checklist // seizing the holi-day

art

So I made a list, checked it twice, or more and how did I go “seizing my holi-day”?

Well, good …  and bad.

I didn’t go for a walk everyday, and I didn’t head out to the library or take myself out for a meal by myself. I ran out of time.

I did work on a little side project, pushed myself a little out of my comfort zone there, and I cooked ~ a lot. I baked fresh bread, made soups, desserts and casseroles.

However, I did take more photos ~ usually every day, everything from time lapses to snaps with my iPhone. I’m still in the process of editing and processing them.

And I did check out the art. I got myself along to a local gallery, pictured above [snapped on my iPhone] and signed up for newsletters so I can go back again. They had a range of pieces for sale which I really must remember to get back along to when I need a lovely and unique gift for someone.

The leaves work pictured here, by artist Natalie Ward, was my pick. Each work in this series was quite captivating.

I also had an urge to climb a mountain, so to speak. And we took ourselves, for the first time, up to Huon’s Hill lookout which has panoramic views across the region.

Stupid to think we had never been, even though it’s a relatively short drive from home.

I had expected a short walk, turns out you could drive to the top [#winning] but unfortunately smoke from the autumn burn-offs obscured the view, which will be quite spectacular in the winter months on a clear day when we can see the Victorian Alps.

But, now we know and we will be heading back and next time might even pack a picnic! And we have plans when the smoke settles to do a guided tour of another mountain in the area. Seriously, I don’t know myself. But I want to see those views!

And photograph them, of course.
