Yes I'm still here. And yes I have been reading your blogs and sometimes even commenting. But I haven't really had much to say myself
Life here on the home front is really great. Baby girl has come back to work part time with her dad and I get to play with my beautiful granddaughter while she is at the shed being the office girl.
It works out great as I can just message her to come over and feed melody then she goes back to work.
Wonderson is happy working hard just like his dad trying to get ahead in life.
But as for the rest of the world. What a mess
In the suburbs around ours there is a gang of youths terrorising everyone.
Car jacking's, violent home invasions, assaults have all gone up since this gang has formed.
Is relative new here. We had the occasional occurrence but now it's nightly and one just once or twice!
It's gotten so bad bands of men now patrol areas reporting suspicious people, cars or incidences.
And that's just our little part of the world
Then there is the whole rest of the world!
Terrorist attacks, shootings violent clashes.
It's all getting out of control.
And I'm torn. On the one hand I feel compassion for those fleeing war torn areas. For the mothers with children, the child brides sold off into marriage and slavery. Young boys taken from their homes and made to hate and fight and yes die for their cause.
I sit and cry tears of dispar of all the pain and abuse inflicted in this world.
But then I hear about the mass killings of innocent citizens going about their days
And the fear and anger engulfs me and I ask why.
And again tears begins to fall. But this time hot angry tears.
I don't know how to fix all th problems of the world. I'm only a mum and grandmother. I don't have a magic wand, or special powers
All I know is it's too painful to listen any more. But we are bombarded with these stories everyday.
There is no escape. The assault to our emotions is relentless.
It's affecting us all.
All I can do is try to insulate myself from the worst, and look for the good in every day.
This is getting harder and harder to do.
So I've remained silent. Trying to make sense of a world gone insane.
I don't know the answers. I only know things must change. For we are heading down a road that will only lead to more pain and hardship for everyone.
So for now I'll just concentrate on my little family. I will love them harder, hug them longer and try to project this into the community.
I pray it will get much better soon.
May everyone find love and happiness in their hears
Hubby was a hunny and took me to the nearby mountains and we had a play in the snow.
The arctic blast promised snow down to 300 meters. But we didn't get any where we live. So we had to to where the snow falls and boy was it falling
Here is hubby when we first got there. And you can see it is snowing a little at the time. But by fifteen minutes later. It was really heavy and they were getting ready to close the road we had a play and then left.
And here am I. Throwing a snowball at hubby.
We were like little kids lol
It was so nice to just get away from it all for a few hours and forget about everyone and everything.
The weather here in the south east of Melbourne has gone nuts. We are getting extreme winds from the South Pole and the temp is dropping. Today we are forecast to get snow down to almost sea level.
Yesterday afternoon hubby and I drove along the ocean road and took some videos of the waves and the winds
I don't know how to upload the videos so I've taken screen shots for you to see This wasn't even one of the big ones.
There were lots of people who had the same idea and we had quite the paparazzi happening lol
The wind was so bad hubby had to hold on to me while I filmed. And I'm not a small person.
Driving home I took these shots of th Sky. The colours were amazing and the movement of the clouds were mesmerising.
So this morning it's very cold and again the wind is blowing. I got up around five to make sure the fire had plenty of wood in it and I'm sitting in bed now waiting for the house to warm alittle before I get up
Going to be very cold and wet so if your affected stay warm and dry and maybe just stay inside and snuggle with someone if you can.
