Even though Spring doesn’t officially start until Saturday, we’ve had some absolutely beautiful spring days this week. I love spring. It’s definitely my favourite season. I can go out and sit in the sun without fear of burning and apart from the obvious benefits of sunlight, people seem a lot happier. Yesterday I had several random conversations with people, smiling, laughing, joking, it was great! It seems like the sun coming out has chases away the winter doldrums. Yes!
This past weekend was pretty fantastic too. 39 turned out to be not so bad at all. I had a great day at work on Friday, starting with a BBQ brekkie with everyone, then cake for morning tea and some fairly out there singing of ‘Happy Birthday’! Then out for dinner with some friends to my favourite Thai Restaurant – gotta love Thai! Followed up with Saturday morning Brekkie with friends. Lovely.
Saturday night we celebrated my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. it was a fun night with lots of old friends and much laughter – doesn’t get much better than that.So Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad! Much love and many blessings upon your respective heads.
And happy spring!!!!

Oh my goodness! I just realised that ’39’ is just over a week away. How on earth did THATcome around so quickly!?
I’m seriously no where near done with 38 yet!! In fact, I don’t think I was anywhere near done with 37, 36, 35, 34, 33, 32, 31, 30, 29, 28, or for that matter, 27!
26 on the other hand was well done. Done well, finished, even perhaps a tad overdone.
So, in light of the aforementioned unfinishedness, I hereby declare that 39 is postponed.

I just finished reading “The Shack” by William P. Young, and it’s not an overstatement to say that it’s quite possibly the best book I’ve ever read (outside of the Bible).
I’m completely overwhelmed by what I’ve read.
The song “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him” is playing relentlessly and with great joy in my mind. It’s not in the book, it’s just all I can think of at the moment through the tears of love and gratitude.
I really didn’t think I’d like it. The opening story isn’t one that you get to mess about with. It’s awful. It hurt to read it. Having said that though, it was so worth reading on. I don’t want to give anything away, so I wont go into any details, but I will say, that this book really is amazing.
