What I love about where I live
so here goes...
I love that it is warm enough that I can drink tea like this all year round
I have no clue whatsoever how any of you live in a place
where it actually gets cold...
just don't think I would ever man up enough to ever go outside
and would probably spend half my life putting on and taking off 5 million layers of clothes
just to take out the trash
for me it is fruit teas, sunshine and warmth the whole way...
I love that I live so close to the water
that every day on my way home from the dreaded school drop off
which is dreaded because it would appear that dads and drop off zones just don't mix
after experiencing the horror of dads who see the drop off zone
like some grand dodgem type experience
I get to drive home and look out over the gorgeous bay
and the sun is all glittering on it and all lovely
and if you don't look too closely you can ignore the mudflats if it is low tide
and I love the tidal swimming pool that is still a feature of the waterfront
after I have no clue how many years
and people fish along the path
even though I don't think anyone has actually caught a fish there in years
it is just so hopeful... or delusional
depending on whether you are having a good day or a bad one
today is am going with hopeful....
I love that the jacaranda trees are all in bloom at the moment
so I get to drive across a carpet of bluey purple
I feel quite special driving as the trees strew their blooms in my path
only fitting I think
I also love the jasmine that is finally blooming
and making the whole house smell pretty special
and happily covering the slight tang of dust in the air
due to a bit of a housework strike that has been going on
last but not least I love that I live in a place
where the fruit is tropical and wonderful and fills everywhere with gorgeous smells
and the markets are full of locally produced wonders
at the moment it is all about the first mangoes, the tang of passionfruit
early red papaya and the last of the crazy sweet strawberries
any trip to the market is just a joy of sweet summery wonderful
which is absolutely heavenly... which fits in nicely with the Celestial theme over at APR
I am going for the tenuous link prize two weeks running over at APR...
to see what heavenly lists are on people's minds...
