Time flies

Well, I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks. But maybe I’ll get back into a rhythm now.

I had a nice Easter weekend which was a blend of old and new traditions. Including family, food, drink, and nature. Oh and some solid driving practice.

Placement finished last Friday. I’m truly thankful for the experience.

Now I have no uni for two weeks, to refresh and reflect.

Here are some of the things I’ve been getting up to lately:

A chestnut horse (brown body, black mane and tail) leans its head over a wire fence. It is surrounded by yellow grass and green tree foliage. A bright teal-aqua fern contrasted against brown leaf litter

Description board telling readers about the Domino TrailAn old rail bridge in the woods, with a fallen log in the foregroundThe same rail bridge but with sunlight shining through from aboveDucks on the bank of a lake. The lake, with shadowed water and greenery surroundingFood on a plate: chicken drumsticks, boiled potato with skin on, and steamed veg like carrots, kale, bok choi. Flowering shrubs with lorikeets in them. Tuna and veggies in a sauce, with bread around the outside of the plate. A cafe menu booklet. It’s red with black circles and writing reads “Abbey Road”Beach foreshore with pale yellow sand and blue waves with white foam. A jetty is off to the left. View of Melbourne CBD from a bridge on a major road. The skyscrapers are distant, the rails of the bridge are sturdy iron. The sky is blue. Colourful salad of couscous, carrot, capsicum, cooked kale sits in a white bowl. Beside it to the left is a big knife, beside it to the right is a silver fork.A large crimson rosella sits in teal-silver ferns and nibbles.Shot of construction work over a road, laying rail tracks, a bridge, and concrete structures for a station. A crane is in the image.Trees and grass in a nature preserve.A bird rests on the window and is silhouetted by the sun. Another bird is swooping at it.

Chicken schnitzel, noodles and veggies like capsicum, kale, zucchini and carrot.

Captioning these images doesn’t appear to be working on my mobile, so here are some descriptions:

A horse and ferns spotted on a bushwalk; the board describing of the trail we used; a disused rail bridge with and without a makeshift light filter (person’s hand sufficed). The over-bright shot made me think of the idea of a “voice from the heavens”.

Next are ducks and their lake; then a dinner – chicken drumsticks, boiled potato and veggies; followed by a shot of birds (lorikeets I think) in the flowering shrubs.

A menu from the Abbey Road café in St Kilda; a shot of the water there; and a view of Melbourne city as we went back over a bridge on Punt Road.

A salad I made for a lunch get together yesterday (cherry tomatoes, carrot, capsicum, cooked kale, with couscous); two crimson rosellas in ferns munching; a shot of some level crossing removal works happening near me; followed by indigenous flora in a nature preserve.

Finally, two birds having an argument on my window; before chicken schnitzel, noodles and steamed veggies for dinner.

Have a pleasant evening, all.
