Zippity-doo-dah ...

Clear blue sky. Temperature about 18C. Middle of winter. Southern Hemisphere. Wind towards the chilly at 24 kts. His great coat wraps around his ageing kidneys. His coffee steams as he sucks it down.

Yep. Everything is satisfactual ...

Zippity doo dah, Zippity aye,
My oh my what a wonderful day.
Plenty of sunshine coming my way,
Zippity doo dah, zippity aye.

Mister blue bird's on my shoulder,
It's the truth, It's actual,
Everything is satisfactual!
Zippity doo dah, zippity aye,
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

Lovely post Julie! One of my favorite songs too. I wish it were winter here.

Your Winter is warmer than our Summer!

Julie said...

Yep, BB. I suspect it is, a lot of the time.

The ships in the background makes it a picture close to poetry.

Please have a good new week ahead.

Terrific shot. Regarding my shot of the church at Glebe. They cleaned the exterior and renovated the interior since it is no longer to be used as a restaurant and probably be used for a residence. I've added a link the real estate agent's photos. The site also has development approval for additional town houses. I haven't photographed the one in Woollahra yet.

I love the top image. I don't know why, but it touches me deep inside.

I love the top photo. Time for reflection is what I see.

Buck said...

That first photo is magnificent. It perfectly conveys the chill of winter.

Love the top image Julie as well as your zippity doo dah's. Haven't heard that for ages. Wonderful

So nice to see the blue sky. I believe some do it is headed to us down south. Then we can sing Zippity doo dah too.

I'm back! Been wayfaring for a month -- escaping the winter chill. Got home yesterday and the weather seems nice but I do know it is only a temporary thing ... there is a lot of winter left to run.

Now to go back through all your posts while I was away.

Thanks now I have that song in my head for the rest of the night. Nice sunny blue days but it was freezing on the bridge yesterday.

What a wonderful and delicate post!

I do like that top image, Julie. Diligently ignoring the fact that your winter is considerably more inviting than the current London summer..

I think we certainly have much to be 'zippity doo dahing about here in Australia' Simple pleasures are often the best, a great view, good coffee..shame about the inevitable aging kidneys though!

I could have spent quite some time at a place like this, open space and what a greg view!


And you call this winter?:)

Julie said...

grin* ... yes, this is a typical winter's day where I come from ...
