Home Before the Rain!

morning all!

i'm turning my weekend into a trilogy..haha!

i guess it was a big deal
as i hadn't left our little city
for over a year..
what with my knee probs
and mr w being away working a lot etc etc etc.

sometimes before you know it
time just flies and here you are
just sitting at home.

last weekend broke the drought
i'm glad!

sunday morning
was relaxed.
our hotel bed was soft and comfy
and we really didn't have to rush.
the dogs weren't there to beg to be fed
we just had to meander downstairs
and across the road to have brekky right by the beach.

so we did.

after brekky we sat by the water
and watched the world go by
the storm clouds rolled into the bay...

the sun shone briefly

and some people played...

but already the wind was whipping up!

the clouds were moving in closer...

so after one last look down the beach
we packed up and headed for home...
beating the rain by a few hours!

when we got home
mr w headed off..back to work.
what else was there to do
on a wet windy afternoon

thankful that the rain had held off
the sunshine had stayed
for our noosa weekend away...

naturally Carol xox

p.s..have done a little sewing &  will show you a new cushion to start a new
little collection tomorrow!


  1. Just having a peek back at your photographs from your weekend away Carol. It looks lovely. Some time away is always good for the soul and I agree, rainy days are great for blogging.

    Hope you are well rested.
