Thankful Thursday - Glorious Weather
It's Thursday yet again (is anyone else's weeks just flying by?) and it's time to be thankful.
After a rough night I could say I am thankful for coffee but that's pretty much a given in my life these days, even when Punky has a good night!
What I am thankful for is this glorious weather we've been having in Sydney. The weather that is so nice that Dave and I remarked about the fact that we were sitting on the lounge at 9:30pm last night with no jackets or shoes on, something we haven't been able to do for a while.
It meant that while I was getting up and down every 5 minutes between 3 & 4:30am I wasn't freezing and having to put my trackies and a jacket over my PJ's. It was nice!
And the best thing about this fabulous weather, aside from getting to hang out at the park and let Punky experience sitting on the grass for the first time, with no protection from a blanket(!) is the later sunsets and being able to go for a walk in the afternoons when Dave gets home. In fact that is another thing to be thankful for, Dave being on day shift for the month and being able to live 'normal' people's lives for a little bit. Well, as normal as we get anyway!
It's also meant that I can take lots of photos while hanging outside and having the awesome iPhone camera is another thing to be thankful for. I now have a decent camera on me at pretty much all times and I can snap away whenever the inspiration hits me. In 3 weeks of having the phone I've taken over 200 photos! Can I hear you say shutterbug?!?!
So I'll leave you with some of the pics I've been snapping while enjoying this glorious weather.

|The colours in the sunsets have been amazing the last few weeks and this was one of the first ones I captured on the iPhone...did I mention I love that thing?|
So, what are you thankful for this Thursday?
