Against the odd, I woke up just in time to see the sunrise this morning.

And what a treat to also see transparent layers of mist laying across the fields of sugarcane as well!

When we moved into our new home twenty-six years ago, a friend described our view over the valley as the perfect setting for Lord of the Rings. I still haven’t read the book, but I have just started reading The Hobbit. So far I have only read three chapters, so I will be looking out for any descriptive passages that aptly describe our view of the valley. I’ll let you know if I find any.

I finally finished the assignment I have been working on this week and submitted it late this morning. After lunch, I spent the afternoon at the computer catching up on other study. Next week, I have a week off for mid-semester break, but I have two more assignments due in two week’s time, so I will be working on those during the break.

Two week’s ago I shared some photos and detailed information about kookaburras. I had been researching for an assignment and chose the kookaburras as I feel an affinity with them, especially my two old regulars, Larry and Shilo. My results came back today – 98/100 – so I’m pretty pleased about that. 🙂

That’s all for today. It’s been another long day at the computer and I’m heading off to bed. xx
