This morning I sat outside and drank tea. The sky is blue. I watched the birds. And it felt good!

"Tell me everything, " I asked.....

Good morning!

Time for my next bohemian blog post. As my week becomes busier I won't have a chance so today I will indulge....

This morning I spent a half hour drinking tea outside. As I stepped onto the as yet unfloored beams of my back verandah the gorgeous humid southern hemisphere spring air hit me.

Today it is good to be alive.

Precariously balancing barefoot on beams, I made my way across to an old couch..also balancing on beams. In our impatience to enjoy our new back verandah we set the couches up before we added the floor!

Already I have enjoyed some bohemian moments in this new space.

This morning
I sat drinking tea
the feel of the air
on my skin

The sky is so blue this morning.

My place....

Here's a taste of Babette's Feast. A movie that an impressive bohemian lady introduced me to in the 1980's.


  1. Good for you. I wish my backyard was more secluded.

    I've always loved Babette's Feast. Beautiful.

  2. Thank you for this and the clip of Babette's Feast. Your place looks so comfy and inviting. We lived all fresco all summer in various states of neighbours to contend with but now and then a strayed battalion of soldiers, war paints and machine guns and all or a odd rambler on his way to Santiago de Compostella :-)

  3. My friend Kriston wrote that which first came to my mind upon reading excepting pride in ones own physic and being one with the earth.

    We live in an urban area, but I find it still dense population wise and the close proximity to my four backyard neighbors, but sometimes I just don't give a damn.

    There are a number of wonderful films were the subject is food like 'Babette's Feast' and if your interested send me an email and I'll give you the list.

    Warmest regards

  4. I'm with ya on the Irish breakfast tea! I love a cup every morning... you showed some guts sitting out there topless...wish i had the guts to try that! Thanks for the follow over @ maggies secret garden. This garden sits right on top of two really close neighbors on that side of the house would shit if they spotted me out there topless. Out front on the other neighbor across the street would be enjoying himself. Although when i think clearly about it. Who the heck would be interested in my hanging bananas anyway? Love your blog...count me in!

  5. Thankyou you all for your comments. I have great pleasure reading them, a few laughs and a warm sense of companionship with like spirits. Feel the air on your skin!
