I thought I would Share …

Had a wonderful Sunday. The weather has turned cold and fog lay on the lake this morning but we thought we would take a walk in Weston Park anyway

a mob of kangaroosAnd even more friends … Actually mobs of kangaroos are quite common in Weston Park but I always get a kick out of seeing them

It was a lovely day. Sorry for the off topic self indulgence, but I thought readers in different countries would enjoy the pictures of the Kangaroos.

  1. Thought I responded before…
    I like the new photo, think it would be nice to use as your profile.
    It’s so cool to be able to go out and see kangaroos! I get to see squirrels — which are OK, but not as “exotic” (though we did have an opossum in our back yard when we lived in Virginia).

  2. Thank you for sharing the photos of kangaroos. They look so cuddly. It’s also nice to see recent photos of yours. You look lovely and so does your smile. Best regards, Salmah.

  3. Sharon, This is your blog and if you want to put pictures of roos or anything else, you go right ahead and do it girl. I have been reading your blog for a long time and miss hearing about Jerry and his adventures. You give so much of yourself to everyone, You are wonderful person.
    I am signed up for tast and was keeping up, until I got sick about 6 weeks ago and had surgery two weeks ago. Right now I have all can do to keep up with looking at other ladies sewing on the net. When I am able I will be back to it.

  4. I lived on a property outside Canberra until I was 13 (and moved to Melbourne). Roos, wallabies and frill necked lizards were a feature of my childhood. It was so very special!
    I think it’s a lovely photo! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Sharon, we can see Kangaroos only at the zoo, so thank you so muxh for sharing these wonderful photos!
    Yes, you should take that photo for your profile! You look surely not mad but happy, cute and absolutely natural ( hope to use the right word!).
    I want to use this possibility to say thanks for all you do for the art of embroidery!
    I’m looking forward to my first lesson with you!
    Warm regards from Austria

  6. I think you should use the pictures of you. It is great! *I* really appreciate the pictures!! I rarely see “natural” photos of kangaroos and we have a little on going “thing” for them here as we have a son named Joey ๐Ÿ™‚ I know many people consider them pests, but I think they are adorable.

  7. Sharon, I absolutely love seeing your photos from Australia! As you know, I am a huge animal lover and we don’t have Kangaroos here in the US except at the zoo so it’s a huge treat for me to see them in your photos. They’re beautiful!

    And yes, I do think you should use that photo for your Profile pic! You are so cute!!!!

    I wanted to let you know that I updated the link to your blog in my side bar!

    Hugs, Pam

  8. It is so lovely to see your pictures – to see the kangaroos in their natural habitat – just delightful – thank you. And I really like the photographs of you too – you have a happy smile!!
