Got Off My Arse And Did Something Today

Had a good yack to the missus and the boy this morning. Things appear to be calming down a bit over there. After brekkie I did some gardening. Yesterday I levelled the backyard and this morning I seeded it with lawnseed. Will find out in a few weeks if it has been successful. Have to water the damn thing 2-3 times a day for the next 3-4 weeks.

After that I had some lunch followed by an hour or so of uninstalling/reinstalling my TV tuner card to get it working properly again. Finally had some success.

Then I had to make a decision regarding what to do today. I thought that a bike ride would be a good idea and I took my camera with me.

The local wetland has enjoyed the Spring rains
Look at the algal bloom in the wetland
A few days ago this footpath would have been impassible
Is this a wattle in full bloom?
I have no idea what this plant is but it crept all the way up to the top of a eucalyptus
Here's something you don't see everyday - a brown and white house
Which dingbat architect designed this?
Local fishing spot
Dig those crazy tree roots by the river
It's Nessie!
Water fowl wandering about on a path that you can normally walk on
This slimy mess looks like the top of my milo
Goal mouth action in a local soccer match
Free kick about to be taken
I watched the second half of a local soccer match. It was quite entertaining and end-to-end action. Just before the game finished one of the strikers from the blue side had a beautiful cross put to him and he only had the small goalie to beat. What did he do? He nearly put the ball into the river. Gee it was funny. Only minutes before there had been a goalmouth scramble after the goalie dropped a corner kick and the blue team scored.

It is indeed a Wattle in full bloom. It is in fact a Wattle Gum/Gum Wattle, depending on where you live.

Architect. What architect? A prescooler could have designed it better!

Megha, it appears that curses are indeed lifted - http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=%22curse+lifted%22&btnG=Search&meta=
