Hello from the chill of the Waikato, NZ. This flying visit to celebrate my sister’s 40th was a big surprise to everyone but Lil’ Sis’ and the looks on people’s faces when the penny dropped was priceless!! So glad that I don’t live SO far away that a long weekend home isn’t out of the question… Oh that and ridiculously pleased that the fares were affordable! Thank heaven’s for a competitive market… (but sorry about the carbon footprint…)
I’ve just updated the O for Awesome sidebar – here’s a brief precis of this week’s picks!!
Image of the week is actually a gallery if images I found via Coudal’s Fresh Signals Feed (my no 1 source for things awesome) and just seems to sum up to me the wonder of children’s imaginative play – check out Journey to Everywhere by Jan van Holleben
Surf’s Up is a site called The Creators Project – cool to surf around and see what other creative individuals are getting into!! Some cool music and video and interesting people!
Video of the Week is some ‘tech-cute’ can I get an awwwww? AT-AT Day Afternoon
I’m still reading a Million Miles – but the CD on rotation this week is Technicolor by The Parachute Band. A churchy one for the uninitiated but some very cool stuff if that’s your bent…
Because I’m in NZ I’ve posted http://kiwifruit-the-blog.co.nz/2010/07/a-weekend-of-rellies-and-ralli.html as my featured image – just to give a shout out for one of my longest standing bloggy friends – and the http://sizzlesays.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/i-am/ who had the revelation this week that I hope everyone who’s ever felt small gets sooner rather than later in their life!
Edited to add, I have two lots of featured images – Fi’s who has me all nostalgic for nice wines on her balcony is a bonus!! Have a great week.
