I was wondering just now why I haven’t posted since last Monday and more importantly, why I have not managed to visit people this week. And I am also thinking…why is it 8.30 Sunday night and I am only just beginning MoM?
This was my week…or what I can remember of it. Monday began with a little disappointment…..no usual play and fun with Matty today, we would have to wait until Tuesday.Only one more day:) But then I had an unexpected invitation to visit Sculpture by the Sea, an event which is held every year in Sydney on the coastal walk between Bondi and Tamarama. The artwork was exciting, the day was sunny (and windy) and the company was lovely. The picnic lunch brought by my friend was scrumptious…. and imagine sitting on top of a cliff looking at the most spectacular view of the ocean and coastline.
Unfortunately my camera battery died after only a few shots…and I tried, unsuccessfully, to take pics with my phone. A strong wind on top of a cliff is not the best conditions for taking photos with a tiny iPhone.
Then I literally ran in the door and changed into my gym gear…no time to be nervous about The Return to the Gym. I used to be a gym junkie..but now was feeling like a self conscious gym stranger. It turned out to be not so traumatic after all….a nice friend Mo I haven’t seen for ages to talk to and a chat with the warm and charming gym owner, Morris …all while I was exercising.
Tuesday morning…. little Matty, our grandson arrived. Who could not have fun and smile when a dear little boy like Matty runs in the door, literally jumping for joy.
The rest of the week included four doctors’ appointments (nothing serious), a visit to the solicitor (my Dad’s estate) with my sister and a very sad visit to the cemetery. I did manage another visit to the gym later in the week though!
Lastly, there was lesson preparation and a night and morning class to teach. I love teaching again…just casually, but I find it so tiring. I slept all afternoon.
However, I do have some interesting images to show you. I have selected a few from Sculpture by the Sea. I have used much restraint. I didn’t want to change other artists’ work, so in one case I merely gave it an orange border! And I have included pics of my dear friends who invited me along.
Later in the week I hope to put up more pics of the the sculpture. It really is worth visiting if you can…even if it is just a visit to the website.
So I am really sorry if I didn’t return your visit this week… I thought I might manage it today…but alas… that isn’t going to happen.
One other really good thing happened this week. Brenda of 4ORANGE SAKE wrote wonderful words about Mandarin Orange Monday…an me:) Thank you Brenda, you really did make my day!!:)) Brenda regularly takes part in MoM and she makes the most beautiful photo art.
So now it is your turn. Just add your orange art/photography to the linky list. It will appear on a new page. If you are new to MoM you can find out more here.
