Australia Day

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror,
The wide brown land for me...Dorothea McKellar

Today we celebrate Australia Day...I shall throw some lamb chops on the barbeque and enjoy some lamingtons.  I truly am blessed to live in such an amazingly beautiful country.


  1. Yay Happy Australia Day!! Congrats!! Enjoy Enjoy!!

  6. I love Australia...in HS my vision was to complete college then move there. Well of course life happened and now at 56 I've yet to visit. But I have a map for the next 10 yrs and God willing I'll visit our beautiful country.

    What are those lovely cakes??? Recipe or should I google Lamingtons?

    Grace, blessing and health, Deborah and the gang

  7. I had some childhood friends who moved to Australia years ago. They sent me beautiful pictures of it. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place.


  8. Happy Australia Day to you!! I hope one day I will be able to visit....

  9. Thanks for all the Australia Day wishes everyone...we ended up having family and friends over for a bbq with yummy lamb chops marinated in lemon juice and olive oil, accompanied by homemade coleslaw and Greek salad with quinoa - yummo - and too much wine, hee hee...oh, and Moondiva, so nice of you to pop in - I have to tell you, I cheated and bought my lamingtons, but they are fairly easy to make - just google the recipe because I haven't made them before x

  10. I come here via Victoria's blog. She featured some beautiful things you sent her. Wow! You are talented.
    I once had lamingtons in NZ. They are so luscious!
