Maybe it’s Monday


Hi guys..i just realised this is my 400th post! and not a roo in sight!
Well tis Monday and i am going through some pics from the weekend..doing my tiny head in.
Saturday i had a lovely visit from Sharon from Gentlestitches and apart from making the worst batch of scones ever…go figure we had a lovely chat and some brownies and a walk around the property…the roos stayed hidden..dang..i forgot to take pics too!
The furries posed for some for Aunty Sharon though..bless em.
Yesterday we headed off to the Castlemaine State Festivals last day at the botanical gardens..a much better place to hold it..it was full of food stalls,craft and music..and of course doggies.
We then grabbed a coffee and headed to Cairn Curran where i hoped to get some more Pelican shots..but boats and jetskis were there so i guess the Pelicans took off..we did meet some pups though and dangled our feet in the water.
I bought home some driftwood for the boys and a huge Pelican feather for the girls..who batted it sniffed it and loved every bit..Forrest wanted to eat it!
So here are some pics i took..i am not really happy with them..do not know why…kinda worried i may be spending too much time looking at them and picking faults..or i am losing my mojo..have a great Monday folks πŸ™‚

  7. Congratulations on your 400th post! Those milestones are important to grab hold of to feel good about you! I totally enjoyed this post all the way through. Now if you don’t really like the pics, that is a sign you are about to go into something new. What I mean, you will see how something will change how you take images. At least that is how it happens with me. (((HUGS))) Amy

    • Thank you so much Amy..i think i am too busy looking for fault..maybe because i am expecting fault…ah childhood hang ups πŸ™‚ and thankyou i am so glad you enjoyed the post πŸ™‚ hugs Bev xxx

      • Ah, Bev, there you go. The first step to awareness for self-empowerment, is recognizing where change must come. Fault finding … OH how I am familiar with that one. Just today I told someone that one of the posts I have up today I skipped an entire step for the editing process. I looked, said, they are good enough, and went no further. Now I could have done even a better job, but, they are good just as is. My point … I stopped myself from overdoing, when I was not feeling well. That is a BIG step for me, and it also felt so good in beginning to loose this perfectionist streak I have in me always trying to measure up to the impossible at times. I’m saying all this because, if I can do it, so can you. When we loose this inner critique, we will learn how to relax more and be more like kids. BIG (((HUGS))) Amy

  8. 400 posts ……. well done!! Your pictures look great to me so just keep postin’ ’em and stop looking at ’em for so long. Mum reckons if you look at anything for long enough you’ll find fault. Except when she looks at me of course!!
