I have spent all day, apart from doing the bookwork, cleaning, dusting, washing cars, hosing the whole house down, gardens, garage, etc. My kids had the day off school, as I just wasn't going to tempt fate and have them come home full of sinus, allergies or asthma.... So we just veged out all day inside, watching movies and playing XBox with all the doors loaded up with towels so the dust wouldn't get underneath. Here I thought I was being so smart, but no that red dust just came right on in, through our tiled roof and down through our downlights. You couldn't pay me enough to live out in the outback. Yuk!!!
Here is a pic I took yesterday of the dust storm, then again this morning just to show the difference. This old shed is in the 200 acres behind us... Looks very rustic in the red dust don't you think...

I created this album quite a while back in a cybercrop. The theme was something that you love about winter and you had to have paper weaving somewhere on your layout. No it may look easy, but let me tell you it can really test your patience. Good luck girls...
See you all at Medowie tonight!!

I even got a reprieve from cooking tonight. Grant decided that he was going to try out the new BBQ and cook a roast in it! Well, I have to say that is the last time I cook a roast, Grant now has the job! What a top job he did too! And no mess on the BBQ! Even better! Thanks Granto!
Well thats the end of my weekend! Great fantastic family weekend with perfect beautiful weather... Bring on next week!!!

He woke Sunday morning a little off colour, mum and dad went out for their Sunday drive in the Vette, and had lunch at Hinton Pub, when they got home Leroy hadn't even gotten out of bed. Sunday afternoon we went around to give him cuddles and pay him attention, and he didn't even move. Just layed there and blinked his eyes at us. Ohhh so sad!
Monday morning mum rang the vets to come and put him down at home. Mum and I both had a paw each, and showering him with kisses, cuddles and tears, while they put him to sleep. So going to miss you big fella!!! The angels can take care of you now...
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Didn't have the greatest of days at work today either, think all the stress, pain, etc has caught up with me and had a ripper headache. Finally took Jans advice and went home at 3pm. Went home, straight to bed to sleep it off. Lets hope for a brighter weekend and a phonecall real soon!

I really am grateful that I have scrapbooking as a part of my life where I can distract myself, lose myself and focus entirely on creation.. I have really needed this therapy lately!!! What do you like to do when you need to lose yourself and have time out????
