School went back this week. I kind of feel like that is the start of the year for me because it is back to proper routines and chores and getting things done. Well hopefully getting things done.

I have been a real slacker in January. I feel kind of lethargic because of it really but the new page on the calendar is giving me inspiration to get up and get going. Exercising, writing and such.

And some down time too. We have a really nice spot down by the creek that runs through out property. It is peaceful. I can't say it is quiet. The creek is fast flowing (especially so at the moment because we have had a lot of rain) and noisy. Definitely not a babbling brook. I came home from my cold swim energised though. Maybe it was the mindfulness, the energy of the water or the bracing temperature of the water.

Before I run out of oomph, I should get started on my day.

I'll leave you here with a picture of the flowers on my lilly pilly. It's nice when a rescue plant rewards your kindness with flower or fruit or even with just surviving.

How lovely to have a spot like that on your property, and can swim there too, just beautiful.

Love the lilly-pilly flower, we have a tree within the grounds here, but it hangs over a footpath and driveway, so when the fruit drops someone is out there everyday, sweeping, until the drops are finished.
My daughter has a similar creek, with cottonwoods, but hers is dry 90% of the time.

Hello from Idaho came in from River. Most things are on slumber around here since it still winter. Today I heard birds a ch-ripping.
Hope you fine the time to stop in for a cup of coffee.

Oh, I think it is nice when any plant rewards you at all. I usually manage to kill them with kindness.
That creek looks nice and inviting, refreshing on a hot summer day.

How blessed to have that creek in your property! That was always a dream of mine that we would have a property with a creek running through it - unfortunately that dream will never eventuate now so I'm feeling blessed to see that you are enjoying your little creek!

That creek looks like a great spot to be writing letters Tracy. Nothing like moving water to improve your day. The lilly pilly flower is beautiful.

What a beautiful spot by the creek. Unfortunately, we've had a really dry January so the river is rather low, although still pretty. The Lilly Lilly flowers are gorgeous. I've never seen them before.
