Back from Holidays

Its amazing how rested you can become in such a short time when things just go well!  My last post I shared some  of Glenlyon Dam..... and I thought I'd share just a little more, plus a flower for Wednesday.  Here I am in Lyn's Home (my penfriend from Tenterfield), working on my One Flower Wednesday Hexies

When we stayed with our friends Colleen and Brendan in Brisbane, their cat cuddles took a liking to Pete.  Everytime Pete was around, Cuddles was right there with him!  Not bad for somebody who is not usually a cat person LOL
 Then the biggest surprise came when I received notification to say I had been nominated, and won a Hero Award
I had been taking part in the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation Program, and set up a Facebook Group for those girls over 50yrs that were doing it as well.   I was unable to make it to Sydney to receive the award on stage , but luckily the girls from Brisbane had organised a time for us to meet up in person at Southbank! 

 Nice Time out in the boat fishing............. shame we didn't catch anything!

But we did see this eagles nest high up in the gum trees above one of the large banks in a  secluded area of the lake.

But all good things must come to an end, and before long it was time to make the trip back home. Coming back we went via the New England Highway Until we got to here and then turned towards the Newell!  With so many signs to various places, I thought of all my blogging friends, my Facebook Friends, My Snail Mail friends that live in so many different places, and waved to those of you whose towns we saw signs to.

And as you can see, we were back just in time for One Flower Wednesday........... this time with 3 lovely little flowers to show.....

I'm catching up after a long blog break. It is good to hear you had such a restful time on holiday. My nephew and family will be leaving for Adelaide on 02/11/14. I will miss them much. I know they will send us lots of pictures. Do you use Facebook in Australia? I don't know how wide-spread it is so pardon my ignorance.
Awesome award! Congratulations!
