Embrace the leg. 🐱

My nighttime beverage more often than not these days is a cup of tea rather than a glass of wine. I quite like this “Sleepy” tea.

When you’ve had a tooth out and still high on painkillers you too will sit and stare at the ceiling. 🐱

Beaches at the end of the day when you get that last flare of the sun are the best.

A beach view. Sand stretches out in front of the photographer with patches of water where the tide is still running out. The sky has a band of cloud with the sun flaring a yellow orange behind it.

Went out for dinner last night before seeing a show. We popped back in afterwards to have dessert and a nightcap. I went with the vanilla bean panna cotta with passion fruit and shortbread biscuit as the dessert least likely to need me to loosen my belt.

A vanilla white coloured soft almost cylindrical dessert sitting in a shallow plate with passion fruit pulp surrounding it and layered on top. Two small round shortbread biscuits are beside it and the plate is lightly dusted in flour.

A day in the life. Dinner and a show. Bananaland as part of the Brisbane Festival.

Live long and prosper. 🖖🏻

Another sign I’m turning into my father: just had an afternoon nap because I’m going out tonight.

A favourite thing to do when visiting family in my hometown is to take a drive up the Eungella range. You can stop at the pub near the top and you get a great view back down the valley. You can just make out the road leading back to the coast cutting through the green.

A view down a green valley. Tops of trees are in the foreground and the valley floor fills the middle with a white ribbon of road visible. There are low mountains across the right side and a cloudy sky.

It’s been a week. TGIF.

The life of a cat. Will fall asleep anywhere, anytime.🐱

A black and white cat called Ali asleep in an enclosed part of a cream coloured cat tree. Her head is hanging over the edge of the round hole into the enclosure with one white paw visible.

Disruption. That’s definitely what this creates to my planned walking route.

A large metal fence blocking a footpath. The fence has a sign “Danger. Construction site. Keep out.”

I was browsing through photos looking for a new image to use as my zoom background and came across this one of Hadrian’s Wall. I remember standing there and thinking about how it was once the furtherest edge of the Roman Empire and how very different the countryside would have looked back then.

An open field with a ruined stone wall starting in the lower right then cutting across the middle of the photo and off into the distance. A group of trees are in the distance on the crest of a low rise.

The nights have warmed up so time to pack this bit of fabric away until the head needs to be kept warm again.

A beanie that looks like the TARDIS from the tv show Doctor Who. It is coloured blue with white windows and a black stripe above them that reads “Police Public Call Box”.

An intense game of chase the ghost that only the cat can see has been underway for the last 10 minutes. 🐱

A black and white cat is on a platform on a cat tree that’s about 50cm off the ground. One paw is through a hole in the platform like the cat is swiping at something.

Puppy said woof! then I said oof! as he lunged at me playfully and nearly flattened me.

A light brown dog with white paws and a black and white nose sitting on the sand looking at the camera. One ear is standing straight up the other bent over. An orange leash leads back out of frame to the person holding the camera.

Sitting on her red throne with her arms folded up. A favourite position and I always assume I’m being judged, probably for the lack of food despite her insistent demands. 🐱

A black and white cat sitting in a large chair that has a red throw rug over it. Her front paws are crossed under her body and she is looking straight at the camera.

Impersonating a statue in the hope the gecko will come back. 🐱

A black and white cat sitting upright on top of a metal storage rack and looking intently at the ceiling.

A walk across the bridge and the horizon glowing as the sun sets. A nice way to wind out the day yesterday.

A view looking along a river, tall city buildings on the right bank and lower buildings on the left. The setting sun has the horizon a warm yellow orange colour.

No need to panic, I’ve been here inside the chair the whole time. 🐱
