Pears

A couple of weeks ago I visited the Degas exhibition (it finishes today) at the NGA with good friend and Godmother to my eldest. After she'd gone home I found a magnet on my fridge with these pears on it. She knew I was admiring the glass ones for sale in the NGA shop. This sculpture, Pear - version 2 is by George Baldessin and it resides in the sculpture garden. Since my glass pear encounter I seem to be seeing pears in all sort of strange places; prints, T-shirts and appliqued on bags just to name a few.

Thursday Lattes

Excuse the quality of this picture, it was taken on my iPhone. Every Thursday the little one and I go to Belconnen Markets to pick up the few things we can't get at EPIC farmers market. This has been a long standing tradition and our visit always ends in coffee and treats at the organic cafe - As Nature Intended. The little one has his baby chino (pictured) although he likes to call it a latte. The barista did such a special job with the chocolate on the top that we decided it was worthy of a photo.

Wallpaper

My computer is almost back to normal, thanks to a new hard drive. My darling husband is not convinced that the hard drive is the issue so we are keeping our fingers crossed. On the plus side I have more disk space that I shall ever have a need for - 1 terabyte! With all this rebuilding and reinstalling I felt it was also time for new wallpaper. I stumbled on the Desktop Wallpaper Calendar 2009 thanks to Smashing Magazine. There are so many great choices. I think we need some Southern Hemisphere input though as many of the designs are celebrating the arrival of spring when we are watching our leaves changing colour.
