“Take time and make yourself feel good
And you do whatever you want
Cause you can now, In My World …” My World, Tim Kay.
In 2009 Home Life Online was born, a blog inspired by everything I enjoy most about spending time at home. Here I record activities and events taking place around my home and surrounding districts in far northern New South Wales, Australia.
Throughout the years, there has been no limit to the topics I have written about. I enjoy cooking, so occasionally share recipes. Craft projects sometimes dominate my time and I love to share projects that have turned out just the way they were meant to. As an avid reader, at times I am inspired to add a book review.
When I realised that what I share is a little piece of my world, I changed the title of my blog to In My World. It’s a more appropriate title for an ever-changing blog which moves with the flow of a progressive world. My life doesn’t stand still for too long, therefore my website continues to evolve.
As In My World evolves, particular topics are beginning to dominate the content. My love of photography has led to an interest in taking photos of nature ~ birds, landscapes, plants and flowers. My garden has become a place to meditate, to reflect on the events of the world and life in general while I weed garden beds and plant as many drought-tolerent plants as my garden beds can hold.
My garden is also where I keep company with Australian native birds, mostly kookaburras, magpies, butcher birds and, more recently, magpie larks. My garden overlooks majestic Mount Warning in the beautiful Tweed Valley, a view which makes my heart sing. My soul thrives when outdoors with nature, and I love sharing photos I have taken which speak to my soul.
Life is not only about tangible things either, and a smattering of spirituality creeps into my posts at times. My greatest joy is my family, four children, and a growing number of grandchildren – four currently – and I occasionally share special moments in time spent with them.
As I begin my final year of study for a Bachelor of Arts in English and creative writing, I will undoubtedly complain about long hours spent in front of the computer writing assignments. I work from home, but will rarely discuss anything business related. Topics I will never discuss are religion and politics.
I write about whatever I want, the “feel good” topics I discover daily, In My World. When you visit my world, I hope you feel comfortable, make yourself at home, and join in with the conversations.
