Spring tries again......

Our beautiful tree waking up after winter, and the warm breeze and smell of fresh cut grass wafting in through the door of New Leaves this morning, are all helping to keep my mind off the 8 hours of bookkeeping I did yesterday, only to have the file corrupt and disappear!

Never mind. The tax department can wait. Spring is in the air again, and there are 'New Leaves' everywhere.

Summer Dreaming.

Well it seems a jaunt to India is not enough for this bookseller. Winter is fighting back today, and I am dreaming of exotic destinations. Ordering wonderful travel books and stunning books of Australian and International aerial photography has my feet itching for summer again. We've had some fantastic rain, so perhaps a weekend (or a Monday) in the garden will cure me! See you next week.

Back to Work!!

India was FABULOUS - as it always is. Down south this time to Kerala, where I have never been. A trip to the tea plantations where my sweetheart's father used to work. A relaxing night or two on the backwaters, floating by rice fields and water buffalo, and a wonderful time catching up with my sweetheart's brother and seeing where he began his life.

And finally, to celebrate my birthday, a (not so) surprise bottle of Champagne which my sweetheart remembered to pick up at the Duty Free Shop, 2 weeks early! That's love.

Check out the company cghEarth, who are the leaders in sustainable travel experiences in India. Their establishments are all run responsibly on solar power, and sustainable energy, they have rainwater collection and recycling systems, they will shortly be able to recycle and responsibly process 100% of their own waste, and their philosophy is strongly rooted in the ancient Ayurvedic tradition. www.cghearth.com Definitely worth a moment of your time. Enjoy!
