Today was a special day, a birthday, another day to celebrate being alive, grateful for being together and enjoying each others company. We don’t count birthdays as such, after all, it’s just a number and the most important thing is how you feel. (Discounting my up and down days with Lyme) we are both happy as Larry and enjoy life to the fullest we can.

Today, that meant doing as much as we could in the time I can keep going. This week we’ve had two other outings to spread out the celebrating to cope with my limitations at present, but today was magnificent.  This morning we woke up to a southerly wind, which usually means the cold winter currents are still flowing up the coast, however, opening the windows wide we were blasted with hot and blustery winds. It was so hot we even checked the hot plates in the event we had left them on overnight. Nope, just an odd hot day. .

Here you can see both the white caps rolling north and the wind blowing the palms near the house.

This was odd to say the least, but a quick breakfast and we were off to the Crystal Castle. It’s a beautiful place situated just south-west of Mullumbimby and a short drive for us. Being avid crystal lovers it was a beautiful place to soak up the tranquility, play with the crystals and sit and relax over a beautiful coffee and cake. After all it was a birthday treat!

Overlooking the gardens from the coffee shop, surrounded by rose quartz and a huge clear quartz ‘obelisk’. Right are two of the beautiful amethyst geodes we love. The energy from these is spectacular.

We found some unexpected guests. The possum wasn’t going to be disturbed on his comfy perch and slept through his photo shoot. The English tourists at the next table were quite taken with him.

The cheeky Myna had just helped himself to a packet of sugar and was wondering if those shiny elestials were something to eat.

On the way out we saw two beautiful flowers I haven’t seen in a long time.

Above is the Blue Trumpet Vine or Sky Flower and below is the Lady Slipper Vine. Beautiful scents all round.

Finally as we arrived home we caught a couple of keen kite surfers and couldn’t resist a final shot of the gorgeous King Orchid in the tree next to the house.

It’s now time to count our Blessings and there many things today has brought for us to be grateful for. Spirit has been wonderful in showing us so many things in our lives that we have which we can be grateful for, in spite of the set backs.  Family phone calls and wishes and cards from people far away, all go to show that we are all connected.

I hope you enjoyed sharing Ray’s birthday (and Father’s Day here in Australia) with us. I know I had enjoyed sharing it with you.

“Gratitude means to recognize the good in your life, be thankful for whatever you have, some people may not even have one of those things you consider precious to you (love, family, friends etc). Each day give thanks for the gift of life.You are blessed”    Pablo
