Random Ramblings ~ Beautiful Mackay

Long time no post... that's because I've been off gallivanting around the country on a little 'girl time' holiday with Michelle up in Mackay!

We've been joking around all year saying I should come over and do a workshop with her, and then back in July we decided it was time to make it happen.  So I booked flights and mosey'd on over.

As always... we hit the ground running.  Mich has one speed... flat out!  She's amazing, truly!

So anyways, here's a quick visual of bits and pieces we did!

I made ruffles for a kit I designed for her... we needed them dry quick so we hung them out on the line, I still laugh at this photo, but hey, it worked!!

Mich cooking... she did all her own catering for this workshop, see... amazing!

I helped roll some of the marshmallows... how cool are these!  One for the workshop, one for Mis...

This is one side of the workshop... such beautiful ladies attended, was the best fun!

I created pretties as well...

 and there's more but I'm 'saving' them to share later!

We went for a walk one morning... I know exercise, me... but I wanted to see where Mich goes walking.  She's often sending me little snippets of birds and things she sees along the way.

I love the little train tracks... and the cute cane carriages.

This was to show how tall the cane was... took me some courage to get that close, terrified a snake would jump out and eat me LOL! {Yes, sad case I know - they are more scared of me than I them, but I doubt that with all my heart}

Mich's girls... who gave us beautiful eggs each day...

... and a moo, love this quick shot from the iPhone!

Mich's gorgeous girl Maddie... she's a beautiful dog!

We managed a 'just play' day as well... Mich makes such a mess, look at the comparison {my side is the right side where you can see the matt}

We even had a lovely last day... starting with delish breakfast in the morning {Canadian Waffles for me}.  I think I came back with an extra 10kg on my tummy.

This is me and Christine, one of Michelle's lovely friends.  I'm so glad that she has such beautiful souls around her.

New shoes I bought while shopping... 3 new pairs came home with me!


and a last pic of us before I had to leave...

... and I wasn't allowed home without bringing Krispy Kremes for the boys!

I truly loved my time with Michelle, and I loved Mackay.  Next time I need more time so I can do all the touristy things, but all I wanted to do was spend time with Mich, just us. One of the first things I noticed different about Mackay {other than the wonderfully slower pace} was the smell... it smelled divine.  The sugar mill creates a sweet smell in the air, combined with the sugar cane, the open fields and the ocean it was wonderful.  Can't wait to smell it again!

Thank you again beautiful girl for having me...
