A Break in the Clouds

Hello Mount Warning!

I’ve spent all of this week at home, blogging my little fingers off at the computer keyboard and simply enjoying two of my favorite pastimes ~ writing, and recording family history.

The weather has been very obliging during my week indoors as well. It has rained, constantly, all week. So imagine that, I haven’t begrudged spending time behind my keyboard one little bit in favour of being out in my garden, because there hasn’t been any sun! πŸ˜‰

During one of my frequent breaks from the computer this morning, to put on a load of washing and grab a cup of tea, I happened to look out the window, and there it was…the Magical Mountain had returned!

Mount Warning hasn’t made an appearance this week at all, in fact we’ve had so much mist that our back garden has rarely made an appearance! Even with a mass of white clouds in front of the mountain it looked as magical as ever.

Even the sun is trying to make an appearance!

You never know, I could even be able to do some gardening this weekend, if this change in the weather continues. πŸ™‚

Wherever you are in the world, and however you chose to spend your time this weekend, me and the Magical Mountain wish you a simply “Magical Weekend”! πŸ™‚

  1. Everything looks so lush and green down there! It must be nice having such a lovely mountain view to enjoy when the fog lifts. Mount Warning is an interesting name for a mountain – makes me wonder how it came to be called that. And may you and your mountain have a magical weekend, too!

    1. Mount Warning was named by the early explorer Captain James Cook, back in 1770, when he sailed up the east coast of Australia and noticed the huge Mountain. He regarded it as a warning to stay clear of the land, as there were reefs out to sea in this area. He also named Point Danger, right on the coast, where the Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse now stands. I’ve written many posts about both Mount Warning and Point Danger, way too many to add the links here, but if you are interested in reading more Barbara, just search the catagories for Mount Warning.

      It really is wonderful having a view of Mount Warning outside my back door and it really does have mystical qualities. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Kathy. The way I see it, you can’t control the weather, so why fight it, although I had planned on spending most of the week writing anyway! My week was magical and it was a magical moment to see Mount Warning looking so beautiful again, after so many days in the clouds. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad you made it to my place too Kathy, so I can wish you a Happy Birthday again! I’m sure that you and Sara have had as much fun reflecting on your life to date, as I have had reading about it and seeing the old photos. I feel as if we are long-term friends already! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for the honour, MoJo! I’ll have to give some thought to passing this award on over the next couple of days. At the moment, I couldn’t pick “favourites” from the blogs I read, as they all inspire me!

      Congratulations on receiving the nomination yourself. Momentum of Joy is a very uplifting website to visit. Love and light to you also. πŸ™‚
