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.

A Verse re: Corona Virus -plus Sausage-meat Patties.

I thought this Basket is a nice arrangement, manly Artificial Flowers with some Geraldton Wax and some dried Flowers.

I do hope you and your family are keeping safe from the Covid 19 (Corona Virus). I have written a bit of a poem that you may like to read.

Here it is…………….

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..!

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.

“Carnarvon Favourite Recipes”

I now have a new Book that is on the Amazon site. You may like to check it out and pass on to any friends or family that may be interested. It is a game that can be played with Adults and children, especially good on long car journeys or just for fun to help children with their learning.

It tells you how to play the game on the inside pages.

I hope you have a Lovely Day today – maybe find a Flower to put in a vase in your Kitchen to look at while doing the dishes???????????

Watermelon Time

I think this Basket of Flowers looks lovely. Mostly they are artificial with just a few fresh picked ones in with them. They are sitting on the settee on our back patio for me to take this photo in the morning sunshine.

The heading of this Blog is Watermelon Time. So here is a Recipe a bit different maybe to what you are used to. I hope you like it as it is used to go with cold meat, lettuce and other salad things.

Recipe:

WATERMELON SALAD

Ingredients: Watermelon, Mint (fresh or dried) Spring Onions/Scallion or Spanish or Red Onion. Which ever you prefer.

Method:

Cut Watermelon into balls or 2 cm. dice, place in large serving bowl, add the chopped up Onion, sprinkle in the fresh or dried mint to taste.

Mix well and serve cold with sliced cold Meat, Chicken or Fish.

Cover and cool in fridge until needed.

This is nice and also very refreshing on a hot day, you can of course use it as an extra salad with your B.B.Q food. It will keep well in the fridge for a couple of days. Just remember to cover the container when in the fridge to help keep it fresh.

Here is a Bible verse: Proverbs: 20 v 7. The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.

Here is a Poem:

Little one sleeping there,

Tender Love Divine.

Little one Sleeping there,

Are you truly mine?

Has God given you to me,

Tender Love Divine?

Has God given you to me?

Yes, – You’re truly mine.

There are some really good Recipes in this Book promoting Carnarvon Produce here in Western Australia. Hope you enjoy it.

Have a Lovely Day Today.

Sausage-meat Hamburger

A nice different arrangement in a Jug. Geraldton Wax are the background flowers and I can’t remember what the Red flower is called cut from a tree in my front garden. The small green birds love to suck the Nectar from these lovely flowers.

I thought this photo of the flowers in my special jug looks quite good. It is a reminder that you can display your flowers to look really nice in a special Jug that you may have instead of using a flower vase. it makes a a change from the normal everyday vase that you may use.

If you do not have a large size jug a visit to your local charity store may have just the one that you are looking for. They do appreciate any time you may have to pay them a visit to purchase something from their shop.

Here is a Recipe for today:

Sausage-meat Hamburger:

1 – Small round packet Sausage-meat (Cold from Fridge) Slice into Portions (Hamburger Size)

Coat in Seasoned Flour with Mixed Herbs & White Pepper

Fry in small amount of Oil till cooked on each side.

Serve with Salad or Cooked Vegetables for dinner or put into Hamburger Rolls to eat.

This is a nice quick Recipe to make for a meat dinner and easy for children to eat.

Here is a Poem:
