'Weekly Wishes.......'
- a strong desire or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world

We were so lucky to visit Venice in Italy a few years ago.....

It seems so long ago now
I could go back tomorrow......
Flowers for Friday

I grew some garlic recently and was rewarded with these little dainty blooms too!
May little surprises come your way this weekend!

Let me tell you about Sams family and their birthdays.....
There are alot of birthdays celebrated each year as we gather at someones house for a BBQ.
As the boys prepare the meat,
we start on the dip and bikkies and cheese and chips that we eat our way through,
too many soft drinks for the kids,
we have a few 'drinks' too,
then out comes the couple of salads,
and (always way too much) meat
and the eating continues when we should have stopped after the nibbles!
And we are full.
And that should be the end of our eating.
But then,
 out comes the sweets......
And again,
way too much!
A few slices,
peppermint slice,
a caramel slice
(that Sam always, always steals a few pieces and trys to pretend to the kids that he hasn't!)
Sometimes a store bought cake,
Then the home made birthday cake.
Always really nice,
and we continue eating when we should of stopped after the meat and salads.....
So last weekend was Sams sister Kathryns birthday
and this was the rainbow cake that she made.
Really, really good.
But this birthday gathering was different.
We made sure we got a lift to Kathryns.
And we ate way too much.
Then we walked the hour and a half home along the rail trail.
And it hurt.
But it was lovely.
And a few days later
we felt amazing after our big walk.
Christmas is at Kathryns this year.
Maybe a big walk home is on the cards again.....

A long weekend for me and all I have done is sit and eat!
Sometimes by myself.
All the way out to Anglesea at the lovely McGains Nursery.
Here was a hot chocolate and a (very big!) slice of Apple and Olive Oil cake with Maple frosting,
oh golly.....
it was nice...
Sometimes Nan came along with me.
Off to Cartel Coffee in Breakwater.
A little bit trendy
and lots of loud Spanish music,
although a little too loud for us oldies!
More hot chocs for me and coffee for Nan,
And Pork Sliders and chips to eat.
A bit yum.
And we discovered a new little place to drink the afternoon away
in East Geelong
where we admired the blue and orange color scheme,
which was really gorgeous!
And thought,
wouldn't it be nice to have a little cake and coffee shop of our very own......
And we chatted and chatted 
about all sorts of things.......
I love spending time with my Nan
and want to wish her the most happiest of birthdays for tomorrow.
And thank her for sitting and eating with me on our weekends!!!
(and thankyou again for the Chocolate Ripple Icecream you made for me and Sam! A little bit sensational!!! Oh golly, so good!!)

Flowers for Friday
Hoping you all have a lovely weekend!
