Here I am...

As usual, it has been a while since I blogged. Just plodding away doing my thing - homeschooling, housework, scouting etc.

Last weekend, Daniel and I went on the annual District Cub Scout Camp. We were lucky as it was held close to home at the World Heritage Naraoorte Caves. We both enjoyed ourselves. One of us was up very late the first night but then was so tired the second night that 10 hours sleep was had!! It wasn't me! Although I didn't have much sleep either, between the snoring from the other leaders I shared a room with and the chatting from the children in the next room!! I probably snore too - do ya think there comes a time when you just can't share a room with anyone!! I am afraid I like my room to myself and I like it dark and quiet. Might have to take a tent next time and put it way down the flat!!

While waiting for the Cub Scouts to reappear from the bottom of a cave, I took these photos of some of the native trees. I loved the gum flower - all on it's own - there was no others on the whole tree.

I think the second one is a Correa? Almost looks like a fuschia flower.

After a big weekend at Cub Camp, I came down with a very nasty tummy bug or maybe food poisoning. I spent Monday and Tuesday being very quiet and still, except for the mad dashes to the toilet! The rest of the week was fairly slow too and even now I am still off my food. This is probably not altogether a bad thing - a bit of weight loss happening! A silver lining in this cloud of ickiness!!

Today, I have done a couple of pages of scrapbooking - very simple ones. They are for my class at the local scrapbooking shop, that is on Wednesday this week. I am now off to do some more - am very into the simple look at the moment. Of course, I scraplift most of my pages, so am into Cathy Zeilske, Ali Edwards and Donna Downey. These ladies sure now how to make a simple but stupendous page!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!!

Hope your tummy's feeling a little more settled now. maybe I need to catch it, I don't think I ever loose my appetite, even when I'm sick. If anything I get more hungry when I'm sick, not good.
Hope you are going to share your weekends projects.
Now I need sleep, hoo roo.
