This is the beginning of my reading list for 2010. I have put off reading much over the last couple of years. And now my hunger is verocious. I just finished The Road. Totally different to anything I have ever read before. And the feeling it left me with, well I was stunned. Perserverence, love, hope, faith, strength all these are woven through this tale of absolute desolation. I believe it will be made into a movie and shown this year, not sure how that will translate, I think the book will be much better.
We did a bit of room rearranging on the 1st Jan and now this is the view from my office window. The reserve across the street is lovely, hares, kangaroos, possums, butterflies it's a delight. Danielle's car I was going to move it for the shot, but I miss her while she is in Perth so I like to look at it and look forward to her and Ashleigh coming home soon.
A few days ago we took a drive to Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. We went to the Mt Cootha Botanical gardens, the photos of the plants in my last few postings are taken there. This is from Mt. Cootha, the skyline of Brisbane City centre and the Brisbane river. It was rainy, misty and muggy, typical Brisbane humidity.
Coming home to Toowoomba, it rained we so badly need the rain in our dams, the clouds hung low over the range and the drizzle kept on, lovely.
