well hello Jack Frost !


This is what is  keeping me sane at the moment .


I drop my kids to their bus at about 6.45 each morning
and then I go walking .


I'm not a runner .

I hobble for 3kms on my shoddy knee .
Most mornings lately it has been freezing .


It clears my head .
It gives me thinking time.
It helps me feel stronger.

It is a beautiful way to start the day .


Very , very cold ....


but very , very beautiful .

Love Gundagai and I recognise that bridge. How blessed you are Clare to enjoy the fresh clean air and peacefulness of the country.

oooohhh looks so cold but i totally undestand why you love to walk in it...not that i would but i still get it! i feel sorry that your children have to be on a bus so early, we are so lucky living in the big smoke to be one street away from our school and the kids dont get out of bed until about 7:15.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the web!

Frosty mornings are just so beautiful, I love the pic of the spider web, it's simply stunning.

Looks really cold but crisp too, love the spider's web so intricate. We are currently in the low 30's C so a bit of a contrast.

Your photo's are great, I'm freezing just looking at them. Maybe that's because I'm in the UK, he he. I bet your ready for the day after your frosty walk. Thanks for sharing.

wow! such beautiful photos Clare! they took me back to my childhood when we would ride our bikes down the dirt road to catch the bus....we would all be laughing as our jackets, gloves, beanies and eyelashes would be covered in icycles by the time we got there!
