So, Kane, Matt and I went on a big road trip a week ago, including a kite day at Brunswick Heads, a quick visit to Byron Bay, and this little spot at Burleigh Heads on the way home back to Brissy. I particularly like the water flow in the foreground over the rocks on this one :>


I love South East Qld & Northern NSW!!

Happiness is like a perfume, you cannot pour it all on others without allowing a few drops to fall on yourself.

Have a happy week friends and thank-you for the visit ..

Rainy here again today.... I needed a little something to perk me up.


Happy Friday!

Happy weekend!

Happiness can come in so unexpected ways.

I hope you all find yours, no matter how tiny it presents itself, the important is how big it feels inside.


See you in 2012. Italy here I come.


Thank you all for you kind comments. I wish you a Happy Holidays.

even better...

"Finding happiness is like finding yourself. You don't find happiness, you make happiness. You choose happiness. Self-actualization is a process of discovering who you are, who you want to be and paving the way to happiness by doing what brings YOU the most meaning and contentment to your life over the long run."

For some, it is as simple as making splashes and bubbles on Happy Fence Friday (HFF). I am sure I have a real HFF photo somewhere in the library but sorry, I could not look for one before the end of the day. Nevertheless, I hope you will like the big smile of this bufflehead and the splashes and bubbles he is creating. Hope you are having a great weekend. Press L for a larger view.

✿ Blog:

When you smile a beam of happiness come shining through onto people near you, when you laugh a wave of joy come crushing in onto friends around you. And when you do smile and laugh, remember it is not only you whom you have brought the joy and laughter to.

Happiness is like a butterfly.

The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.

But if you turn your attention to other things,

It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The greatest happiness you can have is

knowing that you do not necessarily require happiness.

- William Saroyan

----- Happiness is not a destination, it's a way of life -----


Happiness is just outside my window

Would it crash blowing 80-miles an hour?

Or is happiness a little more like knocking

On your door, and you just let it in?


I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs

I packed some things just what I need, only bare necessities

Asked Mrs. Walsh to feed my cat, call landlord Tate to tell him that

I'm going home where my people live, I need a little bit of happiness, yeah


(Song by Jonathan Jeremiah)

Happiness is a sunny springtime walk in the woods & your favourite ball to play with! The weather has been fantastic all week & suddenly the woods are full of colour, as the plants grow & wildflowers bloom. I don't think Flynn cares much at all about the wood anemones, celandines & bluebells but he's been enjoying the sunshine & longer afternoons to spend outside!


I'll need to replace that poor old ball soon though, it looks fine here but this week, the squeak has died & it's gained a hole. Given how very intense & enthusiastic he is about playing with them, it amazes me how careful Flynn is with his toys & how long he makes them last... My older lad Barney has always taken great joy in chomping on & ultimately shredding toys (even the supposedly "indestructible" types are often broken in minutes) but Flynn is really careful - even cheap, flimsy balls bought for £1 at the supermarket last ages. He's even still got a few toys that he came with when I adopted him, over 2 years ago. Good boy, Flynnie :)

What is happiness for you? Have a nice saturday, thank you : )

Have a great new week everyone. I have an air guy coming over shorty to look at my unit, so I will catch up with everyone after he leaves.

“The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love

and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is

our own sense of well-being.”

Have a HAPPY day my FRIENDS!!!


For Window Wednesdays (


Sitting in my trailer with my puppy dog - looking out at the peaceful surroundings and watching my hubby fishing out of his canoe. That's happiness! :)

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

"Success is getting what you want.

Happiness is liking what you get."

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr., American author


“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

Nathaniel Hawthorne
