Spring eyebrows

Pink blossoms.At the moment I have everything I wanted. Which is Spring on earth and the eyeballs to witness it. My eyebrows are returning. The hairs are coming back nice and black. The hair on top of my head is also sprouting, along with buds and flowers and bits of moss with its own tiny flowers. Here in Bathurst yellow flower season (daffodils, wattle) is giving way to pink flower season (ravishing masses of blossoms on street trees).

The skipping continues at my little friend Marcus’s school. Today is a skip-off. He’s been practicing, and is now up to 113 skips before the rope snags around his legs.

RETLast Sunday we joined the March Australia event in Bathurst, taking along a large sign and our house guests from Canberra. In Australia we can get our energy from renewable sources. We don’t need to bugger up the Great Barrier Reef building coal export terminals.

    Hooray for spring eyebrows. I have a lovely image of your hair sprouting flowers and mosses as well! Tracy and spring have sprung as one!

    Loving that spring spirit….Hooray for Tracy!
    Probably shouldn’t wish – “May your eyebrows be thick and bushy”, though? According to Chinese Face Reading…. thick bushy eyebrows mean “strongly mentally active”; or possessing
    a ferocious intellect…. and the proud owner being a powerful leader, or business person.
    Maybe I should…..? Love, anyway xxxx

    There is such poetry in your recovery.
    We are just home after 10 days at Nepean.
    Bit early for lyric poetry here, but it will come…
