12 of 12 July 2009

So, here we are again with another 12 of 12. If you don't know what 12 of 12 is then check out this guy's website where it will all become apparent. Anyhoo, this is my 12 of 12 for July 2009. I had to take all of the pictures around our house, because my better half was sleeping after doing night duty and I don't drive so I was a bit stranded. I did my best and I hope you like this months photos. Enjoy...



Time to get up. I actually slept in because I'm usually up by 5:00. Yea me I guess???



Time for a shower.



A view from our back deck looking down towards the city and the Derwent river. It's called river but it is actually the harbour. It has been said that it is the deepest sheltered harbour in the southern hemisphere. I'm not sure if that is true but if you could see the whole thing you would understand why I say it is a harbour and definitely not a river.



Some of the word work that makes up the mantle around the fireplace in our lounge (living) room.



Some more woodwork from the same fireplace mantle.



It's just a cute picture. The cups are handmade by a local pottery maker her in Tasmania. I dry out lavender from our garden before I make sachets out of the dried lavender that I then put them in our closets and the dresser drawers.



This is the first of two guess what it is photos. You tell me...



It was a grey and rainy day today as you can see.



The second of what is it photos. Again you tell me.



Self-portrait against the back door of the house.



I recorded all five nights and watched them all today. To be honest I was very unhappy with the ending. It just left a lot of blank spot for me personally.



Just a collection of stuff sitting on top of one of the fireplace mantles (we have four) in the house



Just a picture of one of the paintings we own being lighted by our floor lamp. No reason for this to be the last photo of the evening except it's the last thing before we head to the bedroom each night and we go around turning off lights. Maybe??? That all for this moth once again I hope you enjoyed the photos and we'll be back next time come the 12th of August. See ya around...

Torchwood was more than a little bit grim wasn't it?
Fourth season is in planning stage, likely to get the green light thanks to strong viewing figures this week. Very strange.

Love the shower curtain too :)

OMG, the woodwork of your mantle is amazing, gorgeous, beautiful, etc., etc., etc. I'm guessing 1) Plantation Shutter and 2) privacy fence.

looks like a kind of a shutter or a part from the aircondition. the second is definitely a cute little gnome watching you from behind a wooden fence!
the view from your house is marvellous, how I love to share a day in a life in Tasmania!!!
I already did two lavender sachets, I love this fragrance! and I liked the idea of your self portrait.

The view from your house and the wood work and everything is wonderful. Torchwood does not air here on BBC America until July 20th but I have my DVR set!

I like the shower curtain! And the teddy bear mugs with the lavendar.

I missed Torchwood, as I've not seen season 2. But then again, who knows when I'll see s2 or s3 now? I should look into that...

Well done for a quiet day at home! I think several of us had days like that, yet everyone's ended up with lovely photos to show for it!

Haven't seen the Torchwood yet, but I will soon, and I'm really anxious for it.
