Thirty Questions

Ever wanted to know a little more about who I am?  Look no further, and read on.  

I’m following the lead of my blogging friend Calen (over at Impromptu Promptlings) and, considering that lately I’m struggling to blog with more consistency, even though I’m busy job hunting, I thought it would be fun to take up the “Thirty Questions” Challenge.

Spoiler Alert!!  The following blog article may contain too much information 🙂

Good Morning Venus

Looking east this morning, before the sky began to brighten, was the loveliest sight with Venus sitting below and to the left of the crescent Moon.

This is the best shot I was able to get. On days like these, I wish I had a better camera.

Another Parmigiana at the Bellvista Tavern

After the last meal we enjoyed at our local tavern I’d said we would return on a Monday night to try their ‘Snitty Special’.  This special consists of a chicken schnitzel with your choice of topper, served with salad and chips for only $15.

Surely it couldn’t be as good as the item on the regular menu.

There were four toppers to choose from.  I chose the BBQ Meat Lovers, Dean chose the Mad Mex.  For the life of me, I cannot remember what the other toppers are, but I’ll remedy that next time we visit – and there will be a next time.

Visiting Buderim Falls

Also known as Serenity Falls, this little waterfall is found in Buderim Forest Park, a sub-tropical oasis just a short drive north of the Buderim township and a delight to behold.

The park is only small, covering a mere 45 hectares (111.2 acres), but even so, it’s a little haven of tranquillity.  Setting out from the Lindsey Road entrance, it was like stepping through a doorway into another realm with the sounds of suburbia failing to reach us the entire time we were there.

Chicken Parmigiana at the Bellvista Tavern

A couple of weeks ago, I declared that one night each week Dean was to prepare our evening meal.  I don’t particularly care what he cooks, it’s all about me not cooking.  Sometimes I have no idea what to cook, and it’s not because I can’t cook.  I can.  But to be perfectly honest, sometimes I simply need a break from always being responsible for this daily task.

His solution (after cooking once) was to take me out for dinner, so naturally, I had to try the Chicken Parmigiana.  There were nine toppings to choose from and it took me an inordinate amount of time to decide which one I wanted to try.  I nudged Dean towards ‘The Ploughman’ and eventually chose the ‘The Frenchy’ for myself.
