What's that saying ?
" Blink and you'll miss it"
Well that's how I feel about 2011, but let's not grizzle about what we can't change.
My week has started with a box of tissues at hand.
No. 1 has shared his cold with me, thankyou ..........not!!
So, energy levels are fading rapidly.
I had high hopes for today after being woken by a certain someone wanting to come inside at 6.15am, grrrrr.
I was asleep, dreaming even, warm and cosy.
It's like a baby crying, hubby never hears Tig at the window.
So, I got up and stayed up.
It was a beautiful morning and lovely to be up early, even if it wasn't part of my plan.
Needle books are the 'happening thing' at the moment.
A little bit of stitching, a little bit of 'writing' and there you have it.
Chooks in the garden, hmmmmm........
"Sewing Forever, Housework Whenever" I wish......
"Sewing mends the soul" a little bit of stitching can be just the tonic you need some days.
Oops, uploaded the wrong pic.
My wee camera doesn't like taking closeups sometimes.
A 'Bgurk' brooch in the making.
And 'Bunny Love' is alive and kicking.
More brooches for my market stall.
This was all I had the energy for today. I had big plans but need to take it easy for a day or two.
I'm enjoying a cuppa while I post and then I think I might check out the back of my eyelids for 15 mins or so, just to recharge the batteries and get through the evening.
Autumn continues to spoil us with beautiful weather.
Cool evenings and mornings but brilliant sunny days with a temp. between 22 & 25 deg.
The leaves are colouring up, starting off quite dark but as the weeks pass they will turn scarlet and will standout like a beacon where they can be seen from well down the road.
Some beauties hiding in amongst the foliage.
So here 'tis April, a big month ahead.
No. 1 turns 20 that means I will be ............let's not go there, until we absolutely have to.
The photo on my calendar is of Reticulated Giraffes mother and bub, doing some mutual grooming.
Pic taken by Christopher Loffredo of Colorado while on safari in Samburu National Reserve in Kenya.
Thought it was quite appropriate for UK bloggers, as you've just enjoyed Mothers Day.
Hope you all had a lovely day and got to spend it with your families.
No. 1 and I will be keeping Kleenex in business for a couple of more days, but we are over the worst.
It's funny I haven't had a cold for 2 or 3 years, guess I was a bit run down after the lead up to the folk festival.
THANKYOU, for all your lovely comments on my last post. So nice to have you drop by and take an interest in what's happening in my corner of Oz.
I hope you all have a lovely week and get some beautiful blue sky, sunshiny weather.
The sort that makes you want to get outside and enjoy all that's happening around you.
It was at this time 4 years ago that hubby, No 1 and I visited the UK. We had a wonderful time and loved seeing all the Daffs and Bluebells in bloom, so I have been enjoying looking at beautiful photos on blogs.
Till next time, take care,
Claire X (oops maybe I better not get too close, hehehe....)
