This photo doesn't do justice to this little scene. The pretty chickens of Daylesford Organics pecking and strutting in their little chookie community, what a great setup with their mobile home allowing them to always have access to new areas & food while fertilising the ground. A perfect and picturesque arrangement. Lucky chooks!
When we were kids my mum & dad bought an old Swiss Italian house near Daylesford & we came up nearly every weekend and all the holidays. We always drove up the same way and passed this shop a million times. It took me a while to be able to say this name...
Korweinguboora....Kor-win-jee-boora! Now, you try! Bet you can't spell it without looking. I wonder what this aboriginal word means?
I stayed at my mums house in Fitzroy which is very close to the Housing Commission flats. There was a beautiful community event being held there which I went and watched for a little while. I'd read in the paper about a woman who was organising an opportunity for people from the flats and other locals to get together with dancing & a film night. There was such a great feel to this mini festival, a very relaxed and friendly vibe. I wish there had been more of this kind of thing when we were growing up in Fitzroy.
These girls were so captivating, their dancing so gorgeous and I wished my own girls were there to see them. From there I went to meet Carm for dinner at Mecca Bah. Yum! We had a great night, catching up with all our news, chatting about what's happening in each others lives. Carm is the best of friends, always funny & interesting & great to be with.
The next day I got to spend the morning with Charlotte & we went into the city looking for a new pair of shoes for her. Hanging out together, eating chocolate donuts and having a laugh was heaps of fun. Then it was time to head back to Daylesford. What a relaxing weekend, just what I needed!
Just before I go I was reading recently on a blog about the bitchiness in blogland. Do you know many bitchy blogs? I have only had one experience of this sort of thing but it was only one person & I chose to ignore her. I have found the complete opposite, lots of kind and open people who are creating a great supportive & creative online community. I also love the blogs that are real and authentic, the worlds & lives they describe are not always perfect & pretty and that's ok with me! We all have problems and ups and downs & I think it's good when we can share the harder parts of our lives too. What do you think? Hey, I'm a sucker for a great photo but I also love to read about people's thoughts, idea's, dreams, challenges. I love the way we can connect with each other, in blogland & in real life! Hope you are having an ace Monday, take care sweeties. I'm off to draw out a winner from my giveaway! See you soon xo
