Five for Friday!

It seems like such a long time since I joined in with Five for Friday! Time to get back into the groove. :)

Last weekend we spent a few days camping on a lake about an hour and a half from where we live! While it was a little bit cold in the early mornings we had absolutely gorgeous weather.  Winter in Queensland is glorious. :) The photo above shows the girls fishing off the back of our boat.

If you love historical fiction you need to read Kate Morton! I read 'The Forgotten Garden' first and was hooked on her style.  The books are so well written and all of them have plot twists that you won't see coming. :)

I've been spending some time revising some of my older products that needed some TLC. At first it felt like a backward step because I wasn't spending time on new ideas... but once I looked through the finished files I was soooooooo much happier with them.  Click on the pictures to find them listed at half price for the weekend.

A couple of weekends ago we went to the Noosa Food & Wine Festival.  I've always wanted to go! We had such a beautiful weekend. Our favourite events were the fancy dinner that had famous chefs serving delicious meals made from local produce, and the Spanish fiesta in the beach tipi!  So much fun - if you even get a chance you need to go. :)

Don't you love a good teacher meme? This one made me chuckle because it's so true... although you could replace reading intervention program with so many other things and it would be equally as accurate.  It's lucky us teachers are flexible!

Happy weekend, friends! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I read Kate Morton's The Secret Keeper- very good. I am into the Outlander series right now and they might take me through most of the summer. I love a gooood, loooong series :) Love the meme! Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom

    1. I've heard lots of people talk about the Outlander series - I think I might need to check them out. :)

  2. The Lake House is one of my books for my reading challenge this year...can't wait to get into it!

  3. How gorgeous is that wine festival! (Totally pinterest worthy) I hear you on updating older products, I feel like that will be one of my projects for the summer!

    1. The festival was very fancy - so nice to have an excuse to get dressed up!
      Updating products does keep the creating in progress when you don't have the time/brain power to make new files so that's good. And some of my first product covers were just awful!! :D

  4. I love Kate Morton!! I'm going to have to check to see if she's published anything new since I read her last... I'll be looking for some summer reads soon!
