Mixed Lollies on Monday...

A weekend full of goodness.
My Prince returned from school camp.
(Decided not to post a photo of crying mother - just picture swollen eyes but happy heart)

Before picking up young man from the airport, Hubby and I tried a new burger hub
in Subiaco. Sat outside to enjoy the sunshine and the atmosphere.

If I'd been allowed to, I would have spread out on the table and gone to sleep.

I was starving so I hoped the serves would be generous and happy to report that the
"garden goodness" vegetarian burger (with a serve of fries & sweet chili mayo)
did not disappoint. At all.

Yes it gives you stinky breath and, for some, even taints the smell of their sweat 
(or am I the only one?) but I do love red onion. 
So happy face when the slices in my burger were on the chunky side.

Sunday was Fathers day here in Oz.

So the day was launched with home made cards, Anzac biscuits and every one's chosen brew - in bed.
Even Pooch was allowed up to give Dad a bit of love.

Then we joined extended family for breakfast in Fremantle.
So much fun to hang with generations and watch all the love unfold.
Grand Dads, Old Dads, Young Dads, New Dads. The restaurant was filled with all sorts.

The rest of the day was a bit of a blur but at least Hubby managed to squeeze in a bit of couch and sport time. We also conquered the rather daunting challenge of rearranging our crazy room.
(So named due to the state we inherited it in when we bought our little cottage in the hills)
Haven't got any photos yet but will do soon.

How was your weekend peoples?


These are my goals for the week.
(Maybe if I share them I'll be motivated to accomplish them?)

Create and make.
Try a new recipe.
Meditate  - every day for at least 15 minutes.
(this has been a goal for the last 2 years... Mmmm)
Take a box of pre-loved goods to the Salvos
Scan some more Vintage illustrations.
Clean and sort my wardrobe.
(Ok now we are getting ambitious)
And last but not least... 
Buy seedlings for the up and coming Herb/Vegie Patch.

Phew. Sigh. Shuffle. Cough...
Tap, Tap, Tap....
Look around room...

Alright alright.
I'm off.

As Edward Young stated so wisely

Procrastination is the thief of time.
