Nostalgia ....

This is a range ...I found yesterday..
For Icecream...
There is also Dixie Cups... 
what are they some of you wonder...
back when the boy in a uniform would appear at interval 
with a tray strapped to his shoulders
selling refreshments
as dixie icecreams..

As my work has piled up more & I so need breaks that take me away & give the body some time to unwind
I take around 2 hours & go..........
Like a bird freed from a cage...
This week it has been to the movies  
I saw Blue Jasmine & enjoyed it.
Maldon is not 25 km from me ...
so I take a little country refreshing drive
to the old town..
where I find the best newsagent...
Much Ado..
I also found a sweet beautician who rides a red vespa ...
in a little lane..
Just near my gluten free bakery shop...
Now I am kind of decided where I shall explore with my camera..in the warm soft spring sunshine
au revoir

Flowers belong also to the soul

I had this need for flowers...
It was spring...it is the awakening after winter..
Where flowers are in abundance..
So I went to the nursery...late one afternoon 
Strolled around...
then did that again...
I selected these lovely roses & some azaleas..
a rogue zucchini plant suitable for pots.!

I have placed them into a tub...
they do look so lovely clumped together..

Good for the Soul

Italian Nesti Dante soaps 
have the most divine perfumes..
So fine, 
so acute, 
so warming always to my senses.

I took to using these soaps 
around 10 years ago..
I spoil myself every morning
as I step into the warm shower..
reach for the soap..
It transports me...it aids my well being for the day to begin
anytime after that I walk by the bathroom..
I am again transported..
I take the ends of the soap 
place them in my travelling soap box..
So I am never without my beautiful soul soother.

It's Time Off

I am under some illusion that I have caught up on my work..
it is not the case....
But a little time out of a busy day never hurt...
I have done some work in readiness for a house inspection tomorrow...
( needed that now....like a hole in the head !! )
Got these oranges & lemons  especially..
I had visions of a vast basket full..
but seeing I don't eat citrus ...
As good as a bunch of flowers though...
 I have added some more asparagus & shallots to my bouquet
of vegetables in a large white jug.
Such a pleasing sight every time I gaze apon it...
I just love this way to store some of the veges..
 On the way back from posting parcels this morning
& after having a good wicked giggle with Michelle who was doing my posting...
I went the long way home via the edge of the city to see what the
New Freedom Gluten Free bakery had in the shop..
See this delicious gluten free chocolate muffin !!!!
It was as wonderful to eat as it was to look at!
I also got 2 bread rolls with sesame seeds on top & oh my oh my
they were like my 20 +years  memory of what gorgeous wheat bread was like..
This guy is good !!!
