A New Day

Beautiful Colourful Blossom on this photo that I took
Instead of a Basket of Flowers here we have a tree blown into this shape by the constant wind in and around Geraldton N.W. Australia…..it is an Acrylic Painting that I did from one of my Photographs..

Every Day is a new day for us to live and laugh and love and enjoy…. some days are not so good but life is what we make it. We need to get up each day to get on with the work we are meant to be doing. If we live alone or with a family we need to be pleased that we are alive to live another New Day.

Don’t let the wind blow away those thoughts and things that you need to do for today.

Remember Yesterday has gone and Tomorrow never comes so we have: TODAY……which is a New Day.

What are we going to do Today then? That is the question!

We all have to get up from our beds, get washed and dressed ready for the New Day….some of us like to pray first before we have our breakfast, others wait until later….and others do not think to pray but just get on with the daily chores to start with. However we all have a New Day each Day to do something with remembering that this New Day will never come again because then it will become Yesterday. How about that then?

Here is a link to one of my Books…hope you like it and can have a bit of fun with your family playing the game. It tells you inside the book how to play – you need at least two people. It is good to play in the car while driving to help keep the Driver alert and is a bit of fun for the passengers.

This is a book of Pen & Ink Drawings of Cats and is a Game for Young and Old to play together.

From the bible: Matthew: 24 verse 42. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

I Hope you have a Lovely Day Today.

A Good Memory

Can you see the busy Little Bee on the flower – this is on of my better photos. These Daisy Flowers grow close to the ground and make a lovely picture.

Today I thought we would have a sort of Poem about remembering things…. as we get a bit older we do tend to forget a few things and have to stand and think for a moment whether we a coming or going or where we have put something that we cannot find.

Then sometimes when we are looking for the lost item – we then may wonder what we are actually looking for. For some people it can be their glasses to hunt for – eventually finding they already have them on their face.

Maybe you have never gone into another room and stood at the door wondering why you are going in there to get something……and can’t remember what it was!!! Well, that day may one day come – you never know.

So best thing is to go back to where you were – look around and you suddenly may remember what you were going into the next room for, it may be a simple as that.!

Here is my Poem……. hope you like it:

I Just Remembered

I just remembered, did I forget to do that, or – did I do it and forget that I did it?

I forget now but if I do it now and  I have already done it, that means that I would have done it twice.

Best if I don’t do it now.  I may not have done it at all if I didn’t do it in the first place.

What a dilemma, why did I just think that I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.

Well I remember thinking that I should but I wonder if I did.

  The best thing is to go and look I suppose – now what was it that I think I forgot to do.

I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa and think about it later.

Do you like a Yummy Fruit Salad ?

This was one of our lovely Hanging Baskets.

That hanging basket has long gone now but I think it is lovely to take a photo sometimes of our different pot plants and flowers before they are gone.

Also it is good to keep a file on the computer to put our flower photos in. If you have never thought about that I think it is a good thing to do, to remember some of the beautiful flowers that we can grow in Hanging Baskets or photos of our Pot Plants.

For our Recipe today: Here is a copy of a Postcard I did with the Recipe on it for a Fruit Salad:

Something different using our beautiful fruit here in Carnarvon where we live.

Just Something Different for you today.

* I hope you have a lovely Day Today and maybe take a photo of a Special Flower to keep as a memory of it*

Lantana is so Pretty!

This is a close-up of Lantana growing in my Driveway.
It looks so pretty. However it does not do well when cut to put in a vase as it only seems to last a few days once cut.

I thought this photo would look nice instead of putting a photo of a Basket of Flowers on here today, the photo has come out very well as I am not the worlds best at taking photo’s but every now and then we seem to get a good one.

So I would encourage you today to take several photo’s of any special flowers that you have growing in your garden or maybe when you go for a walk….just a close-up sometimes can be very rewarding. Then if you save to your computer can be used to bless friends or others by printing out onto a card for them. If you take several the delete button is very helpful to take off the ones that are not so good. !!! Yes I have to delete quite a few.!!!

So – Lantana can look very nice in a display but may only last like I said just a couple of days before wilting.

The above basket of flowers was made to take to Church – the flowers are anchored down in Wet Oasis.

Beautiful Poinciana Tree

Lovely Shade from Poinciana Tree on our Driveway.

The Poinciana Tree is overhanging from my neighbour’s garden and has given us all this lovely shade and red blossoms on the pavers. Lots of seed pods still hanging from last Season. It is a beautiful spot to walk under and helps keep us cool from the 30 to 40 deg. heat. at this time of the year here in Carnarvon, Western Australia.

Here is a closeup photo of the Poinciana Flower

If picked to put in a vase, these flowers do not last very long, maybe a day or two but look very pretty if put in with some greenery.

Baked Egg Custard

Here is a Photo of the Lovely Passionfruit Flower.
This was growing in my garden followed by beautiful purple Passionfruit for us to eat and enjoy

Passionfruit can be eaten straight off the vine and can be used in many different ways.

  1. It is lovely to cut through the middle and eat the contents with a spoon.
  2. Also can scoop out the pulp and put over Ice-cream (best use Vanilla) to get the lovely taste of the Passionfruit.
  3. What about using a family size Pavlova putting cream on top and adding the Pulp of the Passionfruit on top of the cream.
  4. See picture below of Pavlova – for a lovely Afternoon Tea with friends or family.
  5. If you are used to making Lemon Butter it is good when cooking to add some Passionfruit Pulp to make a different kind of Spread for your toast or bread.
  6. You can of course make Passionfruit Butter on it’s own.
  7. Another way is put to the pulp (not too much) into your jug of Water of Lemon Water in the fridge and drink cold as a refreshing drink.

Covid 19….Corona Virus

Thank you for the video,  I know its just a game and after the lock – down  we will never be the same.

Most of us may be better  and some of us may be worse. But what on earth does it matter if we can talk like this on earth.

On a Video in our own house,  in the kitchen or the lounge – room, maybe in the bedroom or even in the bath. What does it really matter?

On here we can have a laugh. We can laugh or sing or any old thing! Some people dance to peculiar tunes,  they put their gyrating’s on for all to see on the public Video T.V.

While behind closed doors forgetting – really that we can all see. What a wonderful world the Lock-down can be.

I think now I’ll have a cup of tea. Wait a minute – is there more?
No I’ll just close the door.

Jessie. 9th. July 2020.

Well there we are then……let us be glad that we can laugh and sing to help us to keep well and happy during this awful pandemic time that is moving throughout the world. To look after our families our loved ones and ourselves..!

In a bowl – Mix everything together.

Wet hands and mould a small handful into a ball, flatten and press into the flour. Flour each side of your Patty. Put to one side and continue until all are ready. ……………………………………………..Heat Oil in Frying Pan and cook until golden brown on each side. Approx…5 minutes each side.

Passion Fruit Time

Here is a close up of a Passion Fruit Flower growing in my garden.

I thought this would be a nice photo to put here today as we now have Passion Fruit Season here.

Have put this on instead of a Basket of Flowers to start off the Blog today.

So – Recipes for Passion Fruit.

First of all we can just eat them straight from the Vine when they are fully ripe, just cut in half and scoop out to eat or – cut the top off and eat with a spoon like you would holding and egg.

Next: Well they go very well if you scoop out and put over the top of Vanilla Ice-cream. To make it more of a meal add Rice Bubbles to the dish, Honey and maybe some nuts. Or another Cereal that you prefer.

You can freeze the Passion Fruit Pulp in Ice Cube containers to use at a later time. Can drop one cube (or more) into your jug of Lemon Juice in the fridge, it makes a refreshing drink in the Summer months.

I hope you have a lovely Day today….here is a Flower for you today to say God Bless You.

Just a lovely arrangement.
