This is A Good Friday.

This is A Good Friday Here and even though I have a blown power board on my Pc and will not be able to fix it too soon, I do have the benefit of using this very old HP Omnibook Laptop still running on Windows 98. Now you might say I am in pc antiquity here and I would agree however the old girl is still firing up and still functioning after all these months of non use. Some one said to me Old Is Gold and yes this is true of many purchases I have made in the past.

Weather wise the Day could only be explained as perfect with only a slight breeze, the sun shining, birds are twittering and blue skies are above. Traditionally we will eat our Hot Cross Buns today and I have planned on making Seafood Marinara for dinner. Easter for us is all about visits and visiting. Relaxing and enjoying each others company.

Last Wednesday was my mother's eighty first birthday and although she wished for low key she said that the day turned out to be an Excellent Birthday Choice. We packed up the car and went for a drive to Wellington on the river Murray. It was a beautiful day and the scenic drive was well received by mum, who had not been out that way for many, many years. When we are young and can get out and about as we please we take much for granted. It is as we age that some of us have to rely on others to give us the chance to explore and enjoy places a bit further afield than the smaller perimeters which unfortunately we now find ourselves contained within.

Wellington turned out to be a lovely destination. Our River system down this end is in turmoil to say the least and there is much needed to be done to save The Mighty Murray in our state. It is our life blood for many reasons and although it was sad to see the level down, it is still very much a very lovely oasis to behold in this state. I have some gorgeous photos to share once my PC is functioning again. 

Let me take this moment now to wish everyone A Good Friday. May it be Peaceful, Happy and a relaxing Easter for all. Old is Gold and the significance of Easter with it's Traditions and The Story of The Ultimate Sacrifice continues now for more than two thousand years and is celebrated in the hearts of many of my dear friends here. We all need to Look at Our Personal Blessings and be Truly Thankful no matter what our beliefs, as hope springs eternal from the sacrifices of the past.

Love Milli.

  4. Happy Easter, Milli! I do hope your Easter is a lovely relaxing one as ours will be too. We're going to my twin brother's house for Easter - we've been doing that since we moved up here 5 years ago. It should be fun with lots of great Brazilian food! Their youngest son, who is away getting his master's degree in mechanical engineering, might be coming up from Cal-Poly in San Luis Obispo. It's a rather long drive, so he might not come this time. He's a really great kid - 25 year old kid - and it's always great to see him.
    Take good care of you & once again, Happy Easter!
    Hugs,
    Marcia

  11. Wow, it sounds like we are all on the old dregs of computerland past this month... It has been strange, like Milli mentioned, using XP again for the past month after two years of Vista Ultimate. I gave up trying to edit photos on this ~2004 era box, just not enough RAM to play with. A new Alienware 17 inch laptop should be landing next week fortunately. It has been nice to read a book again at night vs play games online I must admit. Enjoy the weekend all!

  12. Belated Birthday wishes to your Mother. I agree with the old is gold part for most things(with the exception of computer speeds and wireless tech.). I dont like the furniture I see in the stores now. I remember the heavy furniture the markets had when I was younger, I loved them for their sturdiness and their intricate carvings and finesse. The same for many other things and of course the way we prepare food these days. Its a wonder we can think straight with all the additives and preservatives we have in our food today.

    Happy Easter to you and Family. I know I am blessed to have you in my life.:)
