Hi Everyone, not a lot to report, I have had a very quiet week at home feeling rather unwell, after a few visits to doctors Iam now on road to recovery from a mystery bug..
I promise to get around to visiting you all in the next few days
Firstly :I am honoured and pleased to recieve this award from Alice Who has lovely tea party recipes, please pop over and visit her im sure you will all enjoy her recipes.
Now for the rules:

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) The award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.
This award is "dedicated to many who nourish and enrich the spirit and creativity. They see dedication, creativity, camaraderie, joy and above all, ART, much art. I wish that this prize is entertaining to all those bloggers and to bloggers who day by day share this space and enrich it a little more each day." ~Arte Y Pico
Now I have to pass this onto to five others which was a difficult choice. So I picked these
My Dear Friends. Or anyone who would like to have it please feel free to have it...
Heres a few photo's I took homeward bound just outside Yarrawonga after our Trip to Albury last week .
a deserted farm shed just off the Hwy
A closer look

A rusted piece of farm Machinery on the same property

A few donkeys a little further up the road

A view of Lake Mulwala from the Hwy if you take a close look theres a boat with a skier on the back taking his life in his hands with all the stumps about
lowering the lake to try kill of the green weed growing

you can see the weed better in these couple photo's pic.

You can see, the green weed in the water through the tree
The lake Getting lower
left Side of boat ramp
Well normally you couldn't leave your Tinny (Boat)here cause it would be under water.
The waters edge is well down and should be up past those few leafy twigs.

Right Side of boat ramp, Can you see the tyres against the bank?
thats were the normal water level should be.
The Shire tells us the lake will be full again by end of August.
I promise to get around to visiting you all in the next few days

Hi, glad to see you are feeling better. Very interesting photos there of the lake. That weed is such a pest.

Hi Jen, sorry to hear you've been off colour. There are so many mysterious "bugs" going around now.

I found your photos interesting. I haven't been to Albury for about 30 years! I'd probably notice a lot of changes.

Hope all is well in your world.

Take care.

Thank you so much to have thought of me for this award ! The rules are rather complicated though, lol !
What a strange lake, what happened to these trees ? It looks like part of a horror movie, but beautiful in some way !

Hi Jeanette,

I hope you are feeling better?

Aw, those donkeys looked like they were mugging for the camera.

That lake looked to dangerous to skin in that low.

Dear Jan ~~ I am so sorry you have been unwell, and do hope abd pray that you will very soon be fit and well again.
Thank you so much for the lovely award which I will pick up and pass on very soon. Glad you liked "Just a
Mum" and Memories. The lake at Mulwala is very like the one at Nagambie isn't it? Take care, dear friend, Love, Merle.

Glad you are on the mend. Did you eat some of the bad tomatoes that are showing up here in the states?
Thanks for sharing your trip with us and the skier is either Brave or Dumb. Peace

Oh no! Not more of those 'mystery bugs'! When will they go away?!? Hope yours is all gone.

And thank you for being so sweet as to give me an Award. But oh dear, I don't create. So many bloggers do, but I just take pictures and write and blog pretty pics. But thank you, again.

Hi Jeanette -- I am glad you got that award, you do have a very nice blog.

Also I hope you are feeling better still after the weekend. I suppose it is about time for you to travel some more, you've got to get rested up.

Your donkey picture gets my vote. The abandoned farm house and machine are second. We have a lot of those in the U.S. also.

I would LOVE to see your country Jen. And I know you'd take me around and about. Oh and of course we'd have to stop by and have a lot of beers on the way for sure.

That's cool to know you and I have the same color decor in our rooms.

And most of all dear lady, thank you SO MUCH for the award you passed on to me! That is a great honor. I'll get it up as soon as I can, on my blog. For today tho, we have to start moving some furniture as the carpet cleaners are coming to do a few rooms. And while they're drying for the day, Bud and I are gonna boo-ga-loo out of here for the day.

You're a great lady and wonderful friend! Thanks again.

Get well soon.

COngratulations on your pretty award.
Thanks for posting the photos. I live seeing old abandon farm houses and barns. There's someting so peaceful yet lonely about them.
The lake certainly is low. We've had so much rain this spring that the rivers are quite high.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear that you hadn't been feeling well...I do hope that you're 100% better real soon:-) Congratulations on the well deserved award, dear Jen!!

I so enjoyed looking at all the pictures. Any time I see abandoned buildings like that farm shed, I always wonder how it used to be in its hey day. Goodness gracious, I hadn't noticed the boat and skier until you mentioned you say, taking his life in his hands with all those stumps!!! xoxo

Hi Jen. I hope you're feeling much better now. I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I'm nursing a cold and my head is hurting quite a bit. I'm here at Yohan's school waiting for his class to finish. I'm thankful for the free wifi. :)

Thanks for sharing all those interesting photos. Take care.

Hi Jeanette, They're nice pictures, I reckon my old boss at the farm would have given his right arm for a shed like that, especially is it has a few holes in the roof as well! Bob.
