Today my word for the day is BUSY and yes I have been busy with lots of preparations for our Aussie Adventure. One of my jobs today was to sort through the pantry to work out which foods are to come along, which foods are to be left for Rachel and which ones are out of date and need to be tossed. It made me feel good to find I only had a couple that had to be thrown out. I would really love to hear what's kept you busy today.

Catch Up Time

I have been a bit slack with my Photo a Day challenge, so here are my catch up photos in a collage.
Day 7 - Dreamy - This tree in the fog looked as if in a dream.
Day 8 - On Your Plate
Day 9 - Tiny - These two trout were destined for my plate.
Day - 10 - A Place - Melbourne Central
Day 11 - Detail - I loved the detail in this pillar.
Day 12 - In the middle - Clare was in the middle.
Day 13 - View from my bed - Was ever changing on Rachel and my
               motorhome trip around Victoria Island in Canada.
Day 14 - Water - Is very relaxing to sit by.
Day 15 - Alone - My little man O'Shea not really alone on the beach.
Day 16 - My favorite Colour - Is actually purple, but nothing much else
               comes close to the colour of the sunrise.

Count Down

With only 19 days before Shane and I head off on or 12 month Aussie Adventure, we are now down to doing the last of the organisation. A couple of our first few nights have been booked, a lot of research has been done, the lists have been drawn up of the last minute jobs that need to be done and we are starting to pack up the house ready for Rachel, Luke, Clare and our new baby (due any day now) to move in. I would like to invite everyone to join us on our adventure via my blog updates. I may not be able to update every day due to some places not having Internet coverage but I will get online as often as I can. I  will also be keeping in touch via Facebook, Emails, Phone and Skype. So if you would like my addresses for any of the above please just contact me. I look forward to you joining us and would love some comments either on Facebook or on 53Buddhas.

Our Home for the next 12 months

She now has a name that means a lot to both of us - Myrtle

Medicine Wheel - April Message

Oh I must say I really love my April Oracle Card message from my Medicine Wheel 2012/2013. Who would have thought I actually picked this card for this month almost 12 months ago. With all that has happened in the past 4 months this card now sits perfectly with my life.
Card Meaning - Positive changes are coming. Old structures, beliefs, and ideas are falling away and will be replaced with vitality and new pathways. Soon you'll be seeing the world in a fresh way.
Your Soul wants you to know - Like the Phoenix that rises majestically from the ashes, a big change in your life is at hand. Your at the beginning, in the middle or at the completion of an enormous transformation in your life. Don't hold onto old structures and limited ways of thinking. Even if it looks as if your are in murky waters this is only the clearing that occurs just before rebirth. It's all for the highest good.
