ANZAC Day 2014 - Lest We Forget

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grown old. 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, 
we will remember them.

Today marks the 99th anniversary of  when Australian and New Zealand troops landed at Gallipoli in 1915 the soldiers had no idea what lay in store for them. ANZAC Day is a day where we remember the fallen soldiers and those that have served not just in World War I but from all armed conflicts and peace keeping operations.

I'll be watching the ANZAC Day march on tv later. I'd better keep the tissues handy *sniff* I get so emotional just thinking about what these men and women have done for us. I just know I'll end up getting all teary.

Thankful Thursday

Here's what I am thankful for this week:

  • celebrating birthdays! Mark turned 42 on Easter Monday and we went out last week for lunch to celebrate
  • crochet - my new blanket is coming along nicely. I've managed to make 11 background squares already. I'm thinking I might make this blanket larger than I usually do so I may end up making 16 squares. I haven't decided yet.
  • setting up an If This Then That recipe to send some of my instagram pics to blogger.
  • phone calls - I had a brief chat with both of my sisters the other night. We don't talk very often but it was nice to speak with them.
What are you thankful for this week?

A Thick As Soup

Boy it was foggy this morning. This is what it looked like when I was driving Angus to TAFE. Twenty minutes later when I got back into town the fog had cleared.
