adrian and I were excited to have these visitors in our little ice cream shop in Clarksdale, Mississippi, last night!

My girl took a Polaroid pic of Adrian and me.  Here's my photo of that photo:

I'm in Business! (Small business, that is.)

As my Mississippi Delta house (The Holy Moly) becomes a home, I'm starting a new home-based business -- an ice cream shop/espresso coffee & snack bar -- at the corner of Third & Issaquena in downtown Clarksdale.

The City of Clarksdale

Last Friday, at a reception for Australian visitors at the Juke Joint Festival, Adrian Kosky and I were honoured by the City of Clarksdale, Mississippi.  We received a key to the city, as thanks for our involvement.  

We were surprised to receive this award.

It is a lovely feel appreciated.

I Got Married Last Monday!

It seems like I have been avoiding my blog, I know; but I have not felt like I had anything new enough to blog about......until now!
