Spending my Time



Over Easter I spent some time at work and at home. A good balance. At home we live by the tides. I always love coming home and seeing what the tide is doing and whether or not I can squeeze in a swim or a canoe ride with my daughter. Lucky for me I got the chance to do so. Hope you all had a great Easter.

  2. Hello Simone, I have still been reading but not commented for a awhile. Sounds like you had such a calm and loving holiday You deserve it. I was so inspired by all the work you did at the time of the floods. Pity I dont live in Brissie to hop into your shop.

    I used to live in Patonga in a tiny old fibro. Everytime I came around the bend at the top of the hill, my mind would check out the tide. It paced the rest of my day. Our canoe is still chained on up Patonga creek. A little reminder to keep going back.

    xo have a good week

  3. Spending time by the water is the best way to relax and you have the most beautiful home right on the water....perfect for sneaking in a little relaxing when you can. Happy Easter Simone.

  4. Nice to hear you had fun. :) I would love to have a canoe ride or a good swim, but because of the colder weather these weeks isn't yet possible. Lucky you. :) Have a nice week.

  7. Hi Simone-

    Totally envious - I dream about being able to jump in the water and kayak on a whim - lucky you - someday for me. It looks like the perfect way to spend some time with your daughter.

  10. Oh I'm jealous! I miss being by the coast so much! Though canoeing would probably lead to drowning where I'm from, it's far too rough, Your Easter looked like lots of fun xxx

  12. How wonderful to have those choices. We spent time with a friend and her family on the lake last summer in New York. The kids had such a great time in the canoes (even when they flipped them :) and on the paddleboats. In fact, we didn't hear from them for hours ... just the sound of laughter and talking between friends. Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday. Tammy

  16. The view from your deck is spectacular! It is the perfect place to relax and it is such a lovely thing to go out on the water like that! Also I finally made it up to your store! I bought some gorgeous material and met your lovely sister! I have already made some cushions up too (I was so excited!). I wanted to finish them before I went back to school! Have a wonderful week!

  25. I love getting out in our kayaks on the river and have been hoping to do it one last time before we move. It's been snowing here though this week so I can't see that happening unless the weather changes soon! :)

    I used to do the same when we lived by the ocean. I would walk out to the balcony stare at the ocean and say, "today it's going to be a good day!"

    have a wonderful weekend!
