I did intend posting sooner…but where has the week gone!

And it is so cold…after spending 3 weeks in the tropics

in shorts and t-shirt, sunny temperatures, the cold weather

is a bit of a shock.

…this is where we had dinner one night!

It was just a beautiful location…it could not be more perfect!

The restaurant is called Far Horizons at Palm Cove…

just north of Cairns!

beautiful location, beautiful food…loved every minute

of it…the sun eventually went down and we could no longer

see the water… just candle light and palm trees!

***

this week I have been settling back into routine…

just need to find more time to blog and sew…

haven’t managed to fit in any sewing!

to much washing to catch up, vacuuming, shopping,

lawn mowing, meals, etc.…

the weatherman last night promises warmer temps next week

…hope he is right!
