Happy Sufjan Stevens Day!

Or rather Happy Monday. But in my world today... It is officially Sufjan Stevens Day here in Melbourne! I get to see him play at the Arts Centre tonight. I've never seen him play before and am really really ... REALLY excited! Can you tell????

This weekend was pretty brilliant! Hilarious and good times had by all! And a HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to Andy for hooking us up for the Mos Def show! What a lovely surprise and what a lovely night... even my 5am bedtime didn't dampen my spirits much.. And just a note to myself - I know I live on the other side of the planet to where heaps of my old friends are... but more than 10 years of not seeing people... Way too long. So much catching up and never enough time!

Happy Sufjan Day!

The belated Holiday Recap

Yeah. I know. Late as usual! We had a lovely week off, hanging around the house, gardening, I did some drawing, J did some baking. Good times. :)

Bruce aka Scrappy Do. He enjoys a good army crawl.
My fancy new cheese board J got me for Xmas! It's stunning, so was the cheese.
Jackal, maybe Nigella? Minus the obvious.
Peanut Butter Brownies and our Christmasy Kitchen. YUM!

Sometimes, after I wake up... I have to reconnect my brain to reality.
 And remember that the beauty is no longer there.
