Oh What A Beautiful Morning

A lovely sunny Nelson morning, makes it hard to believe that around the next corner or two, is the winter...
Days like this make me appreciate how good it is to be happy and well, and to not take anything for granted eh...

Ripe Old Age

Oh wow, it has been sooooooo good to see the sunshine today (and for the entire day)...

If it has't been raining or blowing it has been just "dull". I probably should have taken advantage of this gorgeous day and gone for a walk along the beach, but hey, when you know you need to get some scrapbooking completed, well, say no more.

Completed this L/O, it is MIL on her 90th birthday. Liked the look of the challenge on Scottie Crafts, so this is what has "come together".

Used products etc, as stated, doily, tag, flowers, bling, leaves, punch, inks, old necklace I dismantled.

Good Company/Food/Wine

Have just had a really lovely relaxing weekend in the beautiful Golden Bay area, staying in a Holiday House at Tata Beach.  Weather was very changeable, but between downpours we did manage to fit in quite a lot.
Seven of us went, a Nannie and a Nana, a Daughter and a Daughter-In-Law, and four delightful Grandies..
Those that wanted to, enjoyed kayaking, swimming, a little rock climbing, salmon fishing, a labyrinth amongst rocks, (fantastic).
We visited The Rosy Glow homemade chocolate shop in Collingwood, the Living Light candle shop, and also took the children to Bencarri Farm Park, but alas that closed for the winter months last weekend!!!
We enjoyed a quiet tipple or two in the evenings with plenty of yummy snacks and food devoured...  Yum
Thanks Brendy, Asha, Trace, Emily, Hamish, Jack and Curtis for your great company over the weekend.

Checked out the challenge at Southern Girls for this fortnight, one for the "girls"...  This one completed very recently.
