Favourite Thing Friday

My favourite thing friday is actually 2 favourites.


Squid chillen in Nan's backyard


The first is the end of school holidays yeah.... 6 or was it 7 weeks is way to long... I am sure my hubby would not agree because he has to go back to work but I have had enough of having to find things to occupy the kids especially when the the weather has been too hot for any outdoor activity other than pool and trips to the beach which is packed at the moment.

I do love the extra hour I get in the morning before work so that I am not rushed for my second favourite which is morning walks down to the beach especially really early morning walks when there isn't many people around and it is quiet and there is a cool sea breeze just like todays.  The sky had a pretty purple haze over the ocean and it was very still.


Local wetland this morning


Its better now I have someone to go with .... it had been too hot all week, and I had woken up too late to go early but yesterday she decided it was cool enough to go and she grabbed her lead from the laundry and put it by the front door.  This morning I had to wake her up to go lol.

Head on over to Mrs P's for more FTF.

Beautiful sunrise. Hope you get in a few more walks before the holiday ends.

Nice favorites ... especially the early morning walks. Wish I lived close enough to a beach to do that -- I'm a little envious.

As a retired teacher I'm sorry for the kids and teachers going back to school in the heat. I have very bad memories of trying to do any schoolwork while it is 35C +.
On the other hand walking in the cool morning air sounds delightful!
Cheers

That sounds so lovely...early morning walks on the beach...I adore Nan's backyard. I could happily chill out there too.

Lovely FTFs and great photos. I'm a teacher and not looking forward to going back to work in the heat!

That dog of yours is all legs!

I cant wait for the kids to go back to school because it means I'll have a week where I can shop without dodging ankle biters.

Are your kids looking forward to going back to school? I used to love the start of the school year...

a morning walk on the beach with a happy dog ... kids in school ... both of those favorites sound refreshing.

i wish i could take some of the warm weather off your hands ...

aww, such a nice favorite. She's a cutie and I'm sure she'll be bugging you soon enough to go all the time.

If I lived near a beach, that would be my favorite also. Nice you have a good companion to go with you.

Look at those long skinny legs. She has really grown. I need to get myself into gear and get walking.

Lovely sunrise. As we don't have daylight savings here, sunrise is way too early this time of the year.
