Around here

Around here things are pretty much the same as usual with school and family life.  I have done some decluttering of the medicine box and lots of outdated paperwork which is no longer needed which felt good to get rid of and have some extra breathing space.

Last week I loved reading this book which is all about the laws of attraction and putting steps in place rather than just "dreaming" about things.  Denise shares her story how her and her husband won the 6 months all expenses paid Honeymoon Testers Competition which was out of 30,000 couples.  Remember the brilliant Queensland Tourism campaign for the Best Job in the World in 2009 and all that free publicity was a gold mine for Queensland and Australia.   Back to the story about Denise and her husband who at the time were living in London in a cold dreary flat with jobs they didn't enjoy and they put steps in place to win this competition and did.  They got through to one of the 50,000 couples then 1 of the 10,000 couples then 1 of 10 and won it knowing the whole time they would be the chosen couple.  It's a fantastic read and I borrowed the book from our local library and read it in 2 days as I loved it so much.  It's a great story and lots of take away thoughts for living your best life.  She also has another book that I'm reading as well which is equally as good.

Here's a few recent pics from our life.

Sienna bathed in golden sunset hour.

Local dam.

My soon to be in 3 months time 15 year old...very handsome if I do say so myself.

Loving finding all these shadows in the afternoon light inside our house.

More light and shade in the kitchen.

 I found these stripes really interesting...haven't seen that look before.

Some words above Sienna's desk...she is such a positive and happy girl.

So happy I threw out all the expired prescriptions and medicines.

    1. It was mostly said to her when she kept winning things..."oh your just a Lucky B" however when you read the book you'll understand it was all manifested.

    2. Not just "luck" as people would believe hence why they called her that.

  2. I love the way that light bounces and shadows fall around our house too, Kathy. I never can capture that in photos the way I'd like to though. Meg
