A pretty walk around town...

(sunrise 6.10am)
Hello peeps! Sorry I have been missing in action since last week. Wow, where do I begin. After my sister's 60th lunch, on Thursday Bri and I headed to the city to see Kirby. We got home Saturday. Sunday was spent cleaning out the shed and garage in readiness for Bri's 18th party this coming weekend.

Monday I started my 7 week 'Spruce up for life' fitness program. After 45 minutes of aerobics I was red in the face and out of breath. Best thing was - so was everyone else! I think this is going to be fun.

On Tuesday, I attended my uncle's funeral which was a sad time but it was good to catch up with cousins and family that we don't see a lot of.

On Tuesday night I attended a meeting to form a SA Weight Watchers Assoc. group in our town. A committee was formed and the meetings should commence in a few weeks time. It is mainly a support group where you can come and be weighed each week, share tip and hints and recipes and support each other in living a healthier life. I am on the committee and am really excited to get it all going!

These photos were taken last Thursday morning on my 45 minute walk around town.

Our main street (shopping precinct)
~
I walk through the street then along the main road that leads through town...
~
Bottle brushes (Callistemon) ...
~
Unsure what these are but they grown well here (I have since found out that this is an Echium (thank you, Ali at Quiltingorchardist)...
~
Okay, now I have turned the corner and head up this road - the council have provided us with a nice smooth walking path...
~
Prunis blossoms...
~
This is a Guelder Rose (so I found out when reading Little Jenny Wren's latest blog) ...
~
Arum lily...
~
These pretty flowers are in the Old Folks Home garden...
~

~
More pretty blooms...
~
Just keep walking, just keep walking...
~
Now we have come full circle (or square) since the first picture at the top...
~

~
~
More smooth footpath...
~
These natives (Grevilleas, I think) are in the bowling green garden...
~
More of those spikey purple flower heads (Echium) ...
~
Past our pristine parklands - our council does a lovely job of maintaining our civic area...
~
Even the local pub has pretty flowers planted in beds...
~
So pretty, I may have snapped of a piece to plant at home...
~
Past our Cross of Sacrifice...
~
Then back home for porridge and fresh squeezed orange juice.
~
Dinner last night was Annette Sym's Macaroni Beef - yummo!

Cheers - Joolz
