On my last trip to Europe I was fortunate to visit the Belvedere building complex in Vienna on a clear sunny day. One of my favourite photos from that trip is the baroque palace and its mirror image in the water in front.
My friend Ash is a passionate advocate for cycling. What I enjoy is how he’s not negative towards cars and drivers the way some are, he just shows the positive aspects of cycling. I just love this one of riding around Brisbane that he’s recently posted to his YouTube channel.
When I travel I like to bring back souvenirs that will be used, not just looked at.
This knife from a trip to Kyoto, Japan, has “Peter” stamped in Japanese script on it. It’s used regularly and whenever I slice something up I’m reminded of the holiday.
I wasn’t very prompt at trading this in. I wonder if my niece will still honour it despite the must be used by date.
In this home I’m just the support act, the cat is the lead attraction. 🐈
I often reflect how an instrument that cost about $10 over 30 years ago is probably the most well used and oldest utensil in the kitchen.
Afternoon walks at sunset are good for the soul and a very pleasant way to wind out the weekend.
On Caturday, Ms Ali gets to nap outside while I read.
I’m going to be in so much trouble when I pick her up to go inside shortly.
I miss going to the markets near where I used to live. The small quantities this stall holder sold instead of larger jars were perfect and meant my spice rack had a lot of variety.
It was a very busy day when I visited the Court of the Sun King. The Hall of Mirrors at Versailles was very full but fortunately the beauty was above the crowds.
