Coming Soon!

While the garden has been left to the mercy of a wet winter and poor drainage, I was not neglecting my writing…well maybe a little. Except when hubby was working from home, I managed to write some new poems. These will be posted in August. I do hope you enjoy my most recently written pieces.

7 years ago this week….

7 Year Anniversary Achievement
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 7 years ago.

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

7 years ago I registered with WordPress.com, created one post then promptly forgot my password.

Back then I had no idea how to get back in and after a lot of frustration, I gave up. On a whim in 2017, I tried again and bingo!

I decided I needed to work this out. I was a little more techno by then 😉 I looked up a Theme and discovered “On a Whim”, so it’s stuck. Every anniversary I’ve thought about changing it but… every year I decide “On a Whim” is just perfect for me. 🙂

I thought this was a writer’s blog.

Well, hello to you too and thank you for dropping by. 🙂

Let me tell you a short story behind Riverside Peace and why I named it so. Yes, it is the official website of Australian author Chrissy Siggee but it’s the whole me.

At the time of creating my blog my husband and I lived and previously lived not far from a river. The closest river from our new home now is still just a short drive away but there are quite a few rivers really. Rivers have always inspired my writing and I’ve spent hours taking in the solitude at a river side and photographing the source of my inspirations. Not only do we have a river close by but there are numerous beaches, country drives, a zoo and the Koala Hospital – all to inspire any writer or photographer. With the Covid-19 restrictions and closures, I can only work with archived photos. 🙂

Gardening has always been a relaxing hobby and has always inspired my writing and my prayer life. Let me leave you with a favourite song of mine.

A Joint Affair

Because Norm had a bigger puzzle to put together ie a coffee table in a flat pack, I sorted the jigsaw puzzle edges and divided the water, mountain and sky pieces from the rest.

There was nothing on TV after tea so we worked side by side and almost completed half before bedtime.20200610_225350

The next sitting we completed it. All done. Now where’s the new 1000 piece parcel?…

New WordPress Editor Test

For the birds?

Let’s see how this new WordPress Editor works.

I’m not sure if I like

 

It’s definitely to complicated for this old bird.

Poetry Book Description & Order Page

Glimpses of His Glory has it’s own page located right here on Riverside Peace.

All updates and ordering details for poetry  books can be found on my Poetry Book page.

The ordering link will show British Pounds (GBP) but because this book is printed in most countries, the price will adjust to your country’s currency when you make the order or simply check the exchange rate on any online currency converter first.

It’s nice of you to like this post but please take a look and like there too. 🙂

Your comments are also welcome.

Thank you.

Getting back into an old hobby.

I can’t believe it’s been nearly four years since I many anyone a card of some kind. With my back trouble, double surgery, arthritis and my erratic Fibromyalgia, then trying to sell a house for almost a year, I finally did it. I went through the hobby boxes searching for cardboard, glue, stamps, cut outs and stickers. These cards I made today. They’re a mix of my photography and actually creating cards from bits and pieces made from scratch. Although my fingers cramped up with the fine work, I don’t think I did too badly. Using my photos and the computer for printing, also gave me a break from the fiddly stuff. I always enjoyed this hobby and look forward again to rainy days, sticky fingers and creating.  🙂

Finally…

My finger has healed enough for me to resume typing. The nail still could fall off but at least the wound is healed. The lower part of the nail is beginning to catch so I may have to keep it covered overnight so I don’t accidentally rip it of with the bed clothes. St least I can type with out finger bumping the touch screen with the fat protective wadding I’ve had to use.

Happy New Year

I’m sorry that there is no specific post for New Year this year but I leave you with some of the many residents and places we have found in our new town. There’s more to be introduced to and more places to explore with new experiences to come as we enter a new year and new beginnings.

May God bless you all as as He has blessed us.

With one finger out of action…

It’s hard to type with my right pointer finger wrapped up.

On the Friday before Christmas the wind slammed the car door shut on the tip of my finger bursting it open at the base of the nail. It’s no longer painful but I need to keep the top half of the finger well padded to allow the nail to come off on it’s own. It’s going to be a slow process but with the side not lifted embedded in the flesh under that side of the nail, all that can be done is to wait. Typing has also become a very slow process.
