Ahhh.... Sunday & coffee

I love our Sundays when we meet Tony & Robyn for breakfast! Today we had the yummiest breakfast... the coffee I didn't enjoy but I stopped at Starbucks on the way home - yum! We had a huge breakfast at the Studley Park Boathouse. Sundays are usually quiet days for us and today I will continue to do cutting for a quilt I will make for my granddaughter Karla and I will also pack for my trip to the U.S. Brett and Paige are here. Paige is playing with her fairy castle and Peter & Brett are watching sport on tv. How do you spend your Sundays?

Half full or half empty?

I was with girlfriends yesterday and a man was walking across on the footpath (sidewalk) and one of the girls commented that he had a mean look on his face and the others seem to agree but I didn't see a mean face at all and suggested that maybe the sun was in his eyes and he was squinting which sort of wrinkled his face and made it look mean (to them [not to me]). One girl said, "Matilda, you are so nice." I don't know if it was a matter of being nice, it was truly a matter of not seeing a mean face on this man. I'm often told that I always see the positive before the negative. I hope I always see the positive... hence the "half full or half empty?" What is it for you? I hope it always half full!

Everytime I see pomegranates I think of my childhood friend Elaine. I bought and ate a pomegranate this week and it was really nice to think about my childhood friend and the things we shared. Is there a food that reminds you of someone special?
