Hippies, Cobb and Fog

As I have mentioned a couple of times, I first started writing my blog because I lived with very quiet people at the time and as I am a bit of a talker it was my way to get the words inside my head out there. That may have been the reason I started but just today I have realised the reason I am still blogging. For me, it’s my blog, the comments that are left for me and the blogs I read that are my therapy to help me deal with my grieving process. It is so amazing when I am feeling down or have a question in my head that I can’t quite deal with; somehow I get the answers I need from you my blog friends. I would just like to say – thanks and I class you as one of my “mates”. Hey who needs to pay for therapy – not me!

Today Shane and I went to St Andrews Community Market, which would best be described as a “Hippy Market”. This market is on every Saturday morning and I think it has been going for over 30 years. It has quite a range of stalls including Reiki, Clothes - both new and second-hand, Crystals, Really old tools (junk to me but treasure to Shane), Food and so much more. It is a really interesting market to wander around, today was a bit damp with the drizzling rain but it was still good. Before leaving we went to the St Andrews Bakery and bought a loaf of their yummy Cob Loaf. I was so looking forward to getting home and having a slice smothered with butter and vegemite. To all my non Aussie visitors – yes I was raised on vegemite and have it everyday without fail. We took the long way home through the Kinglake National Park. Up until February 2009 this National Park was a wonderful green lush park. But in Feb 2009 it was ravaged by the worst bushfires we have ever seen. The dead trees have started to shoot their new greenery but all I could get a shot of was the fog. Oh well I don’t mind I love fog too.

“Davine Time” update: Having a little nap this afternoon and getting a
lovely phone call from “Angel Michelle” that was a great boost.
