Weekend Horoscope

13th April, 2019

My horoscope for the upcoming week
courtesy of Oscar Cainer: 

Cancer the Crab. 

Your Week Ahead:  Breaking news !  Due to this week's Astrological Blue Moon, you're being transported into a different dimension. You're living in a universe where everything looks and feels the same as it did, but certain factors have been altered beyond recognition. Okay, that might sound a bit fantastical. But, it's a fair enough evaluation of the scenario you find yourself facing this week. It's as if an ethereal spirit being is watching you with the ability to change things to suit your aims. Just be careful what you wish for. It might come true.

A drive to Coominya, obviously through Fernvale. 

 Driving across the Wivenhoe Dam wall. 

Comorant Bay picnic area, Wivenhoe. 

Sam's turn to cook dinner tonight. 
He prepared a wonderful NABE. 
Certainly great presentation and taste ...

April 9

9th April, 2019 

The weather has returned to hot again. 
And also humid .... most unseasonable, methinks. 

I can't wait ! 

Tuesday, April 2, 2019



April has arrived, the second quarter of the year is already upon us. 
After such an oppressively hot and humid Summer in Queensland, 
the weather has suddenly become Autumnal, thankfully.

21st March, 2019

It was the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere today. 
San Kan Shion
3 days cool, 4 days warm

Here it is not Autumnal weather whatsoever, just hot 'n humid
with two massive cyclones.   Like what's happening with the weather ??

new post

I received a "return gift "  from Hashimoto Noriko sensei in Fukushima.
Plus a lovely handwritten letter, in box capitals nonetheless .... how wonderful. 
Thank you Noriko ! 

For White Day ( a Japanese Custom )  Sam thoughtfully purchased some white flowers. 
They were a big hit. LOL 

And a White Day Dinner was had by all .. 

23rd March, 2019
A Japanese houseguest arrived for the weekend. 
She lives in Senoue Village and is studying on the Gold Coast. 
Her father is my friend. 

Dinner was outside on the terrace. 

24th March, 2019

A little sightseeing; the hot and humid days continued unfortunately. 

Mt. Cootha Lookout.

Eight years ago ... 

Monday, 11th March, 2019

It is 36 degrees Centigrade here today, and it's Autumn. 

Soooo very humid. 

Quite a contrast to the weather we all experienced 8 years ago. 

Tonight's candle ....
