Life of Riley

" Upon me soul Riley, you're doing quite well". ~ Pat Rooney



Currently I am living the life of Riley, but only because I am on vacation from work. This morning my husband and I went for a walk along a track the local council keeps clear for people who enjoy walking. The track runs for about 10 kilometres. It is an unusual feature in a rural area.



After our walk we drove into town for breakfast. The Bruce Highway passes directly in front of our current favourite coffee shop  and we enjoy watching the many caravans that go past. Simple stuff, no? However it is a change from the work-a-day world and I am enjoying the relative freedom that accompanies being on holiday. 

This afternoon I planted some lettuce and silver-beet. Tomorrow I hope to do some work on my compost system as it was terribly neglected during our hot, dry summer.

    1. Thanks Jay. The look of the path changes depending on the section. Some of it is like walking through forest, other parts are just like walking through your average acreage neighbourhood.

  5. "The Life Of Riley" A long time, since I have heard that phrase. :-))))

    What a lovely place to walk! I love any area, with some running water. A stream... A river... A pond even. :-)

    Enjoy the rest of your Holiday!!!!

    1. Thanks Luna. It has been a lovely day today. The walking path changes quite a bit from forest to more open areas.

  6. A change is as good as a holiday, but even better when you actually ARE on holiday. ;)

  7. It's lovely that you are finding the joy in little special things while you are on holidays Sherri. Even if you don't go away, holidays can easily just slip away, so a few small treats makes the time memorable. Enjoy the remainder of your break.

    1. Thanks Sally. Today was another lovely day of just pottering around home in the morning and spending time with neighbours this afternoon.
